Position your iPad as a secondary monitor or anywhere else w/ Twelve South HoverBar 3: $75 shipped (Reg. $100)

Amazon offers the Twelve South HoverBar 3 for $74.99 with free shipping, which is 25% below its regular price and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Features include:

  • HoverBar clamps almost anywhere for adjustable hands-free use of your iPad
  • Heavy duty yet delicate clamp secures to any surface up to 1-inch thick 
  • Creates a hands-free kitchen mount or desktop workstation with no install required
  • Includes extra kickstand that creates a handy tabletop display
  • Includes Fit Clips for iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad (2nd – 4th generation)

Combo it with Duet for iOS and you’ll have a killer dual monitor setup.

Our conclusion after reviewing the Hoverbar 3:

For most people, it’s kind of a luxury item. It’s not that difficult to use an existing or cheaper stand to position the iPad roughly where you want it on a desk or kitchen worktop, and not too great a hardship to hold it while watching movies or reading books in bed.

But I have to say that within a very short time, I came to rely on it. The ability to place the iPad exactly where you want it, and to indulge in the sheer laziness of having it hover above the pillow in bed, is very appealing.

My only minor gripe is that the hex-nut system for applying the clamp means it’s not an instant job to move it from one place to the other. It’s not difficult, but some kind of flip-handle clamp would be great. But if you mostly expect to use it on one place, and just need to push it out of the way the rest of the time, leaving the clamp in place, it’s highly recommended.

Twelve South makes really great accessories for Apple products, but if you’re looking to save even more money then you could go with this similar iPad mount from Taotronics for $35.99.

Most iPad accessory makers work tirelessly to design a product that echoes Apple’s signature design. Griffin and Rail Yard Studios’ Rail Artifact Stand does the opposite. Instead of melting away during use, its one of a kind design not only stands out, but in my opinion, steals the spotlight. Just as its name indicates, the Rail Artifact Stand is made from authentic early 1900’s railroad pieces. From pitted steel to worn edges, every stand shows its history in a unique way… expand full story

Just-Mobile is an award-winning design company behind some of the best accessories for your iPhone, iPad, Mac and other gadgets. We’ve taken a look at several of their products in the past and always came away thoroughly impressed with the build quality and thoughtful designs of these items.

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the UpStand for iPad, which is a ‘high-style’ iPad stand with a focus on design and function. You can find several low-cost tablet stands all over Amazon and eBay and those may do the trick for some people, but there’s also those who appreciate accessory makers who take the time to design products that complement their Apple gear. Just-Mobile is that company. Keep reading to see if the UpStand lives up to our lofty expectations…
