    Anyone else constantly press either b, n or m, instead of the spacebar? I'm obviously not tapping low enough but I end up typingblike thisnalot.

    YES. Excuse the caps but I'm glad it's not just me with my fat fingers.

    Also, given this, the software should be better at detecting sequences like 'youmandnme', and replace the n or m with a space.

    Same here, so I'm considering surgically resizing my fingers to fit the iPad. :eek:

    I hit the space bar with my right thumb and I often end up hitting the the number shifter which results in a stream of ((*&(6y(X. I wish the space bar was a little wider. It is probably the most common button that you hit in your typical sentence, so lets give it more space.

    IIRC the spacebar will indeed be made slightly wider in 4.1.3

    I keep trying to hit the space bar and accidentally hitting the shift key. So all my sentences look likeThis.

    Are you talking about portrait or landscape keyboards? I primarily use landscape and never had this problem. Portrait though = urgh!

    Glad I'm not the only one!

    I agree that autocorrect needs to be smarter...

    It is in iOS 4.3. It autocorrects two words if you mistype the space.

    I have the same problems at times. But when I'm typing long messages, I always use my bluetooth keyboard.

    i've been having the same problem. I've been convinced, though, that even when i'm careful to hit the space bar, the n or b flashes and it types the wrong character anyway. sometimes.

    I'm sure I can type well enough. I don't experience any other errors like this (apart from obvious ones) - and the space bar is the biggest button on the whole keyboard!

    Have a go, see what you think. i've been doubting myself, but seeing this thread makes me wonder...

    That's about it. Sometimes I miss the space bar 8 timesin a row and end up with a 40 letter work.

    For real? I know it already separates two words without a space, but does it recognise erroneous m/n/b in 4.3?
