    What is the shortcut method to type in numbers on the iPad?

    How can you type numbers of the iPad faster? Can this same method be applied to symbols also?

    can replace your number. You can also other for it

    Hello Friend,

    If you are looking for a better keyboard in app store to type in your iPad you won't get one.But there are some very cool built in tips which you can use to type fater and better in your iPad.

    Tips:-

    1)To enter numbers you are required to tap numbers key(?123) and to return back to normal mode you would require to tap on ABC key now.Instead what you can do is just Tap and hold the Number key to bring up the number/symbol keyboard, drag your finger to the digit or symbol you want to type, and let it go. It would immediately returns to ABC mode after typing your number.

    2)You can also enable shortcuts to prevent yourself from typing same thing again and again.To enable shortcuts Go to Settings >>>>> General >>>>>> Keyboard and turn on the "Shortcut option."

    3)Many keys shows a list of alternative symbols/options if you tap and hold them for 1 second.Example:-Holding down $ in the number/symbol keyboard would bring other currency symbols(Euro,Pound etc).

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and visit again.

    You can download the software through which you can speak the numbers that will appear on the screen this is the most easiest way to type or write the numbers.
