Auto correction need improvement


I am getting really tired of having to correct this up. There are words, for example "so", the app corrects it to "do". Ok, not a big deal, just backspace to change it to so... Here is the frustrating part, it changes it to "do" again,and then again and again. If I am going back to correct, the app should know to at least change it to another word or keep the one I just corrected it to. And also here you see that I typed "..." the app automatically inserted a space and capitalized the next word. Also, if I put something in parentheses, we all know that the punctuation signs must go inside the parentheses. The app always places a space between the punctuation sign and the closing parenthesis. Little gripes here and there, but hopefully someone is listening and will make corrections. New version doesn'tautomaticallyspaceafter a worditrecognizes. <-- see what i mean?

TouchPal Rescued Me!


Every app can be improved, of course. But TouchPal is truly an amazing invention! How do I know it's truly amazing?

When people around me see me sliding my finger along on the keyboard, their reaction is almost universally similar: either their jaw drops and they exclaim, "how are you doing that?" Or, they (those who think they're very sophisticated) will come closer and say "How long did it take you to learn how to do that? I bet that isn't accurate most of the time."

My simple reply is usually something like "Whose texts are quicker & more accurate? Mine or yours? Then their eyes fall & they ask for the name of the app.

If I had to type out all the texts and work that I do on my phone daily, I'd be communicating much less with my world.

Also, I have arthritis in my hands & my fingertips are partiality numb on my right hand (I'm right handed). When a friend hands me their phone to type in something for them, I'm shocked at how much I strain to focus, & how clunky and difficult it feels after I've been swiping on my TouchPal keyboard for so long.

I'm so grateful for this keyboard! Honestly, I hope I never have to live without it! How can I get a Lapop or iPad with this keyboard option?

BTW, I am using an iPhone 7+ now, but I also used TouchPal on my Samsung Anidroid Note 3 for years. The app is ahead of it's time, for sure.

Still the top keyboard I use to type with


I still use this the most since it is faster for me and easier to type with. I wish that this app could try and keep up to date with the new emojis styles that Apple updates often. Also I wish that the Japanese language could be added to this app as well please. I also wish for unicode, symbols, and icons. These are what I have recommended because I would have to switch other keyboards very often which would be annoying and I would like it that this app could make it a little more easier by trying to add these features. Well I still use this app a lot more anyways so thank you and keep working hard at making this app my top keyboard.
