You may remember last Monday that I alluded to having two giveaways for the week. Yeah, well that was before I fell victim to a stomach “incident”. I’ll spare you the details. You’re welcome.
Anyhoo, I’m feeling better and have a great product to share with you today! If you’re an iPad owner (or know someone who is) you’ll want to take a gander.
I’ve had my iPad 2 for a little over a year now. And though I love it, I rarely get time on it. Its mostly used by the other four (all-male) members of the family. Its mainly used for homework, searching Craigslist, email and gaming. On the rare occasions I do get my hands on it, I usually use it to browse Pinterest and Facebook. Its also great to travel with.
I had my reservations purchasing it, to be honest. I viewed it more as a toy than a tool. But it has proven to be a valuable tool for our family, particularly for my kiddos. With three boys needing to access classroom blogs and write assignments/papers, there is often bottlenecking on our main computer.
So I began to keep my eye out for a good keyboard accessory to help with longer documents and assignments. But I also wanted a protective case. Was there such an animal?
Yes there was.
Meet the 2-Skinny by Hatch & Co.
The 2-Skinny is a slim and light iPad keyboard case, with a backlight, making typing in the dark possible. The keyboard itself is only 7mm at the thickest point. It connects to the iPad via Bluetooth. The keyboard can be set to provide sound feedback and a hidden magnet puts the iPad to sleep when the case is closed, thereby conserving power.
What I like about the 2-Skinny, though, is the fact that it doubles as a sturdy case… a pretty important feature with three teenagers in the house. The case closes up securely and provides plenty of protection for the iPad’s screen and outer shell.
My overall impression of the 2-Skinny is very positive. There is a bit of a learning curve getting comfortable with the keyboard, just like with any smart divice. The 2-Skinny is constructed well and made of quality materials.
Hatch & Co. has other fun products as well, like the Firefly portable keyboard and the Kangaroo iPhone case. You can only purchase Hatch & Co. products via Amazon, but you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
