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.

  • good to see more keyboards making their way to IOS. Can't wait for IOS8 to try these out.

  • Eh? me things your math is off..
  • Huh? me thinks your spelling is off...
  • Huh? I think your grammar is off...
  • That is a truly crazy keyboard! I love the innovative approach and, assuming it works as well as it demos, look forward to using it.
  • It's definitely not easy to use but it does what it intends to do well
  • Nice!
  • Not the easiest keyboard to adapt to. I think they have an invisible mode as well, which in concept sounds great but a little tricky. Hoping that these keyboards communicate cross platform. They get better the more you use and give access to them. Posted via the Android iMore App!
  • I was hoping this keyboard would be ported over. It's pretty nifty, but not my cup of tea. Probably very useful for those with small displays such as the iPhone. Despite the whole Android vs iOS nonsense, I hope Google ports their keyboard too. It's honestly the best keyboard I've used on Android. Something tells me Google wouldn't be opposed to doing so.
  • Agree, I think google could end up making their keyboard available on IOS as well Sent from the iMore App
  • Not a fan of Miniuum. I've tried it on all display sizes i could from 4.5, 5.5, 7, to 10 inches, but just plain don't like it. I always go back to Swiftkey or Google Keyboard.
  • I'm excited abt new keyboards making inroads into iOS8. It might seem like a over reaction to some, but I've found the Windows phone keyboard and Android keyboards 'fat finger' friendly and iOS keyboard makes me frustrated a lot of times. So yes.. I'm excited abt this. Sent from the iMore App
