10 Typing Tips to Write Faster on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

10 Typing Tips to Write Faster on iPhone, iPad or iPod TouchMost of iOS users find about this feature when they accidentally drop their phone or shake it. When you perform a shake of your device, a popup appears requesting you to undo your last action. So, whenever you write a wrong letter or a full sentence, if you would like to undo that, just shake your device and the complete sentence or just one letter will disappear. This feature is very useful especially when you have to delete a big text.

2. Speedy Contractions

10 Typing Tips to Write Faster on iPhone, iPad or iPod TouchEven Apple is trying hard to improve their keyboard, still there are some difficulties when you use it. One of them is the usage of special characters. When you write a text and need to add a special character, you need to go to another page of keyboard and add the character. The same thing happens with contractions. They are created to combine two words together and make it shorter. But, when you are writing faster, you will always miss the apostrophe character. To add a quick apostrophe on two merged words, you can actually do by writing the same letter three times. For example, Instead writing ” We will ” you can write ” Welll ” and the autocorrect will auto-add the apostrophe for you and make it ” We’ll “. So, just duplicate the last letter one more time and the apostrophe will automatically appear.

3. The Domains Shortcut
