    ...and bought an Ipad air through T mobile (yay 75% employee discount on data )

    So I need some suggestions. I want a keyboard as I'll be mainly using my Ipad to write novels. It needs to be light, portable and hopefully cheap..

    Pink if possible lol.
    Anyways yeah I'm excited.. can't wait till tue, wed, or Thursday lol

    You might try Swiftkey. It's a real time saver. But I don't know if it fits your needs. You can check it out here:

    Thanks for the suggestion. I plan on using my iPad to write a novel at work and need a physical keyboard.

    I have two. One work and one personal. The work one is a Targus case keyboard. I don't like it. My Logitech has certain keys in the right spot like my full sized keyboard. The Targus has the " ' / ; etc I'm funny places.

    Is the Logitech the one that's ultra thin? I was looking into that one and actually a my first choice. Does the case itself protect the ipad well? And weight wise does it add a lot?

    Thanks

    I like the ultra thin as a keyboard, but not as a case. It is too easy for the keyboard to get detached from the iPad. I guess if you used a sleeve, that might be an ok combo.

    I haven't used the Zagg case, but have heard lots of good things about them.

    If you need a good app for writing, I like Byword. It will sync to your Mac and iOS devices over iCloud.

    I was thinking the ultra. It's 100$ though. That plus a sleeve and scratch covers may be too much.

    I use pages. And don't have many complaints. Is byword free?
