1. This keyboard case gets 4.4/5 rating on Amazon, based on over 1,2 thousand reviews. 2. You can type on a keyboard for up to 100 hours.
From Phixnozar comes one of the first keyboard cases equipped with iPad-compatible touchpad. The case earned Amazon Choice badge for favorable reviews and reasonable price. It has also collected over 800 ratings, with 73% of them being 5-star.
The keyboard is not detachable but integrated into the base. Thanks to that, the case is much thinner than other ones in this category.
A built-in kickstand lets you position the iPad at the angle that’s optimal for desktop work. It will definitely be unstable when typing work on a sofa or bed.
The battery life has impressed many Amazon users. After 2 hours of recharging, you can type on a keyboard for up to 100 hours, plus you have 130 more hours to keep the keyboard in a standby mode.
Just like in other iPadOS touchpad keyboards, you can use a full row of tailored function keys. An interesting feature to notice is ability to enable or disable trackpad support. Simply press “Fn+Space” key combination.
The case is available in two color options: Black and Pink.
I find that it works quite well. The keys are very responsive and have decent travel, the trackpad takes a minute to get used to but only takes a couple of minutes to adjust. Works just like my Logitech Trackball Mouse.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.
