"The ultimate keyboard"

Smart keyboards have been one of the most important innovations for smartphones and a long road has been left behind since T9. They're so important that our smartphone user experience heavily depends on what keyboard are we currently using.

iKnowU gathers all the improvements dripped by its competitors in the past and adds several from its own harvest. Therefore, predictive text has been extended from words to whole sentences, allows left handed gesturing and even a few international keyboards such as French AZERTY. It'd would be great if it came with alternative alphabets (Cyrillic, Arabic, Korean, etc...), but perhaps we are asking for too much to an app that can be considered the best keyboard for Android so far.

Vanity options have also been taken into account and there are color skins and themes to choose among and you can sync this app across all your devices, so what has been learnt here can be applied there. Multi-dictionary might not seem a great deal in US, but once you cross the border, not to mention flying over across the pond, it's the most useful feature ever.

Lastly, as nobody wants to see their texts in a "self correct jokes" website, this app combines autocorrection with a re-correct option. Whatever it takes to avoid any unneeded embarrassment.

This complete version allows unlimited use. Absolutely recommendable.
