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 â€œfrogâ€ in a couple of hours I have to admit that no amount of practice helped me improve my â€œfrogâ€ skills. If youâ€™ve never used a QWERTY keyboard then perhaps this is a good idea, but I for one just canâ€™t get used to the weird layout and multiple key presses.
Some of this might be down to the fact that Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ve been playing games online. But even if I tried a left handed FrogPad I doubt that Iâ€™d want to take the time to re-learn how to type.
I have to say that I wasnâ€™t too impressed by the build quality either and to add to the damage the iFrog version of the FrogPad will set you back Â£91.95! Thatâ€™s quite a lot of money for a device that requires complete re-education of your typing skills.
The FrogPad might be a great concept, but for anyone that is used to a standard keyboard itâ€™s going to take too long to re-learn how to type. The price is also way too high compared to the competition.
