Spike Case Adds a Physical Keyboard for Your iPhone

The iPhone’s on-screen keyboard is forgiving enough as it is, but sometimes, my fatter-than-normal fingers make me type out messages that are garbled, wrongly-spelled, and downright confusing.

I’ve never been interested in getting a separate physical keyboard for the iPhone, since I never found one that was right for what I needed in the market. Until I spied the Spike Case on Kickstarter, that is.

And when you’re done typing, just swivel it out back and use your iPhone like your normally would with your fingers. Spike protects your phone while offering you the flexibility and convenience of an actual, physical keypad. I mean, really, I think it’s the answer to most iPhone users’ needs, especially those who have trouble with the virtual keyboard sometimes.

You can find out more about the Spike Case by checking out its project page on Kickstarter. Making a pledge of at least $50(USD) will get you a Spike 2, which is the premium version of the case, while oddly enough a pledge of $49 will get you a Spike 1 case, plus a Spike 1 for the iPhone 5 when it ultimately arrives.
