Self-adapting keyboard

TypeWay starts with a “Default” key-configuration.

The configuration automatically adapts to hands and typing habits.
( Of course, the distance between both hands should be normal. )
Type with small movements; don’t look at shifting keys – just type.
Initially, we recommend slow adaptation  (choose in settings)
or “Freeze” of a favorite configuration.  You can manipulate
such a favorite configuration by tapping keys, only to displace them.

The keys shift if you simultaneously lay down four fingers of either hand.
They shift relative to the fingertips (A) as initialization to fit your hands,
(B) through resting four fingers, or (C) as a reaction to typing.
Feature (A) resp. (B) can be switched off in “Settings”.
You can stop feature (C) by tapping “Freeze”.

You can save a key configuration as a favorite  (“Save”).
By “Restore” this saved configuration is used again.
Optional “Freeze” locks the actual configuration,
or “Unfreeze” activates the adaptation.

iOS features are integrated, such as cut, copy & paste, spell-checker,
suggestions for word correction and multi-touch features.

TypeWay supports fast typing, e.g., for protocols,
lesson scripts, interviews, emails, and basic text editing.

TypeWay as app

TypeWay, as a separate app, has note-taker functions such as typing and saving texts
(tap the TypeWay icon on your iPad).  See the example image below  (German layout). 

Basic management of text files:
“New” opens a new text file.  “Edit” and “Rename” can delete or rename notes.
“Share” uses AirDrop, Messages, Mail, Print, Pages, Word, Dropbox, Evernote, etc.
And text export is possible via copy & paste:  A double tap on the text field
opens the option “Select All”, so iPad’s cache memory saves the text.
Then, in another app or program, a double tap in the text field provides “Paste”.

TypeWay as a general keyboard

For use in various iPad applications, you can activate TypeWay
as a “third-party keyboard” in iPad’s settings:
> “General” > “Keyboard” > “Keyboards” > “Add New Keyboard” > “TypeWay”
This installation of TypeWay offers the question for “Full Access”.
“Full Access” can be activated or deactivated in the iPad settings
> “General” > “Keyboard” > “Keyboards” > “TypeWay” > “Full Access”
( TypeWay does not need to connect to the internet and does not transfer information. )
Each keyboard shows the Globe key to switch between available keyboards.
( In the Emoji keyboard, please tap “ABC” left below, if necessary, for some seconds. )
