Made from the same semi-hard TPU plastic as several of Hard Candy's earlier iPad cases, the same company's Gumdrop Case-branded Moto Skin for iPad ($40) is a grippy case with a tire tread theme, available in four colors. Leaving the iPad's ports, buttons, speakers and microphone exposed, Moto Skin otherwise protects all of the device's body save for the screen -- once again, no screen protector is included in the package. Tailoring of the holes is better here than on earlier Hard Candy cases, and though the plastic remains a little more tricky to pull onto the iPad than some of the thinnest, softest rubber case competitors, it isn't quite as susceptible to flopping open during regular use.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
