iPhone Hacks shows a pretty ingenius idea, if only in concept – a hacked keyboard with the number row. The app is called 5-Row QWERTY Keyboard and is available through the Cydia repository. The question is: Would you use something like this? It could make typing quicker but will the error rate due to the close proximity of the keys increase beyond useful? Also, would you want a number pad along the right in landscape mode? Yes we are kidding.
