Story behind the development of Typo Keyboard Case
The Typo Keyboard™ was born out of a desire for efficiency. For several years, many of our friends and colleagues carried two phones: one for typing and correspondence and an iPhone for virtually everything else. One night, we were out to dinner and both had our phones on the table.

Two people, four phones! We looked at each other and thought there was an easy solution to the problem, a keyboard for the iPhone. After ordering every iPhone keyboard available, we realized that there was no solution that worked well.

That’s when we decided to take matters into our own hands and the Typo Keyboard™ was born. After nearly two years of development, engineering, testing and feedback, we have created The Typo Keyboard™, an indispensable business tool that busy people simply can’t live without.
