FOUR times fewer typos and 100% privacy with the first keyboard made for your iPhone.

Featured on: TechCrunch, Wired, Houston Chronicle, Esquire, Evening Standard, Tech Radar, Mac Observer, App Advice

Current keyboards are based on the 140-year-old mechanical typewriter layout. Typewise is different. It’s the first keyboard that is specifically designed for smartphones. It’s revolutionary yet easy to use, and after a couple of messages you’ll love it.

A recent study with 37,000 participants showed that on current keyboards 1 out of 5 words contains typos. With Typewise you finally get rid of these ARRGGHH-moments. Thanks to the hexagon layout, keys are 70% larger and much easier to hit. It helps you to make four times fewer typos.

Swipe up to capitalize a letter, swipe left to delete or swipe right to restore. It's as simple as that.

Stop getting annoyed by wrong autocorrections or senseless predictions. Typewise learns what you type and helps you write that perfect sentence.

What you write is personal. That's why the keyboard does NOT require “full access” and none of your typing data is transmitted to the cloud.
To improve tutorial, game and settings in the app, we rely on basic and anonymous usage tracking, which can be turned off completely using the offline mode feature. The keyboard itself is not tracked at all.

Having to switch between different languages is cumbersome. With Typewise you can write in all your languages at once. Choose from 40+ languages and type in the accents you really need. Typewise supports:
- English (United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada)
- Afrikaans
- Albanian
- Basque
- Breton
- Catalan
- Croatian
- Czech
- Danish
- Dutch (Belgium, Netherlands)

Rogue backspace, poor hyphenation, lack of number pad

I love the hex layout and the swipe caps. I even like swipe left to backspace... until it goes rogue and continues after I am no longer touching the screen. I have found that switching to another keyboard will stop it, though I am fast enough to prevent large erasures in email or social media posts. Can a toggle be added to Settings to disable runaway backspace? As I said above, I love the hexes. Some inputs expect only numbers and other keyboards have a mode with a number pad layout. It would be nice to have that as an option. And my final issue is how hyphenated words don't provide suggestions. If I want to type brother-in-law, I have to type every character after hyphen. My grocer is H-E-B and I use the name in texts frequently. Typewise should know what comes after H- after a few times. It doesn't.

A few big flaws holding this back

Tucking four symbols used at various frequencies each with different gestures is a weird anti-pattern for simplicity. Vibration as a premium feature is a bummer and to me the only thing premium is worth. The TW logo to the left of the smart bar is not good at all and the premium undo feature is not a suitable substitute. Turning off the smart bar locks you out of being able to undo autocorrect. Words like i'm don't get capitalized and contractions like cant don't get an automatic apostrophe but the word "don't" does. The word i never gets autocapitalized. The word autocorrect, a word used multiple times inside the configuring interface, gets autocorrected to "a incorrect". The word autocorrected gets converted to "a uncorrected". There is only so much more customizability this needs in order to be perfect, and the allure of bigger, harder to mistype keys is not worth the compromises. How do i close this keyboard even?

Edit as a response to the developer:
I just want the logo to be a little bit smaller. It’s huge. And tapping above the screen doesn’t work sometimes like even editing this review. I still have major problems with the symbols layout and the lack of customizabilty. I still feel as if even after only the changes you’ve mentioned the premium price of the pro features still can’t justify the main selling point - bigger and harder to mistake buttons.

Developer Response ,

Hi sharkverse, thank you for your feedback! The logo serves as a menu butto to access some features like the tutorial or changing a language. We will take your feedback into consideration if we represent it in a form different from the logo. We are working on an update to fix the capitalization issues and wil release it soon. You can close the keyboard by tapping on the screen above the keyboard. Hope this helps! Cheers, your Typewise Team

So different! But...

Its so cool to have a new keyboard style, who would dare venture outside of qwerty? I love the concept, but the placements of the keys have me reaching further up and down then ever, now i have 5 rows of letters. I find it harder to hop up and down (as you will need to do with this app) then left and right. Also, the number keys are never going to be used in such an awkward format? Why add the 4 at the end of the row after 123? It’s a totally unnecessary pattern change, kind of like revising the English language from the word “yes” to “yeshk”. But this is where the fun part is of the whole Typewise language, making typing a new thing like driving stick shift for the first time. The K definitely needs to be swapped with the L! Haptic feed back is a little generic as well, where as using the phones native keyboard, there’s a beautiful tapping vibration, here, the vibration is too long. The range in adjusting the strength is wayyyy to large. Just light, med, and strong would do I think.

I use this for fun and support for adventurers like Typewise! But in a serious conversation or business email, QWERTY is king. They should have a race from a fast texter vs a fast Typewiser. That would be the showcase of this product. BATTLE ROYALE!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. 😇 Studies have proven that 1 of 4 words typed with QWERTY on smartphones contain typos. A reason for that is that there is a lot of wasted space between the keys. That's why we developed 70% larger honeycomb keys that are easier to hit. 😊 For number rows, it is something that has been suggested already on the platform.
