I do lots of writing in my iPad so I love the bluetooth keyboard.

Plus, it adds no weight to the iPad, unlike my bluetooth keyboard, which makes my back pack as heavy as if I was carrying a laptop.

If I want to press on keys slowly, deliberately, and repeatedly to type on my ipad, I can just use the ipad keyboard.

I love this keyboard. I compose long essays using the "Pages" app on my iPad 2 and this keyboard increases my speed and accuracy. For the first time, I'm able to touch-type on an iPad. Plus, it adds no weight to the iPad, unlike my bluetooth keyboard, which makes my back pack as heavy as if I was carrying a laptop.

I had read about this startup company raising unbelievable funds to produce this incredibly cool keyboard that attaches to the iPad, so that when its touch keyboard was on the screen, this would overlay it and you could now touch-type, avoiding all the errors a non-tactile screen keyboard inevitably produces.

I ordered it immediately as soon as it became available. I thought it would be perfect, and the $35 price, although hefty for a thin piece of plastic, seemed reasonable to avoid the mistakes and not have to lug around a bluetooth keyboard. In theory, it was great.

In reality, it was AWFUL! It did overlay the iPad's keyboard perfectly, but only when in landscape mode. Even that was okay. It did cause distortion and a moire effect when looking at the screen keys through the domed thin clear plastic keys on the overlay. Very distracting; but even that was okay. What was NOT okay, and what I didn't expect, was that it was much, much MUCH more difficult to type while pushing down on the domed plastic see-through "keys". Even if typing on the iPad's virtual keyboard does cause errors, everyone who has used it knows it is light-touch effortless. Suddenly, you have to push these plastic domed "keys" down very hard--no touch will do--only one, sometimes two good pushes of the "keys". And, it is not intuitive for touch-typists. I am a very fast touch-typist, and the awkward plastic partitions between the "keys" felt very peculiar and uncomfortable. It was nothing I felt I could, nor wanted to, get used to.

The idea of adding tactility to the iPad keyboard was a fascinating idea, and I can still see a possibility for it, if it is made of something else.

I received this items today with much anticipation, having seen it on the internet. Like my iPad, it is simple to use, yet elegant in design. No usb this, battery that, no wires, nothing. It is just an ingenious good idea that plugs a huge hole in an obvious Apple assumption-that people will just love to type on glass. People who have suction cups on their fingers will not need this; only people who hate typing on glass. I like the feel it gives me and I love the ease in which it can be removed. Hey, guess what? No marks on the iPad! What black art has engendered such a contraption? Thank you, oh wizard, from the bottom on my fingertips to the summit of my cerebral cortex!

It has been a joy to get a 'real' keyboard I can feel, but still experience the mobility of the iPad. I can touch type again knowing that the F and J keys are right under my index fingers!

It takes some time to get used to typing on this and I cannot confess to have entirely mastered it, but it certainly enables you to move far closer to touch typing than you would have thought with the iPad. It is light, not adding anything to the iPad's weight or size and so can be easily brought with you without thinking, its shortcomings are those of the iPad, in that the screen is barely big enough to take a keyboard. Overall very happy with this and have recommended it to a number of others.

I've been following the iKeyboard project since it's kickstarter days and am very happy with the final result. Personally, I enjoy typing when watching TV so I always have a problem making lists or typing random things when my eyes and focus aren't on the iPad's virtual keyboard. Now, with the iKeyboard I'm able to just type based on feel and muscle memory...and it makes a huge difference. It's a very simple device...thin, lightweight and no batteries are necessary. It's probably not the best thing if you have long papers to type...for that you'll still want a bluetooth keyboard but for short emails, lists and casual typing it's a savior.

I just bought the new iPad and iKeyboard and I love both of them. I actually typed two essays while on a train back to school this week. At first there was a loss in typing speed, but with practice my typing speed has greatly improved. Everyone asked me about the iKeyboard when they saw me typing with it. I like the clear keys even though once on a while the keys click. The keys fell nice and always work. I love how thin and compact the iKeyboard is and I like how it fits right into my smart cover.

I saw this first at MacWorld and was completely impressed. It is light as a feather and thinner than a credit card! All the other keyboards were bulky, adding considerable weight to my beautifully lightweight IPad 2 AND they had to be charged! More cords! Not this baby! It slipped easily into my iPad cover and I was ready to go. The finger cushions felt very natural to me and the price was so much better than any of the other keyboards which were 100 dollars or so. I definitely recommend it!
