What??? I find gliding a huge boost to text entry.

I don't think the standard iPad keyboard has it, so when it sometimes
pops up instead of (my default) Gboard, it slows me down.

Gboard on Android phones, with gliding and Personal Dictionaries (=macros)
are great, if you are messaging and posting for a few hours daily. The
gliding hit rate is probably about 95% for me.

Observation: I see the young entering text almost exclusively with both
thumbs -- nobody glides, and they are fast, but they need both hands for that.
