Keyboard apps and extensions are plentiful on the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store. Once upon a time, they were a novel installation, especially on Apple’s iOS platform. Now, however, there seems to be keyboard apps of all shapes and flavors with many throwing in a USP to try and differentiate.

So, with that in mind, how about a keyboard app that lets your phone do the typing thanks to highly-accurate and powerful text scanning and recognition? There’s an Anyline Keyboard app for that.

A lot of keyboard apps and extensions focus on quick character entry via things like swipe-to-enter functionality or advanced and intelligent prediction algorithms and libraries. The trick is to try and allow a user to say what they need to say with time efficiency and extreme accuracy. Some do it very well. Others fail rather miserably.

The Anyline Keyboard experience takes a different approach by offering a standard keyboard typing experience alongside a powerful scanning feature that ships with five different scanning modes for varying text strings and types.

If you have ever needed to enter your passport number, driver’s license number, or a Wi-Fi password provided to you on a card by your ISP, you will understand the pain of flicking between letters and numbers. Between switching between uppercase and lowercase. Only to hit Enter and get the painful red message telling you that you made a mistake. Before you allow the red mist to take over you need to ensure you are calm and collected in order to enter it accurately. Anyline Keyboard removes that pain by letting you quickly and accurately scan that text and have it immediately entered on your behalf. Quickly and with perfect precision.

But what about trusting an app to scan your passport number or any sensitive information we hear you ask? Well, that’s a darn good question and one that needs to be addressed. Anyline Keyboard does all of its work on the local device and doesn’t require an internet or cellular connection to send data off to a server to be processed and scanned. The company calls it “clever coding” on the app’s behalf but it’s really standard practice in this increasingly privacy-conscious world that we live in. The upshot is that whatever you scan stays on your device and is only shared with the web sites, apps, or services that you are choosing to enter it into.

If you are consistently thrown and put-out by the fact that you have to enter complex strings of text to access Wi-Fi networks, as part of recovery codes for your sites and apps with 2FA activated, or even to sign onto prohibited websites or domains, then the Anyline Keyboard app/extension for iOS and Android is something that will definitely save you from repetitive entry.

As a recap, it’s entirely free to download and use. It comes with a variety of scanning options that work alongside its standard keyboard entry functionality and it focuses heavily on data security and privacy by processing all entries directly on the device.
