    As I’m sure we all know, everyone complains about the shift key on the iOS keyboard. Is it on? Is it off? No one knows. Well, we went ahead and did something about it. Our new iOS keyboard extension Shifty is designed to do ONE thing and ONE thing ONLY:

    Fix the iOS shift key.​

    No more confusion about whether the shift key is on or off. With Shifty, you'll always know.

    Additionally, Shifty lets you choose the color of the shift key. So…ok…I guess that’s actually two things. Like I said, Shifty is designed to do TWO things and TWO things ONLY:

    Fix the iOS shift key and let you choose its color.​

    To help promote the launch, we’ve made a rather amusing promotional video:


    Shifty just launched today, so let me know if you’d like any other information about it. I’m sure you are all relieved that the days of shift key ambiguity have finally come to an end.

    Kind Regards,

    Nice work!

    Can we have a dark version of the keyboard next? Pleeeeease?!

    I know there's a ton of alternatives but I really like Apple's stock keyboard.

    It certainly is a possibility. Of course, then Shifty would do THREE things, which might exceed its feature threshold. Maybe we can do it as an $1 IAP?

    I'd have to see how it turned out before committing but if it maintains the functionality/ease of use of the stock keyboard I'd be all for it.

    Three is a good number anyway.

    Three dollar IAP? I guess I was undervaluing it. Thanks!
