Big keyboard for better typing
Designed for iPad
Rhomboard is a keyboard based one a simple principle: larger keys are just plain better.
Using rhombic shaped keys, Rhomboard keyboard packs more keys and bigger keys than a traditional rectangular keyboard to deliver a typing experience which is more fluid and more consistent.
With Rhomboard keyboard you can type faster and more accurately.
- big keys!
- rhombic keys
- auto-correct with or without prediction (and yes it can be turn off), with spelling and composition rules for 50000+ words
- resizable, from very big to very small
- themes, change color and style

Large keys means less mistake while typing, pure and simple. Rhomboard keyboard diamond shaped keys are 20% larger than keys on a typical keyboard.
The keys are also perfectly aligned both vertically and horizontally. This is important when typing because with touch keyboards the finger inevitably hide the key you want to type. With Rhomboard keyboard diamond alignment, you can accurately guide your finger using the rows and columns.
Finally, keys have a long touch effect so your eyes can see which key you just typed while your finger is moving to the next key.

And for those extra symbols that you are always looking for, like currencies, Rhomboard presents them all in one logically organized layout. No more layout jumping to find the #, & or @ characters.

Ratings and Reviews
It was okay but can't learn words.
I could not find a way to add words to its dictionary. It turned Google to boogie thirty times and that was it for me.
Needs a little work
At first glance I really liked the idea but unfortunately it doesn't feel natural typing with this layout. The up/down, zigzag motion would take time and patience to become accustomed.
I'm running into a problem where the right side of the keyboard is cut off (number 8 all the way down through the return key). It appears to happen ONLY with older 32 bit apps but it's worth noting.
Autocorrect has frustrating glitches despite double clicking the space bar to ignore. Sometimes it adds an unwanted character or refuses to leave a word as-is. These problems are more frequent when you go back later to rewrite something. It also has more trouble when symbols are used.
The shortcuts and features offered by this keyboard are very useful! I wish it had an option for square keys and played nice with my other apps :)
iPhone 6s+, 10.1.1
