iPad and iOS 5 changes – Split Screen Typing on the iPad

by useyouriPad on September 10, 2011

The iOS 5 will have over 200 changes and include many productivity changes we have been looking for. This is a quick post on the keyboard changes according to Apple.  The way I type I can use an iPad as fast as I can use a keyboard but this should speed up the typing and allow me to use with clients in many more functional ways. The new split screen option will allow you to type with your thumbs so you won’t have to set the iPad down to type anymore. For Realtors imagine walking through a home and typing notes on your iPad for your clients to have when you are finished with the tour or walkthrough. This option should be about as fast as typing on an iPhone and should also allow you to comfortably  type while you are walking etc. More posts to come on the cool changes.
