Let's face it: Browsing the internet on your iPad takes two hands. One hand holds the device; the other hand swipes. Fine, but the approach no longer works if, for example, you want to watch a step-by-step video as you work on fixing the lawn mower. That's when you realize the importance—nay, the necessity—of an iPad stand. You could buy one, sure, but it's easy to build your own. It might only take a few minutes, and you can use parts you likely have already.
