Microsoft has today released its Hub Keyboard onto the iOS App Store, bringing its powerful features to the iPhone for the first time. Microsoft released its keyboard for Android back in February, and today those carrying iPhones can also get in on the clipboard pasting, document adding, text translating action.

Perhaps the most useful of the features the Hub Keyboard brings to the table is its clipboard management. With the Hub Keyboard enabled, users have access to a clipboard history that vastly improves upon the single item clipboard that iOS is capable of offering as standard.

On top of the awesome clipboard features, Microsoft’s Hub Keyboard has two less impressive strings to its bow in the form of Document and Contact support. Contact-wise, users can search for their contacts and then paste in details like their phone number or email address, while the support for documents allows them to attach documents from OneDrive or SharePoint. We expect fewer people will make use of those two features, but the fourth feature Hub Keyboard boasts is much more impressive.

That feature is the ability to have Hub Keyboard translate text that has been typed into a different language. Translation isn’t easy, so this feature alone is one that could get plenty of use by plenty of people. Having text translation built right into the keyboard also makes it super easy to use, so if you ever find a need for typing in a language other than your own, Hub Keyboard could have a place on your iOS device.
