AOW: iPad Shortcuts

Hey everyone, I’m back! It’s been awhile since I did any posting, but Ive got another article of the week for you guys!

So as you all know by now, the Apple iDevices (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad)  have a virtual keyboard built into the hard drive so that you can surf the web, type notes, and text with. And while there are some shortcuts like autocorrect that are somewhat well known to help you, there are some keyboard shortcuts that can help as well. First, there are some letter shortcuts, such as with a, e, n, and o, that if you press and hold them, related accented letters will appear for you to freely use. Some other keying shortcuts are the currency shortcut, which is accessed by holding down the $ key, and lets you choose from keys such as the euro and the pound. For web surfing, there is the special .com button. If you hold it, then the other TDLs will apear, such as .net, .org, and .gov.

All of these shortcuts are pretty cool. When I found the article, I was surprised at some of these shortcuts, like the .com and the currency ones. If you know about these shortcuts, it it sort of helps make up for the autocorrect frustration. What I would like to see, though, is a shortcut for emoticons, or “smileys” on the iDevices. It would definitely help with non-flash chatrooms (Apple iDevices do not support flash player)

Well, that’s all the time I have for today. Thanks for reading! Stay paranoid. Seacow, out.
