    I use my left hand. Reaching the send with my thumb is really hard.

    Typing with one hand is really hard too.

    Any tips? Ideas? Apps I could install or accessibility options available?

    Thanks.

    I just have a problem hitting the send button in quick reply sometimes. Do either of those keyboards add a send button closer to the keyboard on quick reply?

    I have the same problem with quick reply. They should send the message right away when you press "return" in quick reply instead of inserting a new line.

    That's fine. I was answering the question of alternate ways of sending iMessages with one hand.

    Siri would be my first choice as well. The dictation option is pretty accurate. Although I'm assuming OP is in a situation where talking out loud would be inappropriate?

    I have to say these were the first apps I downloaded as soon as I bought the iPhone 6. A sudden freedom to use third party keybaord's after years of being told we are being held back on iOS. After a couple of days with each I deleted them from my keyboard settings as I thought they were rubbish. I actually paid for one of them too and that annoyed me. I know many like them though and would recommend anybody give them a try as they might work for you. :)
