Re:


Autumn, my recommendation is get a laptop. You can get a really little one, if you want small, but they work just like regular desktop computers. If you get an iPad you will have to learn all over how to use it and there is no physical keyboard to type on. My little laptop is on 11.6 inches and I love this thing. I know I would not be happy with an iPad.

Re: Help!! I messed up!


I have a case for my iPad that includes a physical keyboard, which I bought for about $100. If you know how to use hotkeys on an Apple computer (for example, cmd+c to copy), they are the same on the physical keyboard I have.

Re: Help!! I messed up!


I got a physical keyboard extra when I got my Kindle Fire. I didn't think I'd like using the screen for a keyboard. It just doesn't seem like it would be easy to get used to.

Re: Help!! I messed up!


I'm a touch typist. If I can't feel the keys, I have to look at the keyboard as I'm typing and look at each key I touch, which slows me down immensely when I have a lot to type.

Years before I took a typing class in high school, Dad drew up a map of our manual typewriter's key placements, and I taught myself touch typing. I'd have to hunt & peck on a touch screen, and that would slow me down quite a bit.

Re: Help!! I messed up!


I doubt we have to hunt as much as people who haven't learned how to type, but that's exactly it. Having to actually see each key in order to touch the right one can slow a touch typist down immensely.

Now, I'm curious. I should find one of those online typing tests and see how slow I type on my iPad's keyboard. Then, for giggles, maybe I'll try it on my iPhone, too. Not right now, though. It's 3:30am here, and I'm starting to think about sleep. emoticon

Yeah. It just throws me at first and I get a brain fart for a couple of seconds. emoticon Plus, like you said, you have to look at the keypad and make sure you touch the right letter.
