    Can you have the keyboard set so that when you press a key it enlarges/highlights briefly like it does on the iPhone so you're sure what key you pressed?
    Can you set safari so that you can swipe left/right to go back/forward through webpages as you can using the trackpad on a MacBook pro?

    To both questions, no, not that I know of.

    To be fair, the keyboard in portrait is already fairly large, each key is roughly the size of an actual keyboard, maybe a little smaller. And in landscape? You'd be hard pressed to miss each key.

    As for Safari, the gestures you can use on the iPad are for swiping between apps and the multitasking bar, not for swiping between pages. I think there is a web browser you can download on the App store for that ability, but don't quote me on that.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Ok thanks. The option to swipe back and forth through web pages would be nice, but it's obviously no biggie not having this.

    Icab is the browser that does that and it's very good. It supports quite a lot of other gestures as well
