TypeWay iPad Keyboard Adapts To Fit Your Hands Perfectly

Illustration for article titled TypeWay iPad Keyboard Adapts To Fit Your Hands Perfectly

The limitations of typing on a touchscreen hinder how effective tablets can be as productivity tools. There is hope, though, at least for iPad users. This TypeWay keyboard supposedly makes things easier, by adapting the key layout for each user.

Like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park, the TypeWay replacement keyboard learns and remembers, automatically adjusting the layout and placement of keys depending on your typing style, skill level, or habits. It's basically the first ergonomic on-screen keyboard that can still lead to repetitive stress injuries.

If you happen to find a layout that works particularly well for you, you can freeze the keys' positions at any time, or save a specific layout for later use if you still want to experiment. At $6 it isn't the cheapest iPad app in the App Store, but if it succeeds in making the iPad's keyboard useful for long-form typing, consider it a cheaper alternative to an external wireless keyboard.

I can not, nor have I met anyone who can, type effectively and quickly with two hands on an ipad like they would a keyboard. I'm usually holding it and use my thumbs relatively quickly... probably get about 20 wpm. :P I can sort of do it with two hands, but it jsut means i have to go find somewhere to set it... because placing it in my lap isn't very level or sturdy, as i'm typically lounging on the couch when using the ipad.
