Booqpad in the test: Comfortable iPad sleeve with notepad and Apple Pencil holder

The booqpad can also be used excellently to watch films on the iPad.

Some time ago, the manufacturer booq provided me with an iPad case for a test report. The model I received fits the 9,7 inch iPad Pro, but the "booqpad", as the case is called, is also available for other iPad models (2/3/4 / Air 2 / Mini).

You can see how the booqpad works on the packaging. Here you can also see that the inner case can be detached from the case with the iPad (photos: Sir Apfelot).

Quality and functions

The build quality is, as I would expect from booq, on a high level. The material is nubuck inside and the outside is made of premium PU (polyurethane). The special features of the booq iPad case, however, are reflected in the features that I would like to briefly describe here.

Magnetism all around

If you have a pacemaker, you should perhaps look for a different cover, because there are a lot of magnets built into the booqpad. And the pacemaker is no joke - there is actually a warning for people with pacemakers in their sleeves. The magnets are used both to close the booqpad and to attach the inner cover. But more on that later ...

iPad Pro sleeve with notepad and holder for the Apple Pencil

If you have an iPad Pro, there is a high probability that you will also have an Apple Pencil. And since there is no suitable attachment for this on the iPad, a holder in the iPad sleeve is a useful addition. The booqpad has a fastening option inside that can not only hold an Apple Pencil but also a normal ballpoint pen. And this is exactly what you can use, as the booqpad offers space for a notepad in addition to the iPad Pro. And this is even included in the scope of delivery.

The booq case not only has space for the iPad Pro but also contains a notepad and can give a home to an Apple Pencil. Unfortunately, I switched too late and took the photos with an ordinary pen. I apologize! ;)

The cover in cover concept

When I tried it out for the first time, I honestly completely missed this feature, but actually you get two covers with the booqpad. One case is a tight-fitting PU construction into which the iPad Pro can be clicked. This case, in turn, has magnetic strips on the back with which it adheres to the booqpad. In this way you can use the iPad in the booqpad on the one hand and detach it from the booqpad with one movement and use it individually. If you want to reattach the iPad to the inside of the booqpad, simply place it on the magnetic strips and the iPad case will stick to the larger booq case. I hope the description was halfway understandable. Maybe you have to see it once to understand it. ;-)

The actual case into which the iPad is clicked is made of premium PU and contains magnetic strips that lock the case to the booq case.

Can be set up and used very flexibly

What particularly impressed me about the booqpad is the flexible area of ​​application that it offers:

  • it can be set up to watch a movie
  • you have a pen and / or Apple Pencil with you
  • it offers an integrated notepad (DIN A5) for handwritten notes
  • Thanks to the inner case, it offers good protection for the iPad Pro, so that even when using the iPad without the booqpad, the edges and corners as well as the back of the iPad are protected
  • the magnetic locking of the iPad and the magnetic lock make it very convenient to use
The booqpad can also be used excellently to watch films on the iPad.

Conclusion on the booqpad iPad case

I would say this case is particularly recommended for people who would like to be on the go with a notepad AND an iPad. From my point of view, this is the main feature of the booq case. The good workmanship and the use of magnets for fastening and for the closure are another plus point that certainly makes the case pleasant to use.

An iPad Pro sleeve with a holder for the Apple Pencil - I would say a useful accessory.
