It's a stand for your tablet. Pretty straight forward. But what's awesome is how top-level it looks and feels. If Apple were selling this in stores, it'd probably retail for $40. $For 12.99, you're getting an adjustable stand to looks and feels top notch, and more importantly, holds up your tablet comfortably. I use it to make my tablet my bed-side alarm, media consumption device (movies, podcasts, books, etc). Also makes it easy to see and grab.
