Since iOS 8 public launch, we've seen different kinds of third-party keyboards that change the default iOS keyboard like Swiftkey and other apps. But earlier today and while checking the App Store for latest updates, my eyes fell on a new app called 100 fonts keyboard for iOS 8. I found it to be different from the other keyboards we've seen so far so I thought I'd share it with you.
Just to be fair, this app doesn't offer 100 different fonts as I counted only about 30 of them. Still, that is quite the selection.
The best thing about this keyboard app is allowing you to decorate your words with different type of fonts and available in anywhere you can type, including Message, WhatsApp, Kik, Line, Kakao Talk, WeChat, Email, Notes, Facebook, Twitter and more.
Once installing it on your iPhone, you will have to add it to your list of keyboards and enable full access if you want to enjoy different types of fonts everywhere on your iPhone. I understand giving full access to a developer you don’t know can be a scary thought, but unfortunately some keyboards require this to function properly. For example, this keyboard’s fonts are contained into the app, which is why you need to give it full access. Without it, the app couldn’t communicate with they keyboard and let you use different fonts.
The fonts found in this keyboard aren’t nothing to call home about. In order to change between fonts type, simply tap the red F icon, and select the More option. This will take you to the app from where you can select a new font. Then return to whatever you were typing and your new font will be selected automatically. Switching fonts back and forth is kind of cumbersome but it is a limitation of iOS you can’t really do anything about.
Most fonts are available for free, but the developer lets you unlock more fonts type by giving the app five stars rating in the App Store. I find this to be extremely shady, and to be honest, I’m not even sure Apple actually allows that in the App Store. This one might have just gone through the cracks.
I don't ask you to download it because it is useful, but in my opinion it is a new funny app that will give your keyboard a new look.
