Shortcuts Keyboard is a keyboard that allows you to add text based shortcuts to use in your favorite apps. It's great for quickly sharing an address of the party you're going to, your email address, and so much more!
– Add your own text-based shortcuts
– Works in your other apps such as Messages, email, and facebook messenger!
Create shortcuts for quick access to sharing your email address, directions to your house, helpful information, or quick status updates such as, "Hey, I'm on my way, I'll be there soon!" or "There's a party tonight at 1 infinite loop around 7pm, think you can make it?"
Hosting an event? Share basic information such as the buzzer code, wifi password, and directions with one tap!

Don’t be worried about Full Access
Just wanted to write an update about the keyboard and full access. The keyboard can not access anything you type into other applications or using other keyboards. It’s required to be able to create custom shortcuts. It cannot, will not, and has not ever shared any shortcuts with anything outside of the device. It needs full access to store the shortcuts in the container app’s database, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to create custom shortcuts. See the help section in the app if you’re curious about this. The message Apple shows is scary, but it’s impossible for this particular keyboard to share data you type because it’s only able to create shortcuts.
No brainer, super easy
Now that I have this massive iPhone I hate texting, I usually say the same things anyway. This makes it super easy for me to send out messages fast and spend more time doing what I need to do. I'd also liken it to when your computer already knows your passwords and credit card numbers, makes writing those things like my address super fast.
I love this keyboard!
What a great app! I've been looking for a customizable keyboard that does just exactly what Shortcuts Keyboard does. So many times I have found myself retyping the same things over and over.
But not any more.
Now just one tap will insert a commonly used and defined by me word, phrase, or a whole page of text into the document I'm working on.
And I love it that the entries can be color coded so I can group them by categories.
