A.I.type Keyboard Plus – Now With Improved Prediction and Correction Engine

Fans of the A.I.type Beta keyboard can now buy the ‘Plus’ version from the Android Market. When your competition is Swype, SwiftyKeyX, and FlexT9 you better bring your A-game. A.I.type has some great features which we wish some of the better known keyboards would have, and they only plan on growing the list. 

  • Suggests your next word.
  • Completes your current word.
  • Corrects your spelling as you type.
  • Auto corrects your typos when you hit the spacebar (context-sensitive)
  • Automagically learns your common words and style. We call it – MyType (beta)
  • Supports unique skins (Windows Phone 7 skin, iPhone skin, large buttons skin and more).
  • Allows skin customization – colors, background images etc.
  • Includes a layout for undo/redo/copy/paste/navigation and more.

Market Link ($4.82)

Compared to Swiftkey and others, is A.I.type on-par, better or worse?

    Just stumbled on this while looking for an iPhone skin. This keyboard, so far, is freaking amazing. Very accurate, very cool. The customizable elements are awesome as well.

  • Granted

    I’ll say it again, nothing has come out yet that beats ShapeWriter. And I’m totally not interested in a new keyboard, if it’s not a slide keyboard.

    best bid…

    I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://alturl.com/5ef53

  • $5 for a keyboard? I own Smart Keyboard Pro and Swiftkey, and would have bought this if it was a buck fifty or under but I think a quick Google search is in my future, want to try it but definitely not paying $5 bucks.

    my flext9 lags horribly on my Bionic.  I’ve just transitioned full-time to A.I. type.  

  • Quote:Psychic word completions and predictions are generated by A.I.type’s servers on the Cloud. When the device is offline or Internet connection is too slow, or if you disabled Cloud-based prediction, word suggestions will be generated by the device only.End Quote.

    THIS is why I won’t use it. I don’t mind the app checking in with a “cloud server” (I really want to kill anyone who uses this to just say “server”) every once in a while or gathering my personal typing habits anonymized and updating its own predictions, say, hourly. But to have everything I write sent to them, with my device ID attached, makes me extremely uncomfortable.

    A personal favorite but comma goes off bottom row often. predicts the .com to much even in the market on a non .com section…gumny charge rom

    Why is Thumb Keyboard not listed here?  Its the best.

    • ETPhoneHomeT

      I agree, Thumb Keyboard is probably the best keyboards out there that nobody knows about.  I don’t know why they don’t get more mention.  Loads of nice features.

  • And it still sends all of your typed letters to their servers, including personal information, right? No thanks.

  • Is it really that good 5 bucks is a lot of cash for a keyboard.

  • Oh snap, DL getting a little review love from the pic…getting your Ebert on Kellex?

    SwiftKey X is my favorite!

    Nice but a bit pricey. RIght now I use FlexT9 on my TB. On occasion when doing text entry it lags (sometimes several seconds behind) or it hangs up completely. This is especially annoying when I am using the swype motion as I have to draw the lines in ultra slow motion until the program seems to come back up to speed. I am guessing its FlexT9 and not just the phones OS, Im not sure though.

    I will wait for it to be the amazon free app of the day…

      you have 15min to try this out before you actually get charged numbnuts.
      stop being a freeloader.

      • Mikedeamicis

        yea, when they switched it to the 15 minute cool off period i stopped buying apps that i was not 100% sure about. 15 minutes is not long enough to decide if you want to keep it or not. i am guessing the change actually had a negative effect on sales across the android market.

          fair argument

      or, Just wait for the plus version to hit the Amazon App store, and use the $2 credit Amazon is offering… http://amzn.to/tweetapps2

      Please support the developers in some way for their hard work.  That attitude is exactly why a lot of app developers are reluctant to put in the work to create their apps for Android!

      • Granted

        Damn right. Everyone expects every app to be free, without the slightest idea how much hard work can go into making and releasing a new app.

    I’m still using the Beta version from the Market. Is this pay-for version a significant update?

    • Anonymous

      I’d like to know that answer as well. I use the keyboard and I often find the suggested words are nowhere near what I am looking for.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah… I thought it was supposed to learn from what you’ve typed before like other keyboards.

  • Anonymous

    I like the keyboard but to be on par they need to lower the price.

    If they bring the price down to $2.00 I will buy it.

  • Anonymous

    I still use SwiftKey. I tried using this keyboard for a few weeks but the prediction engine kept shutting off & wouldn’t return unless I restarted my phone. Defeated the purpose.

    •  Mine still does the same thing, so I stick with SwiftKeyX.

        Well, I’m glad it’s not just me at least. lol

  • AI Type is a great keyboard, to be sure, but the $4.82 price tag feels a bit steep.
