I use the Folding Bluetooth Keyboard for extensivie typing. For example, composing long emails, filling out forms, creating a Pages document or a Keynote presentation. I also use it for lenthy group or single iMessaging and Text messaging. The Folding Bluetooth Keyboard is easy to pair with both my iPad Mini and iPhone 5. Charging it with an Apple USB charger or an external battery works well. What I don't like are how some of the keys are laid out. My biggest gripe is the location of the "B" key. It is on the right side of where the keyboard folds - too far for my liking. Additionally, the "?" and "/" key is positioned awkwardly - on the bottom right of the keyboard. Lastly, some of the keys (:, ", -, ;) are too narrow and small. Certainly, all these little gripes can be rectified with a little more acclimation but so far, are a nusance. One thing I do appreciate that came in handy were the Command Keys. I can Cut, Copy, and Paste, for example, like my Mac keyboard - a nice touch. The Folding Bluetooth Keyboard is not perfect, but it's a good enough solution for typing plenty of words.

I was so excited to buy this item as I often travel only with my iPhone but with the need to write lengthy emails or do online office work. I happened upon this in an airport Brookstone and bought one for me and 2 for gifts. I am just home giving it a try and it isn't as perfect as I thought. It is small and easy to have with you as well as charges in a couple of hours. I actually writing this review on the keyboard as it wlll help me to decide if I will keep it and I have to say after a little typing it does get easier as your brain adapts to the quirks of the design.

I completely agree with reviewer "eddievibe" who highlights the keyboard issues. It is a QWERTY keyboard but my greatest complaint is the one that may cause me to return mine and the gift ones I bought.

The people who designed this I would bet they do not type using traditional fingering for typing or else the B letter would not be on the other side of the fold in the keyboard. It would make sense that all the letters one uses the left hand or the right hand would be on that side before the fold/hinge so that the keyboard doesn't inhibit typing. The isssue is that the B should be on the left side but in a design flaw it is on the right side so you are typing along and every time you type a B it requires stopping becasue in natural typing you hit the hinge and you have to pause to use the right hand index finger. Also, on the right side: the period key and comma should have had their key size adjusted so that the period is easier to access but that I can live with . I am adjusting to the board but the B placement may be a dealbreaker. What a shame because except for this design flaw within a short time of practice typing I have adjusted and able to type pretty fast. Definitely better than using your ipad or phone screen keyboard!

So, mostly I am loving this keyboard but still need to determine if I can adapt to the weird B placement. :-) I still think it beats dragging my computer on a flight so maybe I can adapt!

            No real instructions. If it has a delete key I cannot find it. The home key is beside the large "back space arrow" so you always hit it by mistake so it shuts off the iPad

                      Comments about Folding Bluetooth? Keyboard:

                      I bought this keyboard at a physical Brookstone store after returning a bluetooth speaker I received as a gift for Christmas. It is a convient keyboard for tablets and didn't want to utilize the virtual touch-screen keyboard found on most Apple or Android based tablets. The keyboard is smaller than those for a traditional desktop or laptop computer, but given the portability factor, it's neat. It does take some time getting used to the layout, but eventually, it'll become second nature. I've found that it takes a lot of time off from using the virtual qwerty keyboard, especially if you use your tablet or smartphone for emails or texts, or product reviews.
