  •  I have one, really like it! (7+ / 0-)

    I wish Enter would send texts, but otherwise, it is great typing on that keyboard. For composing it really works well, in my opinion. Hope yours is as good, Robyn!

    •  My mom-in-law got one (8+ / 0-)

      when she got the iPad -- for short things like Google search the on-screen keyboard is fine, but for longer things like emails an actual keyboard is pretty much a necessity with her dexterity issues and the fact she only really has one useable hand (between arthritis and her frozen shoulder, her right arm/hand are pretty much decorative appendages).

      Speaking of mom-in-law, my spouse is FINALLY home from her place...so much for a couple's Christmas. Maybe in another 5 years or so, if we're still around...

      •  I have typed longer texts using the onscreen (6+ / 0-)

        keyboard, but I am not proficient with it, and I do not prefer it. The bluetooth keyboard, however, is as nice as any keyboard I've ever used.

        May your Christmas next year be as you wish it, Cali Scribe!

          Just feeling a bit Grinchy this year -- nothing's gone the way I want it, and it makes me cranky. There are a few other issues as well; I had my Airing of Grievances last night, so hopefully come the New Year we can make a new start in our marriage. And if not...well, we'll just have to see where 2013 leaves us.

        •  When I complained about the on-screen (5+ / 0-)

          iPad keyboard to my eldest nephew (the Apple employee), he demonstrated the dictation option, and said that he often uses this function when writing short messages.  I don't think I could ever get used to that.
