Hi,

I'm a pretty fast typist but not phenomenally so.  I notice that when I type at my usual speed, the keypresses lag significantly behind the ones I make and occasionally a key registers twice.  I don't see this problem with regular bluetooth keyboards.

There also doesn't appear to be any problem pasting large strings to the iPad (although I've only pasted one url so far so it's hardly conclusive).

Can this be fixed please?

Hi!

Sorry to hear you ran into problems.

I have never seen any problems with lag between key presses.
Sure there is some processing needed to look up the letters in the keyboard layout, …
But your Mac should be plenty fast so you never notice this.

Maybe your typing speed is more phenomenal than you were let to believe. :-D
Maybe your Mac was just busy with something else.

You could try disabling the "key slide" animation.
Might improve performance some.

I had two reports today of keys repeating on the iPad.
This might be a bug. Or a performance problem.

Type2Phone (like a regular keyboard) tells the iPhone when keys are pressed and again when they are released.
Between those two notifications, the iPhone considers the key to be pressed and may decide to repeat the matching letter.
So if the "key up" event is slow to come, the iPhone could indeed generate repeat letters.

I have emailed you a link to the latest beta of Type2Phone 2.0.2
This fixes a bug with keys being repeated. I don't think that existed in the release version of 2.0.1
But I am not 100% sure of that.

Please give the beta a try.

Best,
Pierre Bernard

Hi, Thanks for sending me the beta.  It seems to have resolved the lag and repeating problem that I was having.

Hi!

I really hoped for Type2Phone 2.0.2 to be available by now.
I guess the holidays slowed down Apple's review queue.

Best,
