Best Productivity Accessories for Your New iPad

Using the iPad’s touch keyboard is bittersweet, it’s convenient but compact. And many people don’t like smudging the glass screen with even more fingerprints. Still as a productivity device, the iPad rules. It’s portable and versatile.


A wireless keyboard is just one of the great accessories the iPad supports.

The iPad is a revolutionary device, most notably it’s helped change how education, business, and medicine perform daily tasks. More and more it’s used for productivity – and not just for sending email.

Wireless Keyboard
If you want to use the iPad to write, a wireless keyboard is mandatory. Apple’s woreless keyboard is bluetooth enabled and features the same sleek design as the rest of the Apple line. Hint: Buy the rechargable battery pack, it will save you when your keyboard runs out of juice.

HD AV Adapter
Got a presentation you need to show to a client? Ready to show those photos of the holiday ski trip to Grandma? An Apple AV adapter can be just the ticket. The adapter plugs right into the 30-pin port and outputs to HDMI. Now you can mirror anything on your iPad on the big screen – apps, photos, videos, iBooks and more.


You can watch movies, play games and even show off presentations using the Apple AV cable.

Touchfire
TouchFire is an ultra-thin (we’re talking credit-card thin) and ultra-light keyboard overlay that provides some much needed tactile love to your fingertips – and it does so in such a sleek and elegant manner you’d think Apple made it themselves. It’s transparent (so yo can still see the onscreen keyboard) and fits snuggly to the iPad with magnets. It’s also super compact (and can be slipped into its own carrying case) so you don’t have to lug a larger keyboard.

Compatible with both the iPad and the iPad 2. Unfortunately – it’s not available just yet, TouchFire was a Product Design project on Kickstarter.com, hopefully it will be coming to a store near you soon.
