I just received my ZAGGfolio and Solo Keyboard for my iPad2. Other than being totally underwhelmed at the quality of the folio's outer shell I have run into a baffling problem...

When I type a Z I get a Y and when I type a Y I get a Z... has anyone else run into this?

More weirdness... shift plus anzthing gives me weird characters. Such as this is shift plus apostrophy Ä

This is me trying to do the plus sign `

What in the world is up... I can not use a questionmark either this is what I get when trzing _

I have the feeling this kezboard is messed up and Iäm going to have to send it back... bummer.

PS all errors above are a result of me tzping regularlz on this kezboard.

Not good for a $70 kezboard...

I would delete this thread but somehow I'm sure this might help someone down the line...


Appears the problem was a keyboard setting on my iPad. The hardware keyboard was set to US-German. Setting it to regular US seems to have fixed the problem and I'm happily typing on my keyboard with no issues.

So if anyone finds this thread down the line go into settings and see what your hardware keyboard is set to.

Happy typing!

qwerty vs. qwertz keyboards

I like those kind of fixes!
I am pretty sure that this problem has to to with the settings of the keyboard: qwertz type which is used in Central Europe (including Germany) vs. qwerty layout which is the ususal layout. Among the differences is just that z and y has switched locations in these two different keyboard layouts.
