Enable Unique Symbols On Your iPad Keyboard

by on July 2nd, 2010

The iPad keyboard comes with many of the standard keyboard symbols that most PC and Mac computers feature. To view them, simply tap and hold on any key on the iPad keyboard and a few symbols relating to that specific key will be displayed.

But the iPad keyboard is also missing many symbols such as the Apple logo (found on Mac computers) or other unique characters. If you want to enable these for your iPad, check out the following tip using a web app called Glyphboard!

Glyphboard is a web app that allows users to generate symbols on their iPad such as an Apple logo, arrows, mathematical symbols, and much more. To get started, follow the steps below:

1.) Visit http://mrgan.com/gb/ with Safari on your iPad (Internet connection required).

2.) Add the website as a home screen bookmark by tapping the “+” symbol in Safari and then tapping on “Add to Home Screen”.

3.) Exit Safari and tap on the new bookmark on your Home Screen. What will open is the Glyphboard web app!

Glyphboard currently includes 48 characters/symbols that can be copied and pasted anywhere on your iPad. This means that users can paste symbols to emails, notes, calendars, SMS, contacts, and more!

If you’ve ever wondering how some people have Apple logos in their signatures or forum names, use this web app to find out!
