CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Just Mobile Encore high-design iPad stand Review & Giveaway!!




Mostly every­one I know now has an iPad. Whether it is an iPad 1, 2, or 3, they all require stands as far as I am con­cerned. If you want to type or watch movies on your iPad, a stand is absolutely manda­tory. And Just Mobile car­ries the best iPad stands avail­able today!

When you need to use the iPad for read­ing or what­not, the only option is to get an iPad stand to raise the screen just like when you open the lid on a lap­top. These are highly ben­e­fi­cial since noone, espe­cially myself, likes to watch Net­Flix movies while try­ing to maneu­vre a setup where I could actu­ally view the movie with­out hav­ing to con­tin­u­ally hold it up. I’ve tried this so many times and failed unfor­tu­nately. The iPad just kept slid­ing down, and it is immensely frus­trat­ing to say the least!!





I also dis­like hav­ing to lay on my bed and use my iPad while it is lay­ing flat. This also irri­tates me to no end. My arms and hands fall asleep, due to poor cir­cu­la­tion of course! If I am not com­fort­able, I am crabby, and I am sure that you all can cer­tainly relate!

You’ve got your­self an iPad, and you’ve prob­a­bly started to realise that it gets kinda heavy after a while; but rather than perch it up against some­thing on your desk or against a wall, you can buy a num­ber of stands that promise to take the bur­den out of prop­ping it up so you can go about enjoy­ing your iPad in style. Just Mobile is surely a God send as you can find just about any handy iPad stand going!


“Just Mobile started life in 2005 with a sim­ple mis­sion: to cre­ate the most styl­ish mobile acces­sories in the world.

2007 the iPhone arrived and we fell head-over-heels in love. We put all our old projects aside, and began work on cre­at­ing the most beau­ti­ful pos­si­ble stand to show off Apple’s lit­tle won­der. The result was the Xtand™ – it won a bunch of awards and, more impor­tantly, took pride of place on the desks of thou­sands of iPhone fans. We’ve never looked back.

These days, we pro­duce a wide range of pre­mium acces­sories – from inno­v­a­tive stands for lap­tops to styl­ish backup bat­ter­ies for iPods. Stuff peo­ple love. Even our mouse­mat has won a red­dot design award.

Every­thing that we make is guided by our vision to unify form and func­tion – and then sprin­kle a lit­tle joy on top. Because that’s the best way we can think of to cre­ate iconic acces­sories suit­able for iconic products.

We’ve also attracted awards: In 2009, Cool­ing Bar™ won the iF design award. Alupad™and Gum Plus™ are win­ners of red­dot design 2010, also design­preis Deutsch­land nom­i­nee 2011. At CES 2011 Slide™  and Encore™ were selected as “Best of Show” by iLounge. The same year, Lazy Couch™, Alu­Pen™ and Gum Plus™ were iF design award win­ners. Gum Plus™ and Lounge™ received GOOD DESIGN from The Chicago  Athenaeum Archi­tec­ture and Design Museum. The list goes on.

We believe in qual­ity and design. We know you do too.”





I was ecsta­tic to find Just Mobile on the inter­net who so kindly agreed to a review and give­away with us at Cool­Canucks! I chose to review the Encore high-design iPad stand from Just Mobile, and it hon­estly exceeded my expectations!!

This is the Best iPad stand out there today in my truly hon­est opin­ion. It is extremely well built, durable, and is beau­ti­fully fin­ished using only the best mate­ri­als. It folds up flat (the dimen­sions are 15.3 x 15.3 x 3.5 cm or 6.0 x 6.0 x 1.4 inches) and it is so easy to carry with you and cer­tainly is not heavyat all. The grippy rub­ber base ensures no slip, back rest is also infi­nitely adjustable and holds in what­ever angle you set it for. Your iPad can be laid back almost flat to allow on-screen typ­ing, or raised more ver­ti­cal to use iPad as a dig­i­tal photo frame when it is not being used. The base is small enough to allow it to be used on an air­plane tray table to watch movies and so forth. The Encore high-design iPad stand even works well with the iPad in a leather folio case with­out hav­ing to remove it!

I absolutely love this stand.





“Designed by the award-winning team at tools®, the Encore™ fea­tures a solid alu­minum base ring and hinged arm. Adjust the arm to choose the per­fect view­ing angle for videos, or fold it down for rock-solid typ­ing sup­port. The Encores rub­ber­ized arm and base will keep your iPad scratch-free, and hold it firmly in place in both por­trait and land­scape modes.With top-quality com­po­nents and a precision-engineered hinge, the Just Mobile Encore™ is built to deliver a stun­ning per­for­mance time after time.”

Fea­tures :
•Com­pat­i­ble with all iPads
•Iconic design by tools
•High-quality alu­minum con­struc­tion
•Fold­able for porta­bil­ity
•Com­pat­i­ble with most tablet com­put­ers
•Solid sup­port for typing



I am now sold on every­thing that Just Mobile car­ries, and rec­om­mend this phe­nom­e­nal com­pany to every­one! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as the prod­uct deliv­ery time were also beyond outstanding!!
