    Used the notes app, held the iPad in my left hand and typed with my right, typed the alphabet correctly, the works. This time around, I figure my attempt is fast enough to beat the record no matter how the time is measured.

    Met all requirements stated in the Rules. Time was obtained by analyzing the video afterwards and subtracting the beginning time from the finishing time, resulting in 3.16 seconds.
