    Is there any way to move the cursor using the "keyboard"? Sometimes when using my finger I put the cursor in the wrong place. My solution is to make the screen larger and try again but I was wondering if there was a way to move the cursor using keystrokes (without deleting).

    No real way to move the cursor with key strokes. However, if you hold your finger on the screen, a magnifying lens will pop up and you can slide the cursor any where you want it. Hope this helps.

    Or get a camera connection kit and get a wireless mechanical keyboard.
    The wireless usb dongle can connect to the camera connection kit and the whole unit will act as a wireless receiver dongle for the keyboard.
    Now you can type in style.:D
