JC, March 20, 2013 great fit and protection. keys work well - like traditional keyboard vs on screen
Anon, March 4, 2013 Solid product, protects the iPad and keyboard works well.
Ellen, October 17, 2012 This little keyboard is crafted for the iPad 1st Gen and is exactly
what I was looking for. It allows me to work comfortably at night as
I would on a laptop.
Just two things I would change, or maybe three:
1.) I would prefer a way to more securely "anchor" the iPad in the
kb cradle, as I have to take care not to tip it out [ie onto the
floor, etc.] when I am getting up.
2.) The battery seems to run low pretty quickly, and its lights are
not intuitive or conclusive. I have taken to using it plugged in.
Combined with battery issues on the iPad [an iOS-related bug, or
some such], this means routinely swapping my usb charger between the
two to complete my evening tasks. A better battery, and/or more
lights and/or a percentage indicator, perhaps via a monitor app,
might be a nice addition.
3.) If the two could be charged together, I would feel considerably
less grumpy about all this. They are using juice to power the
bluetooth after all, in addition to my apps and wifi.
In summary, I am a little miffed at the cost-per-annoyance factor,
but all in it does what is promised and is really quite amazing to
have. Since it is a design for the older iPad 1Gen I am not
expecting to find anything else this slick, or to see improvements
for this model. So overall I am quite pleased it exists.
CC, July 25, 2012 Simply, easy to set up and use.
