My relatives joke that we’re an Apple family. We have iPhones, an iPad and a MacBook. But I can’t help it they make such amazing products I’ve become addicted. But one thing I’m less than satisfied with are the accessories.
We have a handful of iPad cases and a speaker but they all lack versatility. I can lay a an iPad horizontally in a case, but not vertically. I can hook it up to speakers but I can’t stand it upright at the same time. Cases that are functional usually aren’t very protective. My friends say I’m too choosey. I disagree, like the saying goes “I’m satisfied with simply the best.” When I received my first iLuv product I was completely satisfied. We got the ArtStation a week ago and it’s become the family technology hub. The ArtStation is a speaker dock for your iPad, iPhone or iPod. It has this innovative arm that tilts and rotates so I can view my iPad horizontally or vertically and I can adjust the angle.
But for us the ArtStation is more than just a speaker for listening to music although that is exactly what my husband uses it for. At night when he is surfing the web or playing diablo he sets his iPhone on the dock so he can listen to Pandora. He likes that he doesn’t have to interrupt game play to switch songs or stations.
My daughter loves “her” ArtStation because she can sit at the desk and watch movies or practice her alphabet while playing a game. She likes to push my blue tooth keyboard up to the ArtStation so she can pretend to work – “just like mommy.”
But it’s mommy that really makes every single feature of the ArtStation work for me. I’ve always used my iPad for taking notes during online lecture, and the Kindle App holds the majority of my school books. So often times at night my desk looks like this…
If my book isn’t open I’m using the iPad to take notes or write. By setting it in the charging station my iPad is eye level. The ArtStation doesn’t interfere with my BlueTooth connectivity so I can use my keyboard too. At the same time the auxiliary port in back is connected to my Droid DNA playing some tunes to make the work a little less boring. Does it get any more versatile?
