iPad Floor Stands - Tall Adjustable iPad Holders and Brackets

Updated on September 1, 2014

If you are looking for the most versatile form of iPad holder then look no further than the range of adjustable iPad floor stands on the market today. These are used for everything from a sheet music display for musicians, to a portable teleprompter for delivering speeches and lectures, to a handfree eBook reader in bed to a portable movie viewer to go hands free whilst laying on your back on the couch. A floor stand for iPad 2 or original iPad tablet opens up a wide range of additional uses for the device making it the ideal companion piece for any lover of Apple's top selling tablet.

As any iPad owner knows, that slim, 'lightweight' tablet doesn't feel all that light after you've been holding it up in your hands for even a few minutes. Finding the right viewing angle whilst seated, laying down or standing up working can also be something of an annoyance and many of the adjustable stands on the market today take up a lot of desk space or need to be mounted someplace like a metal rail or edge of a table which makes their positioning equally limited.

iPad floor display stands are a completely multifunctional alternative to all of these other docks and holders, providing their users with an all-in-one solution for just about anywhere they would want to mount and use their iPad hands free.

An adjustable free standing iPad stand doesn't need a mounting point. Instead, any level floor surface where you can rest the base of the stand is all you need and then you adjust and swivel the stand and the docking cradle around to provide yourself with the perfect height and level of tilt whether sitting, standing, laying flat on your back or standing on your head (!) you'll be able to adjust a floor stand for iPad tablets to suit your needs.

This is great to use as a bedside iPad holder allowing you to read without the fear of worrying you might fall asleep and drop your iPad onto the floor.
