At only 6.3mm, less than a quarter of an inch and the thinnest tablet keyboard available, the ZAGGkeys Cover is at least 14% smaller than the competition, making it simple to take on the go. Not only is it ultra-thin, it features a pivoting hinge that allows you to place your iPad at virtually any viewing angle, just like a laptop screen. And, when not used for typing, lock the Cover behind your iPad to enjoy a pure reading and playing mode. When you're ready to type, simply flip your iPad around and enjoy the comfort and accuracy you get with 30% more typing space than other keyboards.
The Cover zips along on a powerful battery that will keep it powered for up to three months of regular use between charges. In addition it offers backlit keys that make typing in low light areas easy on the eyes and responsive, island-style keys that provide a natural and speedy typing experience. With these features and more, ZAGGkeys Cover is the all in one solution for typing on the go.

Really good keyboard
I really like the convenience of having a physical keyboard for my iPad mini. It kinda makes it look and feel like a netbook. I love the backlit keyboard... it was the main reason why I bought this one apart from other brands. The keyboard is nice and thin and doesn't look out of place with the iPad. I love the minialist design, as opposed to a folio case, that adds a whole heap of bulk. The keys have a nice feel and the positons have been well thought out.

I really like the convenience of having a physical keyboard for my iPad mini. It kinda makes it look and feel like a netbook. I love the backlit keyboard... it was the main reason why I bought this one apart from other brands. The keyboard is nice and thin and doesn't look out of place with the iPad. I love the minialist design, as opposed to a folio case, that adds a whole heap of bulk. The keys have a nice feel and the positons have been well thought out. There are a few things I have noticed that Zagg might like to take note of for ZAGGKeys v2.0... 1. Please make the keyboard remember my backlight brightness and colour settings after I turn it off. 2. The magnetic slot that holds the iPad does a great job in both orientations, but only when the iPad is unprotected (i.e. without any screen protection). I recently installed a ZAGG invisibeSHIELD HD filim on both sides and now find the fit a bit tight and doesn't stay in the slot very well. A little extra space to allow for a screen protector would be nice. The left side of the keyboard (near the Home button on the keyboard) also seems to stick out a smidge more than the right and interferes with the screen protector film, lifting it off the iPad when I open the hinge with the iPad in the slot. This is a pretty big issue for me. I understand that the keyboard does give the iPad pretty good protection when they are closed together, but I would also like to have a screen protector just for a bit of extra protection. 3. One of the rubber trims on the hinge didn't last too long before it fell off. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, I just noticed it missing a few days after I started using it. The other trim seems to be holding on a lot better. In conclusion, I really do like this keyboard and recommend it highly. Out of all the alternatives out there, I think it shines above the rest... there's just a few niggles that need sorting out before its perfect.

Sorry, I had to return this, twice. Â I use a screen saver, a glass type one that is very thin and the clamp hinge would not hold, so this was a deal breaker for me. Â I even returned the first one thinking it was defective, the second one did the same thing.

I noticed others had the same problem even with Zagg's own screensaver products. If you use a "naked" iPad mini, I could recommend this, for those who use a screensaver, it won't work. Regarding the brand in general, yes I recommend Zagg to others. Â I have their full sized keyboard for the regular iPad and still use it.

Picked up this case a couple of months ago for my ipdad mini. This has been the best case for my ipdad to date. the backlit keyboard makes this even better!
It is great but one key I have to push really hard when I type.
I purchased this keyboard cover as a recommendation by the AT&T sales person who sold me my mini ipad. I wanted a keyboard that allowed me to type on a regular keyboard as well as project my ipad. This product did both!
This is a definete upgrade from the version with a iPad mini case attached. Now it would be nice to a thin clear case for both the iPad mini and keyboard.
I bought this as a replacement for the Zaggkeys 7 which I liked for the most part till the keys stopped working about three months after purchasing. I purchased Zagg again because although it failed everything was fine till failure point. I assumed I may have done something to cause failure. The Zaggkeys cover looks good but does not work well at all. Most of the time (75% I'd say) I end up just using touchscreen instead. Very frustrating considering I have now spent a couple hundred dollars and still do not have a working product is very disappointing.Â
I stalled buying it thinking I wouldn't use it. Now I don't know how I lived without it. Backlit keys is an added bonus. Great product.Â
I bought the Zaggkeys Cover (for iPad mini) with the backlit keyboard for my 13 year old son as a Christmas gift. He loves it and thinks the way it just snaps in to the keyboard is cool. It charged quickly and paired immediatly. The charge seems to be lasting a good long time. Based on our experience with this keyboard, I went ahead and purchased a Zaggkeys Profolio+ for my new iPad. This product has been impressive as well. Thanks Zagg for such great products.
At first, the product gives quite a positive impression on design, keyboard backlight (very useful) and ease for setting it up. However from the first use until now it is clear there are some design flaws I did not expect: - I can't use my own ipad (back) cover. This protector (which couples with Â Apple's Smart Cover) has to be removed every time I want to use the keyboard. - I can't reach the bottom of the ipad screen for touch. The keyboard holder (dock) does not allow for my fingers to touch that area properly. - the tab key is way too small, the Q key unnecessarily too big, and the return key difficult to identify. Would suggest making the Q key normal and using that space for a reverse Â "L" shape for the Return key? - it would be nice once hitting the home key for background apps, to scroll through the apps with the arrow keys. Specially now with ios7 - finally, the Â fine rubber line that holds (and protects) the ipad tight to the keyboard, is starting to come off. - still the design feels robust, and once you get use to the small keys, still an small advantage over the using the onscreen keyboard.
First, I love the keyboard, for the most part. Â It looks great with my mini--I receive lots of compliments and questions about it. Â I like the way it feels when typing, although it is tiny and takes getting used to (but it is a MINI, so what else would be expected?) Â I really wanted this keyboard because of the backlit keyboard. Â I don't expect to keep it on all of the time and this is where the problem comes in. Â Just like others have mentioned, it totally destroys the Zagg screen shield that I have on there. Â I finally resorted to lifting the shield and trimming it, but now it looks terrible when the keyboard is not being used. Â I'm torn, keep this one or get the folio? Â I so love the feel of this one I'll probably keep it and just end up asking Zagg to replace my screen protection every month or so. Â I'm sure they'll love that. Â :-( Â All in all a good product, just perhaps not thought all the way through.
This is the only keyboard that is worthy to match up to the beautiful iPad mini. Â I have switched to an iPad mini for all my daily writing. Â Of course, I needed Â keyboard. Â I tried the Logitech Folio Cover. While very protective, you totally lose the beauty and design of this machine. The Zagg Cover came out, and in the reviews, did very well. Â It can hold the screen at nearly any angle. Â I bought it; it fits beautifully, it looks great, and it types just fine! Â With a couple of exceptions.Â 1) the keys are a great size--except for the number row. Â to make the keys Â large, one key is small--the #1 key. It makes the normal touch-typing pattern a little off.Â 2) perhaps more importantly, this is not an Apple keyboard. Why the heck not? Â The Logitech keyboard folllows the Apple format---the bottom left row of keys in particular. Â This is a PC keyboard. Â When you're used to the Apple keyboard patterns on your regular laptop, you want the same on your mini. Â Because it wont't do everything it should do.Â Get it anyway--it's the one to match your iPad--Quality is Beauty, as Steve Jobs said.Â
