I'm currently using a brand new iPad 2 and iPhone 4S with the latest software. For some reason, Safari keeps lagging whenever I type in the address bar. Not sure what to do? Tried most things apart from restoring.
Often, whenevever I begin typing a URL in the Safari address bar, the application freezes after I type the first letter, for what seems like 10-20 seconds. It's very annoying and it also happens on my iPhone and iPod.
I'm guessing it has something to do with the URL history loading.
Way To Solve Lagging - Crashing
Hfirst of all I own a 64 GB wifi only iPad. It's jail broken and I filled it with apps and some movies and now it's at 59 GB. I have only 5 books in my iBooks library and I use the Youtube app often to download some videos. However lately when downloading a video and launching it the iPad crash and it takes about 4 minutes for it to recover back. and the video's I downloaded get removed for some reason (I think it's like recovery mode). And it's been lagging alot and Apps are crashing very often. And some time it reboot for no reason. I think it's a really bad situation however I don't want to format it. Is is the cydia apps that are causing this or the large amount of storage I have is causing this?
IPad 2 Lagging After IOS 5.1 Update
For two days I received the IOS 5.1-Update for my IPad 2 16 GB WiFi and installed it after downloading it. So far, the update process worked well and after 5 min. The IPad was back again, ready to work. Since that day I realize problems with that IPad while working with it. Sometimes it freezes for maybe one or two seconds. Nothing happens, no reaction on tapping the screen or pressing the home-button. Then, after that freeze, it continues working from the same point. This error is not repeatable at one concrete point in a program, but happens mostly during playing Angry Birds. I created a backup and resetted the IPad to the factory settings and restored the backup. After that process the problem seems to be better, but not solved. The lagging-time is shorter, maybe half a second.
Will IPad 3 Be Fast Enough Browse Without Lagging?
I have owned 3 ipads in the 2 years that they have been out. I love the form factor but I always get frustrated with how slow they are to load pages. The ipad 2 was a step in the right direction, but still lags behind any decent computer in rendering a page, and wifi throughput. I got rid of my ipad 2 a few months ago.While perusing the thread with ipad retina wallpapers, I noticed that it took a good 2-3 seconds to render the photos on my macbook air. This was on a 30 mbps fiber line. Unless they have really, really bumped up the horsepower, and ram on the ipad I'm afraid that it will lag terribly trying to push all those pixels. My main wish even over the display, was for faster browsing.
Won't Work With Typing / Its Typing By Itself
My iPad have never worked, 5-10 min after I started it it is typing by itself. Like a self playing piano. This video illustrates the problem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkP0dfw598k&feature=related
So, do I have to return it or can it be fixed somehow?
Need To Know Typing On Defender
Thinking of stepping up my case on my iPad and was looking at the otterbox defender case. I currently have the apple case and love it for typing but was wonder how the OBD held up for typing on it in the raised stance. It looks great for watching a video, but looked a little high in the pics for typing. Can any one toss me some personal experience typing on the Defender int he cradle stand position?
How Is Typing On The Device?
Is the virtual keyboard big enough? Perhaps not for heavy-duty word processing, but how about for instant messaging or on-the-fly editing? What is the best way to type? Portrait or landscape? Thumbs like the iPhone, or 5-fingered like a Mac? Any tips/tricks/strategies for getting the highest wpm out of the device?
Typing On The Device?
I'd like to get the impressions of the new owners of the ipad on typing. I was thinking of using it to type the book i'm writing. I assume it supports microsoft office for Mac and I hope that the keyboard is just like a regular keyboard.
Typing Lag Like IPhone?
On the iPhone I get tremendous typing lag on some sites with a "busy background" if you know what I mean (textures and pictures around the text box you're typing in). The iPhone will basically acknowledge every key press but lag in inputting them. The confirmation animation for a key press will occur almost when the phone sees fit. I hoped the 3GS would solve this, but it didn't. Guess the processor in the 3GS wasn't even strong enough. What about the iPad? Any typing lag ever? I'm hoping this is remedied with such a more capable processor, but if not it's hardly a dealbreaker. I barely type on those sites and if I do I can just copy and paste. But still...
Typing Not On Slant
Former wrist problem sufferer here. Back when i worked full time, i had to have my keyboard low, and tilted to the back to keep my wrists in line with my arms.Today, i can height adjust my chair and use the Apple keyboard on my MBP, and it is "good enough". I basically type with my arms on the desk and no pressure on the wrists.I love typing on my ipad in my lap. i'm fast at it (i think anyway), and it works well. Except i do miss the space bar a lot with my thumb for some reason. Still working on that aspect!But i can't type on my daughters in the Apple Case with the tilt. It bugs my wrists, i'm slow, and i quickly decided that it was not a priority for me to have a case with an angle.
