What really makes the Nuud Lifeproof iPad cover stand head-and-shoulders above the others is the fact that it doesn’t cover the front screen of the iPad with a screen protector. Consequently, it won’t interfere with special styluses, or your finger. Nevertheless, it’s waterproof to a couple of metres (in case you drop it in the sink, or the swimming pool). Great for taking seaside videos on holiday where there’s lots of water and sand. You can take it on the ski slopes, as well.
The Nuud Lifeproof is more like a frame that sucks down on the contours of your iPad to create a waterproof seal. There is a pop-open cover to protect your 30-pin or lightning connector.
Don’t worry about muffling your stereo speakers, either. The Nuud Lifeproof cover actually enhances the sound (by making it louder), while still protecting the speakers from water, dirt, and snow.
If you want more protection, there is also a see-through cover available for the Lifeproof cover that has a built-in kick-stand to prop up the iPad in either portrait or landscaper orientations. It also will prop up the iPad at a convenient angle for using the virtual keyboard.
It’s worth watching the video to see what I mean.
I love the fact that you can drop this from waist height onto the concrete. I’ve actually done this a couple of times and dented mine, so I definitely need this!
There are also Nuud iPhone 5 cases!
UPDATE: Feb 2013
I just bought an iPhone 5 case. It isn’t “Nuud” – as they say. In fact, it has a plastic screen that covers the phone face.
It arrives as two pieces (front and back) that you put your phone into and then snap the two pieces together. They have a tight seal. There is a screw cap that protects the headphone input and they include a short stereo extension cable that can screw down over the headphone input (to create a watertight seal) and then plug your headphones into. This will prevent rain from getting into the stereo socket (if you like listening to music in the rain…)
Here’s a video (don’t lambast me, btw, this isn’t anything more than showing you what it looks like once it’s on the phone!)
