One of the major iOS 8 announcements at last week’s WWDC was support for third-party keyboards. Developers behind many third-party keyboards have been excited about the announcement that Apple’s iOS 8 will now allow them to develop keyboards for the iPhone and iPad.
Fleksy, Swype, and SwiftKey have already shown interest in designing a keyboard for iOS 8 users, now that Apple has opened up the APIs to developers. And now TouchPal will also be gearing up for a release of their third-party keyboard later on in the year.
TouchPal’s demo video shows its keyboard supporting gesture-based input similar to that of Swype. TouchPal also supports auto-correct and predictive word suggestions, although these are not shown in the demo video.
Will you guys be using TouchPal when it is released or will you guys be sticking to the QuickType keyboard that Apple has added to iOS? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments section down below and don’t forget to give me a shout on Twitter – @malloriedeaton.
