iPhone Tip – Keyboard Slide

Even though the touch keyboard is versatile. . .it still takes time to bring up the 2nd set of characters/numbers and then go back to the regular letters. Here I will show you how to automatically go back to your regular keyboard to continue typing.

Instead of touching the “123” button, then touching the character(or number), then touching the “123” button again. You can simply touch the “123” button and slide to whichever character(or number) you want. Then when you let go it automatically switches back to the letter keyboard.
