REVIEW: Snugg Ultra Thin iPad 3 Smart Case

July 29, 2013
Snugg Ultra Thin iPad 3 Smart Case

Back last year when we finally succumbed and purchased an iPad 3 we fell into that naive group of people who purchase the branded case at point of purchase as we didn’t know about other cases available on the market. The Snugg recently contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their cases and I opted for the Snugg Ultra Thin iPad 3 Smart Case.

Key features:


  • Lightweight, barely adds bulk
  • Full access to all ports and connection points
  • Protects both the front and the back of the iPad 3
  • Magnetic cover for quick application
  • Folds to an appropriate angle for typing, reading or anything else

My reasoning for choosing the ultra thin case above the other case types available is that it is similar to what we currently have although offers protection to the back of the iPad.

It’s funny to think that when we originally purchased the iPad it was for use by Mr Boo and I, easy access for me to monitor my emails and social media, and for Mr Boo to do some work on in the evenings. Instead it has somehow managed to become a family iPad by which I mean, Roo’s iPad. She uses it far more than either Mr Boo or I, from playing Sonic Dash to watching her favourite films via Flixster.

Great for watching films

The Snugg Ultra Thin case allows her to watch her favorite films hands free, by simply folding up the front cover and standing up it gives a stable vertical stand.

Perfect for working/typing

By laying folding up the front cover and laying the iPad down you can easily switch from film watching to a tilted screen perfect for working, typing or playing apps.
