Give it some time. There is a learning curve with the screen but eventually you will get the hang of it. One thing that I found to be extremely helpful and minimizes typing errors is not to overlap your fingers when typing across the keyboard (i.e right thumb is used to press letters on the right hand of the screen and the left for letters on the left side). If you look at the keyboard it is pretty much divided in half. I initially found my self alternating between left and right when I type.
For example if you were to type "are" all three clicks should be with your left thumb.
Hope this helps
just to add confusion to this, i can type using a golf glove though....wouldnt the leather stop that current from touching the screen ?
