iOS app: Path Input – Swipe Keyboard Note iPad

Posted In iPad, iPhone - By Techtiplib on Friday, August 29th, 2014 With No Comments »

This iOS app is a quick, smart and fun input solution on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Path Input’s distinctive features are as followed:

  • Path Input Keyboard
    • Input a word by drawing its path on the keyboard. For example, to input the word “book”, you can touch down your finger at key ‘B’, move to key ‘O’, then to key ‘K’ and lift up your finger. This input mode can tolerate the error. In the above case, if you lift up your finger at key ‘L’, you can also get the word “book” since “bol”, “bool” or “boll” is not meaningful or common English word.
  • Insert Space Intelligently
    • When you input words continuously with Path Input, the space between them will be automatically inserted.
  • Prefix Prediction
    • You can input any long word by only drawing its prefix. For example, to input word “quickness”, you can only draw the path “q-u-i-c-k-n”.
  • Distinctive Shift Key
    • With Path Input, click Shift key can easily switch the word before the cursor, for example, “good”, between “Good”, “GOOD” and “good”. If there is a selection, all selected text will become uppercase or lowercase.
  • One-Key Copy
    • You can forward your text to Message or Mail in app, and easily copy the text into system paste board by clicking only one key at the bottom tool bar. This copy is global. You can paste it anywhere, even in other apps.
  • Multi-language support
    • Now, Path Keyboard supports English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Polish, Ukrainian, Romanian and Croatian. More languages are coming soon.
