About this app

STOP HUNTING FOR TINY FAKE KEYS! Embrace the capabilities of your touchscreen! Experience the freedom of typing with gestures!

DOTKey is:
Fast: Up to 65 words per minute or more!
Sight-free: Look at WHAT you are typing, instead of the keyboard you are typing it on!
Comfortable: Automatically calibrates to your hand-size and positioning!

FINALLY! - True touch-typing for your touchscreen!

--- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS/INFORMATION ---
When you install DOTKey on your device you get two things:
1) The DOTKey keyboard - which you will type with
2) The DOTKey application - which you will use to learn/practice DOTKey, and to configure settings.

If you are new to DOTKey you will want to practice before making it your primary keyboard. Use the in-app practice feature to get up to speed in as little as a week. When you are ready to make the switch simply enable DOTKey as you would any other 3rd party keyboard and set it as your primary keyboard. Please see the in-app menu item "Enable DOTKey" for more information on how to do this. For more information about DOTKey in general please visit our website at:

There is a learning curve to this app, but after some practice I found it to be highly... intuitive. I have big hands and kept wanting to extend my fingers like I do with a keyboard, but later realized the app will calibrate and respond to any hand/finger placement I find comfortable. I'm still progressing through the practice levels and hope to actually implement it with my computer in the future for fun. I do recommend reading the instructions for this app, it is confusing if you don't.

Great keyboard innovation that we don't realize we need. I've found that after several months of use, DOTKey feels intuitive. While it doesn't make a lot of difference with short messages, I've found it truly shines when taking extended notes, composing emails, or doing anything where accuracy matters. (One particularly handy situation is when writing programming snippets to help explain concepts and ideas to colleagues, which is very difficult to do with other on-screen keyboards.) I'm giving this 4 stars because I find the selection of special characters to be a little lacking, and miss some of the quality of life features found in other keyboards (such as first-letter autocapitalization, recently used emojis, and the ability to search for specific emojis)

Hi James! We are delighted that you are benefiting from DOTKey. We continue to strive to improve existing features and to introduce new ones as quickly as we are able. We can say that autocapitalization is coming, and we like your suggestions for emojis. If you have other ideas please email them to us at contact@dotkeyboard.com - Thanks!

So playing with this keyboard for about an hour after downloading, I can't seem to figure out how to get out of Cursor mode if I go accidentally into it. And when typing "Th..." it automatically gives me "The" when I really wanted a different word like "this" so I have to backspace. There's a few other small things that bug me a bit, but I can't word that... so maybe in another review later.

Hi! Get in and out of cursor mode by swiping up with your index and ring fingers. Tap the '?' button on the top right of the keyboard anytime to see hints for the current mode. As for the autocomplete behavior you are describing; DOTKey doesn't do this, we only give suggestions for you to choose, so this must be from the app you are typing in...

What's new

New In This Release:
* Support for accents! Please see the built in tutorial and/or hint sheet for more information.
* Rapid word suggestions - to select one of the three possible word suggestions you can now simply swipe left or right with the finger "beneath" the desired word.
* Inline suggestions! See DOTKey's best guess for the word you are currently or about to type inline. Swipe left or right with your middle finger to accept the suggestion, or simply continue typing to ignore it.
