    I was really surprised by how easy it was to adapt to the new keyboard layout. I feel like spending more time in it will help reach the advertised 70% percent speed gain. To the people who say that you're stuck using it, press the 123 key and then the globe key on the following set of characters. I feel like it's a little slow to switch, and the punctuation is not very intuitive. While it is clear and easy to find symbols, it takes a bit of extra time to find what you need sometimes.

    I love the larger key layout on this, but im havng trouble with the auto-correct function in that it seems to be not behaving as I would expect it to. For example, if i want to say that im ready to do something, the i's don't get capitalized and i don't always get the apostrophies to insert where they should, so i am having to go back to manually correct the multiple mistakes i make by not swiping up or holding the long press as I need to do. I have the auto-correct turned on in the settings, but it doesn't seem to do what I expect it to do. Im on an iphone 7, did I miss something or what? BTW, I love the privacy that is promised, but Im used to seeing the auto-correct options above the keyboard and being able to tap the correction from there. So, what am i missing?

    I've been using WRIO for about three weeks. The first major re-think of a mobile keyboard I think actually works. Very high learning curve as you might imagine (at least for this old man trying to learn new tricks), but my accuracy is way up, I think my speed will be, and I find it hard to go back to the standard keyboard in the few apps it won't work with. The use of swipe for capitalixation, delete and restore, and to reassign keys to special charactors mean all of these tasks can be done with fewer key strokes and one-handed. Woth the effort to learn the modified layout, and highly recommended.

    Edited review, have been using the beta version for the next release and this keyboard is about to get a lot better. After awhile it gets to feel amlot morelnatural and comfortable than the stock keyboard. I wouldn't necessarily say it is faster than the standard keyboard, but it definitely feels better to type on even if you are really probably typing the same speed. Also the gestures really help with only having to type tings once. Really shares a lot of similarities with Fleksy another great keyboard.

    Typewise is equally as good as Dynamic keyboard. I adore them both. Equally. Typewise helps with my spellings. Also makes me feel more comfortable. While Dynamic looks more stylish. Trust them both.

    I like the basic concept. The drastic change in the keyboard layout is refreshing. It does, however, have some flaws that bug me. The top row doesn't seem sensitive enough. I'll occasionally go to type a t or an i and it won't register. Text substitution not allowing for special characters is a huge letdown. I use Apple's built in text substitution both to type the interrobang (‽) and to type various ascii emoji. The lack of versatility in the text substitution feature on this keyboard heavily stymies that. On top of lack of versatility in text substitution, the absence of a shift key of some kind and forced reliance on the swipe up to capitalize gesture makes typing in ALL CAPS really annoying. Finally, the autocorrect seems way off. It misses obvious mistakes like woth (should be with), it won't autocorrect contractions like don't or shouldn't at all, and it wrongly corrects words like app to alp!

    After I'm using it for a while, it's simpy incredible! I'm much faster as with the Apple keyboard, especially on the iPad, and missing it if I have to use a device where it's not installed. Thanks to the developers, great job ☺️☺️☺️

    With the last update, all sorts of problems. The keyboard is not working properly like it used to. I?ve been using this for several months now. When I press for the numbers, it does not show the numbers, but will type the numbers if you press the right alpha key. Also, when pressing the question mark to get an apostrophe, it won?t work, as you can see here with the word won?t. Backspacing delete doesn?t work right. Deleted part of my original review to say why would you respond to me in German?
  • NOT WORTH MONEY Jul 4, 2018

    By Denarcy3
    NOT WORTH THE MONEY! Difficult to swipe backwards (in fact I CANT) to delete unwanted text! IMPOSSIBLE to do. I’ve wasted more time trying to delete.... Special characters? Nope can’t get them either! TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! DONT PURCHASE!!!!!!!!!!
  • Great idea! Needs some improvement Jun 22, 2016

    By Anthony Hollander
    This app has a lot of potential. I am strugling a few days to adapt to the new layout, steep lurning curve, but I am typing each day faster and faster. When I need to type a lot, I still switch to my original keyboard. Yes, you can switch. When you press/touch the numbers button the button with the globe appears at the right, where you can switch keyboards. Took me e little effort to figure that out, but it's pretty easy once you know. Finally these large and thick thumps have a matching keyboard. But then again......4 weeks later and I am still slower than on my normal keyboard. I can still see the potential, but I am deleting this keyboard as it actually slows me down instead of making me faster. It was worth a try. 2 stars for a great idea though.

