As demoed in the video below, Nintype is a themed keyboard app that enables users to type like a ninja. It features a two-handed sliding keyboard for constructing words with slides and taps, a top bar for quickly correcting previous words, and support for backspace slide for quickly deleting words.
Also, it features an easily accessible numeric keypad along with a built-in calculator (pictured) that allows quick calculations without having to leave the app for a dedicated calculator app.
Its this built-in calculator feature that has caught the Apples app extension police, so to speak.
As explained by Nintype developer Jormy Games, in Apples (clouded) view, the apps integrated calculator violates an apparently unwritten app extension guideline: that “completing calculations” is “not an appropriate use of App Extensions. Go figure.

And so, in compliance with Apples judgment, the calculator feature has been removed from Nintype through the apps latest update, which is an otherwise welcome update as it also brings the following improvements:
Critical bug fix where tutorial gets stuck
Backspace slide now restores letters when you slide back to the right. You can disable this behavior in options
Slide right from caps key to undo deletion, just like backspace slide
You can now edit keys, edit key shortcuts, and the like
