In Use

The iPad is a great device, but you really need a case to keep the thing safe. The iPad can also get uncomfortable after a long period of use if you are looking down at the screen al the time. Joby has a new product for the iPad called the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad.

The thing is a combination of a removable pair of the articulating legs Joby is famous for with a white plastic iPad case. The case is a press on style that stays on the iPad using friction. The two legs are long and easy to bend to the shape you want.

The flexible nature of the legs allows you to get any height you want out of the iPad screen when propped up. The case has two mounting tabs for the legs with one for landscape and the other for portrait.

The flexible legs can also be wrapped around things in the house or the car to hold the iPad at eye level. I tend to use my iPad on the couch and I really liked being able to wrap the articulating legs around my leg to use both hands for typing on the iPad.

The GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad is one of those very simple and very effective little accessories that you see and don’t think much of until you use it. The Yogi is very handy when you are trying to watch video or read. I was able to use it in the car to wrap around the headrest for my daughter to watch video while we drove even.

You can angle the screen from almost vertical to laying only a half-inch or so of the surface. The articulating legs also mean that you can stand the iPad on uneven ground. The case isn't the sort I would want to use on my iPad all the time for traveling. I would opt for a case with more protection in that instance, but as a stand, the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad is undeniably cool, easy to use, and just plain works.



  • Easy to use
  • Lots of adjustability


  • Case section may not offer much protection from drops


The GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad is a fantastic little case that has legs you can bend to your will to support the iPad just about any way you can imagine.
