Ratings and Reviews
Needs Layout And Design Improvement
This app has a lot of potential, but there are a few simple things that could drastically improve it.
- The modifier and layer keys should either have a different bg color, or a different border color than the rest of the keys (related to the point above.
- The emoji section should include a backspace key (an “x”) so that people can quickly erase a wrongly chosen emoji.
*If these changes are made, I’ll give this 5 stars.
EDIT: I see now that one of the options was available in settings.
Developer Response ,
Now Big Keys includes Predictive typing and Auto Correct.
I'm happy to let you know that an update is now on it's way, it should be available in a day or 2 after Apple approves it. This update will provide you with both requested features.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any more suggestions or questions.
version 1.8.1 was unusable
UPDATE: I downloaded 1.8.2 (which was apparently made available shortly after originally posting this review), and it appears to have fixed my problem - or maybe it was some strange glitch which I can no longer duplicate. I didn't keep a copy of 1.8.1, so I can't say for sure either way. UNEDITED ORIGINAL REVIEW FOLLOWS; PLEASE IGNORE. This was a very nice alternative keyboard, but the latest update has the keyboard panel showing up as totally blank. Luckily, tapping the blank space two or three times makes the device revert to the default keyboard, so it doesn't totally gum up the works, but I've had to revert to the older version to get this working again.

Waste of the money
So far I'm unimpressed and have only had the app an hour. It isn't correcting/adding grammar at all - so when I want to type "I'm" it doesn't add an apostrophe and auto corrects it to "in" instead. Doesn't automatically capitalize the letter at the beginning of a sentence either. Also, keyboard lag. Lastly, even if I make a very minor spelling error on a common word it completely changes my word to something ridiculous and out of this world. It's taking me 100x as long to type something up because I have to go back through and correct 99% of what I typed, PLUS I have to type slow because of the lag, lol. (I also just noticed that this app is REMOVING my grammar (i.e I just used a capital "I" and it corrected it to a lowercase "i".))
What a waste of money behind such a good concept.

We are reviewing these issues which you have raised and would like to make sure of the language you selected in the Big Keys settings. Sadly grammar is not currently supported in this version, we are working on adding this feature soon.
- We have tried "I'm" and auto correct didn't change it to "in". If you typed "im" then it will be changed to "in".
- Regarding "I" we tested it and the keyboard was not changed to "i" We would like to contact you and see why is this happening.
We are sorry to hear about your bad experience and we fully understand if you require a refund.
Please feel free to contact me at Hassan@youapps.co so we can sort these issues.
