I think we can all agree that one of the best features on BlackBerry 10 is the new keyboard. It has been greatly improved to make it easier, a lot more accurate and faster to type. You will absolutely love it, if you don’t already, but there are a few tips and tricks that you should know to make your experience with the BB10 keyboard even better.

1. You can add new languages to the keyboard by going to Settings, Language and Input, then Input Languages, and Add/Remove Languages.

2. Misspelled words are underlined in red. To correct it, just tap the word and select the right one from the pop-up menu that shows up. If you want to add the word to your dictionary, just tap “Add to Dictionary”.

3. If you wish to hide the keyboard, simply long press the space button and do a two finger swipe down. To bring it back up, do a two finger swipe up.

4. To use a single special character, swipe down on. If you want to use multiple special characters, use the dedicated button located at the bottom left corner.

5. To lock the capslock, long press the “A” button until a blue line shows up under it. To unlock it, press it again.

6. You can enter special characters, such as accents and “ñ”, by long pressing the corresponding letter.

7. To delete an entire word without having to tap backspace multiple times, just hold the backspace button and swipe to the left.
