This awesome iOS keyboard does something that SwiftKey, Swype and others can’t

Best iOS 8 Keyboards Nintype

With so many third-party iOS 8 keyboards to choose from these days, standing out can be a huge challenge for anyone who’s not an established player. New iOS keyboard Nintype, however, brings something completely new to the table in that it lets you use two fingers at once to quickly zip out messages on your smartphone.

In addition to allowing for BlackBerry-style two-thumb typing, the keyboard also lets you resize it to meet your specific finger size and to store your most often-used words by hot keying them to different letters. So for instance, if you say “orangutan” a lot, you could just hold down your space bar and press “o” and “orangutan” would pop up in your message.

MacRumors got a chance to try out this new keyboard app, which it says allows you to type roughly 100 words per minute on your smartphone. Because the keyboard is so different from the default iOS keyboard, however, MacRumors says that there is a learning curve that you’ll have to overcome before you get used to it.

“Users are advised to use the keyboard as a standard keyboard to begin with, inserting swipe-based words gradually to adjust to the difference,” MacRumors writes.

If you’re interested in buying Nintype, you should know that it will set you back by $4.99, so it’s much more expensive than other third-party keyboards out there. Be sure to check out its iTunes App Store page by clicking the source link below.
