When it comes to third-party keyboard apps for our smartphones, there are so many to choose from. For the most part, a lot of them are laid out the same in the familiar QWERTY format that the majority of us are familiar with, but just because it’s familiar doesn’t mean that it’s the best.
If you think that the keyboard layout could do with some changes and improvements, then Typewise might be the keyboard for you. The developers have recently announced the version 3.0 update to the keyboard that brings with it a ton of new features and improvements over its predecessors.
Typewise was designed to help improve the typing experience on mobile devices, and with version 3.0, the developers have introduced all-new autocorrection technology, thanks to support from the Swiss Agency for Innovation, Innosuisse, which is supposed to help speed up typing as it means less time going back to correct your mistakes.
This was achieved by studying the typing habits from 37,000 people and finding what works and what doesn’t. It also utilizes AI which runs natively on your phone and doesn’t not require a connection to a remote server, meaning that all your data will be kept locally and the developers will not have access to it.
Admittedly Typewise does take some getting used to due to the different layout configuration compared to more traditional keyboards, but if you’re looking for something different and want to potentially improve on your typing experience, it might be worth a try. Typewise is available for both Android and iOS, and the version 3.0 update is expected to be released in the early part of 2021.
