I’ve been eyeing a particular keyboard for many months now. I wanted to try this keyboard more than a person should probably want to try any keyboard. It had a killer feature that made me want it which I’ll explain shortly. The keyboard I’m talking about is the Kanex Multi-Sync Bluetooth Keyboard for Mac and iOS devices.
So why the Kanex Multi-Sync? Well it’s all in the name: it can sync with up to 3 devices. So, if you’ve got a Mac, an iPad and an iPhone, like me, you can use one keyboard to type on them all. Seamlessly.
There are three buttons up at the top of the keyboard. Once paired, selecting a device to type on is as easy as pushing a button.
The keyboard is nice as keyboards go. The keys have a nice spring to them. The style is very Apple-like while still having a flair of it’s own. It’s also comfortable to use, which is very important. And in case you were worried—setup is a breeze.
You may not believe this, but I plan on using this keyboard primarily to type on my iPhone 6 Plus.
Yes, the new era of DailyTekk may very well be powered predominantly by my iPhone 6 Plus. It’s true. I’ve written a dozen or so articles on the Plus, using an external keyboard, and I gotta say… I’m really liking it. And so far, the Kanex keyboard is my favorite.
I’ve read other tech writer’s articles on how dorky it would be to use a keyboard, any keyboard, with an iPhone. I’m over it. I don’t care what anyone thinks. This is a magical setup.
While the Kanex Multi-Sync isn’t all that portable (it’s a full-size keyboard and has a number pad on the right), it IS meant to be used with an iPhone in an office setting. It even comes with an iPhone stand (which works great, by the way).
If I didn’t need to use Photoshop to edit particular images and didn’t have to input certain content into our custom-made WordPress backend (which isn’t available through the WP mobile app), I could get away with using my iPhone 6 Plus to entirely power DailyTekk’s content.
Writing using the Kanex Multi-Sync and iPhone 6 Plus setup is AWESOME. The iPhone is powerful on it’s own, but without a good keyboard, it makes writing a lot very difficult. But for writers who just want to write and don’t need to do any image-heavy formatting and who don’t freelance design on the side, I’m coming to believe iPhone writing is a very viable option.
But only with a great keyboard like the Kanex Multi-Sync.
If you live in the Apple ecosystem (orchard, I guess) and want the ability to seamlessly switch between writing on your Mac and your iOS devices, this keyboard is killer. Or, if you’re like me and you want to do some serious writing on yoru iPhone 6 Plus, I think this is by far the best keyboard for the job.
