Is there the ability to type using T9 on the iOS? Which would be the best way to achieve this?
I don't really understand why this is not built in yet.... Unless I am missing a setting somewhere?
Why would anyone want to use T9 on today's cellphones with a keyboard?
T9 in what context? To type text messages, emails, etc.? For something else?
T9 is still much faster to type even with todays keyboards, i believe!
Mostly messages, but anywhere wouldn't be bad i recon.
You can probably find some apps that would offer that kind of ability within them so that you can then copy and paste or share the text into some other app. Or potentially some third party keyboard that might offer that.
That said, I don't really think that T9 is faster for typing purposes, perhaps for some short text only having one hand free type of circumstances, but even with that something like swiping/gliding could likely be faster.
I think my old blackberry had a t9 keyboard option...if I'm remembering correctly.
I really enjoyed using that keyboard.
Isnt there a way to integrate T9 to the iOS keyboards?
If there's a third party keyboard that offers that, you can install that keyboard and use it. The stock iOS keyboard that Apple offers doesn't have T9 (or swiping/gliding).
I don't believe there are any t9 keyboards for iOS atm.. for some strange reason. Would be perfect for people updating from dumb phones to an iphone.
There is a third party keyboard (it's called Type Nine), yet sometimes it gets slow and its predictions are not as accurate as those from my very old Nokia phones. I used it for a little while and then went back to the standard iOS keyboard.
