Dodocase has updated its popular journal-style cases with new, much stronger milled bamboo interior tray. The company says the tray is 230 percent stronger than the previous version and about 2x the strength of competing products they've tested (for the record, I'm not saying that, Dodocase is). The company has expanded its line, and now has three new models to choose from.
For an extra fee ($9.95), you can also personalize your case with an inscription. And adding a hole for the iPad's back camera will set you back another $4.95.
We've been fans of previous models of this case and should note that while it doesn't fold into a stand like some folio-style cases, you can fold the cover back and put the case in "easel mode" to prop up your iPad for video watching. To keep the case standing in easel mode on super slick surfaces, a Dodocase rep gave us a little tip: "Stand the back edge of the cover on the elastic ribbon by extending underneath the cover." Good to know.
These cases come in a variety of exterior and interior colors and Dodocase takes pride in the fact that they're all made in America (San Francisco).
