Zagg Black ZAGGkeys Folio

Saw a friend had this and ordered mine the same day. I love it. It holds the ipad nice and firm, I can position it anyway I like. Battery seems to last for ever.  Backlight keys is very nice, though being able to change the colour might be a little over the top. It does add some weight but that's ok for me. I've had quite a few keyboards for my mini and this one outshines the lot!

Very disappointed

I was looking forward to getting this keyboard, but I was surprised to learn that it was not compatible with the invisishield that I had on my ipad mini, it damaged the side of the invisishield and it would not stay on. I am disappointed at the fact that they would make a product that would not work with their own biggest seller.

Very easy to use keyboard


I was skeptical about how easy a small keyboard would be to use. This ZAGG keyboard is very easy to get used to and vastly improve iPad typing speed. Super compact too.


Great keyboard


This is a nice keyboard, it has nice back lit keys when needed and makes my ipad feel more like a working machine. I really like the way the keys respond, still getting used to the small size of keys but still better than typing on my ipad mini. Well worth the money


Wonderful features!!


This keyboard is a great addition to the iPad mini.


The keyboard I always wanted


Using it for 5 months now and no glitch yet. backlit bleeds a little but still love it. Magnetic groove in hinge getting better with use (felt somewhat tight at first). Being able to work with command shortcuts (select all, cut, copy, paste, etc.), is one of the best features for me. Keys responsiveness, feedback and size, I like very much. I even spilled some wet toothpaste into one of the keys and there was no consequence. Switching between English and Spanish is a breeze and accents, Ã+/-'s and other Spanish characters fall where they have to. The only thing I do miss are arrows keys.


Great keyboard


I bought this keyboard for my son to use with his iPad Mini at school. He really likes the how well it attaches as well as the compact form. The keys were a little bigger than some which works better for him. The reason I gave 4 stars is that after 3 months of use 1 of the keys feel off. The service by Zagg was fabulous! I went online, requested a replacement which arrived on our doorstep in less than a week. I mailed the damaged one back and we have a new warranty on the replacement.


Good keyboard for the iPad Mini.


Good keyboard for the iPad Mini. Only one difficulty with it. Any buttons or links at the bottom of the screen near the keyboard is NOT accessible. You have to turn the iPad to the portrait orientation to access it. Touch is good, but narrow if you have large hands. Works for me. iPad occasionally froze when I had the keyboard attached, but could have been associated with IOS. Reboot fixed it.


Keyboard on the go


I love the slim keyboard, the portability and the ease of typing. It's a invaluable tool and seamless part of my ipad that I use daily. The tight grip of the hinge causes some discoloration on my iPad mini but it doesn't seem to cause any permanent damage. I've replaced the keyboard once because it stopped accepting a charge.


Smart design/high quality; the perfect combination


First review ever. I work in the medical field and document 8 hrs a day on my iPad and often in low-light situations. I appreciate quality and ingenuity in design. I researched and tried tried out many others brands. A great balance between being small enough keys to include what is essential and large enough for my large hands/fingers to type effectively. Compact with no unnecessary bulk. Opens and locks on to bluetooth fast which is great when you do this function 50 times a day. All backed up by the same great support we all have come to expect from apple. The only issue I have is that on occasion the bluetooth connection will not connect unless I go into settings and initiate it to (re-discover) the keyboard. This occurs about 1/100 times.


Title is fine as is.


This was a replacement for the original keyboard I purchased with my Ipad. It was padded and was a protection for my Ipad. This new cover and keyboard was sent to me as a replacment as you no longer make the one I purchased which was defective. I only had it three months and was told it was virtually indestructable.


Replacement-sent very quickly


Replacing a previous purchase. Keys sticking. Very happy with the help I received and the timeliness in getting my replacement and the ease of replacing the item.
