Since the release of iOS 8, Apple has finally allowed it’s users to use third party keyboards. Third party keyboards have been Android for quite a while. ‘Swiftkey‘ and ‘Swype‘ are the ones who rule in the Play Store on Android as well as the App store for iOS. These two work very well on Android, but not as good with iOS. The performance is just not satisfactory. Today, we are going to be talking about a third party keyboard that has been on iOS for a while, but only within the Jailbreak community. This is undoubtedly the best third party keyboard for iOS- Nintype, which is now available on the App store!
Yes, this funky looking keyboard is the Nintype keyboard! This keyboard with a very cool trippy effect is not all about looks. It is capable of typing 130 words per minute!! This is because of its capabilty to use two thumbs at the same time. It is isn’t very difficult to use and can be easily mastered. Works just like the standard keyboard. Press space to end a word, and the like. The only difference is that you can slide anytime. Construct words by combining taps and slides. It all comes naturally! If a word is not in the dictionary, just type it out normally (letter by letter) and add it. It’ll be there the next time you slide your words. The faster you type, the smarter it’ll guess things. Or slow down and be specific, really responsive. You can split and resize the keyboard any way you want – you can tweak it until you get it right! This works out great with iPhone 6 plus and iPad users. The keyboard also features gestures for different tasks, for example a horizontal swipe to the ‘backspace’ key allows us to erase a whole word and much more!
Also note that this keyboard has swipeselection integrated into it by swiping on the spacebar, making this keyboard a compkete package. Totally worth the price. Definitely need to try out this keyboard as there is no doubt it is the best third party keyboard for iOS out there.
Get it on the App Store for $4.99
