~ BEST-IN-CLASS ERGONOMICS ~
Handy Keyboard separates the keyboard to the left and right sides, letting you hold your iPad comfortably while typing. No more contorting your hands to a cramped keyboard. Work longer, better, and more productively with exceptional ergonomics.
~ CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR HANDS ~
Not everyone has the same size hands, so why should everyone use the same size keyboard? Handy Keyboard lets you get the perfect hold on your iPad by letting you fully customize the height and placement of the keyboard. Handy Keyboard is thoughtfully built to prevent hand and muscle strain.
~ FAST & ACCURATE ~
Handy Keyboard learns and constantly adapts to your typing style, so your typing gets more and more accurate over time. Plus, type on your iPad faster than you ever thought possible with the built-in autocorrect.

Ratings and Reviews
With iOS 13, only option
This seems to be the only way to get a split keyboard now with iOS 13. I’d rather have this keyboard than not. That said it’s only so so. The auto correct is not good compared to the regular keyboard. Too early to tell, but I may end up liking swipe better. At .99 this would be a no brainier. At 4.99 it’s only for die hards that has be to have a split keyboard.
Very niche app. Only some people will want a split keyboard on their 12.9" iPad and I'm one of those people! I love it. Just wish there was a way for it to actually split the keyboard so I could see the content in the middle of the screen. Not sure if this an iOS limitation (most likely), but even if the background of the keyboard were translucent, it would make it even better. The lack of this feature is what took off the 5th star. Otherwise, it was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
Helps With 12.9"
Surprised this isn't a standard Apple thing on the 12.9. Helps a lot. My only gripes are the auto correct isn't nearly as good. I wish the keys would give some feedback that they were touched. It would also be nice if you could increase the distance or size of the keys. The error rate is a bit high for me. Still a lot more comfortable than the standard mode on a 12.9 ipad in portrait.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
