A reluctant iUser ,


I am a die-hard Blackberry user, not a fan of the "iWay" and its minimalist interface, so when I received an iPad as a present it has been no end of frustration to navigate around in text-entry fields. This Cursor Keyboard application goes a long way towards correcting the fundamental flaws Apple designed into the iPad interface.

It may not be allowed by the keyboard API but one thing that would be a huge help would be having the ability to anchor the cursor with a key press as the first step in using the arrow keys to select a block of text. Dragging "handles" about is awkward and too imprecise for my fat fingers.

Great Solution

Perfect when you need cursor keys. For years this is the only additional keyboard that I’ve enabled. By only using this keyboard and the default keyboard I can quickly switch between them when I need cursor keys. I use it on iPad and iPhone. It is great on both. It is baffling that Apple doesn’t offer cursor keys on the default keyboard. Bravo to this developer.

French Quarter, New Orleans ,

Pretty good - only one out there.

This is the only solution out there for having easy to use arrow keys, etc.

For the life of me, I do not understand why Apple does not add arrow keys to the keyboard for iOS. Apple has them only for certain screen orientations (landscape) and certain devices. Arrow keys need to be universal.

This is the best substitute I have found.

Very easy to use. Just hit the globe key and it pops up. It can be hard to get to, if you have multiple keyboards installed, as the globe key will try to bring up all of your keyboards. I recommend having just your main keyboard and this keyboard installed.
