OftenType for iOS8 - Custom Quick Keys Help Avoid Repeated Typing

February 23, 2015 in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] Kyiv, Ukraine - Entrepreneur and independent developer Artem Pochepetskyi is proud to announce the release of OftenType 1.0.1, an update to his keyboard application for iOS8. Developed by a small group of independent developers, OftenType allows anyone to expand their default keyboard with custom quick keys for frequently used texts. To avoid repetitive typing, users can easily setup special keys for e-mail, surname, address and more.

"Unlike alternative custom keyboard players that came from Android, from the start we considered iOS as our main environment and had done our best to enhance native iOS feeling for users of our extension. We think that typing experience in the iPhone is great and there is no need to replace the native keyboard," said Artem Pochepetsky, OftenType Founder. "But there are some ways to expand it and make a little better. OftenType can surely do this. The idea came up a year ago when I was researching apps. After signing in tones of apps I wished there was one button to insert e-mail. No news on 3rd party keyboards were available at that time. Then I went deeper in the topic and was sure that custom keyboards in iOS should be available to 8th or 9th update. I decided to take the risk investing my time and money in the development. And in Spring 2014 Apple announced keyboard extensions in iOS newest update."

The first release offers such features: unlimited key quantity; extensions to store up to 4 snippets in one key, secure data stored only on user's device, with a clear easy-to-use iOS8-style interface. Version 1.0.1 introduces new visual improvements and fixes minor bugs.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 8.1 or later
* 8.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
OftenType 1.0.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.
