Type faster - without looking

Automatic language detection:
Type Nine suggests words from multiple languages at the same time. No need to switch keyboard to type in a different Language.

Type Nine is the first keyboard ever to combine a keypad layout with swiping. Typing by swiping is a seamless experience and once you've picked up the movements, you will type faster and more effortlessly than ever before.

If you're using VoiceOver, Type Nine will be a pleasent improvement to your daily typing.

Remembers your words:
If a word is not in the dictionary you can type it manually with ease, and Type Nine will remember it for you. Every time you write a word, Type Nine will adjust its behavior so that the most used word is suggested first.

Easy to follow tutorials:
Getting started with Type Nine is easy. Everything is put together in an intuitive manner, and if you want to start using all the efficient hidden gems, there are tutorials to explain how to do that.

Type Nine features a handfull of different themes to suite your mood or taste.

All the iOS emojis with easy access. Your most used smileys are easily accessed by a single swipe.

Delete so sweet:
The backspace button in Type Nine is nothing short of a miracle. By swiping left you delete an entire word, but by swiping slowly you can precision delete much better than simply holding down backspace. You can even undo what you deleted or cut it to a different position by swiping down on delete.

Moving the cursor:
No more cramps in your fingers trying to move the cursor to the correct position. Simply swipe left or right on space to move the cursor an entire word at a time, or swipe slowly to position precisely.

Resizing for big screens:
If you're using an iPhone 6 plus or an iPad, you can easily resize the keyboard to a better size for one-handed typing.

Supported languages:
Serbian latin
Serbian cyrillics
Scottish Gaelic

Pretty legit does what you like.

So far the app has been running pretty well just a couple of key features that should be included. When double spacing add the period. Add ability to flip what side the 123 emoji and backspace are on. Add ability to move thouse, I'd much rather have the backspace at the top right them next to the enter key. Add overlay to ignore input unless double tapped. That way you would have to double tap say emoji 123 back or enter etc.

Update. Looks like the app hasn't been treated in awhile such a shame.

Love the keyboard!

Purchased this after finding that I really had trouble typing on the stock keyboard....what a game-changer! I loved T9 on my old phones & this is even better & easier to use. Like the retro best & the themes; would like to have more color choices in the retro keyboard. When I had an issue, Rasmus was quick to get back to me. Would be nice to be able to delete "used" emojis & search for "new" ones. Other than the above, it's the best keyboard out there! 😉 Thanks Rasmus!

Still loving this keyboard & couldn't type without it. Typing is fast & efficient! Have suggested more colors & themes; still hoping. Would gladly pay a few extra $! 😉

Updated review: I was contacted by the developer with a pretty condescending response to my review. I still stand behind my initial review. The keyboard is glitchy, not including the word “I’m”. That was just an example of the many words the keyboard failed to recognize. They suggested I don’t use the swiping feature, which is the reason I downloaded their app. If you don’t want someone to use a feature in an app that isn’t ready after testing, don’t release it.

Original review: I grew up with Nokia phones so I missed using T9 and I was happy to come across this, until I started using it. IT'S SO GLITCHY. I couldn't swipe a simple sentence without having to backspace and search for the word several times. Why can't I type the word "I'm"? It kept inserting the word "In". So frustrating. This app is basically useless unless you like getting frustrated when you're trying to send a simple text.

Developer Response ,

Hi Lexi.
Thanks a lot for the feedback. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I realize that the word " I'm " is actually not a part of Type Nines english dictionary by default, and I've made sure that it's included in the next update. It's not a problem to add custom words yourself though, so I think that calling it out as glitchy is a gross misrepresentation. I think it's a pitty you bumped into that exact word missing, because I've spent a long time perfecting the keyboard, and if you like T9 from nokia, I really think you would enjoy Type Nine as well... Oh, and maybe don't use the swiping feature if it's not for you, tapping still works exactly like expected ;)
