    Tap one the arrow keys at the left or right twice. They'll look like this afterwards:

    AND YOU'LL WRITE IN CAPITALS. To get it back to normal, tap one of the arrow keys once.

    Unfortunately, it is not like a regular keyboard in that if you need to type a number, the caps lock is turned off again.

    There are 3 states of the caps key: Lowercase, One uppercase and all caps.
    No Tap = this
    One Tap = This
    Two QUICK Taps = THIS

    Two quick space bar = an ending period like this.
    If you want we're, type weree = we're

    There are other typing tricks, but I can't think of them now. Maybe others can add some.
