My iPhone 4 Keyboard Sucks !!!

I don’t know about you folks but I have never been particularly good or quick using my iPhones built-in keyboard. I have often looked with envy upon people on trains and buses tapping away with their thumbs to their hearts content.


Unfortunately my broad fingers are either too big or I am just not dexterous enough. Not only that but ever since I acquired my iPhone I absolutely abhor the predictive text feature and I spend as much time correcting text as creating it.


I fully accept that many of you out there will disagree but hopefully many out there will also relate to my sentiment


Having recently purchased an android tablet I came across a brilliant app called Swift keyboard, and heartily recommend it if you have an android device and I can now type away to my hearts content with both my thumbs using that app and device.


   This caused me to search for a similar app for my iPhone and for the      princely sum of under two dollars I came across an app called Smart Keyboard which I would also recommend. Just give you a flavour I have done a very short video below and why not check it out in the  iTunes store…………….



PS While designed for iPhone  not iPad I still use it on my iPad

      I got someone to show me how to switch off predictive text because it drove me mad. And I have tiny fingers but they’re still too big for the iPhone keypad. It sucks for typing! I was envying someone on a Blackberry thumb tapping only today as I tapped with my index finger…

        Jo , I do not like predicative text either . But I find the smart keyboard easy to use. I am delighted to see you back on working on the go. Take care Rosemary

      I’m not really a fan of the onscreen keyboard on my android either. In fact I hated trying to type on the screen and deeply missed my palm Treo’s keyword which was similar to some of the blackberries with slightly raised buttons. For me the answer was in a “swype” style keyboard (in my case, Slide IT keyboard) which allows me to drag my finger quickly across the letters. Love, love love it and always feel lost without it! I wonder if the iphones have any similar offerings. Do you know?

        Hi Kim, many thanks for your very useful comment. I mostly use my iPad on the go but Michael uses our android tablet we recently bought and he has used swiftkey tablet X with much praise. The slide it app looks compelling from their you Tube video and we will certainly be trying it out. It is not available from the iTunes store but the slide it website seems to indicate that they are working hard to get it approved for the IOS system. Many thanks for this useful information
