"When it comes to keyboards, size matters"

Reviewed by / Jul 01, 2014

A gesture-based touchscreen keyboard with huge keys

Too many misprints? That's touchscreen keyboards' main catch. The guys at Microth have come up with a simple solution to solve that: bigger keys. KeyZag Keyboard is the outcome. A keyboard which makes the most of the available space by favoring the use of touchscreen gestures.

That's the trick: KeyZag takes out some keys from the main layout to make bigger those that matter the most (letters). Those missing keys aren't "tapped" but swiped. Swipe right to "press" the space bar, swipe left to backspace. Swipe up to use capital letters, swipe down letters to input a number. Doesn't it sound easy? It is. You'll get the hang of it in a jiffy.

However, the main feature of Keyzag keyboard is not just removing space and delete but its adaptability to any size and position on screen preserving the shape of keys and distance between them. That feature makes KeyZag a unique keyboard. It has a characteristic zigzag layout.

Thus, layout, gestures and adaptibility guarantee faster and more accurate typing.

In addition, KeyZag features 5 different themes, 4 different layout (geometry) and 4 alphabets. Emojis are supported as well as auto-capitalization, haptic feedback and sound effects on click.

A simple yet innovative keyboard for those who had serious misprinting issues.

KeyZag is a flexible keyboard you can interactively place anywhere on screen and scale to any size.

"If you have not yet found the right keyboard for you, try KeyZag" -

KeyZag solves screen keyboard problems by providing the high level of input comfort for both landscape and portrait orientations, symbols of desired size, and advanced recognition of input.

KeyZag is a revolutionary "keyless" keyboard. It is based on an advanced, patent pending technology of optimal circle packing within a container of given shape.

KeyZag is an interactively adjustable keyboard. It provides unique flexible zigzag arrangements of symbols, maintaining the familiar QWERTY layout, symbol shapes and the same key spreading distances regardless of device orientation and size of a keyboard.

KeyZag supports languages based on Latin, Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew and Hindi alphabets. It also support full
set of Emoji emoticons.

KeyZag utilizes an advanced method of input recognition. Depending on input statistics, it adjusts sensitivity of individual symbols and reduces the number of misprints.

KeyZag supports simple gestures for input of controls, symbols and capital letters without switching layouts.

Large buttons of the KeyZag keyboard are eminently suitable for kids and people with low vision and motoric problems.

KeyZag keeps improving. We plan to add many new features soon and would appreciate your comments and suggestions. Please visit our website for tips, forum, support and much more: It is recommended that you enable auto-update on Google Play so you always have the latest version of KeyZag.

    I can't belive I didn't find this earlier. Great for one handed thumb-typing in portrait mode, very quick two handed typing in both portrait and landscape. Those who type alot shouldn't miss this.

    I really like this app great for tablets and not bad on phones I don't find learning curb that steep takes a little time get used to the lack of a space bar however this leaves more room for letters.
