CaseApp iPad mini skin – review and giveaway

I reviewed for CaseApp a while ago when I treated Daddy P to a new phone case.  He’s been really impressed with the quality of the case and I was impressed with their service. A while ago I treated myself to an iPad mini. I bought a case that covered the screen at the time, but I didn’t realise that it didn’t cover the back until it arrived.  It’s been on my ‘to do’ list for a while to get this sorted so I was really pleased to be offered a CaseApp iPad mini skin to review recently.

With CaseApp you can customise your own phone and tablet cases and skins along with MacBook skins.  I brought my iPad mini specifically to help with blogging when I’m out and about and to make app reviews easier to do using a larger screen.  With that in mind I decided to make a personalised skin for my iPad with a bit of blog branding.  If I didn’t have something specific in mind I could have used one of the many CaseApp templates.

I have a photo of Monkey and I that was taken nearly 2 years ago now (eek!) but I love it, it’s part of my blog header, is on my business cards, phone case and a canvas that hangs in my living room.

The upload process is really easy, if I’d been creating my skin as a present I think I’d have been tempted to go for a photo collage.  Once I’d uploaded my photo, I could adjust it to fit the size of my iPad, turn it round etc.  As soon as I was happy with the alignment of the photo itself I added my text, you can change text colour, size and alignment.  I wish there were a few more fonts to choose from, but that was my only niggle. My order was then ready to process, and I waited eagerly for my iPad mini skin to arrive.

The skin arrived as a flat sheet and I just needed to peel away from the backing and place on my iPad.  I must admit I was worried I’d totally cock it up, but it really was super easy to fix.  I just lined up the holes along the edge of the skin with my iPad control and it went on smoothly.

No bubbles, no need to reapply.  Success and I am really pleased with the result too. For £17.00 I’m thrilled with my new blog skin and I’ve got some exciting news to share with you too.  The quality is good and I think the photographic image has come out well too.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
