FrogPad iFrog

This might not seem too hard, but when you combine a completely new layout with several of these double key presses to get to the characters you want it gets annoying after a while. Although the manual claims that you can learn to “frog” in a couple of hours I have to admit that no amount of practice helped me improve my “frog” skills. If you’ve never used a QWERTY keyboard then perhaps this is a good idea, but I for one just can’t get used to the weird layout and multiple key presses.

Some of this might be down to the fact that I’m used to doing the majority of my one handed typing with my left hand while I hold the mouse in my right hand, a habit that I have developed while I’ve been playing games online. But even if I tried a left handed FrogPad I doubt that I’d want to take the time to re-learn how to type.

I have to say that I wasn’t too impressed by the build quality either and to add to the damage the iFrog version of the FrogPad will set you back £91.95! That’s quite a lot of money for a device that requires complete re-education of your typing skills.

Verdict

The FrogPad might be a great concept, but for anyone that is used to a standard keyboard it’s going to take too long to re-learn how to type. The price is also way too high compared to the competition.
