    I was looking at this keyboard on Amazon. And the one specifically for iOS is double the price of the one for windows and android. I’m assuming because this is Bluetooth I can use it with any Bluetooth related device, and the fact that it is labeled as android or Windows is only the pattern that is on the keys. Can anyone confirm please? And does anyone have this keyboard?

    I have this keyboard. Unfortunately I don't have any Android devices to try it out on, but when I bought it, I remember them saying it only worked with Apple products.

    I very rarely use it as I tend to use a laptop at home, but I think it's a brilliant keyboard. It holds its charge very well even when unused for months at a time. It's really light, waterproof (or at least spill proof) and can be used at quite a distance from your iPhone or iPad. I like the last point the most as you can use it any angle you like (propped up on something) rather than being restricted like the smart keyboard. 'One man's meat etc' but what many people like about that with the smart connector, I really dislike, and much prefer the versatility that the Keys to Go provides. I recommend it to other people now. Originally I was very tempted by a Microsoft keyboard, solidly built and nicely designed, but the shop assistant suggested I go with the Logitech and that I wouldn't regret it. I was highly sceptical, but he was right!

    I have a Logitech keys to go, and I believe you are right, it’s the layout of the keys. It is Bluetooth and should work with your iPad, although some of the keys (like ALT) might be different than on the iOS version. I also have a Logtech K810 keyboard & it is windows only, while the K811 (or something similar) is the Mac version. The K810 works with my Macs just fine, but it has two keys in different positions than on a Mac keyboard.

    I like the keys to go. It takes a little bit of getting used to for typing, as the keys are pretty flat, but it’s nice and slim to carry around and I havne’t had any issues typing on it.

    I have the apple layout keys to go in red and that works with a windows PC.
    Currys in the UK sold the turquoise and red ones off a few years ago when they were discontinued.

    I had both the Android version and the Apple version and kept the Apple version. The shortcuts on the android one do not correspond with the Apple one. For example, the screenshot button or the home button. I’m sure that theres probably some way to figure out how it corresponds but I was too lazy to figure it out when I had a perfectly functioning one (albeit more expensive). Bottom line is if you use apple shorrcuts, get the apple version.

    The Android one will not work properly with the iPad. The function keys are useless. So only the main keys work. The iPad one is made specific for the iPad and all the function keys are shortcuts. I use one at my desk with the iPad on a dock. It's one of the best keyboards and if it gets dirty just run it under water and dry.

    Look on eBay. I got my iOS version for only $20 brand new. I made an offer and they took it!
