It's just like typing normally (especially when using two fingers), except you don't have to tap the screen everytime you want to type letters that are next to each other. Words like "awesome", "sweden", "suppose" and "seriously" become so much faster to type.
Swype, a currently popular gesture-based keyboard, only offers one handed swiping and does not allow users to switch between swipes and standard key entry. Swype is owned by Nuance and has only been released for Android devices. Despite talks with Apple, the keyboard has yet to make its way to iOS.
Yose Widjaja, the creator of the keyboard in Hipjot, says "With two finger inputs, you can be a lot more explicit in your touches, so it allows you to type without choosing what you want to type, most of the time, while retaining a comfortable swipe where you want to. One finger swipes are inferior in that words like 'paraphernalia' forces your finger to go left/right so much."

With the (optional) serpent cipher for disk lock and the 128-bit entropy generating passcode lock, nobody will snoop in on your data on the cloud. It'll be safe to use cloud backup then.
What's New In This Version:
● Photo Support
● Sound Recording Support + Sound Time Tagging
● Much Better Security Requirement Compliance
● Improved Ergonomics on the security lock.
Check out a video demo of the new keyboard below. Unfortunately, Apple has yet to allow alternative keyboards in iOS; however, it's possible that Widjaja could work with companies directly to integrate the keyboard into their applications.
You can purchase Hipjot from the App Store for $1.99.
