I've been using the iPad Air exclusively for 8 months now instead of computers. My Apple Smart Cover is totally worn out, it's broken now as a living proof of how much I have been using it. Many hours every day for 8 months. Almost 900 blog posts and a lot of videos produced on the iPad Air during this time. That's a lot.
I won't buy a new smartcover though, because I don't know if it will be compatible with the new iPad Air 2 when it's released. So it will be a lot harder to create content without it now. But I will figure something out. Check this video out!
