GorillaPod iPad Stand

Last night, I purchased “Awaken“, a pretty cool clock/alarm app for my iPad. I wanted to try it out as a bedside clock, but to do that I needed a stand of some sort so I could stand up my iPad on my bedside table. My previous theory was that a simple business card holder would make a decent iPad stand, but I didn’t have one handy. What I did have handy, was my Gorillapod (SLR). Turns out they make a perfect iPad stand. Rubber grips, flexible legs, works in portrait or landscape mode, super-stable. Perfect. I dub thee “GorillaPad Stand” (and yes, probably infringe on 2 trademarks at once).

      Too bright to have right next to the bed, but it can be set to dim the screen down. It'd be nice to have a dimmer control right there on the clock so you could easily switch it, or the ability to just make the screen go completely black, but come back with a tap perhaps?

      Just discovered something cool by mistake. If you swipe the screen up or down while in clock mode, it has an in-app brightness adjustment. Using this, you can turn it right down to barely a glow and it'd be fine to have next to a bed.
