There are plenty of iOS keyboard apps that you can install on your iPhone or iPad to have a faster typing speed, but the new Hipjot keyboard is definitely going to raise some eyebrows with the writing speed that it promises. Created by app developer Yose Widjaja, this new Swype-style keyboard is a mix between gesture-based Android keyboard Swype and the standard iOS keyboard, as users can type with two hands by using swipe gestures.
Users can also choose to type normally and swipe through letters with one or two hands, which means impressive typing speeds can be achieved. The developer himself has managed to reach the peak speed of 120 words per minute, which is much higher than Swypeâ€™s typing speed of 50 words per minute. You can see his performance in the video at the end of the article.
The keyboard is embedded inside the Hipjot note-taking app that is available for $1.99 on the iTunes store. At the moment the app will work only with iPhone and iPod, but support for iPad will soon be added.
