Type Nine Keyboard - The ultimate typing experience

Please note: Type Nine currently supports 34 languages listed at the bottom. Make sure your language is supported before getting Type Nine. If your language is not supported please write me, and I'll know which language to work on next.

Swiping:
Type Nine is the first keyboard ever to combine a keypad layout with swiping. Typing by swiping is a seamless experience and once you've picked up the movements, you will type faster and more effortlessly than ever before.

Multiple languages at the same time:
Type Nine suggests words from multiple languages at the same time. No need to switch keyboard to type in a different Language.

VoiceOver:
If you're using VoiceOver, Type Nine will be a pleasent improvement to your daily typing.

Remembers your words:
If a word is not in the dictionary you can type it manually with ease, and Type Nine will remember it for you. Every time you write a word, Type Nine will adjust its behavior so that the most used word is suggested first.

Easy to follow tutorials:
Getting started with Type Nine is easy. Everything is put together in an intuitive manner, and if you want to start using all the efficient hidden gems, there are tutorials to explain how to do that.

Themes:
Type Nine features a handfull of different themes to suite your mood or taste.

Emojis:
All the iOS emojis with easy access. Your most used smileys are easily accessed by a single swipe.

Delete so sweet:
The backspace button in Type Nine is nothing short of a miracle. By swiping left you delete an entire word, but by swiping slowly you can precision delete much better than simply holding down backspace. You can even undo what you deleted or cut it to a different position by swiping down on delete.

Moving the cursor:
No more cramps in your fingers trying to move the cursor to the correct position. Simply swipe left or right on space to move the cursor an entire word at a time, or swipe slowly to position precisely.

Resizing for big screens:
If you're using an iPhone 6 plus or an iPad, you can easily resize the keyboard to a better size for one-handed typing.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The one small annoyance I have is with the backspace key. You're supposed to swipe on it to delete more than a character at a time, but obviously you can't do that when VoiceOver is on, and unlike with the iOS stock keyboard double-tapping and holding on backspace doesn't cause it to continue deleting characters.

I haven't spent much time with this keyboard yet, but I feel I might be faster with it than with the on-screen keyboard. I don't think you could be as fast on this than if someone who's extremely skilled at braille screen input, but I think it's worth a look. After using the resize feature of the settings to make it taller, I'm finding the typing experience to be quite pleasant.
