The product at this page is the PadFoot model for the iPad Air and iPad Mini (retina and non-retina). For PadFoot for iPad 1, go here. For PadFoot for iPad 2/3/4, go here.

PadFoot may just be the tiniest and simplest stand for the iPad, and it's now available in a wonderfully minimal version for both the iPad Air and the iPad Mini.
PadFoot clips to the corner of your iPad and holds it securely in a comfortable viewing position of about 12 degrees backward, in both portrait and landscape mode. It's great for watching movies and slideshows, for use with a wireless keyboard and for presentations.

Color options are seasonal and visible at the 'buy now' button. PadFoot works best on a flat, horizontal surface, and is intended for use with an iPad without a cover or a case. Slide your iPad all the way into the slot on PadFoot, while you rest the iPad on one of its sides without buttons; the round home button should be oriented either to the right, or to the bottom.

A wholesale set of 5 x PadFoot at reduced prices can be found here. If you have any feedback or questions on this product, please feel free to e-mail me directly at michiel(at)michielcornelissen(dot)com.

Hey @pete - good to hear from you. iPad Air version is in the works. It's a bit tricky with the smaller borders, but I have good hopes that it'll be available within a few weeks. Will let you know!

I think that the padfoot must have a beep who response at telephone signal because it may lost in hause because if you have a kids and he play at that and move anywhere because it's smal you didn't find and that i think that the beep it's very important. The link of the telephone and padfoot can be done with a aplication on the mobile phone.
