    Hi guys! I wanted to post a quick review of the BrydgeAir Keyboard for iPad Air/Air 2 that the nice folks at Brydge sent out to me. At $169, it is on the pricey side, but it meshes almost seamlessly with your iPad Air or Air 2 to create a mini MacBook Pro. Protective, it is not, but it works wonderfully and you really do forget you aren't using your MacBook Pro when you are typing on it. Plus, it just looks fabulous!

    Thanks!

    Has anyone used this keyboard with a glass screen protector on an iPad Air? The Manufacturer emailed that it's not compatible. I have a Zagg glass protector I don't want to give up, but i like this keyboard. Has anyone tried to use it?

    Sorry, I can't help you out. I've never had a glass screen protector on my iPad Air 2...

    I appreciate your response. I could be investing $180 (including the leather pouch) on a keyboard that could do damage to my iPad Air or force me to remove my Zagg glass screen protector that nicely covers a scratch. I've looked everywhere to get the answer, very frustrating.

    My Bridgeair keyboard has two screws on the back near the feet closest to the hinges. I haven't seen these in any pictures of the Bridgeair. I bought from the Brydge site as part of their black Friday special. I'm concerned I've been sent a refurbished Brydgeair. Has anyone else received or seen one like this? I'm attaching pictures.

    I don't like this keyboard. I purchased it for my iPad Air 2. It looks nice but it doubles the weight and thickness of the iPad Air 2.

    It folds out 180 degrees or flat. It will not rotate 360 degrees. This is a picture from their web site. brydgeair_180-_1.jpg
