When I got my first Android phone I had to purchase a Swype style keyboard. I loved that thing, and even moved it to my second phone. Most phones and tablets come with a Swype style keyboard now so it’s not a big thing anymore.
As much as I love it, it gets tiresome in the middle of long conversations or when I’m just feeling lazy. All of my devices have Bluetooth and I have a Bluetooth keyboard for the Kindle but it’s tiny and doesn’t lend itself to typing a lot.
I finally decided to get a full size Bluetooth keyboard and they can get expensive. I found this one and I LOVE it! This is the myKeyO Full Size Bluetooth 6-In-1 Keyboard, Stand and Organizer. I found it on eBay but it was $10 cheaper on Amazon with free shipping. The seller even sent me pairing instructions in English prior to the arrival of the item. A+
It paired easily to my Kindle, my cell phone and even my laptop (the one I recently spilled soda in, OMG). I think black or pink might have been prettier but the white works fine for my purposes.
PS. My laptop doesn’t have Bluetooth but I got this adapter several months ago. It works fantastically and is super cheap.
The other night I had a sudden inspiration for a blog post for a freelance client. My Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was paired with the keyboard (I had just gotten the keyboard and was fooling around with it) so I opened Google Keep and quickly typed nearly an entire blog post on my phone!
I plan to keep it in the kitchen area, which is where I spend most of the day. It’s a great stand to look at recipes and I can send messages and type things up when inspiration strikes. I was worried I wouldn’t use it much but it has proved to be invaluable I highly recommend it.
- Apparently the number keys on the side don’t work with iPads, so take that into consideration.
- This is not rechargeable and requires to AAA batteries.
