When Apple released iOS8 they also allowed opened up the keyboard to developer interpretation and for some reason people are sick of ducking auto-correct.
Tiny Hearts, the guys behind Wake and PocketZoo, are developing Next Keyboard. Focusing primarily on usability issues such as the obvious auto-correct, a more distinct shift key that turns the entire keyboard into capitals and a better editing cursor activated by swiping along the space bar. Along with those killer little details are individual key sounds and instant/predictive emojis. The keyboard looks to be a promising addition to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in particular considering its gigantic screen size, single-hand typing could now be a much easier task.
The Kickstarter campaign has already reach nearly 200% of its original goal, with more than 38 days to go.
