You are used to typing with thumbs on your phone, and now have an iPad that is too wide for your thumbs to meet in the middle to type as you usually do. How can you make your thumb typing habit more accessible and easier?


- Die-hard thumb typists have nothing to fear. In order to change your keyboard layout to accommodate your thumbs, once your native keyboard is up on your screen display drag TWO fingers from the middle of the keyboard towards each side of the screen. Your keyboard display will magically separate into two so that it literally touches either end of the lower screen thus making it easier for your thumbs to wrap around the iPad. Note that whether or not you are using landscape or portrait mode, the split keyboard function will work for you. To return the two halves to one keyboard, just take TWO fingers and drag or swipe each half your keyboard simultaneously from the outer edges inwards. That's it for now, thumb folks!
