Default [Q] Making a Magnetic Flip Cover

Okay so I bought a cheap leather 360 Swivel cover that comes with a flip cover. I was wondering if it can be made into a "smart" cover by putting magnets on side of it.

Yes Yes it is possible
I made a book cover for my Galaxy tab 2 7.0
You can make one for your device and add a magnet to it. It'll work for sure.

Press thanks if I helped you.

It looks like you're right but your choice of words show a bit a sarcasm.

I have some Neodymium Magnets that I can use or are they too string. If they are can someone recommend which magnets to use?
