    It is a similar experience like a physical keyboard.

    Well this is definitely a gamechanger for me. Fully validate my order right now.

    The keyboard on the Pro is significantly easier to type on over the standard size iPad. So much so that I have not needed to purchase the accessory keyboard/case.

    I was never going to buy the keyboard case anyways so this makes me happy.

    Its funny how big of a deal everybody is making about these new keyboard cases but nobody really talks about how awesome the new software keyboard is. I can't imagine needing a physical keyboard after this

    The new software keyboard is great. Makes me feel a little better about not being able to find a smart keyboard :).

    I think as the return period for the keyboard cases gets closer to expiring we will hear more. :)

    Typing on an actual keyboard is miles better than on the Pro. But the Pro is the best iOS-device keyboard yet for typing on.

    My only problem with the software keyboard at this point is the amount of real estate that it takes up on screen. It's one thing to use pages and numbers etc on the larger IPP screen, but when you use the software keys, then 1/3rd of the screen is blocked.

    Question - but no soft keyboard commands to switch apps, so have to use swipe up?

    Sorry think I asked this before and you have to swipe across, so don't think it will work for me.

    Does Command Tab not do it ?

    I love the software keyboard so much... It is the best onscreen keyboard experience I ever had.
