Freshly Squeezed Reviews: Padding your iPad



Was there ever a doubt? The Apple community has always treasured individuality as a right to be exercised at every opportunity (although, ironically, we're all lusting after the same new piece of technology, simultaneously). So, you knew that skins for the iPad were on their way. And at the front of the line, of course, is MusicSkins LLC (http://www.music-skins.com/store/).

The Juice

MusicSkins LLC is offering up their entire catalog for your iPad. Choose from your favorite musical artist regardless of genre to adorn the back of your iPad. Or choose from various graphic artists and TV shows. Or be really individualistic and create your own custom skin.

They can be removed from your iPad and re-used on your iPad, as they peel off quite easily and leave no sticky residue. Their made of some form of vinyl that stands up quite impressively to daily abuse. 

The Pulp

What I find most interesting about MusicSkinz is not it's breadth of selection. But the fact that you can mix and match your mobile devices with your desktop computer. For example, you might choose to have the exact same rendering on all of your devices, be it from your Blackberry or iPhone, to your 15" laptop. Or you could establish a thread, using various images of the same artist or artistic collection. Or you could assign each device it's own identity.

As I mentioned earlier, the skins remove easily and leave no residue. Therefore, you could start a collection for any of your devices and switch your skins out to suit your mood. 

The Rind

Applying a skin to your iPad I found to be a bit difficult. It took me five tries. This had nothing to do with the Skinz but with the iPad itself. There is no flat surface to be found on the back of an iPad. So for me, at least, it took a while to get the Skinz positioned to my satisfaction.

Summary

As before, MusicSkinz has allowed me to express my personality, or on slow days, adopt one.

Their selection is as eclectic as it is extensive. I suggest that you spend at least a half an hour on their site. There's always something surprising that you'll stumble across.
