Better way to use your new iPad at home or office with HoverBar
Usually when im out and about my iPad is sitting in my bag until I get to my destination and in some cases use it as a satnav in my car or read the news feeds whilst having a nice capuccino in Starbucks.
When I get home or back to my office I find that I tend to leave it on the table somewhere rendering it absolutely redundant. If you are thesame as me well I have a good news because Twelve south HoverBar solves that issue; it allows you to easiy have your iPad hooked unto your iMac, desk or in my case I went over the top and had my screen suspended so I hooked it on the bar holding my LCD displays. When I saw the packaging, it was well designed, instructions were straight forward for installation and within minutes I was all setup leaving me feeling like Tony Stark.

Now I have my iPad as extra screen with airplay when im on my iMac or use it as a todo list, preview screen for when im updating GadgetsBoy, twitter updates or like I did last night watch skygo whilst I work.
HoverBar hangs iPad 2 beside your Mac, letting you use iPad as a secondary, touchscreen computer. The flexible HoverBar arm positions iPad in a place where you can keep tabs on Twitter, stocks or partake in a FaceTime chat. As a bonus, you can use HoverBar separately to float iPad 2 as a micro workstation, a handy kitchen mount or as a tool that elevates iPad, creating a whole new way to interact with apps.
Although it serves it’s purpose for me, the only con is that I have to remove my iPad case every time I need to use the HoverBar; other than that, it is very sturdy with padded clamp, easy to maneuver to different angles for use and best of all you can use it in various situations.
What else do you do with your iPad?
