thumb typing on our iPad...

Just a quick "did you know?" post today.

I have heard many different complaints about typing on the iPad. One of the primary ones is from the folks who are really good at thumb typing on their phones. They complain that they can't use the iPad in landscape mode as it is impossible to thumb type this way.

Well here is the solution... just SPLIT the keyboard. Who knew! I know I did not until I heard mentioned on This Week in Tech.

So how do I do this you ask. Simply press and hold the keyboard icon in the bottom right until you get the split option.

Once the keyboard is split, there is a little "gripper" icon on the bottom right that allows you to move the keyboard up and down the side to locate it in a comfortable place for typing. Just drag all they way back to the bottom to "re-join and dock" the keyboard.
