10-finger typing on the iPad: Customize your keyboard by a simultaneous multi-touch adaptation or a stored favorite layout.


TypeWay supports 10-finger typing with automatic adaptation of the key configuration.
It adapts to individual hands and typing habits (only on iPad, in landscape mode).
You can „Save“ and „Restore“ a configuration as a favorite.
„Freeze“ fixes the actual configuration.
„Save“ / „Restore“ and „Freeze“ your personalized keyboard.

For beginners we recommend a fixed configuration („Freeze“),
or the slow adaptation in TypeWay’s „Settings“.

The keyboard layout offers English and German with several international accents.
iOS features are integrated, like cut, copy & paste …
TypeWay provides fast typing, e.g. for protocols,
lesson scripts, interviews, emails, and basic text editing.

Activate the separate app by tapping on the TypeWay icon.
„New” opens a new text file. You can „Edit” and „Rename” the text notes.
For text export, the share button offers e.g. Mail, Twitter, Print, Pages ...

For use in various iPad applications, you can activate TypeWay in iPad’s settings:
> „General" > „Keyboard" > „Keyboards“ > „Add New Keyboard“ > „TypeWay"

„Full Access“ can be activated or deactivated in the iPad settings.

Doesn’t capitalize, auto-correct

Auto-correct can come with a frozen keyboard setting but what’s wrong with capitalizing after a period, aka ”full stop”? I don’t understand that, why there’s no setting for language. For example, an English setting would capitalize the following: I, English, German, England, a choice for United, States, and so forth.

Makes Typing on the iPad a Breeze

Wherever I am, odds are I am typing something. Whether its an email, a text or just a quick note I am most likely using my iPad to do it. TypeWay has worked wonders by learning my fingering pattern and making it much easier to type. If you're like me, then your time is valuable and the less time it takes for you to type something - the better. I highly recommend giving this app a try. It will save you loads of time and make typing more efficient. Great value at only $0.99!

Give it a try!

Typeway is a pretty cool app. If your like me and take a ton of notes and write long emails from your ipad then you should try this app out. It will take a few minutes to get used to but the app will adjust the keys to your typing patterns. One cool new feature is that you can freeze the keys once you find a comfortable key adjustment that you like . Give it a try!
