Hi,

Sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't see anything which really answered my Q...

I have just purchased a wireless Apple keyboard to use with my iPad. It works fine except for one thing - there doesn't seem to be a way to send a message (either email, iMessage or Facebook) without having to physically press send on the iPad itself.

Does anyone know of a way this can be achieved?

Cheers.

The Apple Wireless Keyboard is not optimized for the iPad's touch screen interface. You'll notice, for example, that there is no "home" button as there is on some third party bluetooth keyboards designed for the iPad.

There may be a way to accomplish what you're trying to do but I haven't found it and doubt that it exists.

Thanks for the reply, that's another problem with it... I thought I'd be getting the most optimised keyboard buying from Apple. Guess not. Cheers.

Which Logitech one do you have?

The Logitech Tablet KB for iPad works pretty well, even has a Home Button....but as mentioned above, you still need to physically use the screen to send an iMessage or Facebook Message, etc....
