Using the screen keyboard on iPad, is their a way to delete the character after the cursor? That is, behavior like the Windows delete key?

I am aware that the convention is to use Fn+delete on Macs. If there is no such convention on iPad, it might be nice to use shift+delete.

On Mac, one can also use control + D for this purpose. –  Mahnax Jan 7 '12 at 0:04
    
@Mahnax Ooo...very cool little shortcut! I need to remember that one! –  daviesgeek Jan 7 '12 at 20:12
    
@daviesgeek Yeah, I actually discovered it by accident once. –  Mahnax Jan 7 '12 at 22:27

Sorry, but no. This only works on the iPad if you are using an external Bluetooth keyboard.

The app Textkraft has a forward-delete key.

You should provide a link to the app, at least, and mention what sort of app it is. –  CajunLuke Sep 13 '12 at 18:22
