Users of Apple’s iPad Air and iPad Air 2 now have a way of securing it to their leg for hands-free use in the cockpit or during other activities. The AppStrap for the iPad Air (5th Generation) uses a protective, form-fitting gel case that attaches with a Velcro link to a heavy-duty, adjustable leg strap and buckle. AppStrap’s unique Velcro-mating feature allows a user to instantly switch with one hand from portrait to landscape, share, or stow for takeoff or landing.
Like other AppStraps, the new product comes with two Tilt Pads that attach to the back of the gel case and leg strap with sewn-in Velcro strips to provide angled-up viewing and stability. These repositionable Tilt Pads also help to remove annoying glare. The iPad Air is easily fitted into or removed from the black form-fitting gel case. With the leg strap and Tilt Pads removed, the iPad Air is ready for out-of-cockpit use while remaining protected by the gel case.
