Copenhagen, Denmark based indie developer Rasmus Porsager has released Type Nine Keyboard 2.0, an update to his keyboard utility for iOS devices. Type Nine Keyboard combines a t9 keypad layout with swiping. Once users become familiar with the movements — it takes a little practice — they’ll be able to type much faster, easier and more accurately, with editing a breeze thanks to the swipe cursor move and swipe deletion functionality (by the sentence, word or letter).
The app also has full support for VoiceOver, which is an Apple-developed accessibility feature (a11y) for blind, low vision, and visually-impaired users. When this feature is enabled, users will hear which key their finger is on, and can type accordingly.
In addition, Type Nine Keyboard offers built-in support for 34 different languages. As a result, users don’t have to switch keyboards when they need to type in a different language or alphabet. They also get automatic word suggestions in their target language, and can add new words to the dictionary in seconds. The app also constantly gets smarter and ensures that the most frequently typed word is always suggested first.
Other Type Nine Keyboard features include:
* A selection of easy-to-change themes to suit each user’s mood and preference
* Full access to all iOS emojis and smileys, which are automatically sorted from most used to least used
* The ability to re-size the keyboard for one-handed typing – which is ideal for users with an iPhone 6 plus or iPad
* Easy-to-follow tutorials that make it simple to get started and take advantage of the various tools and functions
Type Nine Keyboard Version 2.0 is claimed to be 8x faster than previous editions, and is designed with a re-imagined interface that is crisp, colorful, and intuitively lays out information and buttons.
“We worked extremely hard on this new version, and with several game-changing improvements and enhancements, we’re confident that it’s going to set a new standard for keyboard apps!” commented Rasmus Porsager.
As noted above, Type Nine Keyboard currently supports 34 languages, including: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, German, Danish, French, Turkish, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Greek, Romanian, Bosnian, Catala, Czech, Basque, Finnish, Irish, Croatian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Slovak, Slovene, Albanian, Swedish, Serbian latin, Serbian cyrillics, Bulgarian, Scottish Gaelic, Galician, and Manx. Users are invited to contact the developer to request new languages.
