Most custom keyboards are simply eye candy or loaded with gimmicks. Not Elliptic Keyboard. Instead, it actually tries to solve a problem: One handed typing. It’s quite difficult to do on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus due to their widths. Elliptic Keyboard makes it easier by bending and pushing the rows of keys closer to one side of the screen. Lefties can tap the hand icon to flip the keyboard around. You’re also able to swipe across the keyboard to create a space and delete characters.
Elliptic Keyboard is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 22 ratings.
