Perhaps you don't know it yet, but you are already in one of the two camps over how Apple refuses to allow Flash to work on iPads.

Scribble on iOS like you had a old Newton and good handwriting

People must really dislike Apple's on-screen keyboard for iPhones and iPads, because the instant we could try alternatives, we got alternatives. Some seem different for the sake of being different. Some, like TextExpander's one, add useful new features -- yet take away some of the usability. But then you get the odd keyboard like Mazec, which tries to offer a true alternative.

Swipe your way through even the longest texts without lifting a finger

Most people have gotten used to texting and typing on their iPads and iPhones, and chances are, they're good at it. However, it's undeniable that the standard thumb-texting can be pretty slow.

Swype by Nuance has come up with a clever solution to help us text and type faster and longer, with less fatigue.
