Finally works without constant crashing!
This poor app and developer has had issues with this app. It’s kinda awesome in what it does, but it froze constantly, pushing ppl away from it - this wasn’t because the developer was a poor one, apple has issues that they couldn’t figure out with third party keyboards.
I’m not going to lie - when you download this app, its honestly frustrating as hell because of the learning curve and making it learn how you type, but after a while it is much better and your speed will increase considerably. I bought this a long time ago, so I’m not sure of the current cost, but the one draw back I think I can think of is that you others using your phone with struggle hardcore with using it because it is such a specialized keyboard. Because of this, I still keep my ios keyboard installed so that if somebody else is typing for me they can.
Now if apple would allow for the third party apps to use Siri when you truly need to speak your text, I’d love this even more than I already do.
For the user that was having trouble typing when the dictionary didn’t have a word, you enable peck mode and then favorite it by force pressing on the word. When you do this, it adds it for the future and you’re good to go for the next time.
Final thing is to make sure you back up your words semi regularly because you don’t accidentally to lose all your stuff - what I do is put my stuff in a note and save it in icloud.
Really, I love this app.
I had previously hated this app because I was often unable to use it. It was due to a crashing bug and a graphics bug in which the keyboard would always lie halfway off the screen. None of that anymore. Jormy is a diligent developer-- if you want an innovative piece of software that's under active development and good leadership, you can count on Nintype to deliver it. Besides everything that I have so far said, this app gives you the flexibility and productivity that absolutely EVERYONE can benefit from.
It's definitely true that the learning curve is huge-- but think of it as a small walk uphill for an infinitely spanning smooth ride downhill. It's worth it, and at $4.99, frankly, it's a steal.
Nintype is superb. I’ve tried every keyboard on the app store and nintype is the only one that delivers. It definitely has a learning curve, but it’s well worth it! The ability to store shortcuts allows me to turn my entire keyboard into a collection of templates, shortcuts, signatures, etc.
There are some bugs. The latest version has been crashing sometimes when I go into the settings menu. But the rest of the keyboard is quite solid and probably comes close to doubling my typing speed.
Just the ability to have a key defined as “delete last world” and “delete last sentence” would be worth it, and that’s about .1% of this keyboard‘s power.
