Thank you for this awesome review SOFTPEDIA!

“Over the years, I’ve encountered people who are so proficient with touchscreen keyboards that typing on their phones barely slows them down. Unfortunately, I’m not one of them. I dread having to use a touchscreen for typing, and I always wish I could just plug in a keyboard and get it done the old-fashioned way.

Of course, you can just get a Bluetooth keyboard, but what if you want to use a wired device, or one that is currently paired with your Mac? Well, it’s a good thing you asked, because KeyPad lets you do just that.”
