iClever makes some unique, cool electronics and this Bluetooth keyboard is better than most I have tried. The actual keys are placed at the same distance as your regular PC keyboard! The keyboard sits up at an angle about the same as your regular keyboard. It runs on (2) two AAA batteries (not included). This ‘not included’ feature with electronics has always bugged me. It wouldn’t kill the manufacturer to include the batteries.

Set up was really easy ‘after’ the first time. On the bottom is a tiny little on/off switch. Turn it on and a little blue light by Keypad F11 shows up briefly. Set your device (I used my iPad 2 and my iPhone 4S set to Bluetooth mode. Then you have to press a tiny little black ‘reset’ type button on the bottom. Within about 30 seconds the unit will be paired. It’s all a bit small, but the good news is, after your keyboard is paired to your device, you never have to set it all up again.

The keys set about 1/8 of an inch above the board and are not waterproof or water-resistant. So watch your coffee. The top of the keyboard is ESC through F1q, to F12 and Delete. The keyboard is about 60% the length of a regular keyboard, so the side keys had to be moved about. This can take some getting used to if you are a purist typist that takes pride in never looking at the keyboard. I always have to look at my keyboard. The bottom row is ‘fn’, ‘control’, ‘alt/option’ and ‘command’. There are also a ‘command’ and alt/option’ keys to the right of the center spaced ‘space’ bar. The ‘fn’ is used in conjunction with other keys (Q, W, or E) for Android and Windows systems. Apple systems use (13) ‘symbol’ keys while Android systems use (14) ‘symbol’ keys in slightly different ways for results. In other words, you have to learn how to use multi-media keys differently depending on your device.

Learning how to use a new Bluetooth keyboard is not new. So many are different and this one is slightly better designed and bigger than most. It certainly beats ‘thumb-typing’ on an iPhone or ‘picking’ on an iPad. There is a note that his keyboard will not work with Nokia Lumia 720 and may not function with other similar devices. But for the price, you can be sure it’s worth it for Apple, Android and Windows operating systems.

iClever offered me a review keyboard. For me, the gold standard has been Logitech keyboards, in particular their portable bluetooth keyboard and their ultraslim iPad case.

I'm writing this review with the iClever keyboard, connected to a Nexus 4. My initial thoughts -- keys slightly sticky. The keyboard itself looks great, with rubberized keys. Needed two AAA batteries (fortunately I had some). Connecting was very easy.

After typing out several pages of material, the keys weren't sticky any more, and everything seemed to work great. I like it a bit better than the Logitech, and this is much less expensive.

The keyboard has the ok of aluminum, but is actually plastic. High quality build. Slightly noisier than the Logitech when typing. I'll do a follow-up review after using it as my sole keyboard during an upcoming trip.

Highly recommended.

The iClever Bluetooth keyboard would be a great keyboard only if it worked. I’ve used it for about 3 days now. One major issue is that the keyboard will not say connected for a long time when it idles. So that means if you leave your computer and it goes to sleep the keyboard would have to turn back on and then connect then you can get your computer out of sleep. This happen in OS X. In Windows you start the computer up and you can’t log in to it because for some reason it won’t connect at the login screen. It only connects after you log in. So it sorta pointless to have this keyboard as a main keyboard. Another major issues is that some times the keys will get stuck and you have to un jam it in order to get the key working again. Also the keyboard feels really cheaply made. But the keys do feel very nice when typing. Lastly It is really loud when typing on it. For a slim keyboard it sounds like a keyboard form the 90’s. But the keyboard works in iOS some what decent but yet still has the random disconnects when just idling for about a few minutes. But one thing I do like about the keyboard is that the sliver color almost looks the same silver Apple uses. So if you are looking for a bluetooth keyboard I would highly recommend trying to find another one since this one has lots of issues with the bluetooth technology in it. Lastly I don’t understand why it say’s it doesn’t work with a Mac Mini. Bluetooth is Bluetooth.

I wish it also had a track pad, but I knew it didn't when I ordered it. For $15.99---you have got to be kidding me!

I put two AAA batteries in it, per instructions. You need to provide your own.

I turned it on, hit the connect button, checked that Bluetooth was on in my iPad (3rd Gen), a passcode popped up, i entered it---and started typing this review.

I've returned more expensive Bluetooth keyboards made by Apple and gave a couple to charity.

Did I mention that this thing is $15.99?

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for, i.e., an inexpensive keyboard to use with my iPad when I'm getting "long winded" and the virtual keyboard just doesn't cut it.

Did I mention $15.99?

Did I mention that unless you have the intellect of a clam, you can be typing on this without looking at the manual?

And...$15.99.

Yes, it is made of plastic. "Perhaps" they keys re a little noisy---I could care.

Did I mention $15.99?

My husband got a Surface RT for me for Christmas. Since I'm using it for writing, I needed a keyboard. I found this, read the reviews, and purchased it. It's wonderful! Incredibly similar to using my laptop. Once in a while, a key will stick, but it's nothing that interferes with my work. So far, the battery life is pretty great, too. Very happy with the price and very happy with the product. I do recommend this :)

I have owned my iPad for over two years and during this time I have never become fully proficient with the touchscreen keyboard. It works for an occasional email, but I dislike using for bigger tasks (like typing Amazon reviews). The iclever bluetooth keyboard is an ideal keyboard (for me) since it is almost the same size as the keyboard on our MacBook Pro.

Notes

- The bluetooth connects easily with my iPad - simply push the "connect" button on the back of the keyboard

- The keyboard is about the size of a standard laptop keyboard

- Does require 2 AAA batteries that are not included.

- The buttons feel firm, but are quiet when pressed.

- Nice aluminum frame

Final verdict - the iclever bluetooth keyboard is small enough for travel, but it is still the same size as a standard MacBook keyboard. Recommended

4 1/2 Stars

I have the Galaxy Note 8.0 and this makes an amazing tablet truly a viable replacement to my old laptop especially when remoting in to my desktop at home. It's like being in my office! A great chicklet keyboard with good key travel, responsive, and great shortcuts for Android and Windows when remoting in! :) I can't recommend this enough!

Works well and is very convenient...I use it for school and business, plus when my daughter won't give up the ipad I can use the keyboard to shut her down 😊

This is a durable keyboard (similar to an apple desktop keyboard.) It was very fast and easy to pair to my new Kindle Fire HDX.
Very worth the cheap price!

I love this wireless keyboard! It has a standard Qwerty layout and works exactly as I expected. I now tend to use it quite a lot. Incredible helping hand for touch screen devices. This wafer-thin keyboard is really a perfect match for my Samsung Note and Galaxy.
