Always wanted to finish your next bestselling novel on your iPad? Of course! Now you have the Zagg iPad keyboard designed so you can do just that. Next thing you know, you’re on the beach, sipping a cool Pina Colada, bathing in the lukewarm sun and typing away at your next big hit! No matter what exactly it is you’re writing, you’ll be thrilled when you get your Zagg iPad Keyboard.
There are a lot of portable keyboards for iPads out there, many of which are decent alternatives to the Zagg, but there’s nothing quite like the Zagg iPad Keyboard or the Zagg iPad Mini Keyboard. We’re here to show you exactly why. The following review of the iPad Zagg keyboard will say all there is to say about all models of iPad keyboards released by the respective company (yes, there’s more than one).
What Is the Zagg iPad Keyboard?
It’s complicated to say what the Zagg iPad keyboard is and why it’s so awesome. Basically, imagine you have your work desk with you wherever you go. Both metaphorically and literally, since the Zagg iPad keyboard only comes in sizes that trump the sleek and neat design of the iPad. But for all the good reasons: it gives you something to defend your favorite tablet and which you can use to write.
But the Zagg iPad Keyboard doesn’t come just in one version. In actual fact, there are many Zagg Keyboards for iPad, Android, and even for Windows tablets.
PROfolio Zagg iPad Keyboard
The Profolio is the flagship Zagg iPad keyboard, compatible with the iPads 2, 3, and 4. Its features are simple, well designed, and adequately implemented. Here’s what it offers:
- It’s a case and a keyboard. Like most Zagg iPad keyboards, this one too is both a case and a keyboard all at once. So if you drop it, you won’t have any problems.
- It’s 0.82 inches thin. It’s so slim, it could take up professional modeling for a living. We’re just happy it’s content with being a Zagg iPad keyboard.
- It has backlit island keys. Perfect for typing away in the dead of night at that danged essay due tomorrow. The keys are so nicely spaced that writing at it will seem like a dream.
- Its magnetic closing system. So that when you close it, it stays closed and doesn’t allow messy stuff to get between the keyboard and the precious iPad retina display.
- It also has shortcut keys. So Zagg thought: hey, we have a lot of awesome features, how can we make it more awesome? By adding shortcut keys, of course.
PROfolio+ Zagg iPad Keyboard
The original PROfolio was so successful (don’t worry, it’s still being made) that it spawned a follow-up. The newest one, while being more expensive, also has some nice improvements.
- It’s even thinner. The original PROfolio went to the gym and toned down a whole 0.01 inches, bringing it to 0.81 now.
- It has 7 colors. The backlit keys can now light up in 7 different shades of awesome, and the light is far brighter than for the basic PROfolio.
Folio Zagg iPad Mini Keyboard
It’s not enough that Zagg have countless models for iPad Keyboards, they also have Zagg iPad Mini keyboards. This one, for instance, which has these features:
- It’s 6.9mm thin. Given that it’s for an iPad mini, it’s only logical that it’s so thin, otherwise nobody would buy it (probably).
- It’s just a keyboard. No need for extra security, it protects the iPad Mini just fine.
- It has flexible hinges. So despite being just a keyboard, it’s still foldable just like a laptop. Very convenient.
Color Folio Air 2 Zagg iPad Keyboard
Just as we said: they have keyboard models for just about every type of iPad there is. If you want to search for your iPad Model, look it up here. The Color Folio for the iPad Air 2 is just as awesome as the previous models we’ve described, plus it has some extra cool features, like:
- It’s really colorful. It comes in 7 different colors: black, blue, white, red, purple, and green. A few more colors and we’d have a rainbow (just remove the black).
- It’s built in leather. The cover has an extra special type of leather texture that prevents all types of scratches. Pretty cool.
