Should there be one? Sometimes its extremely hard to make keyboard disappear when you have lots of links, pics etc on webpage. Two ideas: double tap on keyboard to make it disappear or include special "disappear" key.

Anyone else feel the same? or think this is problem at all?

since most of us are coming from N9 or something similar using the maliit keyboard (as in saifish) we are used on swipping down the keyboard to dissapear. Donnot know if there is room for another key (space bar is already small enough)

You know you can hide the keyboard by dragging it down right? Press and hold on top of keyboard and drag it down, release finger..

It doesn't work for me.

@Sthocs : I said exactly the same thing, but it works. You have to find the good timing. And drag a letter from the top line to the bottom of your screen, quite quickly.

Hey thanks for this tip. Even though it works (sometimes, sort of) I think this should be indicated somehow so that people actually use it. Maybe it would be worth an extra button?

Ok, it works well, but not as described: you simply have to quickly drag any letter to the bottom.

@Sthocs thanks a lot, this actually works reliantly
