TipTap is a unique text input method providing an alternative to the QWERTY keyboard.

No more hunt and peck...a tried and true method of typing called CHORDING or chorded text input allows you to type by using five binary chords rather than keys.

Lets you type without looking at the screen.

Great for people with low vision who are tired of trying to touch the tiny letters.

AlsoThe Text-to-Speech function is a great communication tool for those with a speech impediment. Three builtin-phrases.

Been waiting 40 years for this

Best app on itunes.

0/5 stars

Great idea, horrible execution

1) There apppear to be no instructions on how to use the app within the app itself; you have to go to the Website for that.

2) The Website makes no reference to any way to type capitals, punctuation marks, and special symbols.

3) You can't adjust the font size or style - important for low vision users.

4) The app doesn't work with VoiceOver - vital for completely blind users.

5) The text rolls off the screen after a few words. You can't even scroll over to see what you're typing.

6) When the text-to-speech voice speaks aloud the words, the text suddenly moves to the keyboard space and turns grey.

7) Most importantly, there appears to be no way to copy text into other apps. (The standard select-and-copy gesture for the iPhone - hold down your finger - simply reorders the keyboard in this app.) Thus what you've typed serves no purpose, unless you need to have it spoken aloud immediately.

I'd really like to see this app be successful; it's a great idea. But it needs a lot of work before it will be useable as more than just a demo tool.

5/5 stars


Very cool, finally Doug Engelbart's vision of the chorded keyset in action! Use it to teach binary systems or just as a one-handed typing system. Huge potential!
