Hey. Whats the best Keyboard right now for Air 2 ? Thinking about click on style, not case
Whats a click on style?
My vote for the best iPad Air 2 keyboard is the belkin qode pro.
Smart Cover compatible
Can be used as a wireless keyboard to switch between multiple devices.
Portrait or landscape mode
Can be used with a case
Firmware upgrades through the app
Can snap on and off the iPad similar to the surface pro
Can get a deal on the iPad Air 1 version because it mostly works with the iPad Air 2
This style http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/product/ultrathin-keyboard-ipad?crid=1221 and nice
$36.95. Relatively thin, nice keyboard, supports both portrait and landscape, rechargeable.
The belkin qode offers the same functionality but if you really don't want a case I think the Logitech offers the best of that style.
For a cheaper reliable option i think Anker offers the same product.
I was also looking at this.
I think the belkin qode is a more expensive, slimmer version of this.
I will take a look at Anker keyboards
Also looking at the new Apple magic keyboard. tried it in the store feels great to write on But dont know if it will work with Air 2. also need an iPad stand, not cheap soultion :/
I have an Anker keyboard for my Air 2. It is a nice design. Good construction. The issue that I have with it is that it has rubber nubs on the corner so that when it covers the iPad the keys don't touch the screen. This causes a gap and if squeezed too hard, flexes the keyboard.
I looked at costumer reviews on anker website. people seem to have problems with their keyboards
I know you said you didn't want a full case, but I always recommend the Clamcase Pro for the air. I believe they make it for Air 2 (I had the 1st gen Air). It makes it into a capable pseudo laptop replacement and protected it completely. The downside is definitely bulk and added weight though. I originally had the QODE but hated how flimsy it was when not yet docked. If you just want portable keyboard and don't care about clicking on, I recommend Logitech keys to go.
The clamcase pro looks stunning ! But its click on im after hehe Are iPad keyboards only chargeable through PC ?
They all charge via USB 2.0
Fintie blade X1 ultrathin keyboard case......best one...protects device and it's very thin....keys feel natural
I recently got the Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro keyboard and I really like it. I like how it's readily detachable and switchable between portrait and landscape orientation. No problem with flimsiness, etc.
I really like my BrydgeAir keyboard. I like that it's all aluminum. It makes my iPad into a laptop. It has lighted keys. It opens to any angle. It's sturdy and holds the iPad securely. Most of all it just looks classy.
I've been using the Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard with mine - managed to get it for $30 at Best Buy, but Amazon has also been discounting these - I wanted something that was going to work across different generations of devices, especially since it won't be used every day, but nice to have when I need it and easier to carry than Apple's Wireless Keyboard:
Except for the lighted keyboard the design of this appears to be identical to the Belkin Qode Ultimate keyboard/case.
I have the QODE. Looking at their pictures, it doesn't look like this one detaches from the keyboard no supports portrait mode like the QODE.
You have the Belkin Qode Ultimate "pro". The Ultimate is like this with non-removeable case and no portrait mode.
ahh, now I see that in your original comment. You're correct.
And many others. Anker makes a similar/cheaper option
If Brydge made a compatible case to cover the ipad I'de probably switch to the BrydgeAir from the qode pro
Brydge also sells a clear Polycarbonate protective shell back that goes onto the iPad Air and protects like the Qode it lets you see the nice Aluminum iPad back. It stays on the iPad when It's removed from the keyboard. I also use a Zagg glass screen protector. It all works fine and protects well. I also bought Brydge's leather sleeve. All nice!
Is the Brydge designed to allow the ipad to be detached from the keyboard easily?
