Hi Guys,

I dont know if you guys also feel this, but I wonder if typing on the iPad keyboard is fullproof and effective, I mean though the keyboard is spaciously spaced out and stuff but I often make spelling mistakes with it, and just to clarify I dont make such mistakes, so many mistakes while typing on a Physical Keyboard. So how do you guys cope up with it. The most irritating part for me is a lot of time even after I have felt I have entered/pressed a key/alphabet it fails to register it like for e.g if I have typed "you" it would only type "yo" thus failing to register the last alphabet key "u" and this happens a lot of times with me... I dont know why does it happen and how do I handle it. But I also believe since it is a virtual keyboard I could only apply a gentle pressure and not bang it hard for the key to register as that would break, damage the screen.


Guys do you guys have any piece of advice/ help for me. I am seriously irritated with this phenomenon. Any Help !

Thanks Guys.

I like using the Apple Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. For me, it's easier to do. During times when I don't have the Bluetooth keyboard handy, I peck one-handed using a stylus.

How can you use a stylus on the iPad Keyboard ? Didn't quite understand...

Instead of typing/pecking with my thumbs, I use a stylus (a pen-like object used to type on touch displays). Keep in mind that I don't use it when I have a lot to type. That is what the Bluetooth keyboard is for. I'm not good at typing on the iPad keyboard with it lying flat on its back as if I'm using a computer keyboard and the split keyboard doesn't feel right for me. I'm very good at pecking with one finger or the stylus, though...:D

You won't break the screen unless you have hammer thumbs, but yes, the ipad is not ergonomic, nor does it have haptic feedback (such as a button pressing down/audible click/vibration) so you have to adjust to it....or, throw out money for a keyboard, or keep using your laptop.

There are quite a few capacitive stylus available for use on iPads and other touch screen devices. Check out the Accessories forums and search for stylus.

If you're planning on a lot of typing, a Bluetooth keyboard may be better suited. Some of what you said can apply to all tablets regardless of keyboard layout because you can't touch type like on a hardware keyboard, and it's harder to build a typing rhythm.

ipad integrated touch keyboard is nothing but a larger version of normal touch mobile phone keyboard. If you really want to type comfortably you have to use a physical keyboard. Blutooth keyboard is one solution. Or you can buy a iPad casing which include a keyboard. Conclusion is you can't expect the performance or the comfort of a generic keyboard from your touch keyboard.
