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.Read more ›
Would it beat the ZAGGmate that I had purchased for my iPad-1? Would it be a handy companion for my iPad-1?
Nonetheless, I went onboard as a 'Backer'. It was then I decided to quit comparing them with each other and wait for the finished product from Cliff. After all, both (ZAGGmate and the iKeyboard) were two different concepts.
A week ago, I decided to let go of my original iPad and acquire the iPad-2. Last Saturday, I received my iKeyboard via FedEx. With fingers crossed, I tried it out on my iPad-2. The first few sessions were a bit tricky, gettin' used to a new add-on et al. But, after a few hits and misses, I realized not only was I making lesser mistakes but typing faster than the iPad-2' native on-screen keyboard.
So, there you have it. Simplicity at its best. And that's the moral of my experience with the iKeyboard.

Product is not what i anticipated. plastic cover that just sits on your iPad and gets in the way of everything. :( Do not buy not worth the moneyPublished 11 months ago by Angie Sellers
I didn't find this significantly easier to use than the screen itself. Since I don't touch type on my ipad this did not provide much benefit to me. It did work as described.Published 13 months ago by Logic Mom
this is a silly cover for the key board on your ipad. Seriously not what I had hoped for, but I was trying not to spend the money on an external keyboard. Read morePublished 15 months ago by lucylauder
