Do You Use a Keyboard with Your iPad?

Keyboard cases for the iPad are becoming increasingly more popular with plenty of models to choose from. Of course, Apple designed the iPad to make typing on it fairly seamless (especially with the optional Smart Cover) however some people feel that typing on an iPad still feels a little cramped and they prefer an external keyboard instead.

This week, we’ve got a debate coming up between two writers on precisely this topic – should you buy an external keyboard? – but before they lock horns it’s over to you as the reader: do you use an external keyboard with your iPad? This could be Apple’s standard default offering or one from a third-party manufacturer (Logitech, for example). There’s even a handy Mac app, 1Keyboard, which allows you to hook your Mac up to your iPad via Bluetooth and use your Mac’s keyboard as an external Bluetooth keyboard for your iPad.

Whatever option you use, please feel free to vote in this week’s poll on the right! And of course, stay tuned for this week’s debate on the subject of keyboard cases – it’ll be a good one!

    You need a 3rd choice in your poll: “3. Sometimes.”

      Apologies – we’ll include that in future polls.

      Thanks!

      With you on that one. I use a keyboard for work, especially when there are a ton of notes to be taken down. Other than that, its just on its own.
