Why would I want to float my iPad next to my Mac?
HoverBar creates the ultimate Apple multi-computing workstation by floating iPad next to any iMac or Apple Display. While your Mac is running Mail, Pages or Keynote, your iPad can display a FaceTime chat, Twitter or your favorite live weather app.
Can I use HoverBar and my iPad to create a secondary monitor?
Absolutely. Our favorite dual-screen app at Twelve South is Air Display by Avatron Software. Two other options are iDisplay by SHAPE Services and Mirror Display by Phyar Studio.
I use my MacBook Pro with a non-Apple display. Is there a way I can still use HoverBar?
Sure. Rather than attaching HoverBar to the back of your monitor, you can simply attach it to the edge of your desk and float iPad near your monitor or over your MacBook.
Is there any benefit to owning a HoverBar if I only have an iPad?
You bet. HoverBar makes an excellent stand alone display for iPad. Attach HoverBar to a table and pair an external keyboard and mouse and now you have a micro workstation. Used upright, your iPad can be used for interacting with DJ, piano and other music apps.
How does HoverBar work in the kitchen?
HoverBar is a super convenient kitchen accessory. It lets you position your iPad at eye-level, so you can follow your favorite recipe apps or stream a cooking video while you prepare dinner. More importantly, your iPad hovers above the counter, away from a wet, messy counter and out of your workspace.
HoverBar is easy to connect to your kitchen cabinets. All you have to do is choose a location and tighten a clamp. No drills or screws go into your cabinets.
Can I use HoverBar with my first generation iPad?
Yes, an iPad clip made just for the first generation iPad is now available.
Will HoverBar work with my iPad Smart Cover?
HoverBar works with Apple's Smart Cover, but does not work with shells or cases that add bulk or material to the back of the iPad.
Is HoverBar hard to install?
No. To attach HoverBar to a Mac, table or cabinet, simply slide the clamp into position and tighten with the included allen wrench. To insert iPad into the secure clip, place the bottom corners of iPad into the frame, gently clip the top of the iPad into the frame to secure. Then you can position iPad wherever you want it. No drilling, no screws, no furniture damage and no commitment.
Will HoverBar leave marks on my Mac or furniture?
No, the heavy-duty metal clamp has thick silicone cushioning to make sure your Mac and furniture are safe from scratches.
Is the HoverBar arm omnidirectional, or does it have limited movement?
HoverBar has a strong arm that flexes in all directions. A ball tip holds the iPad clip, allowing you to swivel and tilt it, giving you additional viewing angles and options.
