- Too much learning curve
- Screentouch response should be enhanced
First off, we want you to know that this isn't an easy keyboard to handle, at least not in the beginning. Actually, it requires power of will, otherwise you'll drop it in the middle of the learning curve. Those who achieved it say that it's a really fast-typing keyboard. I guess I'm a conservative in this regard, but I'll stay on QWERTY.
Anyway, it's always nice discovering new keyboards with original input system. ETAOI Keyboard is made up by just 5 colored keys. Its original input system allows you to input letters, numbers, punctuation and even emojis by sliding right/left, up/down. No one can discuss that this is a native mobile keyboard. The only catch lies on most of the users are use to QWERTY or similar keyboards and are reluctant to change. This is for the bravest.
There's both a free demo version (with some punctuation and other perfomance restriction) and a paid one ($1.99). Although we encourage everyone to give it a go and accept the challenge, we cannot rate it as well as others because it doesn't makes users' life easier, not in the beginning at least. And that's matters. What's more, screentouch response should be enhanced, we had some mistypings.
DESIGNED FOR TOUCHSCREENS
ETAOI takes only a fraction of your phone's display. The keys are large and easy to reach. It can be used with just your thumb.
Letters has been grouped based on the familiar, alphabet layout. The most common ones are typed using single taps. Others: using slides between two or more keys.
Which letters to tap? All underlined characters.
How to know which way to slide? Find the key with a letter you want to type. Touch it. The keyboard will show you where to next!*
Results: intuitive, easy to follow characters’ order. Efficient input. Less typing errors.
*Assistive mode only (slide up the yellow key)
Use slides to type characters other than letters and numbers – no need to switch between different modes.
Type national characters. Languages currently supported include: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish.
Edit text and issue commands: move between text input fields, highlight, copy and paste, even control your phone's ringing mode!

Thanks for app! I will buy with Russian alphabet!
I like that Etaoi takes up such little space on my 7" Samsung tablet. The five, visually different touch tiles make it easy to mentally group which letters are on them (they are printed there, of course, but when you get going, you can sort of judge by co
1. Installed 2. Set etaoi as input method 3. Doesnt launch on input text 4 WTF am I doing wrong? 1 point cause it does not run Htc Wildfire
My writing on etaoi is geting much better, thinking to get full version.
but the demo is pretty limited with punctuation. Would like a full version with a limited time vs. limited version with unlimited time.
