A little keyboard trick for the iPad

So, in my last blog post, I mentioned how I wanted to be able to type on the TOP of the screen due to that being where my hands can most easily reach when I’m sitting in bed with the iPad propped up against my legs.  Turns out you can actually undock the keyboard by pressing and holding on the dismiss keyboard button.   It’s not a completely seamless experience … You can’t dock the keyboard to the top of the screen and reflow the apps to the bottom.  And, of course, if you float the keyboard, it’s not uncommon for the onscreen keyboard to block out a lot of the content you want to view.  With that said, the usability of the onscreen keyboard is a great deal improved with this feature.  Color me happy for once.
