Write English using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in any text app!

“Straightforward, well-organized, and easy to use. Thank you!” – user tlaney.

This app provides an English IPA keyboard that can be installed for use anywhere on your iPhone or iPad. Installation instructions are included.

The keyboard lets you type the IPA characters that are necessary to fully represent the pronunciation of English, including regional variations. Keyboard layouts are separately optimized for iPhone (three layers) and iPad (two layers).

IPA is used in many parts of the world to teach or document the pronunciation of English and other languages.

The keyboard and iOS are designed to protect your privacy: The keyboard can send text you type only to the app within which it is used; nowhere else. It does not access any other of your data.

Another review from me! The Language Geek!

Ok, so this app helped with lots of stuff. The times before this. I would use diacritics to try to help with the pronunciation of words. Like the when there is a (ə) I would use ê, or use the Azerbaijani keyboard. (ə vs ə). But with this keyboard. It is much quicker. I think some items are missing. Like the one that is supposed to make a English j sound. I tried combining d and ʒ to make it but I end up the dʒ, and they are not connected. And also other ones the has the ʒ letter. Or mabye make an diacritic attachment thing to attach a [ʒ] to the side of a letter. You are also missing [ʕ].
This app is very amazing nonetheless. And it deserves 5 stars. And you deserve more attention than you have.

Great app and great developer!

The app is very useful for my needs. Initially, I had a bit of a problem getting the app to work, but that was resolved quickly. The developer is very helpful and quick to respond! The app costed a little more than I initially hoped for, but with this kind of support, it is well worth the cost. 👍🏻

Great app! Just what I was looking for, though 3.99$ is a bit expensive, I have to say. I wish if it stays in App store and won’t be deleted or perished for any reason.

Developer Response ,

Thank you! Your willingness to pay a little more makes it more likely that I can afford to keep this app in the store and up to date. IPA keyboards don’t sell in large numbers...
