Best Keyboard Apps

There are a plethora of keyboard apps available in the App Store and Play Store. You don’t have to stick with the keyboard that came pre-installed. Some of the keyboard apps provide support for GIFs.

Below I’ve put together a list of powerful keyboard apps for iOS and Android devices. Let’s check them out.

    ZType has the look and feel of an old-school arcade game along the lines of space invaders, only you have to type out the words heading toward you in order to survive. It’s a fast-paced typing game which kids will really enjoy, but the speed and word selection will make it more suited to older children. It measures accuracy as a percentage of total and also calculates the longest streak of words you have blasted, so it really feels more like a game than a learning app. There are many keyboards available but the ads are really rather intrusive, so you might want to upgrade to get rid of them.
