Do you want to see your device type itself?

Don't you just hate it when your device plops a whole bunch of text down at the same time?

What if I told you, there's an app/keyboard that lets your device TYPE ITSELF, LETTER BY LETTER!

I repeat. Letter. By. Letter.

What's even better, is that you can vary the typing speed to your liking too!

That app, my friend, is THIS APP.

Just copy a portion of text, and instead of hitting that bland, uninteresting Paste button, switch to the "Auto Typist" keyboard, and see your device type on its own.

---- AUTO TYPIST ----

- When simple pasting's just not your style

- For fans of the automaton

Intended for entertainment purposes. Who wouldn't want to see their devices type themselves once in a while, right?

What’s New

Version 1.5

- Increased stability
- "Force type" button for typing the next character immediately.
- Resuming typing

Entirely rewritten code (because I lost my old source code haha)

A bit disappointing

I expected it to auto send the message if you wanted it to and to auto type a message without having to click a button everytime. Though it does neither of those and that was the reason I had purchased the app... if you're expecting the same thing then do not purchase the app its a waste of money.

So... what was it you were expecting again? Auto-type without clicking a button every time? Auto-send?

How would you expect this app to function then? 
- The keyboard cannot be automatically called up without your consent; that is a limitation of the iOS ecosystem.
- If you want it to auto-type/auto-send and repeat until specified, this app would never be approved. It would be certainly be classified as a spam-bot, which is not the intention of it existing. This app is meant for light-hearted fun, seeing your device type itself, or even for spoofing in online Google Docs sessions or such to make it seem to other people as if you were actively online ;)

Unfortunately it doesn’t type very fast. The fastest that the app types is about 60 words per minute. It would be great it if could type twice as fast. Also I can’t leave it running alone. It makes me tap every time to rewrite the same phrase over and over.!
But functions without issues on iPhone XS Max.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, your fastest typing speed can be adjusted by opening the app itself and entering a higher number in the "Maximum keystrokes per second" field.

As for rewriting the same phrase over and over... I'm not quite sure how you're using this app, haha. Could you be a bit more specific on how you want it to function? A button to repeat the sentence you've copied by a specific number of times?

Great, with some bugs

Overall this is a great app/keyboard. Is it worth $2? No but it wont fail you if you choose to buy this. The only problem is it tends to crash the keyboard every so often. But overall, does as promised!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review, I'm wondering if you could explain when it tends to crash?
