iClever v Apple: Keyboard Throwdown


So here I go, my first boj post using the iPhone 7+/iA Writer app/iClever folding keyboard as I begin the shift to mobile.

I know: I'll compare the iClever to Apple's Magic Keyboard, my old mainstay.

iClever (above): $59.99; folds to 6.5" x 4.7" x 0.58"; weighs 10.1 oz.; backlight x choice of 3 colors (green, blue, or red) plus two brightness level options; nice key travel; full-size; charges with standard mini-USB connector; Bluetooth pairing fast/easy/obvious/WORKS.

Apple Magic Keyboard (below): $99; doesn't fold so you're stuck with 10.98" x 4.52" x 0.43"; weighs 8.2 oz.; no backlight; nice key travel; full-size; charges with Lightning connector; Bluetooth pairing on par with iClever.


The choice is yours — but only one of them will fit comfortably in your pocket or bag.
