It’ll be interesting to see if it lives up to its claims.

Per MacRumors, NinType, created by app developer Yose Widjaja, has surfaced on the App Store. The program, which focuses on dual thumb use, incorporates a combination of taps and swipes to write words and insert punctuation quickly.

The NinType typing experience is significantly different from the standard iOS typing experience, so it does take some time to adjust to the two-handed swipe and tap input. Users are advised to use the keyboard as a standard keyboard to begin with, inserting swipe-based words gradually to adjust to the difference.

NinType has a built-in game-like tutorial that’s designed to walk users through all of the app’s features, and it is deeply customizable with a top bar that can be arranged to a user’s liking, different visual effects, extensive shortcut options, and settings for nearly every aspect of the keyboard. There are a number of handy gestures in NinType, including a swipe on the spacebar to move the cursor, a swipe on the backspace key to quickly delete words, edge slides for inserting punctuation, and flick to autocomplete. NinType does not require users to enable full access.




NinType also includes features like a built-in calculator, support for multiple languages, a tool for counting words typed per minute, and a “word transformer” mode for stylizing the words that you type.

NinType requires iOS 8.0 or later to run and is available for both the iPhone and the iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store for US$4.99.
