ai.type Announces Version 4.0 for Android

After the anticipated release of version 3.0 and the success of the new Theme Market feature, ai.type has taken the Theme Market to the next level and included a number of exciting new features in its version 4.0.

Auto Custom Key and Emoji
Perhaps the most anticipated feature on verion 4.0 is the auto custom key and emoji. This enables users to peronally customize the keys in the bottom keyboard row of the app. For example, if you frequently use the smiley emoji, you can program it to permanently be on the bottom left side of your ai.type keyboard, so you can reach it quickly and easily.  This was one of the most requested features by ai.type users because it really tranforms the keyboard to more personalized and user-friendly.

Background Image from Web
Now you can choose the background image of your keyboard directly from the web. Instead of searching for that perfect photo for your keyboard theme and then saving it on your phone, you are now able to search directly from the ai.type app. ai.type also allows you to crop the photo yourself so you can quickly and easily choose your favorite image as the background theme for your keyboard.

Theme Market
What can users expect when they upgrade to ai.type on their Kindle Fire? Perhaps the most exciting new feature ai.type brought this year was the launch of the Theme Market where users can upload their own keyboard themes that they create themselves and share them with others. Then, users can rate each other’s themes and download from more than 15,000 themes that other users have crafted from around the world.

Emojis
The Auto Emoji feature enables users to add emojis according to context. This helps save time and adds a bit of each user’s own personality to each message. In addition, over 1,000 emojis are now available to select from, so you can always choose the right image for the right message. Now, there is also an easier way to scroll through the emoji section with ai.type’s new scrollable emoji layout. Instead of clicking through each section tab, you can easily breeze through all of the emojis and choose the one you want quickly and easily.

New Design
Android’s new Material Design offers responsive animations and transitions, padding, and depth effects such as lighting and shadows. ai.type has also updated the layout of the keyboard itself to include a one-handed typing feature. This feature moves the keyboard to one side of the tablet so that it is easier to reach all of the characters and type seamlessly with one hand.

Languages
ai.type offers over 50 languages in the new version 3.5 including Simplified Chinese. The new version allows users to input Chinese characters by entering the pinyin of the character and then presents a list of possible characters with that pronunciation. This feature has been in the works for quite some time now and our developers are excited about its launch, as well as the reach of a much larger audience that speaks and types in Chinese all over the world.
