Keypurr uses an innovative layout with BIG keys and accurate text prediction to make onscreen typing with Android devices fast and easy.


- All-in-one compact QWERTY layout allows letters, numbers, and symbols to be accessed in one gesture

- BIG keys: almost twice as big as the average onscreen qwerty layout. Significantly improved accuracy, effortless one-handed typing

- Comprehensive dictionary designed for real-world use. Includes myriad words not recognized by other onscreen keyboard apps: abbreviations, acronyms, and words borrowed from other languages

- 12 user-definable function keys can be programmed to insert often-typed words, email addresses, a date/time stamp, or any other text

- Custom Autext: define specific key sequence to automatically expand into specific words/phrases

- Arrow keys for easy cursor movement

-Shift lock keys: tap one of these then the desired key instead of flicking

-Left Side/Right Side Mode: tap the side of the key where your letter sits instead of flicking

Keypurr is the must have software keyboard for Android devices with small screens!


“It has nice large keys that really do make it a breeze to use.” –AndroidGuys

“The big question is whether Keypurr is faster than Swype and Swiftkey. We believe so.“ -Planet Android

“The prediction works very well, and the larger keyboards do help with accuracy... Keypurr has a feature that I wish all on-screen keyboards provide, programmable function keys.” -ThinkMobile

    Very smart keyboard. Small footprint. Figures out what you're typing. Solved my problem of typing on smartwatch!

    I am compelled to review within 30 seconds of installing. My screen is tiny and i think i developed tendon inflamation from chatting( lot!) with my girls. This felt like neurofen for my fingers. Shame the developer lost interest two years ago.

    Would've given higher rating otherwise. Closest thing to my old HTC keyboard.
