Its Keyboard Type Very Slow

I seem to type very slow with it, like still using either only one or two fingers. Nothing more, compared to a conventional keyboard.

Keyboard Type By Itself
If I leave my onscreen keyboard on, the keys type by themselves. I have to keep restarting my iPad. Is there a way to calibrate the iPad? If I do the soft reset, will it delete all my apps, music, etc?

How To Use Soft Keyboard To Type On My PC?
Doing a lot of PhotoShop work at the moment, i've need to utilize a larger display. I've therefore had to put my laptop to the side an connect a larger display to use primarily.

Now (noting i'm on PC), I have a mouse but not a standard USB keyboard. Is there a way I can utilize the iPad's soft keyboard to type on my PC? I remember using an iPhone app once to do this, but never seen it done on iPad

Finding Macro Keyboard Type App?
I've been searching all around, but I just cannot find an app that I am dying for.

I have an old X-Keys that is great, but not as customizable as I'd like. I thought for sure there would be an app on the iPad that could replace it.

An app where you can define buttons on the iPad (in pages, or sorted in whatever way), so that when you hit them, they run a command on the mac. This could be a keypress, a series of keypresses, a AppleScript, an Automator script, iTunes...whatever.

This is somewhat doable using TouchOSC and OSCulator, but as far as keyboard commands, OSCulator only supports a single keypress or key command, so I can't program one to type "Graphic" for instance, without going through some pain. This is an example from TouchOSC.

Has anyone heard of an app that does this? If I knew how to code apps, I'd make this in a heartbeat, and then retire in the mountains.

Keyboard - Misses Letters While I Try To Type
I've now had my iPad 2 for a week and overall I'm very pleased with it. Besides my gripe with Apple for not including wireless synching (something I've discussed in detail in other threads, so I won't tread there again) my only issue is with the keyboard. Now, I consider myself a fairly quick typist and I find the keyboard, while generally good, misses letters while I try to type. I assume this is a responsiveness issue. Is there a way to improve the keyboard so that I don't have to slow my typing?

Pop-up Keyboard Appears While Trying To Type Low Down On The Screen
Since the recent software upgrade this week, my pop-up keyboard gets in the way when I try to type low down on the screen. I've had every generation of iPad and this didn't happen before, because the screen would move up, keeping the typing from being hidden behind the keyboard. Now if I move it up manually it slides back down. It's happening in several different apps and in some cases (e.g. In Keynote) makes it all but impossible to type anything.What changed and how can I fix it? Please don't tell me to buy an external keyboard, I like doing all my typing on the screen and I'm hoping it's just some setting I've inadvertently changed.

iPad, Other OS

Across An Image Online - Type Of Wireless Keyboard
I came across an image online of an iPad docked, and a wireless keyboard. I've never seen this DOCK before, nor have I seen this type of Wireless Keyboard. It looks like it has a trackpad on the far right side. Just curious if anyone knows of these products, and if so, anymore information? Links?

Keyboard Dock - Wobbles Around And Doesn't Let Me Type At All ?
I just bought a brand-new iPad keyboard dock, and guess what... It doesn't work! I try to plug it in, and the iPad wobbles around and doesn't let me type at all! And in the Apple Case, and this is worst of all, I can't even get it to connect! In fact, I think this dock might have ruined my connector permanently, because now it takes at least two or three tries to make my iPad sync to my PC! Note that all I'm using is FIRST PARTY ACCESSORIES here! Don't you think a company like Apple should have made sure it's accessories actually WORKED?!?!

IPad 3 :: Keyboard Sometimes Doesn't Type A Letter?
when I'm typing something some characters don't show, it's not any particular letter or number but it does happen frequently. For example, if I type "word" it may show as "ord". At first I thought I was just not actually touching the particular character that didn't show o I started (note: the word just before I in this sentence is SUPPOSED to be so but only the o is showing- that's exactly what I'm talking about!!) has anyone else had this issue with the iPad 3?

Unable To Type Correct Keys When Keyboard Connect Via Bluetooth
just purchased a dock and wifi keyboard for my 64gb ipad today. the apple wifi keyboard didn't give any hassles when connecting via bluetooth but it doesn't type the correct keys. for instance, the q and the a are reversed, and i can't for the life of me get it to enter @, which means this thing is unusable. purchased the ipad, dock, and keyboard from best buy whom i despise and am worried they'll give me a runaround when i attempt to return the keyboard. can't wait for apple to build a store in south bend / mishawaka. Information:
Mac Mini Mac OS X (10.6.4) 2.5ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4gb 667mhz DDR2 SDRAM, 500gb 7200rpm hd w/ 16mb cache.

Incredibly Slow Keyboard Response
Whenever I try to type in a URL in a web browser not made by Apple, the onscreen keyboard lags by a second for each button i press. If I type in anything else, the keyboard runs fine.

I've tried restarting the iPad and clearing caches, so far nothing has fixed the problem.

Blue Tooth Keyboard Working Slow
I was going to purchase an iPad, partly for the fun factor and partly for a very portable solution to access my work desktop when I travel via a remote desktop program we use. It worked fine in fooling around with it in an Apple store, with one excpetion. We use the * key a lot in my work, so using the iPad keyboard would now require shuttling back and forth between 3 keyboard pages, the numbers page, the letters page, and the special characters page. I could not get used to this, it was simply too awkward and way too slow.

