Keyboard shortcuts are a really quick and cool way to type your phrase or words on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Plus, creating your very own and unique keyboard shortcuts is a heck of a lot of fun! So when you create a shortcut on your iDevice, from that point onwards it automatically turns into the word or sentence that you want. And that’s terrific news for many of us who text, email, etc while on the run…or when doing other things. Hey, it’s a multitask world, so let’s harness the power of our iDevices to help get work done.
Add Your Shortcuts
And adding a keyboard shortcut is fairly easy. Simply tap Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut. Then, type in your phrase, shortcut, and tap “Save.”
Now when you create a new shortcut your iPhone, iPad, or other iDevice will show an option to use the information you entered as your phrase. That’s pretty darn nice!
And delete keyboard shortcuts
So if you want to completely erase a shortcut, there are some pretty easy ways to delete keyboard shortcuts. We have two ways to delete keyboard shortcuts.
The first one is to tap the “Edit” button followed by the red minus sign (see Image 2 and IMG 3).
And the second way is swipe your finger (left to right, or right to left) on the shortcut that you want to delete. After a second, a red Delete option will appear (Image 4).
Keyboard shortcuts are a way of life. They are the zen of texting. And they’re a heck of a lot of fun when dreaming up new short ways to say long things! So let’s all get shortcutting and have some fun in too. Cause hey, as a wise one once said, “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”
