Newertech GripBase Podium for iPad
NewerTech Media Coverage
I am a musician and music composer/producer. I use my iPad at gigs and in the studio in a variety of ways. I recently tried the GripBase Podium and found it to be well built and very useful.
I used it on a gig to display lyrics on my iPad. A serious consideration for me is the stability of such a device. I found the weighted base and stand to be very stable and the ability to adjust to various heights and viewing angles excellent. I used it with an app called OnSong. The app makes it super easy to fin the lyrics to most any song. It also has a feature that allows you to have to lyrics "scroll" down over time. You can adjust the time for each song for hands free operation...very useful!
I also used it in my recording studio to position my iPad perfectly when using guitar amp simulation apps to record with.
The GripBase Podium is a well designed, portable and inexpensive addition to my iPad accessories and now that I have it I can't imagine being without it. Well done!