Best Case For Typing?
Now that the iPad has almost been out for a month, what is your favorite case for being able to type conformtably? I bought the Apple case the day the iPad came out but I dont't really like it. I've been wanting to get the Incase Convertible Book Jacket but my Apple store has been sold out since it came out. Is there any other cases better than the Incase convertible jacket that can do the same stuff? I mainly want it for the low angle that props it up so I can type.
Ipad 2 Typing On Its Own
This is the second time my Ipad2 is typing like crazy on its own. The first time it happened was a couple of weeks ago and it was restored at the Apple Store. Now it is happening again and my important notes were erased in the course of that crazy typing. Would Apple replace my Ipad2?
How To Do Perfect Typing As Compared To Mac Pro
In the last month though, it's been 99.9% perfect in this regard. In fact, with auto correct, my typing on the iPad has been about on par with typing on my Mac Pro depending on context, messages or urls. (Apple bluetooth keyboard)
Notebook Application For Typing?
Would be nice if the ipad had a notebook application that would make it possible to write as an alternative to typing. This for me will make the ipad truly complete. Does anyone know if the smart folks at Apple are thinking about this?
Gizmodo Typing Is Problematic
Typing in portrait is better than anticipated but still quite a stretch for our average-sized hands, which means that letters like F G and H will take a moderate conditioning for some. What about in landscape mode, sitting flat on the table? Well this is problematic too, as the iPad sort of wobbles. The back is not perfectly flat, meaning your typing surface is never perfectly flat, so the virtual keyboard becomes that much more difficult to use.Sounds passable for a media consumption device, but seriously, this thing's got its own version of iWork?you're supposed to type on it. That explains the giant hardware keyboard attachment,
Case Sensitive Typing?
In places where I need to do sensitive lower case typing like on username and passwords fields, my iPad will automatically make the first letter a Capital one. How do I change that capital letter to a lower case one?
Apple Case For Typing?
My 3G iPad will arrive god-knows-when, but in the meantime, I'm trying to grab whatever accessories are necessary before they sell out. I'm eye-ing an InCase sleeve for it, but before I pull the trigger, I'm curious about how necessary people find the angled cases for comfort of typing?
How To Use Typing In Landscape Mode?
I just thought it might be interesting to see how everyone has been enjoying the keyboard so far for the iPad? I really enjoy typing on it (in landscape mode). I have actually made most of my posts on here from my iPad!
Unable To Respond After Typing?
Does anyone else have this issue: Brand new iPad (goes without saying), surf in safari for a bit, tap the search or address bar, start typing and the iPad stops responding. A few seconds later, whatever you typed appears. I've noticed this in Mail, Pages, EverNote, etc.
Bug With Typing In Landscape Mode
It does not happen every time, but on occasion when a popup for "Undo Typing" or "Choose a Wifi Network" shows up while typing, the popup window is under the keyboard. The keyboard is disabled while the popup is there, so the hide keyboard button does not work. The visible buttons on the popup are usable, but are rarely what I want to select. I can just use the home button, but in Safari this usually means I lose whatever I was typing at the time. It doesn't sound like much of a bug, but it is very annoying. I have turned off "Ask to Join Networks", but I can't find a way to turn off "Undo Typing". Is there a way to turn off this feature?
Printing - Typing Up Docs
I'm sure you all get these questions all too often, but here it is again. I am a freshman in college, I have a first gen. MacBook Air. I love it, but if I can sell it and get an iPad instead, I would. I have done a bit of research on the topic.I have found some concerns being that the iPad can't multitask, sync with printers, and does not always export Pages (does Pages on iPad have a word count?) docs. correctly. Are these true?I don't use CD's, so that won't be a problem. A list of things I would use it for are as follows:1. Printing2. Typing up docs.3. Doing research for papers 3. Doing research for papers 4. Note taking (are there any good apps for this function? I use Evernote on my Air)
Double Charaacters When Typing
I've had an iPad for about a month and have the problem of characters being typed twice when using the on-screen keyboard. It doesn't alwayss happen, but when it doess it is generally either the ss, a, or l. I have had a screen protector on and thought that was causing the problem, but have since taken it off for the lasst week but the problem persists. I haavent edited this post sso you can see How often it happens, and alot of the previouss haass been auto spell checked so it iss much more frequent then even thiss posst indicates. I'm not "hanging on" to thesse specific letters ass I type, and am aat aa loss. Do I just have aa dud and should return it or is there something Im missing here?Thankss
Bluetooth Keyboard Is Typing On Its Own ?
I just paired the apple bluetooth keyboard with my iPad and when I type a few characters it goes crazy and starts typing on its own. I have to delete the email to get it to stop, or back space and then it deletes everything on its own.
