Is there anyone who knows whether it is possible to have or install a "forward delete" feature on the iPad? It is a real pain without that whenever one makes a typing error.

Thanks.

Not without an external BT keyboard. I recently purchased one from Amazon for $40 which has a full range of keys including Fn and forward - backward delete. Here is the LINK to the keyboard.

Great. Many thanks. This helps. I do have a keyboard for the iPad, but sometimes it's more comfortable not using.

Cheers,

Emile

All keyboards have a forward delete. It's just that some (like Apple's) don't have a dedicated key for it.

On the Apple BT keyboard (the silver, little one with no numberpad, aka the laptop keyboard layout) -- the "fn" (function) key and delete = forward delete.
