Ratings and Reviews
I love this app: use it daily and wouldn't know what to do without it. It makes typing on my iDevice a sinch. It seems the switchable keyboard orientations that make the iphone app so useful aren't included on the ipad version. I'd like to see this fixed in future versions, as well as the beeps you hear when keys are pressed changed to clicks. as I find the beeps a bit weird. the blank line command has the sound of an actual brailler embossing head going back for the nextline. something like this would be awesome. clipboard functions are hit and miss on the iphone version also. I write something then switch to a different app and the text isn't on the keyboard. rhwew. Sorry for the essay. lol.
I bought this app as I was away without my regular bluetooth keyboard, and although the concept is good the help function with all the links which tells you how to do certain things doesn’t work at all so how are you supposed to learn how to use it properly? That was most definitely money not well spent which is a shame as I bought it on recommendation.
I am using this on my iPad Mini. The keyboard is far superior than that on the iPhone 4s. For example I can type proficiently thanks to the keyboard simulating a Perkins Braille machine or similar hardware Braille input keyboard. I will say however that the self voicing mode should be used due to eratic touch behaviour with this and iOS 7's VoiceOver. Very pleased with this and can't recommend this highly enough if you want to be productive on your iPad. Download now!
