HERO One-handed Keyboard

By Corey Stone LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Not enough hours in the day? Type smarter with HERO's patented design that reduces finger travel 35% (or "3 feet per Tweet"). How? In English, we use just 9 keys 80% of the time, so HERO's smarter design puts those keys in the middle where your thumb likes to be.

Here's how else HERO helps you:

- Phone too big? Tilt iPhone 6/6+ to move HERO's keys for easy 1-thumb typing.

- Fingers too fat? Me too. On HERO, the most-used keys are 30% bigger than QWERTY.

- @, #, -, ?, !, comma and period always on the main screen.

- Tap HERO's perfectly placed Bolt button to enter a SPACE (or double-tap for Period+SPACE).

- HOLD or 3D-Touch the Bolt for super-quick access to numbers, cursor control, and your recent emojis and symbols.

- Hold or 3D Touch keys for accented characters, an em-dash or underscore, a .com, and more.

Basic typing is free! For $0.99/month, subscribers get:
- Access to all themes and a new one every month
- Full emoji access with HERO's smarter groupings
- Full symbol view
- The super-fast dialpad-number view

Let's leave QWERTY for 10-finger typing, like it was designed for in 1873. Today, we need the efficiency of HERO to save every second we can. Join the movement, and you can help guide HERO's development (swipe is in the plan!) at the HERO Users Group.

From the reviews:

"What a mobile keyboard should've been from the beginning!"

"WOW! This is LONG OVERDUE! The more you use it, the easier and faster it gets!"

"Who would've thought, a keyboard that makes sense to use with your thumbs."

Subscribing to HERO Keyboard enables you to use the full Emoji, Dialpad, and Symbol views, plus access to all themes with a new theme added every month. The subscription costs $0.99/month, and automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Payments will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of the initial purchase, then charged $0.99 for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current monthly period. After purchasing, you can manage your subscription or turn off auto-renewal by going to “Settings > iTunes & App Store > [tap your Apple ID] > View Apple ID > Subscriptions.”

HERO does not require "Full Access," and it does not record, save, store, or transmit your keystrokes. Woot! For more, see our privacy policy at:

Customer Reviews

Confused but also like it

Im confused about letter placement. There is no intuitive order to the placement of the lesser used letters that I can see. The center keys are AWEOME BUT LOOKING for other keys slowed me WAY down and defeats the purpose. Plus I had tons of typos. Am I missing something?

One other thing that bugs me is that the letters in the center are designed to also spell the app name and having a pre-existing word there every time you try to use it actually throws off words you're trying to create via the letters.

I want to like this but...
