Best iPad Keyboard

by hudlander / May 12, 2013 10:17 AM PDT

I got an iPad hoping it could be as easy to browse and post as a PC.

I also bought Belkin Keyboard Folio Case with Keyboard

It is ok, but not great. It's not close to replicating the ease of writing emails and posting on message boards like a PC, are there any better out there or not worth buying another?

Does anybody have a product that helps make the iPad effective near a PC for web posting?

Apple Wireless Keyboard

I like the Apple Wireless Keyboard my husband got me for Christmas and the cover (think it's an oragami something). BUT before I got it I was using a regular PC USB keyboard on my iPad2. I bought the Camera connection kit and it has a usb adaptor. Worked real good. Just drained the battery fast on the iPad. When you plug it in, it gives a message it's not supported but you ignore that and it works fine.

According to a review I read:

Either in Mac World or its sister mag. P.C. World I think it was a Logitech keyboard and it had a switch so that you could pair it with 3 different devices. Say your iPad, iPhone, and mac; Then just move a switch on the board to go from device to device. Check the reviews section of each mag. on line to find the reviews.

Are any of these worth the upgrade or not?

Go to the stores like Apple and see and touch them yourself. Even though I have the Apple wireless keyboard I really like that switchable one posted. I have both an iPad2 and iPad mini so I want to be able to switch between them without having to un-sync and sync up each time to each device.
