This is a great case for any iPad owner who needs or wants impact protection.
I confirmed with GumDrop that the iPad 3 case is the iPad 2 case without any changes made. So you can buy this case for either model. It fits my iPad 3 perfectly and I am very pleased. My first out of the box reaction was the plastic seems cheap (until I tried the new Otterbox case, now it doesn't seem as cheap). The plastic fits on the front of the iPad and has a few places where it wraps around the iDevice, mainly the rear camera, headphone port, dock connector and the orientation/mute switch. The plastic piece holds the iPad very tightly. Next a rubber piece covers the back, sides, and most of the front bezel. Compared to the new Otterbox iProtection Defender Case this is one of the areas the GumDrop shines.
This case feels great in your hands. Considering how tablets are meant to be held, this is very important. The rubber has a nice grippy feel with out being too sticky. The tire...
We bought this based on another review, and so glad we did. My son who uses this has multiple neurological disorders that result in destructiveness and impulsiveness. His iPad has been awesome in helping with schoolwork and learning, and entertaining, but we were leery about him using such an expensive and portable piece of technology. This case has done a wonderful job of protecting his iPad. He even took it in the shower with him one time. I wouldn't recommend that, but his iPad is still working! It's been 10 months of daily use and sometimes abuse, and all is well. Would buy this case again and highly recommend it to others.
Our family's has 4 Gumdrop cases--one for a Kindle Fire, one for a Nook Tablet and two for our iPads (iPad 2 & iPad4). We've used several of the usual starter cases, but after a friend recommended Gumdrop to us it's the only case we use. We have twin 6-year olds so all the tablets get a lot of use and go through a lot of unintentional drops. Not saying they get thrown down the stairs, but they have been dropped from table/bed height (landing flat and on corners) without missing a beat. The vital ports are easily accessible and the buttons seem easier to use than without a cover.
When I picked up the new iPad a few weeks ago I wasn't sure if Gumdrop made a case to fit so we grabbed the Griffin Survivor series at Best Buy. I'm sure the Griffin case would protect the iPad, but the shell felt slippery and there was a rubber cover for the camera and speakers that you have to pop open and swivel out of the way to use them (and the speaker one kept falling off). After some looking...
