    Wonder if any one else has tried this keyboard app..?

    Pretty easy and tilts left or right. Or just straight.

    Incorporates a swipe keyboard as well.

    I can't see an advantage for myself since I hen peck with my index finger when I type a text message.

    I hear you on that! I do use my thumb one handed though. Are you one of the few Android guys that doesn't use swipe?

    Anyhow, Android released two days ago a similar off-centered keyboard in the App Store, although it's not fan titled like the MS one above.

    All helpful for those large phablets.

    Not quite as sexy, as sometimes is normal.

    I used Swipe on my Nokia N8 and it was OK. I haven't put it on any of my recent Android phones

    Swype on N8 was OK. Swype on Android is much better. That being said, with the Google's own gesture recognition, as well as SwiftKey and other keyboards available one has a plethora of choices.

    I loved this keyboard on the Lumia 735, so having it for iOS is awesome. This is one thing Microsoft got right.

    Ok. Nor do the .com nor .gov shortcuts.

    It has a purpose and easily switched out. Fast typing with the swipe function I found. Predictive text seems better too.

    It's a pretty nice keyboard. My only complaint is it does not support holding the symbol or caps key while sliding to the desired key. Your have to turn it on, then go for the symbol or letter you want. Back to SwiftKey for now.

    I think the key difference is the curved keyboard. Perhaps not useful for a 4" iPhone but for the larger screens.
    In that regard the cap issues are secondary.

    You mentioned in another thread shortcomings with swipe with ios. What were they?

    I definitely see the importance of shortcuts and missing them would be a sacrifice, Charlyee .

    Just never used the ios shortcuts.

    I'll switch between them. But for long emails even a few sentences long, I'm finding this new keyboard much faster and much more accurate than the stock one. And the real plus is the one handed ease. Due to the curvature in the keyboard.
