First Look

The Mivizu Croc Folio features a realistic looking crocodile skin pattern on the front, back and inside of the folio. The pattern on the front and back of the case are repeating, another way to distinguish real from imitation. The front cover of the folio is held in place with a strap and magnetic button that attaches to the rear of the case. When opened, we find the opening for the iPad screen on the right and a small pocket on the left.

There are cutouts for the iPad's ambient light sensor at the top and the Home button at the bottom. The pocket on the left could be used to hold documents, although keep in mind the iPad is smaller than a standard letter-size piece of paper, so you would need to fold a regular sheet of paper to store it here.

Around back we find a fold-down stand held in place by two buttons. The stand allows for hands-free viewing in portrait or landscape mode, although unfortunately there is no way to adjust the stand to manipulate the viewing angle of the iPad.

We can also see where the front cover snaps to the back of the case as well as the two straps that are used to hold the iPad in the case. As with the other straps, these are held in place with the same button-style snaps.

On the bottom of the case is a cutout for the docking connector as well as tiny holes for the iPad's speaker on the right. On top of the case are cutouts for the power button, microphone and headphone jack. Another section on the right side of the folio allows full access to the iPad's volume and mute switch. The left side of the case is solid as there are no buttons that need access here.

Let's move ahead and install our iPad in the Croc case.
