Canvas 5: Typing

This week on Canvas, Federico and I dig into how to be more efficient with typing and text entry on iOS.

There are several things you can do to become a better keyboard user on iOS. Some of the areas we cover include:

  • Learning the 'swipe up' shortcut on several keys such as comma and period.
  • Tap and hold on certain keys for alternate characters such as accented characters.
  • Mastering the Trackpad Mode on iOS 9.
  • Using the keyboard's shortcut bar.
  • Using the iOS system-wide Text Replacement feature
  • Adopting some of the more powerful iOS custom keyboards
  • ....or amusing yourself with some of the crazier ones.