    Sad to see that WRIO has 'updated' into this. First I thought it was just me having to get used to it. But sadly, after several weeks of use. It's not it for me. As a long time user of WRIO it saddens me that I might have to find a different keyboard. - Autocorrect. It is sluggish and it often autocorrect it wrongly. - Backspace usage is hard now. Cant always reach the end of my screen and have to delete much in several strokes which tires me. - Keyboard often doesnt appear. Or stays numeric.

    By Chee- Rex
    This keyboard is a cool design and it helps to make it easier to type the right keys on small screens. I think it can be improved if it has a light autocorrect, a voice button, incognito mode, swipe from number key to choose punctuation (like on Gboard). My keyboard also crashes a lot randomly when it is opened. The only reason this design of a keyboard wouldn't help you type faster is if you like keyboards with strong autocorrect. then they would be faster.

    By Tommy Gao
    Great keyboard that I have been using for years, but after the typewise update, I have to reach all the way across my phone screen to delete a lot of text. Is there anyway to change it to how it was like on WIRO where the backspace only needed a little swipe to the left and I can just hold it there instead of drag to all the way to the left hand of the screen? My screen is big and it is super uncomfortable to delete a lot of text now.

    I like the app overall, enough to get used to the keyboard layout and to buy the pro version. I really love the replacement feature, it's amazing it's not on every keyboard! Being able to access to some special characters without switching to the numpad would help though, like @ or - for instance. Why not letting the user choosing a couple of them like you do with custom accents?

    Hey on the hexagon keyboard the swipe to delete only works half the time. It’s annoying and I would like a refund but there no way to contact you. Otherwise it’s good but autocorrect doesn’t always work too.

  • Too much of a departure from standard keys Jun 20, 2017

    I wanted to like this keyboard, but the key positions are too different from where the keys "belong". My typing speed was abysmally slow. Kudos for trying something different.
  • Getting there May 24, 2016

    By Paddy O'Hanrahan
    I read a review of this app and decided to give it a try. I'm a chronic fat-fingerer. The tutorial was mostly fine and I like the way the keyboard is layed out and in fact, I believe for typing it's probably a better alternative to QWERTY, but two things stood out that are kind of linked: First, I couldn't figure out how to revert back to QWERTY once the WRIO keyboard was activated. Maybe I just missed it, but I swear, I thought I was trapped. Why would I need to do that you ask? Well, reason number two is that there doesn't appear to be any access to voice texting through WRIO, which I use on the go a lot. So I couldn't get out of WRIO and back to QWERTY to access voice texting. The app has promise, but still more work to do. If I just "missed" how to do this (there is no manual or help feature), please feel free to post how to do it.
  • Long Way to Go, but Getting There Sep 21, 2016

    By NoOpenNicknames
    I love this keyboard desperately. The design is so polished and such a realistic improvement from the default keyboard; the swiping and holding effects are placed perfectly, and the color selections are tasteful. Nonetheless, it crashes and lags so often I have to revert back to the default apple keyboard for sometimes days at a time. The autocorrect changes correctly-spelled words to typos (or at least words so obscure they look like acronyms), or correctly-spelled words to other words that look similar to the original. Having autocorrect on at all even lags the input behind by entire seconds. It needs some work, but I wouldn't ever want to delete this app. I'd love to see it improve in the coming months and years. So close to being worth the price of admission
  • You've got some problems. Oct 25, 2016

    By Cole_Man2000
    Ok i love this keyboard, but there is no autocorrection. And when i open an app that requires me to type it takes around 30 seconds to open WRIO. when changing from ABC's to 123's it takes a few seconds to change. Beyond that the app it self is just poorly put together. Half the "cool tricks" you guys say this keyboard is capable of, doesn't work! I'm tired of this keyboard not closing when I want it to, not using the characters I want it to, "autocorrecting" CORRECT words into INCORRECT! I mean what's up with that? I'm tired of having to deal with it please just fix it. It's got great potential.
