    I use my iPad to take notes in class, but my issue is that I type in outline format so the lack of a TAB key on the iPad keyboard slows my typing speed significantly. Is there a custom keyboard for the iPad that does have a TAB key? I would like to avoid carrying the external keyboard dock or bluetooth keyboard.

    I actually have the same issue - i find myself formatting using the space bar, which is time consuming (excessively so because I am pretty anal about keeping my notes and outlines neat and aligned. so each indent needs to be the same amount of spaces..)

    I would love it if there was a solution for this.

    Exactly - same thing with me. Hitting the Space Bar 10x gets time consuming.

    You can two, three, four finger +....tap the space bar for more spaces at one time, but yeah, I generally hate the keyboard and wish replacements where available that were not app specific.

    I grabbed Documents to Go from the app store which has indent management and auto bullet and numbered lists. Everything I needed for notes at work.
