Thumbly 1.0 review: A one-handed alternative iOS keyboard

Brian Beam | Aug. 6, 2015
Like many people, I oftentimes hold my iPhone in one hand and type with my thumb. This was actually fairly easy to do on the smaller screens of the older iPhones, but as screen sizes have gotten progressively larger, that practice has become more challenging. And unless you have particularly large hands, typing single-handedly on the iPhone 6 Plus seems practically impossible; at least not without Thumbly Keyboard, a $1 alternative iOS keyboard by Ronald McLaren.

Bottom line

For a 1.0 product, I think Thumbly is a great start towards a convenient solution for people who prefer to type on their iOS devices with one hand. More so, I think it has the potential to be especially helpful to those who are forced to use their devices one-handed due to mobility issues. For that reason alone, I recommend that everyone download the app and help support the developer in making Thumbly even better.
