    Re: How can we type numbers and symbol on the iPad?

    Ipad is a device which does not come with a hard full length keyboard. There is an option for buying a keyboard dock for the iPad, but that is just an option. The virtual keyboard of the iPad does not include the numbers and the symbols on the front. To type in a number or a symbol, there is a swap key on the keyboard. On pressing that key, the keyboard changes to numerical and symbols. Now to change it back to the alphabetical mode, the swap key should be pressed once again. You can also keep pressing down the swap key, and then slide the screen to get the numerical and symbol keyboard on top of the alphabetical one, and once typed, it changes back to the normal one.

    Hello Friend,

    You don't need to expense at any app to insert symbols and numbers from your iPad.All you need to know is some basic tips like:-

    1)For many keys,you can enter its variation by holding the kay for some time.Eg:-In order to input Pound or the Euro currency symbol, just hold the $ key for some second and a pop up will appear with alternative symbols.

    2)In order to input numbers & symbols tweaking with your keyboard settings can also help.Settings → General → Keyboard → Shortcuts and then Tap on + tab to get a new keyboard shortcut.So every time you'll use a new symbol it will get added to this shortcut.
