I like to find an alternate internal iPad keyboard.

I have a lot of problems typing accurately on my iPad. I'm probably not the only one.

Auto correct seems to be a necessary evil, but I need a smarter evil.

Ideas, suggestions?

Any bluetooth keyboard can interface with the iPad, I am not sure about a different internal one.

Thanks but I don't want an external keyboard.

There are a lot of variations out there in the app store that replace the native one.

Swiftkey is the best, even though on iOS it is handicapped due to Apples assine policies.

I'll take a look at that. What handicaps?

You can do more things with the Android version than the iOS version because of Apples policies on iOS.

Swiftkey On iOS vs Android: Apples To Oranges

A good article on the issue. It is relevant for all 3rd party keyboards basically. Apple might have opened up for 3rd party keyboards, but they have not done it all the way.. far from it.

Thanks again for the tip on SwiftKey. I like it. The "finger swiping" is meh, but rest is just fine for me.

Cheers!
