    ETAOI Keyboard is an original way to input based on ETAOI (internationally most used letters)

    • Too much learning curve
    • Screentouch response should be enhanced

    "The weird keyboard"

    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.

    I don't blame the developer for that btw it's just inevitable. the only thing I can see this being useful for is a smartwatch, provided it's a samsung. Otherwise, I don't think it's worth it. With the cheatsheet this is using the same amount of space onscreen as the keyboard i've been using. It could really benefit from a "double—tap for punctuation" option too.

    After quite an adjustment period (5-months) you can get used to using this keyboard and it takes up way less real-estate on the screen. There only two things this keyboard needs so I don't have to keep switching between keyboards. 1. Emoji: if they were to put a set of pages inside of the cheat sheet menu with Emojis on it, then I wouldn't have to keep switching back to Gboard. 2. Google Voice Shortcut: I use quite a bit in situations where typing would be dangerous or when I don't know how to spell a word.

    The idea may be good in theory, but in practice it has lots of problems. * Steep learning curve * No QWERTY * Lots of finger travel required * That function bar takes more space than keyboard itself * Function keys are in odd places (backspace is on the left, space on the right...) For a similar idea but much better experience I would recommend Minuum.

    Cheat sheet doesn't work. Punctuation and special characters are impossible to locate. I look forward to the finished product
