Scosche FoldIO

Scosche's case is the slimmest folio here, and has a neat gimmick. The iPad clips onto the one side of the FoldIO as it might into a hard case. The two left-most clips are loose enough to allow the left edge of iPad to flip out of them and be slotted into one of the notches on back of the case's cover. It makes for a good stand. Unfortunately, the cover latch, a solid, curved strip of leather-covered plastic, attaches to the iPad so tightly, it can push the tablet out of the clips holding it to the case. And the cover of the folio doesn't fold flat against the back of the case so it's not very comfortable to hold when reading.

Twelve South BookBook

BookBook
BookBook

A truly bonkers zip-closed iPad case that packs your tablet in what appears to be an ancient leather-bound tome. If you live in a stately home, you can tuck it away in your library and no one will know where your iPad is hidden. If you're a Steampunk, this is the case for you. For the rest of us, it's cute, yes, but ultimately impractical since it's not the most comfortable folio to hold open, and you'll need to remove the iPad to sync it.
