    Simple question: does anyone know if it is possible to add a one-handed Dvorak keyboard layout to the iPad?

    This would make using the iPad a lot more enjoyable for some people—qwerty isn't the best one-handed layout.

    That would be the kind of app Apple would be expected to block. They want to force us to do things the Apple way. If's fine if you want to build an app that showcases how to roll your own cigars, but if you want to roll your own user interface or patch Apple's user interface for an iThing, expect to release your app only on Cydia.

    For example, StyleTap PalmOS emulator is only available on jailbroken devices. It violates Apple's rule about executable content or interpreted code.

    The only way would be if a developer released an application that uses that custom keyboard for their own application.

    Other than that, you cannot unless you jailbreak your device.
