When Apple revealed that it would be allowing third-party keyboards on the iPhone and iPad thanks to the arrival of iOS 8, everyone got really delighted at the prospect of having the ability to make use of popular Android keyboards like SwiftKey, but what had not been really imagined was the increase of keyboards that do more than permit users to type characters on a screen. Keyboards began to spring up that brought with them GIFs and more, making the iOS keyboard less of a keyboard at all.
One fresh example of that is ReBoard, a keyboard that takes the basic concept of text-based input and adds miniature app-like functions to it. The keyboard can act like a typical keyboard, with the normal variety of characters available. Users can swipe up on the delete essential to remove complete words rather than individual characters, and they can swipe throughout the Spacebar to move the cursor through words, however that’s not truly exactly what makes ReBoard stand out from the crowd.
Where things start to get interesting is when a user presses the brand-new Command icon that lives alongside where the predictive text appears, since that opens the door to capabilities such as including things to the calendar, translating gotten in text, sharing Dropbox links as well as searching YouTube for the link to that video you wished to share. There is even Wikipedia assistance as well as an image search feature that puts a world of pictures at your fingertips.
ReBoard sadly cannot tie into the stock iOS dictionary, so the actual keyboard isn’t all that great thanks to bad autocorrection, however if you are going to utilize ReBoard for its other features, then it will certainly deserve the $ 1.99 its designer is asking for, with an extra $ 0.99 in-app purchase needed for each style you desire to install. You obviously do not require to purchase any of those optional themes, however the option is there should the personalization bug occur to bite you.
ReBoard is offered to download from the App Store today.
