Smartphones have come a long way over the past decade but one feature that you use all the time that hasn’t changed much at all is the keyboard.

The default virtual keyboard on your smartphone still uses the same layout that was developed in the 19th century for typewriters.   That layout may have converted well as we moved to electronic keyboards but does it still make sense on a phone?

Typewise is a next-generation keyboard for smartphones designed for two thumb typing, reducing typos by 80 percent.   It’s also worth noting that it’s also 100 percent private with all typing data staying on the device.
The basic Typewise app doesn’t cost anything, however if you want to take advantage of some of the premium features like vibrating keys and different themes then you’ll need to pay a subscription fee.
