Previously, we've enthused about the Logitech K380, mostly enthused about the Create, and generally enthused with some caveats about the K400r -- and what do you mean, you're getting these names mixed up? Logitech took some steps toward making things clearer with this, the Logitech K400 Plus keyboard. That doesn't sound like a giant leap forward for keyboard naming, but in all other ways the firm markets this as being for use with your "smart" HDTV -- sort of.
Logitech has added another gaming-focused keyboard to its peripherals range, this time a new full-size mechanical keyboard with color-changing LEDs and high-specification internals. The Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is claimed to offer customizable lighting, dedicated media controls, and mechanical switches that can give optimum performance and durability to players during gameplay.
Note Tapper 1.0 does one thing and it does it well: it lets you write notes on your Apple Watch by, yes, tapping them out instead of dictacting. We have had many, many times when we thought of something but saying "Hey, Siri" aloud and dictating it might've gone down a bit badly on air or, say, in the middle of a church sermon. Sometimes also in Aisle 9 of our local supermarket, though there we just tend to do it and put up with the stares.
If you've got an iPad Pro, you use it to excess. Far more than you did your iPad Air, and actually you thought you hammered that iPad Air quite a bit. There is something about the Pro that lends itself to doing more -- and the more you use it, the more likely you are to want an external keyboard. Plus, you might use your iPad Pro so much that it's effectively paid for itself, but you're still hurting from that large chunk of change you had to spend. You're not yet at the stage where you can casually throw your iPad Pro in a bag. You want to know it's safe, you want to be able to use it to its fullest, so you've looked at getting the Logitech Create keyboard case for iPad Pro. Every iPad Pro owner has looked at this, many have bought it; we've been living with it for a month.
Is Tim Cook happy? If you listen to analysts and financial experts then no, as Apple is doomed, but in One More Thing's simple, homespun way, we think he might be. There is the small matter of Apple making some excellent products that we all love: it's got to be nice being the ones to make them. Then there's also the tiny matter of the extraordinary amount of profit and the sheer number of iPhones that have been sold since you started reading this.
It's styled as LIT - Keyboard 1.0.1, but we're not sure if the letters stand for anything. Then again, the strap line for the app is "Have a Fire Conversation," and we're clearly just too old to have a clue what that means. We're criticizing ourselves there, though, not the app -- as the entire point of Lit is to be a pop-culture keyboard. You're looking at us now. It means that with a tap you can replace your iPhone's on-screen QWERTY keyboard with one that has buttons to insert quotes and audio clips from film, TV and music.
A software keyboard being brought over to iOS from Windows 10 Mobile by Microsoft is going to have a different appearance to the version on the originating device, according to a report. The iOS version of the Word Flow keyboard is said to have an altered one-handed mode that changes the key layout to that of a "fan," instead of bunching the keys to one side of the screen, making it more useful for typing using only a thumb.
Usually a sentence with the word "compromise" in it is bound to end badly, but in this case, not so much. The Logitech K400r keyboard has the features of a keyboard you're meant to travel with, and one that is best suited to staying on your desk. Whether you like it depends on how you feel about clacky keyboards instead of flat, low-slung chiclet ones, but it is a 79-key one that has the convenience of a travelling keyboard.
New ClamCase owner Incipio has announced the first new iPad Bluetooth keyboard cases made since the company took over its rival last year, including three models for the iPad Air 2 and a new model for the iPad Pro, along with one for the iPad mini 4. Most models include keyboard backlighting, wth one model featuring a rear OLED screen for notifications while the case is closed, and the one for the iPad Pro including a storage slot for the optional Apple Pencil drawing stylus.
If you're an extremely fast typist, chances are your keyboard can't keep up with you. It's a fact that most keyboards aren't engineered for especially fast typists and those of us who type particularly fast run into a battery of problems. These can include missing letters or duplicating letters due to lack of tactile feedback from keyboards that aren't used to receiving as many signals as fast typists put out. Fortunately, there's a solution in a squat, compact little keyboard called the Penclic MK1. We've been living with one for a while, check out our full review to see what we thought about it.
