    I just release a new iOS app: Fast Keyboard.
    (I am the developer)

    It is a text editor with an addition two-row keyboard to make typing faster.

    On top of the standard iOS keyboard, you can have numbers, symbols, unicode symbols, frequently used words, and even email/article templates.

    Then you don't need to constantly switch between the letter keyboard and the number keyboard. And you can type with fancy symbols: π,☆,÷,♥,♬ and so on.

    And the text you wrote links to Dropbox, Facebook, and Tumblr.

    And there are some advanced functions, like
    • Left and right arrow keys to move the cursor
    • Search a word
    • Word, line, character counting
    • Key statistics

    If you have any question or comment, please let me know. Thanks a lot.

    Why does nobody put navigation keys on the keyboard (up, down, left, right)? I know you can touch position the cursor but I find the keys a lot easier for moving around in text.

    This one has left and right navigation keys. For up and down maybe touching the position is easier.

    If I could replace my default keyboard with it I'd be happy as a clam but as is it's faster for me to just type the words vs opening one app, opening another , typing, copy, back to the first, paste. I like the app but Apple is holding it back by making it be a secondary use.

    Hi Hayles66,

    Actually now I am working on a new version which will provide some superscript/subscript support.

    Oh, yes! Thank you, thank you! I teach science so this is an obvious one for me, nothing worse than writing chemistry equations and having large numbers all over the place! The kids have to learn the correct position of the numbers and if the teacher doesn't have it right, I'm the one in trouble. Let me know when this is done immediately! Thank you!

    How use FB within Docs To Go

    I use Docs To Go, and would love to use Fast Keyboard within it. How can I do that? Do you have a set of instructions?

    Thanks,

    I am new to the mac world. I love your app but how do i get it to replace the keyboard that I have. So far I have to open up your app, type what I want, cut ... then close your app and open another app and then paste. Is this how it works? Please explain a more effecient way to use this. Thanks,
