A complete International Phonetic Alphabet (including all sounds and diacritics) keyboard which CAN BE USED IN OTHER APPS.

If you are a linguist, actor, presenter, public speaker or simply learn a foreign language, you often have to deal with phonetic transcription to note down the pronunciations of words and phrases.

Use the app to enter a transcription of a piece of text and share it with friends or colleagues or send it to Evernote.

From now on, you are able to start use your device for transcription purposes.

Symbol set:
The keyboard contains a complete set of symbols from the IPA chart.
If there are any missing IPA chart symbols, please contact us via e-mail and we will add them as soon as possible.

Awesome but weird keyboard layout & missing symbols

Just why? Are the keys SO big? And you're also missing some symbols.

Works well, good layout, no technical problems

Doesn’t work very well as an everyday keyboard—the layout’s just too awkward—but it’s extremely convenient and works well any time I need to use IPA. Most of the character positions are quite logical to me and are usually in the first or second place I look. (I don’t use it frequently enough to have them all memorized.)

I also have never experienced crashes or technical problems with it, which is very nice.

Definitely recommended from me!

Neat solution for whoever needs to write IPA symbols

Nothing fancy, but it does what it says it does. Super useful especially if you instruct phonetics or related disciplines, and use your iPad to make, let's say, a ppt material. Has no problem with inputting IPA symbols in a way that, at least for me, is consistent with my intuition. Also has a friendly customer service.
