In Part 1 of this series, I went back to a previous post and considered why the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine doesn’t work for me. In Part 2 of this series, I now want to consider some options to make my iPad look and feel like Moleskine.
2. Dress an iPad like Moleskine…
I really like the look of this case, and it does definitely make my iPad look like a Moleskine notebook! For iPad Mini users, they’ve made DODOcase Classic for iPad Mini:
You can find this information on DODOcase’s FAQ page, but the DODOcase for iPad weighs just eight ounces! Apple’s iPad Smart Cover seems to weigh around five ounces, so using the DODOcase as a main case should not make an iPad (Mini) feel much heavier.
While DODOcase has been among the best covers to make our iPads look like Moleskine, Moleskine has recently released a cover for iPad at last:
from Moleskine Store
A big difference between this Moleskine cover and DODOcase’s one is that Moleskine’s comes with a Volant Notebook notepad. In some way, this approach is similar to Evernote Smart Notebook: both attempt to streamline the use of digital and physical notebooks. Unlike Evernote SmartNotebook, though, this Moleskine Cover for iPad just allows its users to use them simultaneously but independently and it does not come with effective functions to capture your notes.
Since I am currently using Apple’s Smart Cover, I have no plans to try either product at this moment… Paying 89.95 USD for Moleskine’s Cover for iPad sounds ridiculously expensive. DODOcase’s price tag of 59.95 USD is still expensive for me, but this cover more makes sense for integrating Moleskine and an iPad into one.
So to dress an iPad (Mini) like Moleskine, DODOcase seems like a better option for now!
