The New Standard
Meet Thumb Keyboard, the revolutionary input method for both Android Tablets and Phones. The innovative split design (first introduced and designed by Beansoft in 2010) quickly set the industry standard for tablet input. Today, you will find many companies such as Apple, Microsoft as well as developers on the Android platform basing their keyboard designs off our original concept. But while the competition is catching up to our original design, we kept pushing forth our innovation! Thumb keyboard brings you more features than any other keyboard that’s currently based off our split layout.
Thumb Keyboard was designed from the ground up to be extremely flexible; it puts the user in control to insure the best possible experience when using an Android tablet. But we didn’t stop at tablets; we went on to create a custom split layout for Android(TM) Phones as well. Lets face it, phones these days seem to be getting bigger and bigger, so why not let the user decide which layout is best suited for their needs? The split design can drastically speed up your input time without having to learn a fancy new input method (or wait around for an input method to learn you!). Android is all about choice, and so are we. The choice is in your hands.
We’re not quite done yet…
Like we said, we like pushing forth innovation! Let’s highlight some of the advanced & exclusive features available to Thumb Keyboard users. Remember, these are only a few, out of the large list, of great features we have to offer in our keyboard. These features will show you what we are all about! We make it possible to type comfortably on a mobile device…ANY mobile device.

Adjustable size: width, height, space between keys
Hitting adjacent keys? No problem! Thumb keyboard allows you to adjust the spacing between the keys:
A layout for every screen size
The keyboard includes layouts that are optimized for every screen size. It provides optimized layouts for small phones, big phones, 7″ – 8.9″ tablets, 9.2″ – 10.1″ tablets, “phablets”. We made sure that our keyboard feels natural on each of these screen sizes. Split, regular… we made them fit we high precision.
One-handed operation mode for large-screen phones
We know that you love your new large-screen phone. And you are right! It’s a pleasure to browse, read and navigate on these devices. But you don’t like it to be a two-handed phone all the time, right? Well here’s our latest addition to the innovation we started with Thumb Keyboard: a one-handed (one-thumb) operated keyboard.
We added an easy toggle so you can switch fast between the normal portrait layout and this new one-handed layout.
Innovative split design for portrait mode
Yes we did it again! Inspiration from our landscape design lead to this cutting-edge split layout. This (patent pending) layout is ergonomically designed to give you the best typing experience while operating your Android phone in portrait mode. The keyboard is split into two blocks which are positioned diagonally from each rather than the traditional meththod
* Larger keys (so less errors due to hitting adjacent keys)
* A more natural layout for holding the phone while typing long messages
More than 25 Themes
Thumb Keyboard comes with 25+ themes (preinstalled and downloadable). To make the choosing a theme easy a coverflow viewer is included with previews of the selectable themes:
Long press symbols customization
With this release it is also possible to change the secondary symbols on the letter keys of thumb keyboard with a simple editor :
It’s also possible to assign accented characters like é å á î etc etc. Now you can just enter your specific language characters by just long pressing on a letter. What’s best, you can decide which letter to use… And with multi-touch capitalizing that letter is a breeze… Just hold shift and long press on the letter key. Entering accented letters is now as fast as entering a regular letter. (Tip: you can additionally turn of the popup keyboards in the settings and customize the long press duration)

As we mentioned earlier, we are all about choice. We let you, the user, choose which which layout you want to use in portrait and which one in landscape mode.
Thumb Keyboard puts you in charge of how you want to type. No need to conform to a static and unintuitive layout. Break free from the grasp of other inferior keyboards! Thumb Keyboard is the one keyboard app for all your Android devices!
Just want to keep it standard?
Typing by …. not typing
Madness!! But no, we are serious! We incorporated a whole new prediction model into our already feature-full keyboard. A prediction method that no competitor can rival. What exactly is this prediction method? Well just take a look at the picture above. Still don’t get it? Here, We’ll explain.
The prediction method (called Bigram prediction) uses a special algorithm to determine what your next word would be based on the previous word. You see, the traditional method of text prediction involves an algorithm that makes you enter at least 3 letters before the system will begin guessing what your trying to say. With Bigram prediction only need to enter ONE letter and it will begin finding the best possible match to the word your thinking of. This is a unique feature because this new prediction method not only looks at the previous word but also sees how the words are used in the context of the sentence. Don’t worry though, it’s just a computer doing it’s job-big brother is NOT watching you. Clever right?
10. Text to speech
In addition to voice to text, our keyboard contains yet another innovative feature: text-to-speech. This (optional) feature will say the words you write the moment you enter them in your text. This way you can concentrate on what you write instead of monitoring the typos you make.
This is just one of the numerous features we’ve crammed into our keyboard. So before you make your choice on which keyboard to choose from, go ahead and glance at what we have to offer…We think you will agree, we’re on a whole different level.
