TypeWay supports 10-finger typing with automatic adaptation of the key configuration. TypeWay is for iPad only, and sets focus on 10-finger touch-typing. The keyboard layout of Version 1.2 is: English international, landscape mode.
TypeWay starts with a „DEFAULT“ key configuration.
It automatically adapts to hands and certain typing habits.
By „RESTORE“ a configuration is used which has been
saved („SAVE“) as favorite.
„FREEZE“ locks the actual key configuration.
„UNFREEZE“ activates the adaptation.
Basic management of text files:
“NEW” opens a new text file.
“EDIT” and “Rename” can delete or rename notes.
“SHARE” uses Mail, Twitter, AirPrint, "Send to iTunes", "Open In..."
iOS 5 features are integrated, as cut, copy & paste,
spell-checker, suggestions for word correction,
and multi-touch features.
TypeWay supports fast typing, e.g. for protocols,
lesson-scripts, interviews, mails, and basic text editing.
The iPad actually does not allow to replace its preinstalled
keyboard in general, here text export via “SHARE”
(e.g. Mail or "Open In...") or copy & paste is recommended:
A double tap on the text field opens the option “Select All”,
by which the iPad’s cache memory saves the text. Then in another
app or program a double tap in its text field opens the option “Paste”.
A new version with general functionality will come soon.

Unable to use - Worthless
Installed on my iPad Pro, 9.7", this app crashes after typing a few characters in a note. Uninstalled and reinstalled - same result. Unless updated and fixed - this is useless to me. Disappointed.
Update: here it is 3 months later and this app has not been fixed. Still crashes after typing a few letters. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!
Give it a try!
Typeway is a pretty cool app. If your like me and take a ton of notes and write long emails from your ipad then you should try this app out. It will take a few minutes to get used to but the app will adjust the keys to your typing patterns. One cool new feature is that you can freeze the keys once you find a comfortable key adjustment that you like . Give it a try!
A keyboard just for you!
Every person types differently and Typeway helps you customize the keyboard for the way you type. It gets some taking used to but once you do you will be able to type even faster and more efficiently. Become a speed-typer in no time!
