iPhone – Typing Trick

David Pogue published an invaluable trick for typing more quickly when there’s a lot of punctuation involved :

In a nutshell hold down the ‘.?123 key’ which transforms the keyboard layout from alphabetic to numeric/punctuation and then drag to the punctuation mark or number you want. When you lift your finger the character is inserted and the keyboard snaps back to alphabetic again.

TheĀ  same trick works for the ‘shift key’ to do uppercase characters.
