Stuff that works :: iPhone 6 Plus with Logitech Keys-to-go keyboard

by Volker Weber

Two weeks from now I will be flying to New York City for two nights. And I plan to travel with just the iPhone and the Logitech Keys-to-go keyboard*. This has proven to be a really great combination to get work done. The iPhone camera is excellent, it has all the software I need. And the Logitech keyboard provides a great way to augment the only weakness: I need to be able to type more than a few sentences. I have a number of these BT keyboards but the Logitech device is just the lightest, simplest, yet still workable solution. It needs a recharge maybe twice a year. Brilliant.

*) OK, I might bring a BlackBerry as backup. I always do. ;-)

Update: Gerhard asked if I use a stand? Nope, I try to work with simple items I can find anywhere. Here are a few ideas how to prop up an iPhone. CD jewel cases used to be great stands, but nobody has them anymore.

And of course, you always know where your towel is. Great stand for an iPhone.

do you turn the keyboard off at some point?

Absolutely. When the keyboard is connected, there is no onscreen keyboard.

I am really liking this MSFT bluetooth travel keyboard. It talks to Windows, iThings & Android, has real keys, feels good. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GWGLUZ0

Yes, that does look nice. But it's a lot more hardware than the Logitech. Which does have physical keys that move, unlike the original Surface keyboards.

Is there a stand you use for your iPhone 6 Plus?

Gerhard Poul, 2015-07-08

Let me add some suggestions to the post.

The Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard props your phone or tablet nicely. 😀

I found a perfect stand. Cost me less than 3 Euro.

Cool, thanks! :)

No idea yet how this

will work in reality.
But it seems to be a smart approach for a mobile keyboard while being smaller than the Logitech device - including the stand.

Das Keboard ist wirklich gut. Mein Wireless Keyboard mit Origami Case war mir irgendwie immer zu schwer. Diese Keyboard nehme ich immer mit. Vielen Dank für den Tipp!
