Minuum Keyboard Free + Emoji
by: Whirlscape • 20.2K
NOTE: This is a free 30-days trial for Minuum Keyboard.
Minuum puts upside down what you know about touchscreen keyboards. It introduces an innovative typing system which claims to be more mobile native. Although you can always switch to the traditional QWERTY layout, Minuum features a keyboard with all its letters on a single row.
The main difference doesn't lie on how to type - which is quite similar to traditional touchscreen keyboards - but on its correction and prediction engine. You can be fast without worrying about precision: the corrector will figure out what you wanted to say. In addition, it'll learn from your typing patterns.
Tap the letter, swipe from left to right to return and from right to left to space. If you want to input a number or a symbol, long-press the letter below. Pretty cool, huh?
There's more. Minuum is fully customizable: from look & feel to language & layout, you can tweak keyboard's appearance and performance at your whim.
Minuum is available in 6 major languages. Although developers say more languages are coming soon, they are still running behind competitors at this point.
Regardless, if you want to improve your typing speed and accuracy, Minuum is a worth a shot.

ABOUT OUR NAME
Some people call us “Minum” or the “Minimum” keyboard but an easy way to remember the Whirlscape Minuum Keyboard is to think of a continuum of letters taking up minimal space.
