Typing Tips for your iPhone

Typing on your iPhone: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly


I wouldn't say my fingers are abnormally large (see photo right), but whenever I try to type on my iPhone, I can't help but make mistakes—unlike on my Pearl which I can type messages on with one hand no problem. Well a recent study has shown that iPhone users make significantly more texting errors than other cell phone users, although managing to type at the same speed. Even though iPhone users have an entire keyboard which display on their screens, they still manage to make more mistakes — I can definitely vouch for this! As you will see in the video demonstration below, there are ways around this new statistic, as the iPhone should allow you to type as fast as if you were using a BlackBerry.

One more little tidbit which is revealed at the end. . . . Although the iPhone doesn't allow cutting and pasting of text in notes, you can hold your finger down on the screen to reposition the cursor wherever you need to make an edit. Very good to know!
