Look Mom, one hand: A cus­tom key­board

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION -

Are you a one-armed ban­dit on your phone? For those who still type mostly with one thumb, there’s a key­board out there for you: Thumbly.

This cus­tom key­board fans the fa­mil­iar QW­ERTY lay­out from the bot­tom cor­ner of your phone, so you can type with one hand easily.

The app works for right­ies and left­ies, and the am­bidex­trous can switch be­tween the two with a sim­ple tog­gle.

Sure, it’s a niche prod­uct. But if that’s the way you type, it’s an in­stant er­gonomic up­grade.

And if you want to type the nor­mal way or if you lend your phone to some­one, the nor­mal key­board is only another tap away. Free, for iOS de­vices.
