Write English using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in any text app!

“Straightforward, well-organized, and easy to use. Thank you!” – user tlaney.

This app provides an English IPA keyboard that can be installed for use anywhere on your iPhone or iPad. Installation instructions are included.

The keyboard lets you type the IPA characters that are necessary to fully represent the pronunciation of English, including regional variations. Keyboard layouts are separately optimized for iPhone (three layers) and iPad (two layers).

IPA is used in many parts of the world to teach or document the pronunciation of English and other languages.

The keyboard and iOS are designed to protect your privacy: The keyboard can send text you type only to the app within which it is used; nowhere else. It does not access any other of your data.

iOS 9 compatibility note: Please avoid using the new Chinese PingFang fonts with IPA characters – they display “ɪ” as something close to “ | ”.
