    Period instead of a space

    I've been dealing with this god damn problem since day one and have tried retraining my finger movements to type on this keyboard, but about 40% of the time I hit the edited by moderator period instead of the spacebar. At first I didn't find it too annoying, but I like being grammatically correct so now when I send a text it looks like I pause after every other word or so because I no longer feel like doing back and replacing my accidental period with a PROPER space..

    I see a clear solution and all they have to do is make the period button the same size as any other key, and make the spacebar slightly bigger.. its such a simple fix I wish I was good enough at coding to do it myself..

    But anyways, my main question is... Does this happen to anyone else or are my fingers retarded!?!??!

    your fingers are retarded.

    haha, jp.

    i have the same issue once in a while, but i've been using the voice to text feature a lot. it's incredible how close the voice recognition is on this thing...it's really close to being almost as good as the medical transcription software i've used.

    try a different keyboard - different keyboards will have different layouts

    swiftkey, bettercut, and swype are all the ones i have on my DX

    Edit: I meant better keyboard (bettercut is a home replacement)

    easily fixable.. get Better Keyboard. i LOVE this app.. makes the keyboard buttons 10x easier to hit without errors. also, the space bar is like 3x as wide as any other button.. not to mention it is skinnable with a ton of cool ****. check it out dude, you won't be disappointed.
