    OUt of curiosity, if I have an HTML form with multiple fields, is there
    an easy way to jump from one field to another without clicking on "DONE"
    on the keyboard, cliking on the next field and re-entering the keyboard ?

    Or put it differently, is there the equivalent of the "TAB" key that
    lets you switch input context from one field to another ?

  2. To the left of the Done button is an AutoFill button, and the the left of
    that button are Previous and Next buttons. Tapping the Next button will
    take you to the next field, just like a tab button would. Tapping the
    Previous button will, of course, take you to the previous field.

    Thanks. I never noticed this. Will have to look at this next time I get
    a multi field form.

    You can also tap on any field to select it, and drag the form around
    without losing the keyboard. Usually the 'next' is easier, but I've
    occasionally seen forms where the layout is such that you see the field
    and not the text before it.
