    Keyboard - thumb typing

    Is there a keyboard that splits the keyboard in half - so say in landscape mode, holding iPad2 with two hands and use both thumbs to type.

    Please explain your needs - you can 'double thumb' type w/ the virtual keyboard - I'm assuming that you want a 'physical' keyboard that is split in some fashion?

    Sorry, just not sure about your question?

    Yes, an app that splits the keyboard.
    With current keyboard, my thumbs don't reach the center (the T,Y,G H,B ) keys.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing at this time.

    However, iOS 5 is "right around the corner" and the default keyboard is supposed to be able to do this split.

    Just got to wait until the fall/Autumn...

    In that case, I'll cross my fingers - umm, thumbs.

    Thanks.

    The uppcoming split keyboard is shown part way through this video (3:40 min.) about the new features in iOS 5...

    New to forum. I have a new iPad and today, for some reason, the keyboard won't pop-up. Can't type anything in any app. Have turned on/off several times.

    Any thoughts?

    Many thanks

    My thoughts are that you need to not hi-jack this thread and open your own.
