Write English using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in any text app!
“Straightforward, well-organized, and easy to use. Thank you!” – user tlaney.
This app provides an English IPA keyboard that can be installed for use anywhere on your iPhone or iPad. Installation instructions are included.
The keyboard lets you type the IPA characters that are necessary to fully represent the pronunciation of English, including regional variations. Keyboard layouts are separately optimized for iPhone (three layers) and iPad (two layers).
IPA is used in many parts of the world to teach or document the pronunciation of English and other languages.
The keyboard and iOS are designed to protect your privacy: The keyboard can send text you type only to the app within which it is used; nowhere else. It does not access any other of your data.
Support new iPhone and iPad models introduced in fall 2018.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app and great developer!
The app is very useful for my needs. Initially, I had a bit of a problem getting the app to work, but that was resolved quickly. The developer is very helpful and quick to respond! The app costed a little more than I initially hoped for, but with this kind of support, it is well worth the cost. 👍🏻
Great app! Just what I was looking for, though 3.99$ is a bit expensive, I have to say. I wish if it stays in App store and won’t be deleted or perished for any reason.

Thank you! Your willingness to pay a little more makes it more likely that I can afford to keep this app in the store and up to date. IPA keyboards don’t sell in large numbers...
Works great but could use some more symbols.
This keyboard works great but is missing the combining breve symbol unicode #774 . This is a critical symbol to represent English diphthongs. If I’m missing where it is, please contact me.
Indeed, the keyboard does include the inverted #815 [032F] diacritic symbol. This is the symbol for “non-syllabic". For my usage, as an instructor of speech for actors, the above the letter breve seems more accurate and is more common in usage (at least for American and English speech and voice teachers).

The requested character and several others were added in version 1.3 of the app.
