    Voice to text works part of the time.

    I'm waiting for a telepathic keyboard.

    Thanks everyone for wanting to test drive QuickBoard! The app is currently in private beta with only a small handful of slots available. To apply, please send an email to contact@quickboardapp.com.

    I'm wondering when TextExpander will create their own keyboard or partner with some other keyboard.

    does the API allow a different design too or does it have to look like the apple keyboard sorta? like could a dev decide to make a black keyboard with capital and lower case letters?

    Looks like one of those things that offers more functionality than practicality.

    As far as I understand, it is up to the developer to determine how the keyboard is designed, as long as you comply with the Custom Keyboard guidelines (https://developer.apple.com/library....html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40014214-CH16-SW1) and the iOS Human Interface Guidelines (https://developer.apple.com/library/iOS/documentation/userexperience/conceptual/mobilehig/).

    Thanks for making this app. I use a similar 'Jailbreak' app called 'PasteBoardKey' and can't live without it.

    I have few questions...

    1. Will it be Universal keyboard?
    2. How much will/might it cost?
    3. Will there be backup/import option to Dropbox? (I really don't trust icloud.)
    Autosync to all iOS devices+Dropbox?
    4. Security? I will put many sensitive personal data in there. How will the app protect it from prying eyes?


    Also, Please add a 'Clipboard' section. So that, any text (or image?) I copy will be store to a temporary place from where I can easily add it to my 'Permanent' QuickBoard section. Thanks!

    Great, great questions.

    1. Yes, QuickBoard will be available for both iPhone and iPad.
    2. Pricing to be determined
    3. Backup and sync are definitely in the plans for a future release.
    4. Your text clips, your contact info, your current location - not a single bit of it leaves the device and goes nowhere without your insertion. Your data only exists between QuickBoard and the app into which you choose to insert your text/contact info/location.

    I only have a few... most notably..

    pub = I'd really like to go to the pub. I have the thirst of a million camels. Would you like to partake in a beverage or 2 with me?

    ----------

    Why? Do you think Dropbox are more ethical?

    Another one of those software items that sound good to buy, but in actuality quickly become closet-ware. It either gets out of hand remembering your shortcuts, or your shortcut list is sufficiently short that you're saying the same phrases day in and day out; a total bore.

    I'm quite interested in the score for the ad. Did you compose it? If so, might releasing it?

    Thanks for asking! I did compose it! I'm working on a full-length version I'd like to release in the future, but currently the piece is only the length of the video.

    There will be no ads in QuickBoard. It will be a paid app.

    SwiftKey is amazing. I agree, larger screen will be better.
