Adventures in iPad: Zaggmate keyboard
It is very lightweight and the angle for typing, on a hard surface is great. But, when used in my lap in a crowded-like-steerage conference room, I fear it will be hard to control.
The iPad doesn't "clip" or "click" into the slot that holds the iPad on the keyboard. I have a rubbery case on the back which I don't like taking off but it was so tippy and unsettled that I found myself wondering if I took the rubbery case off whould that solve the problem? It didn't. It rests in the slot a bit better but is not secure.
At onc point in a genealogy meeting, I actually shifted in my chair and thunk went the iPad onto the floor! My husband picked it up for me, but I just couldn't worry about breaking it again. With people moving in front of you in a row, I don't think this keyboard is going to work.
However, I do love it when I am working on the couch or at the breakfast bar in my kitchen. I will get my $100 worth of it. But, at the conference, I will use my Padprop and type on the virtual keyboard. I might place it on the lip of the case I bought for my netbook.
