Minuum keyboard heads to iOS 8

With Apple opening up to third-party keyboards on iOS 8, it looks like Minuum will be porting its keyboard to the iPhone in the future. "We're working on a version of Minuum for iOS now, and we'll let you know when it's ready to try," the company stated.

Minuum, currently available for the Android platform, describes itself as "the little keyboard for big fingers." Featuring a row of keys that's based on the QWERTY keyboard and the keyboard is built on predictive analysis rather than accuracy of pressing the letters you need.

An exact release date was not given for the keyboard.

Miniuum will be joining Swiftkey, Swype, and Fleksy on iOS 8 as alternative keyboards for the platform designed by third-parties.
