ZAGGkeys PROfolio+

By McClatchy News Services


» What it is: A durable iPad case with a built-in stand and a Bluetooth 3.0 wireless, multicolor back-lit keyboard. The keyboard is designed for a natural typing experience on a smaller landscape with seven back-lit colors, including red, white and blue. There is an Apple command key and dedicated iPad function keys so users can jump to the home screen, launch a slide show or play music or video with one button. The case fits an iPad 2, 3 or 4, and magnets keep it closed. Its integrated stand positions the iPad at the best viewing angle for typing or reading and watching videos.

» The good: This keyboard has a responsive, easy-click touch, and the keys are all in the right place for a touch typist. The shift key is almost full size, and the arrow keys are properly located below it rather than beside it, so a touch typist doesn't have to worry about accidentally moving up a line after capitalizing a letter. The colored back-lighting makes the keyboard easy to see in low light. It never needed a recharge on a three-week trip.

» The bad: I'd like a kickstand on the back that would allow me to turn the keyboard face-down as my base for watching videos or reading when I only need to see the iPad and not the keyboard.

» Cost: $129.99

» Available from: zagg.com, bestbuy.com and amazon.com
