AppStrap Compatibility with New iPad Air 2 and Mini 3

The iPad Air 2 is now available. It is .5mm thinner than its predecessor. The AppStrap Air, AppStrap 5, and the Conversion Kit are all well-suited for the new device. For more info, see below.
The iPad Mini 3 is exactly the same size as the earlier versions and will work perfectly with the AppStrap Mini Gel case. The AS-5 is compatible with iPad Mini cases like the OtterBox, Gumdrop, and Survivor. For more info, see below.

AppStrap Compatibility
*AS-5: The AS-5 works with nearly any tablet in a case. Without a case, the AS-5 “works” but it does not provide the streamlined fit found in our other products. It should be noted that the AS-5 does NOT fit the Lifeproof FRĒ for ipad mini. 


*AS-1: The AS-1 “works” with the iPad Air 1 and 2, but it does not provide the streamlined fit found in our other products. Though you can use it, we recommend the AS-Air or the AS-Conversion Kit (CK) for use with your iPad Air 1 and 2.


iPad Air 2 AppStrap Compatibility

AppStrap Air
The AS-Air was developed shortly after the release of the first iPad Air. The iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than its predecessor. In our tests, the AS-Air fit the iPad Air 2 quite well. The 18% size difference was not enough to noticeably alter the stability of the gel case on the iPad.

AppStrap 5
The AS-5 was developed to fit heavy-duty cases like the OtterBox, Survivor, and Gumdrop cases. It will work well on cases that are less than one inch thick. The AS-5 uses two polycarbonate clips to secure the strap to the tablet.

AppStrap Conversion Kit (CK)
Another good option for the iPad Air is the AS-CK. A user simply applies an adhesive Velcro strip directly to the back of any tablet or case. The strip mates to the leg strap along with two Tilt Pads for enhanced viewing.

AppStrap 1
Though the AS-1 is compatible with the iPad Air 1 & 2, we recommend the AS-Air which will yield a much better fit.
The AS-1 can be used with the iPad Air 1 & 2 with or without a case. Sans case, users need simply to attach the pre-cut self-adhesive foam pads (included) to the inside of the clips.
The AS-1 clips also work with Apple’s Smart Cases. The clips attach with the cover either open to the side or folded over the back. In or out of a case, the slotted end of the AS-1 clip allows the micro charger cable to be plugged in.
The Smart Case for the iPad Air is a great case and comes in several materials: all very well constructed, and low profile (they typically retail $40-80). As other similar low-profile cases come on the market, they should also work well with the AS-1 or the AS-5.

 

iPad Mini 1-3 and 4 AppStrap Compatibility


AppStrap Mini
The AS-mini 1-3 was designed for the iPad Mini generations 1-3. The form-fitting gel case provides protection for the iPad Mini 1, 2, and 3. The new iPad mini maintains the dimensions of its predecessors and is fully compatible with the AS-Mini 1-3.

The iPad mini 4 has different ports and required a redesign of the AS-Mini. The AS-mini 4 addresses this issue and fits the new device perfectly.

AppStrap Conversion Kit (CK)
Another good option for the iPad Air is the AS-CK. A user simply applies an adhesive Velcro strip directly to the back of any tablet or case. The strip mates to the leg strap along with two Tilt Pads for enhanced viewing.

Looking to convert your iPad Air to a kneeboard?  Check out the AppStrap 1 and Conversion Kit.

AppStrap 1– The mouth of this clip is approximately .5 inches thick (without the foam pads). It fits the following devices without cases: iPad Air, iPad 1, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, 10.1, Tab 3 10.1, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 It also fits well over most slim-line cases. For example, it fits over the Smart Case for the iPad Air (cover open or folded underneath).

AppStrap 2/3/4– These clips are designed to be used with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Gen iPads. The clips work whether the iPad is in a Smart Case or a Smart Cover is attached. (These clips do not work on other devices.)

AppStrap 5– This clip is approximately .75 inches thick. It works with the Otterbox Defender series, Griffin Survivor Series, and Gumdrop Drop Tech Series. The AppStrap 5 also works very well with the Otterbox Defender case.

AppStrap Gel 2/3/4 – This gel case fits the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Gen iPads.

AppStrap Conversion Kit– The self-adhesive Velcro strip can be applied to the back of any device or case. It mates with Velcro on the leg strap. This product will work on any iPad or tablet with or without a case. The self-adhesive strip is not permanent but removal can result in damage to some material surfaces.

If you happen to buy the wrong product, please call us, and we will be glad to swap out your clip strap for another version.

 

The new iPad Mini with Retina Display has the same form factor as the original Mini so it works with the AppStrap Mini gel case.  The new iPad Mini is only imperceptibly thicker and slightly heavier.  But, it still fits perfectly in our gel case.

iPad3 & AppStrap Pilot Kneeboard Flying High!

The response to the iPad3 so far has been far-out. Individual pilots, crews, 135’s, even whole airports are moving the iPad. What product overwhelmed aviation like the iPad? Give us a comment squawk with your thoughts!

Team AppStrap has seen a similarly positive trend with the advent of the first flying weather of the season and this new and improved tablet by Apple. Our design goal is still to impose minimal “stuff” to the beautiful work Apple has done. Whether you’re flying with a case or a bare iPad – the AppStrap has a kneeboard for you!

Thanks for supporting us folks. It tells us we’re on the right track.

If you have any comments or feedback for us call or write anytime.

The AppStrap Team!
