Most of the foldable iPad stands can be used only on a desk. They are too unstable for uneven surfaces. Here is a better solution.
Are you looking for a stand that you can use to handle video meetings or put the iPad a bit higher?
The biggest problem with iPad stands
Most foldable stands can be used only on flat surfaces. What about a stand that you could use on a sofa or in a bed?
You can obviously rely on an iPad case that has a built-in stand – but not every case is good enough. For instance, a popular tri-fold case is too unstable to let you comfortably watch movies in a bed.
It is perfect if you want to comfortably watch movies or make video calls on a sofa or in a bed. The stand is cozy but extremely stable – it has strong resilience but is not easy to deform.
The most important feature is a multi-level stand. There are three grooves on each side, and each side offers a different viewing angle. As a result, you will be able to position your iPad at six different angles.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
