[prMac.com] Beer Sheva, Israel - Independent developer Tal Shumski today is pleased to announce the official launch of Keyboard 2, his new application for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The utility is already proving immensely popular. Keyboard 2 provides a full screen keyboard with double sized buttons to facilitate sending text messages and other communications.
The keyboard features an ABC and numeric layout, complete with common punctuation marks on the main keyboard. Users can customize configurations for ease of use. Numbers are presented in a typical keyboard layout that includes all the accompanying special characters. The keyboard is semi-transparent and content is displayed behind the buttons. Users can adjust the level of the keyboard's transparency, text color, font size and button color to accommodate a variety of personal preferences.
Keyboard 2 allows users to type in content before posting to a variety of platforms. After content is entered, user can post to their Facebook account, send SMS and email messages and Google It. Users can copy to the clipboard and use it anywhere else. The application is also compatible with third party apps. Keyboard 2 contains a multi-tasking feature, allowing users to easily switch between apps and utilize Super Keyboard for Twitter, Awesome Notes, TO-DO and similar functions.
With Keyboard 2, there's no need to put off responding to messages or posting on social media sites due to a small keyboard. The application allows users to respond and post on the spot without the frustration of using a small keyboard. Some messages deserve immediate attention and can't wait until the user is in front of a computer with a large keyboard. The utility provides an easy way for users to take care of important business in a timely manner.
The application grew out of a combination of the developer's personal need and a chance encounter on a train. The engineering student was searching for ways to fund his college tuition. While riding the train, Shumski observed a man with rather large fingers become angry over the size of the keyboard on his iPhone. The man was having difficulty typing a simple message through a combination of large fingers and the iPhone's small keyboard. Shumski immediately saw the advantage in a keyboard app to remedy the situation and set about developing Keyboard 2.
The new app provides an easy and convenient means of responding to messages and posting online without the need to wait for access to a computer. Keyboard 2 offers a large keyboard format that includes the alphabet and numerical keys that makes it easy to conduct business, respond to communications and interact online.
