PERFECT! For anyone who is wondering: This WILL hold a 1st generation iPad just as well as it does the iPad Air. The 1st generation iPad is just a bit heavier, but honestly there isn't too much difference at all and it will most definitely hold it just as securely as with the iPad Air. In fact, now I wish I had 2 Spider Monkeys for both my iPads!Like many other reviewers, I bought this because I have painful neck & back issues, it even hurts to hold the iPad in my hands. I spend much of my days in a reclined position, but I also move around a lot from couch to bed, tossing & turning, etc. So I wanted something easy to carry around with me and also easy to quickly readjust to different positions throughout the day.There are so many ways to adjust and "anchor" the tail. And, as flexible and easy as the tail is to adjust, it is also surprisingly strong! The claws are also very secure! I have no concerns of the the tablets slipping out at all, even if carrying it around face down by the tail. The main thing is to ensure the tablet is secured into the clamps properly -following the simple instructions that come with the Spider Monkey.My only regret is that the "tail" isn't longer because I'd love to sometimes lay flat on my back and have the tablet facing straight down at me. It certainly is strong enough to hold such a position, but just too short to achieve it without having the tablet right in front of your nose. But, I'm working on maybe getting something set up where I can suspend this from the ceiling.What a fantastic, easy & well designed item. This was very much worth the investment!

I would give it five stars, but the flexible part isn't that big, so I can't get it much lower on my exercise bike (recumbent). The iPad's camera is right in front of my face, which is okay, I guess, but I would like it a bit lower, but as you can see from the pictures, that's not possible and also have be as stable as it is. If I stretch it out, it droops. It likes to be coiled pretty tight, it seems. Unless I am doing something wrong.Perhaps someone could offer a suggestion in the comments, after looking at my photos. (Excuse the mess, but it's the exercise place.)

We are using the Octa Spider Monkey to support an Apple iPad Pro.If you have a cover on the Pro, you'll want to remove it before fitting this to it. It's a tight fit without the case, and impossible with it on. (We tried.)Used on a table, it allows us to easily flip the screen for vertical or horizontal use. A quick twist of the screen is effortless.Height changes are also easy, pull it up or down to place it where desired. Perfect!The iPad Pro is probably as large and as heavy as you'd want to place on the Monkey. Occasionally pressing on a power or volume button will push it a bit in the opposite direction, but placing an opposing hand on the other side will take care of that.As stands go, this one has to be one of the most versatile. I like the ability to push it into a desired position with so little effort. This has been a happy purchase.