My question is, do you think purchasing the Apple Bluetooth keyboard would settle this issue, and is a reasonable compromise? I very much want the iPad for all the other obvious reasons that everybody loves theirs, but am wondering if purchasing the keyboard for travel takes away the portability attraction and if it would then be better to bite the bullet and spend a few hundred more for the Macbook Air 11.6? I would never use the keyboard at home as I use my desktop to work from home and not the iPad, so it would only be when I travel(not that much, perhaps 4 to 5 times a year)

Type On An Applications
I haven't used an iPad yet, and I'm rather curious How does the on-screen keyboard work? Is it easy to use?For some reason, when I think about it, I find the concept of the onscreen keyboard rather inconvenient:For example:1) You have to put the iPad down to comfortably type on it with both hands...2) If you put it down, most likely you will be putting the iPad down on a completely flat, horizontal surface (e.g. on a table or on your legs)3) Because you have to put it down on a flat surface, you have to bend your neck downward and stare down all the time to see what's on the screen (Ahhh!!! back problems

Can't Type In Greek
Why on earth would Apple not add Greek as an international keyboard for the iPad? They do for the iPhone. Being able to type Greek characters is crucial for many fields of study including theology, classics, biblical studies or learning modern Greek. My ancient, biblical and modern Greek lexicons are useless on the iPad. I guess I have to use my iPhone. Come on Apple!

Key On Repeats When Type It
In recent days when I type the 'e' key on the iPad it repeats and I see it twice. I have to backspace each time to get rid of the repeated 'e' which is frustrating and a time killer since I use my iPad a lot for work. Any ideas what is happening or how I can fix it? This doesn't happen with other keys.

Type Id And Have The Correct To Id ?
The iPad seems to think that I probably mean ID when I type those two letters, I always mean it to correct to I'd, half the time when I type the letters ive it corrects to I've, the other half of the time it changes it to vie. Does anyone know of a way to set up conditional corrections? Any other suggestions for specifying the default guess for the same "error"?

What Type Of Apps Are Best
When buying Apps for the iPad, do you buy iPad apps, or iPhone apps that you can use on the iPad as well?I ask this for many reasons. iPad apps are usually more expensive than iPhone apps, for example, Angry Birds for iPhone costs $0.99, whereas Angry Birds HD for iPad costs $4.99. Don't get me wrong, I do buy iPad apps, but usually when it's on sale, rarely for $4.99. And the apps I have are usually free also. One reason to why I usually get iPhone apps, is because it's cheaper, and I make sure that they are compatible with iPad also, so I can play it on both screens.But does the app look bad when using an iPhone/iPod app on the iPad?

Can't Type In Safari
I'm troubleshooting my wife's iPad over the telephone...iPad 1, using the original iOs (was going to upgrade today but did not).This morning it was "working fine".I downloaded a movie from iTunes.I changed the password on her "Mail" account.I backed up her two Pages files in my iTunes accounts.NOW - she can use her Mail, but Safari seems to be focacta. She says she can't type a new address in the address or the Google bar, and when she clicks on existing links on existing pages, they load blank pages.She's tried changing networks (we have two Wi-Fi routers in the house), to no avail.

Case To Easily Type
I'm typing this on my new iPad, absolutely loving it!! But, I'm desperately in need of a case! Not because I need to urgently protect the screen but because I find it quite awkward to type especially when lying on the sofa or on a table (I don't have the dock).
Now, i know apple do a case for it but i've heard mixed reviews and it doesn't look the sturdiest (most durable) of cases! However, what i like about the apple case is the fact that you can make it into a stand in different positions, very neat!! I would preferably like a leather case but whatever case I choose would have to have stand like capabilities that the official apple one does.
Does anyone know of any cases other than the official apple one??

I am having issues trying to type into fields in Safari. For example, I attend the University of Phoenix Online and I can't type into the text fields for posting comments. Other areas I experience problems is with blog posts, like on (local newspaper). I believe these fields are JavaScript fields, but I am not sure. If I try to type in these fields Safari freezes up and I have to force close... Any suggestions?

Type & Size - 3G Version
I plan to run my ipad's internet access off my Imac by using the airport setting rather than having a seperate internet service (I can't justify purchasing a second internet service if I don't need to) for the Ipad and I think i'll only really need the Ipad to use apps or read books or the odd movie when I'm filling in time in waiting rooms or commuting etc. I guess I'll always leave the bulk of the movies on the Imac and transfer single movies or a few at most across to the Ipad so I can take them with me. I huess I'll probably use the Ipad for viewing photos and as a slideshow picture frame when family come over.So based on this type of projected use, does anybody really think I'll need anything larger than a 16gb with Wi-Fi? I'm not sure I'll need the 3G version as most places I go will have Wi-Fi access available anyway.CyrusOz

Day Planner Type Case?
Just got back from Best Buy with my new iPad 3G. Now I need to find a case.

Does anybody know if there is an ipad case where on the inside cover there may be a couple of pouches to hold things like business cards or a check book? I would also like a little pen holder or two on the inside to hold a normal pen for the check book and maybe a stylus. I plan on using my iPad as an organizer as day planner but of course not everything can be digital yet like business cards or check books. I have not seen a case like this in any stores yet so hopefully somebody here knows of one.

How To Launch A .M3U File Type
I've just got a first apple product (Apple iPad2 16gb) for my 21st birthday. Had to choose between android tablet and apple, it was not hard to decide.The main issue is how to launch a .M3U file type? Its an online TV playlist. It works fine when I open it on Windows 7 (VLC player) but it does not want to open on my iPad. Other questions would be:

1. Can I install Windows 7 on it somehow?

2.I know that the architecture of the processor is not applicable, but I've seen that people were using OnLive desktop or something to run Windows 7.

3. The M3U file type issue.

4. How to run Flash on ipad?
