    So I use my iPad a lot for taking notes in class but there is no tab key which makes outlines annoying. Are there any third party keyboards you can get for iPad. I know on my iPhone I could add emoji keyboard that added a button to keyboard. Are there any extra keyboard for iPad that have a tab button

    If you tap the space bar with four fingers I'm sure it does a small tab of four spaces. It's kinda awkward though and probably easier just to press the space bar a few times though. You could try it out though and see how it goes :)

    Some apps have an indent function built in. I believe Pages does, though I haven't used it in so long, I can't be certain. I use Notebooks for iPad, and it has a secondary bar of format keys (using MultiMarkdown formatting) which includes an indent key.

    Using a BT keyboard is a faster & more effective option though if you're predominantly a touch typist.
