No doubt, Apple’s Smart Cover is an innovative protective cover and kickstand for iPad 2, but if you want to enjoy the creative product on your original iPad, Smartsnap should be able to help you.
As we know, iPad 2 comes with built-in magnets on both sides in order to absorb Smart Cover and achieve the sleep/wake-up function, while Smartsnap is a connection kit designed for original iPad, which lets you apply Smart Cover to your iPad. As shown in following demo video, the connection kit contains several clear decals used for fixing and the main magnetic strap.
When all these are applied, Apple Smart Cover will also work well with your original iPad, but note that except protecting the iPad’s screen and offer you a lower angle for typing, the Smart Cover can’t wake up or get your iPad sleep, or hold it in landscape viewing mode.
Smartsnap is priced at $20 USD, while the perfectly matched Smartgrips designed to protect the edge of iPad costs $5 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Smartfix official site for more details.
