    Anyone else annoyed with the "touchspace" (or whatever it's called) of the stock ios keyboard? I have always had an issue with because it seems like I have to place my entire thumb over the key to get it to register the one I want.

    Also, whenever I want to touch a link the phone registers my touch as the one directly in the middle of my finger, not the tip..... Hard to explain, maybe someone gets what I'm saying.

    And yes I already tried searching the forums for this topic. I just want some others' opinions on the area of register for taps.

    Thanks

    Do you happen to be left-handed?

    Whether it's a fault or a feature, the tapable (tappable?) area on iOS is optimized for right-handed and right-side up (as opposed to upside down) touch. I don't think apple ever points this out but here's a long read regarding it:

    Huh. I am right handed... and one handed typing is no problem. Interesting.

    ...Two thumb typing isn't accurate, though...

    I want to type quickly with two thumbs... Apples are for Consumers and not Producers?
