I have recently gone back to using the software keyboard and I am really enjoying the experience. I have always been able top type on it in the traditional way, but I have always thought that it was better to use a bluetooth keyboard. I have to admit, I'm almost as fast and just as accurate on the software keyboard. There are a few things I like better about using the software keyboard over using the bluetooth one. I had noticed that there are times when you cannot input text in some input boxes on the web. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. When you use the software keyboard, you have the luxury of having autocorrect. Even though the bluetooth keyboards today don't burn a lot of your iPad's battery, having bluetooth does burn up. Some. Not having to have that enabled saves some juice. And you don't have to worry about charging the bluetooth keyboard. Many of them last up to three months on one charge, but you will eventually have to charge it. And the last advantage of using the software keyboard is versatility. I don't have to worry about disconnecting or taking the iPad out of the keyboard case when I want to use my iPad for a multimedia device like gaming, watching videos, reading, or anything else.