A B Errors Most Common In Typing?
Typing on thisbthingb is killing me! I look at my damn fingers while I type and I still get a b in place ofba space. To illustrate my point, I am not fixing any errors bas I typebthis. Is it just me?
Won't Work With Typing And Autocorrection
Can someone explain how the iPad "learns" the way I type? Is the learning only for each specific situation, or does it notices consistent spelling errors across applications? (I'm guessing the former, based on my experience).
I'm asking 'cause I notice that it can be pretty inconsistent about what errors it corrects. For example, sometimes it'll correct my name "Aarin" to "Aaron" and sometimes it won't, so I always have to keep an eye on my typing as well as its corrections. It's a bit distracting.

Typing From MacBook Via Bluetooth?
I am wondering if it would be possible to type quickly on a keyboard from a mac, and have the iPad recieve it like it was a bluetooth keyboard. If it's possible, I'd like to save myself $60 or so!
Do You Find Typing Comfortable?
I've been trying to use my iPad more for emails rather than just for browsing. Several times when I have tried using it for extended periods on a table with the Apple Case I found myself hunched over the table due to the angle of the screen which is uncomfortable. The solution below (ipad case plus compass stand) provides a better angle for viewing while still allowing for fairly comfortable typing. I was wondering if there are other stands/cases which allow for a steeper typing angle.
IPad 3 :: How Are They For Typing Essays Out
Looking at buying an Ipad 3 fairly excited really, its going to be something new and diffrent after only ever using Windows. I am begin new training at work which is going to involve writing essays etc. I am wanting a new laptop for this, my one is fairly dated now and also wanting something more portable to take on holiday and out and about. How are they for typing essays out, being a touch screen will be a diffrent experiance? I do take a fair amount of picture, my dig SLR camara using Canon software, how is the Ipad for this? and can I buy a Ipad lead to mini USB? Also, I can only stretch to a 16GB, wont really be storing movies on it maybe 2-3 if that, but with apps, saved files and pictures up to 500, how will 16GB fair?
On-screen Keyboard Typing?
Since i have been a member here I have run across more than one person who says that he/she can type in an effective way using the on-screen iPad keyboard. Of course, everything is relative, so I don't doubt those claims. But my question is can one really learn to put down the words quickly using the on-screen keyboard of the iPad? And if so, then the next question is does one really want to do this? My answers are No and a BIG NO. The reason for the latter response is because it just feels horrible and I don't want to get used to that if I still have to use a regular keyboard.
I did do a search on Youtube and found one video of a lady comparing her typing speed on a MBP, the iPad using the Apple BT keyboard (full sized), and finally on the iPad using its on-screen keyboard. I admit to being quite surprised as she started pecking out words directly on the iPad screen (finally claiming to get 60+ wpm). Doing that to me felt quite strange. The lack of any kind of feedback was totally disconcerting for me, but she seemed to take to it as a fish to water.
I decided to do a little test. Using Display rec., Taptyping, and iMovie, I made a video of me typing on the on-screen keyboard of the iPad (2012) model. I'd like to hear, or see, how others do on this test. I normally type nearly 50 rpm which is plenty for me. I made no attempt to practice on for this, but I have been using an iPad nearly every day since March 11, 2011, so that is the sum total of my experience.
Double Letter When Typing On It
When touching the letter a on the keyboard. When I tap on the letter "a" normally like any other letter or key, it tends to give me a double letter "aa" and I have to back space and remove the second letter. How did you fix this?
Typing And Moving Screens Automatically?
My IPad is typing on it's own!It's "glitchy" in that it moved from one screen to the next without me touching it, like it's possessed!It moved itself to the search screen and started typing random letters, I actually see the letters on the keyboard being punched in. I'm freaking out. This seems to be the mother glove. PS doesn't do it all the time, just when it wants to. Also I've cut off and on, and tried to sync with itunes.
Thin Case That Has A Typing Position
I have been on this ipad board ever since I bought an ipad back in june. I currently have a sleeve and the apple case for my ipad. I truly hate the apple case and never use it. I am looking for a thin case that has a typing position. That is really all I am looking for. I saw the booq case and fell in love with it but I heard it wears easily and is overall not that good of a case.
Enable Touch Typing On Keyboard
This seems so simple, I'm surprised Apple hasn't thought of it. I have no idea if it would work in practice, but in theory it makes sense. What if Apple implemented haptic feedback ONLY on the "F" and "J" key, and only on the first time it is hit.So you can place your hands in the touch-typing position, you get that haptic feedback when your pointer fingers are placed on the F and J keys, and you can type away. Anytime you want to reposition your fingers, you get that "buzz" "buzz", and you know you're in the right spot.
