Compass 2 from TwelveSouth gives iPad users a go-anywhere, multipurpose stand.

Compass-1TwelveSouth, a company known for creating breathtaking Apple companion products, announce the release of Compass 2, a multipurpose stand for iPads. This redesigned version of its go-anywhere stand is compatible with all iPads including iPad Air and iPad Mini. Compass 2 offers a convenient locking rear leg for desktop use and a FaceTime-friendly viewing angle.

Compass-2Unlike many built-in iPad case stands, Compass 2 holds your iPad in both landscape and portrait orientations. Compass 2 is so lightweight, it can be slipped into any case for easy transport. Compass 2 has a hidden secondary leg that folds down, transforming it into a comfortable typing stand so you can tackle Pages documents, emails or your next blog post. Because of its small footprint, Compass 2 can be used virtually anywhere for almost anything. When you’re done, Compass 2 folds flat and stores inside its included travel sleeve, making it one of the most portable stands on the market.

“People sometimes ask me why they need a Compass for their iPad,” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “It’s simple: 1) Compass holds iPad in Portrait mode for better video conferencing; 2) It’s way more stable in a bumpy airplane or train than the case-based stands; and 3) It lets you use a more minimal case (or no case) because it adds the hands-free or typing stand when you need it. Compass 2 is the ultimate tool for the iPad road warrior, truly expanding the ways you use your iPad.”

Super light and compact, Compass 2 is the ideal companion stand for iPad. Available in iPad Silver, Tactical Black and Candy Apple Red, Compass 2 can be purchased through the Apple Store or TwelveSouth. It retails for $39.99.
