ai.type is one of the first keyboard apps available on the App Store for Amazon’s Kindle Fire. In August of last year, ai.type paved the way for third party apps on this platform. With the new release of ai.type’s version 3.5 for Amazon’s tablet, all of the app’s latest features are available and create the most user-friendly, helpful and personalized keyboard for Kindle users.
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.
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.
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.
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.
