With plenty of text communication apps on the iPhone and iPad, it's imperative that we type fast in order to communicate quickly and efficiently. Swipe Type is an app that's designed to increase typing speed and efficiency.
Swipe Type is a very lightweight app, weighing in at just 8.3 MB, to ensure its smooth functioning. The input is customizable so I'd suggest playing around with it so you can find the sweet spot in typing speed and effect.
A predictive dictionary in tandem with the auto-correct function will scoop up any errors you make while a Character Count shows you the number of words you've typed.
Walk & Talk
You'll find all the usual features in this app such as changing the font style, size, color, and text alignment. Clipboard capabilities are integrated so you can easily copy and paste text into other apps. To make life even easier, developers have thoughtfully picked out the most-used text-input apps so that users can quickly open up the typed text within messaging systems such as WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook, Text Messages and Mail.
One of the coolest features of this app is the ability to have a transparent background while you are typing. This makes it very easy for users to type while they are walking, so you can send off emails or quickly jot down ideas while on the go.
