eReflect and Ultimate Typing™ software salute the upgrades brought forward with iOS 8, highlighting their approval of and support for new technology, like the predictive keyboard which enhances touch typing for the iPhone devices.

Ultimate Typing™, one of the best typing tutors on the market, finds this release a highly needed advancement of touch-screen technology, given the increasing number of iOS users globally. Improving the efficiency, speed, and accuracy of touch-screen keyboards is a constant demand of smartphone and iPhone users in all global markets, and Apple seems to have paid heed to these requests as the latest iOS 8 new features reveal.

Workflow is streamlined and time is saved since the iOS 8 allows for quick pop-up text replies. The user no longer has to leave an application to reply to a message. In addition, thanks to smart notifications, the users can slide down on them to respond to a text message. By sliding down, a keyboard also pops up to make touch typing easy and fast, an ease-of-use feature that eReflect, the developer of the touch typing tutor, finds particularly helpful.

Apart from more efficient touch typing to save time, Apple’s iOS 8 uses a predictive keyboard, which the company promotes as being intuitive and smart enough to know what the user is going to say next and suggest it for them. The keyboard predicts the next phrase or word based on the context of the previous words typed by the user. Since the predictions are contextually bound and thus more accurate, the predictive keyboard hopes to make touch typing less time-consuming and decrease the number of typing errors. The idea is that with a few taps the user can write whole sentences with impressive speed and accuracy.

The new intuitive keyboard iOS 8 offers is smart enough to distinguish between applications when it comes to writing style, notes eReflect. Mail messages are generally more formal and have more business oriented language use. On the other hand, text messages tend to be more informal, playful, and personal, and the suggestions from the predictive keyboard are in tune with this more laid-back writing style.

Ultimate Typing™ and eReflect, developer of the learn to type software, find the new updates in the iOs 8 helpful and intuitive and predict that iPhone users will take great pleasure in using the new keyboard. To meet the needs of a world-wide customer base, this new feature is available not only in English but also in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai. English-language keyboards are optimized for UK, US, Canada, or Australia English, giving it increased flexibility, eReflect concludes.
