Not bad. If I decide to buy the iPad Air 2, which I probably will, this is the one accessory I will get. :apple:

Yeah, mine's for the Mini.

My hands are a bit larger than average. Yeah, I don't have a problem typing on it and do so pretty fast. There are some differences you have to get used to, like the tab and enters key being much smaller, and they had to move some of the right side keys around, but that's pretty much it.

Yeah, I like the hinge design too, I just wish it wasn't so stiff! It doesn't take a lot of forge push it back, but it's when you push it forward that it does. At least that's my only issue with it a few months in.

But yeah, again, you might want her to go try some out.

Thank you for the help!
