Access the virtual keyboard in Mojo Apps [webOS 3.0.2]

This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0.2 and higher

When you run a phone-based mojo app on the TouchPad, many of those apps show up in the phone emulation mode because they have not been (or can not be) updated to run as full-screen apps. Since those apps were built for a phone with a keyboard always available, some apps had compatibility issues since there was no way to trigger the virtual keyboard in webOS 3.0.0 if there was no text input box. In addition, the initial webOS 3.0.0 release had some bugs that could cause the keyboard to not pop-up at times. Luckily, the webOS 3.0.2 update brought with it a dedicated keyboard pop-up button (  ) on the bottom-right of the screen when running a non full-screen mojo app. Just tap that icon and the virtual keyboard will pop-up for your typing pleasure!
