I had the opportunity to use  the iKlip during a performance. Where , as a singer, I would usually use printed lyrics on paper to refer to during a performance, the iKlip was an amazing replacement. Aside from the fact that iKlip with my iPad looks looks real cool, in an outdoor performance the iKlip/iPad combination didn’t blow around like the paper lyrics do and then in a dark environment, you can see the information on the iPad because  of course, the iPad is back lit. The iKlip is quite adjustable in terms on angles and can orient the iPad for a landscape or portrait position. Unfortunately, once you set up the orientation on the iKlip, it takes a bit if re-assembly to change the orientation. But other than the orientation situation, the iKlip is a wonderful, useful tool for musicians and singers who wish to use their iPad attached to a mic stand at a proper viewing angle, instead of chasing the ancient paper method as your lyrics or music flutter away in the wind.
