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

    • Tutorial
    • Originality
    • Challenging
    • 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.

    5 for innovation. 1 for usefulness on my device. The seems like a good alternative over the matrix keyboard, not really over querty and especially not over swype.

    Really good idea but the learning curve is too long and I'm not convinced that the average person would find this a better substitute for their qwerty keyboard as it takes too long and too much thought to type

    Relearn everything you know, but it gets quicker surprising easily. Trouble doing capital F tho, and the auto—complete is a bit dim. But I am going to persevere.

    Love the idea although it's a bit difficult to use. And it would be great if it could support greek as well.

    Rubbish. Gestures are far too hit and miss to be usable.
