    I kinda like this. It would be great to be able to have a few options, for whatever situation you find yourself in. Saw it and thought I would share. But if a App ever came forth, I doubt Apple would pass it. Your thoughts?

    Due to its large screen size and space, iPad is extremely comfortable to work with in most cases. However, there are times when you feel awkward holding it from one hand, and typing from another in the landscape mode. Your one hand here becomes nothing more than a dock, whereas the other one remains hanging in air – used only for on-screen typing. Not so cool right?.

    Now a guy named Scott Robbin has come up with a cooler concept. According to his idea:
    Here, the only thing that you might have to sacrifice is the key size, but it might be more comfortable and functional. Do you agree with Robbin on this one, or do you have something better in your mind? Thoughts? [via AppAdvice]

    I personally like the current keyboard, but have one BIG gripe about it. I wish the keyboard had up down and side to side navigation arrows. I'm one of those that cant get it right the first time and using my pinky to navigate sure sucks :mad:

    I like the idea. I notice that if I'm in landscape mode I have to lay down my iPad in order to type anything longer than a few words. Having the split keyboard would definitely make it much easier to hold the iPad and type.

    I like the concept and just would increase the size of the keys, then it would be perfect.

    I'd prefer it in portrait. But more than anything, I'd love to have the option to turn it on and or download it from the App Store as a system tweak. Doubt it. :|

    The first guy/gal that develops the app that does this well will make a lot of dough ...... I'd definitely buy it.

    i use my iPad in landscape almost exclusively... maybe its because that is the aspect ratio I am accustomed to on all other pc/tv devices, but thats just how it feels best to me.

    Because of this preference, typing becomes a one-handed hunt&peck experience...This split keyboard design looks awesome...I think the keys could be just a bit bigger, as i the average person can probably reach about 1/3 of the way across the screen with their thumbs in a normal/comfortable holding fashion... just my 2 cents.

    Same here...I turn it to portrait when I read an article or google reader...and thats about it...it is 90% landscape, and I think I have typed in portrait maybe twice.
