Keyboard Tips for the iPad
Split the Keyboard
Split the Keyboard by placing your thumbs in the middle of the on screen keyboard and pulling your thumbs toward the edge of the iPad. You are making contact with the iPad the whole time.
You can move the keyboard up and down by holding your finger in the bottom right hand corner of the keyboard and dragging it up. This only works in split screen mode.
Use your thumbs to push the split keyboard back together.
Add an apostrophe by holding down the exclamation mark key.
The quotations symbol (“) is hiding under the question mark key. Hold your finger down on the question mark key until a menu option appears. Slide your finger up and choose it.
Add a Period
When you are ready to put a period at the end of the sentence tap the space bar two times. This will place a period and a space.
Add an Accent
If you are typing in a foreign language you can hold down on the a, e, i, o, u, c, n, z keys to display different accent mark options.
Many of they keys have hidden options. Try holding your finger down on the keys to see what options show up 🙂
