Keybee Keyboard beta

Keybee Keyboard beta


Discover the new way of typing on touchscreen.

Keybee is a new keyboard studied and designed specifically for smartphones and tablets.
Being this devices used only with the thumb (or index finger) and for one hand typing, it is clear that the standard qwerty keyboard could be improved and exceeded because it was created for two hands typing 150 years ago. Hence the idea to shake up the common structure of the keyboard using models and arrangements more efficient for one hand typing.

The Keybee keyboard reduces by more than half the number of touches necessary to write a text without using any predictive input method. How? Try it, it's free.

****
ATTENTION: Change keyboard size in keybee settings if the layout appears not aligned.

It is possible that for some devices with a very low resolution (240x320 pixel) the Keybee doesn't work. Sorry we are working to fix it.

Main features of Keybee:

● Hexagonal beehives cell structure, which optimizes the keyboard's area, reduces the distance between the letters, shows the letters clearly (from 30% to 50% bigger size than the current standard in the same area) and allows an ergonomic use of the smartphone for right handed people or left handed people;

● Repositioning of the space bar in the centre of the keyboard. Space bar is the most used button so now it will be always confortable to reach;

● New arrangement of the letters in that hexagonal structure in reationship with their distance from the centre of the keyboard (space key) and based on the analysis of the frequencies for each language;

● Linking of the most frequent word groups and syllables (pronouns, prepositions, terminations, etc.) that are close together to guide the finger on the shortest route during their insertion. In this mode a lot of words or part of words are instantly composed thanks to the "click+swipe" combination.

All this reduces by more than half the number of touches necessary to write a text without using any predictive input method: this is the real leap of quality.

The current version is the first beta version. The goal of this beta version is to show the idea and the structure to users and developers who can try it and comment it. Meanwhile I'm studying on how to improve it incented by reviews.

The languages available in this release are English, Spanish, Italian and German.


Thanks to all for your attention and for the reviews.

Very promising keyboard app...Great job Just downloaded it today...looking for a keyboard for my starmobile diamond v3 smartphone which has a defect on the left hand side where the q and 1 is position. This app solve my problem in an awesome way, now i can use the q and 1 when typing by one hand. Just need to adapt on the new lay-out of the keys and by the ways, it needs an enter key on the letter side part. i give you 4 star for this, but if missing enter key is updated..will change it to 5 star. Great app for smartphones and tablets....GREAT JOB!.......AWESOME

Has potential I just tried it out and I think I might like it. It is actually quite fast, and real thought went into the key placement. It's pretty fast even without practice. I use a tablet so there should be some options about where to place the key pad. What if I "need" to type with my right hand? I haven't found the "ENTER" key. update: I finally found the ENTER key. It takes two taps. Not to annoying once it is figured out. Here's what I find annoying: 1) There is no tutorial anywhere. Even bad documentation is better than nothing. This app has none. Trial and error. 2) Unable to reposition the keyboard to a different location on the screen (on a tablet). It is stuck on the left--forcing left-thumbed typing.

Odd... If they keys adapted in real time to help you swype, they could be on to something. Only letting you swype to specific words in a seemingly non-intuitive layout just doesn't make sense to me. No thanks!
