Today is my birthday and I got a Zaggmate iPad keyboard/case combo. It was definitely the missing element in using my iPad as a writing machine. It’s a full keyboard, but smaller. I have very large hands and was worried that I wouldn’t be able to type quickly on the little keys. But I quickly got used to it and in the first day I’m typing just under 70 WPM. And it’s uber slick closed up. Love it.
