    I agree, i feel that it's too small and also wish it could be moved to the bottom. I'm with you, I'm sure I can get used to it but wish I didn't have to... Still love the idea!

    Yes it's too small. I was hoping the Settings would allow some latitude in sizing it but alas that may be a later update. Hope so since it is unuseable in its present state.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way, particularly since I'm a guy who has average to slightly larger than average hands, so I can cover more real estate with my thumbs. I can actually do the same with the regular keyboard but not nearly as naturally and comfortably as with the split keyboard. The "Radial" app had it going and I wish that is a split keyboard format Apple would consider as a user-selectable option.

    You can slide it to the bottom but not all the way, as when it reaches the bottom, it merges and docks again. Apple needs to fix that. I like having it there.

    too small, does not work, but the undocking is excellent.

    YES!

    The split keyboard was one of the new features of iOS 5 I was most looking forward to but due to its size find I don't use it as much as I was expecting to.

    I also find it a lot easier to use in portrait mode than landscape, the opposite to what I was expecting.

    As a lone voice, no. It's perfectly proportioned for my little fat thumbs I've been using it since the first beta and absolutely love it!

    You can re-position the keyboard by holding down the 4 keys on bottom right. Just put finger center of the 4 and you can move the keyboard where you want. It just takes a little pratice. Also you can swipe the keyboard to split. Swipe opposit ways.
