Nintype, as used by over 150k people!
Transform your iPhone or iPad into a highly productive device where you can actually type relatively quickly with it - so writing emails, reports and articles are much nicer, because you can type faster on the iPad/iPhone than most people can on a desktop keyboard!

Ratings and Reviews
Why doesn't this work better?
UPDATED UPDATE: This developer proves that his feature-rich approach to inputting text is brilliant. But Nintype still fails to properly interpret many common words. (This technology, pioneered by IBM and eventually migrated to iOS in the long-discontinued Shapewriter, should have been perfected by now!)
UPDATED REVIEW... Very pleased to see this remarkable keyboard finally updated! It now seems more accurate, perhaps even much more accurate! But I must refresh my memory to recall all of its many features! Thanks to the developer for returning to fix his creation.
This is one of those apps that you are thrilled to discover, yet are constantly frustrated by it. Every keyboard should have at least a fraction of its clever features. But they don't. Unfortunately, Nintype is unable to fulfill its most basic requirement. After many trials, it seems unable to reliably interpret gesture text-entry, even after giving it time to train itself. A shame!
Finally works without constant crashing!
This poor app and developer has had issues with this app. It’s kinda awesome in what it does, but it froze constantly, pushing ppl away from it - this wasn’t because the developer was a poor one, apple has issues that they couldn’t figure out with third party keyboards.
I’m not going to lie - when you download this app, its honestly frustrating as hell because of the learning curve and making it learn how you type, but after a while it is much better and your speed will increase considerably. I bought this a long time ago, so I’m not sure of the current cost, but the one draw back I think I can think of is that you others using your phone with struggle hardcore with using it because it is such a specialized keyboard. Because of this, I still keep my ios keyboard installed so that if somebody else is typing for me they can.
Now if apple would allow for the third party apps to use Siri when you truly need to speak your text, I’d love this even more than I already do.
For the user that was having trouble typing when the dictionary didn’t have a word, you enable peck mode and then favorite it by force pressing on the word. When you do this, it adds it for the future and you’re good to go for the next time.
Final thing is to make sure you back up your words semi regularly because you don’t accidentally to lose all your stuff - what I do is put my stuff in a note and save it in icloud.
Long time user
Been using this since it first came out. It’s an off and on off again relationship honestly. Before I stopped using the keyboard because of the constant crashes and memory leaks associated with such an advanced keyboard. But it’s been well worth it. Texting and even doing essays with this style of keyboard is amazing and satisfying. It’s realist gratifying once you get the swing of things.
Newest update has made Nintype more stable than ever with almost no crashes ever. I can’t even remember the last time the keyboard would crash at all.
Now the only complaint and a very minute one at that, is that the little mini game that comes with nintype is almost unplayable. It’s very glitchy and holding the spacebar to charge the bump to the next word doesn’t really work correctly anymore.
Ultimately though that’s really a dumb and minor issue to have, but it’s a good example of how great this keyboard truly is. If this is the only issue now then it just shows how awesome nintype has become. Texting, and writing notes on your phone especially in landscape mode is a breeze and it’s amazing truly how fast you can eventually type with this keyboard. Not to mention the haptic feedback and themes you can customize and apply just adds even more content to an already amazing keyboard. Seriously a good job. Can’t ever go back to a regular touch keyboard again.
