    5-Row Keyboard for iPad is a paid Cydia application ($2.99) that does exactly that it says on the tin. It enhances the standard iPad Keyboard with a 5th row which mimics the standard fifth row on a normal keyboard. So no more hassle with numbers or symbols. They are all on the top row, exactly as you would expect. You are able to select whether you prefer numbers or symbols as the default top row, and the selection changes as you would expect when you press the shift key. Have a look at the two screenshots below for an example (these were taken at the spotlight screen which is why the enter key says "search"). Also, I have combined 5-Row Keyboard for iPad with Black Keyboard (a free Cydia Tweak) for added effect! Gotta love the bl4ck!

    Another great reason to Jailbreak, I hope you'll agree!

    Yeppers, that there is one of my favorite tweaks. I keep my symbols as the top row (since I am a consistent parentheses - and dash! - user). Handy to save myself that key stroke. :D

    Very nice overview.

    In addition to Winterboard activation, you also have to go to Settings>Keyboard>International Keyboards>English> ... then pick one of the 5Row selections.

    Can't you just open Cydia, switch to "search" tab, and type the number "5". There are only a limited number of apps that start with the number 5. 5-Row Keyboard for iPad is one of them...

    So this is yet another tweak that doesn't work on my iPad 2.

    I basically went down the list in the essential app thread and downloaded what seemed interesting to me. Black keyboard works fine, and all my other Winterboard apps work as well. Why doesn't this work?

    Sorry, the tweak I'm having trouble with is the 5-row keyboard. I enabled it in Winterboard, re-sprung, and am still looking at the standard keyboard. Is there another setting somewhere to enable the 5-row?

    Do you have splashtop installed?....I noticed this changed when I used the keybaoard while using the app.

    Settings>general>keyboard>international keyboard then tick the 5row of your choice.

    It works fine on iPad2. All the instructions to enable it are provided, just like most apps, if you look at the description of the product in Cydia.
