A look at GelaSkins for iPad 2
If you have had other iOS devices then this iPad accessory maker is not new to you. GelaSkins creates protective iPad 2 covers and skins are one of the best in the iPad accessories industry. GelaSkins designs very stylish vinyl decals which can pimp out your iPad 2 more than the typical clear protectors. We really like this iPad 2 accessory because they are easy to apply to your iPad. Gelaskins are a dry application so you can remove them countless times without any residue left on your iPad 2. GelaSkins for the iPad 2 are high quality, beautiful, with a plethora of designs by artists. It is really great to be able to design your own custom iPad 2 cover so that it reflects you. The Gelaskins website has a tool that allows you to upload your own photograph or artwork. Then you crop and adjust it to your liking bam you are ready for Gelaskins to produce your one-of-a-kind iPad skin. ZAGG also offers some great iPad 2 accessories that protect your device including ZAGGskins but Gelaskins has probably the best selection of stylish designs to choose from. GelaSkins is based and manufactured in Ontario, Canada so you will need to allow an extra few days for standard delivery.
Once you receive your GelaSkins you’ll find the install instructions to be very clear (see video demo below the break). We followed each install step and were able to apply the iPad 2 GelaSkins in about 15 minutes. They ship with one for the front, the other for the back and it took the longest for the back side of about 10 minutes to apply it. Lining up the Gelaskin and adhering it to the rounded corners and cutout sections on the iPad 2 was the most challenging part of this process. However, it is not like heart surgery because this 3M quailty film easily moves around so you can align it precisely onto your iPad 2. So if you are not wanting to go bare with your new iPad then this iPad accessory is a good defence against scratches and offers UV protection. The price for our GelaSkins selection was $29.95 and you can check out their store here.
