Ways to make holding the 12.9 iPad easier?
I recently purchased the [12.9in](http://12.9in/) iPad Pro and love its powerful versatility but was left pretty disappointed with the case and cover selection available. As I plan to do a lot of reading and note-taking on it I’ve been looking for a one-size-fits-all housing solution to protect it that also offers a hand-grip. For people who prefer to use their iPad one handed and with pencil on the other, what have you found useful?
On another note, would you use a Smart Cover at all on the [12.9?](http://126.96.36.199/?) With a pad of this size having the Smart Cover limits the number of ways you can manipulate the iPad comfortably. On previous tablets I’ve owned I would simply push the power button when done using it. What advantage, apart from the sleep/wake feature and scratch protection for the screen, would there be?
