International Phonetic Alphabet in your email, tweet or Facebook post! IPAChartApp gives you an International Phonetic Alphabet keyboard you can use on any iOS app. IPAChartBoard puts the seven official IPA charts at your fingertips. Phonetic detail was never so easy!

Like other iOS third-party keyboards, this IPA keyboard comes to your device in a carrying app, in this case IPAChartApp. Once you've installed IPAChartApp on your device, you install the keyboard through System Settings. (The app will remind you how to do this.) Then IPAChartBoard keyboard is available for use with any app on your device. From your default system keyboard, you switch to the IPAChartBoard by tapping the "globe" key, as you would to use any other system keyboard.

Excellent, but I'm not fond of this update.

I've really enjoyed using this app and it's keyboard, and I understand what inspired the new keyboard layout, but I very much prefer the older keyboard.

While somewhat clunky, it was overall a much better layout to have the keyboard as the IPA chart. I found it a lot easier to use as well as it helping me familiarize myself with the chart itself.

Great app and I love what it does, but currently my experience is a bit clunkier.

iphone GUI is too small

The layout of the keyboard match's the official IPA charts, which is smart and intuitive, but you have to scroll for a while to find what you are looking for, which is less than ideal. The charts should be reduced in size so they fit onto the allotted space of the keyboard. This might require smaller characters to compensate and it would necessitate the delabling of the characters, but it would improve the ease of use of the app enormously.

Love it, but..

Love this app, but WHERE is the alveolar flap R? Other than that, its the best ipa I've come across!
