    The spacebar has been driving me a little nuts lately

    Am I just hitting it at the wrong angle or something? It seems like my biggest hold back on this keyboard is typing words as one without a space...***

    Happens to me on the iPhone all the time, I actually haven't had any problems with the iPad, maybe all the practice on the tiny iPhone keyboard has helped...

    Same problem except I seem to always hit the "n" in between words instead of the spacebar, once I can find the camera connection kit I'll hook up a spare USB keyboard.

    I've noticed that this system has a very active dictionary and will make corrections on the fly. Half way thru the word it guesses what you want and offers a suggestion, such as making "halfway" into two words. I just reread the text and tap the highlighted correction.

    Automatically capitalizing the first word of the sentence takes some getting used to.

    There are a lot of things that take getting used to, including accidentally hit the number bar instead of the space bar.

    That's the exact thing that in was doing when I first got the iPad, but I seemed to have overcome it... Now I keep hitting "q" instead of hitting "a".

    I actually typed this post up to this sentence on the iPad in about 37 seconds with no issues, so I think I'm doing alright.

    The only thing that trips me up sometimes is the auto-correction. I wish you could add custom words to the iPad dictionary or set it to replace certain misspelled words with others. Anyone else agree?

    Yes, there are certain words I use, that are not in it's dictionary and it constantly wants to correct them to the word I don't want.
