Sick of the keyboard

I don't know about anybody else but I have been having a really annoying problem with the on screen keyboard. It seems like a crapshoot whenever I tap a search field or text box the keyboard blinks in and out while typing two or three times before it stays up.

Re: Sick of the keyboard

When I first got my PB I seemed to have the same issue. What I have found is that it took me some time to touch the field correctly to activate the keyboard. I guess the PB trained me. :smileyhappy:

Re: Sick of the keyboard

if you swipe up from the bottom left hand corner it will open/close the keyboard manually.

Re: Sick of the keyboard

didn't know about the swipe up, cheers.

I have noticed on certain apps/sites buttons are very hard to press, this is related to the original thread issue.

Re: Sick of the keyboard

And the two top corners bring down the taskbar, but you probably already knew that.
If you hold down the shift button it activates caps lock.
If you touch the wifi symbol on the task bar then touch the waves it brings you to the wifi settings....the same goes for battery and bluetooth.

I know this is completely unrelated but some cool features none the less.
