Can’t get a good grip on your slick but slippery iPad? Check out the HandStand ($50, available in black, pink, or white), a snap-on iPad case fitted with an elastic strap in the back attached to a swiveling, palm-friendly “handpad,” good for rotating the iPad’s screen a full 360 degrees.

iLounge took the “sturdy and structurally solid” HandStand for iPad 2 for a whirl (a version for the original iPad came out last year) and praised its “smooth” rotating and “secure, but not uncomfortable” hand strap. That said, the reviewers complained about the “somewhat difficult” process of snapping the iPad into the HandStand’s shell. Another problem: the case’s lip, which blocks the iPad 2’s built-in microphone.
