ABOUT OUR NAME
Some people call us “Minum” or the “Minimum” keyboard but an easy way to remember the Whirlscape™ Minuum™ Keyboard is to think of a continuum of letters taking up minimal space.

UPD: oh no, haven't noticed it's been abandoned for two years. A tragedy! 😩 | Love the concept, but if I use one-line layout (rooted to the bottom, size customized to not reach the screen's edges) and then try switching language (both with a long tap on the space key or with the swipe to up-left), the keyboard goes edge to edge, and stays that way for a few taps. Please fix it, Samsung a5 2017. Otherwise a fantastic, unique keyboard that I'll gladly buy the moment this minor annoyance is fixed.

Even though development is long over, the app still works great on Oreo. The autocorrect works flawlessly, better than expected, with very few hiccups. The one line letter layout is extremely intuitive, to the point that I can practically type with my eyes closed. Most importantly, I can finally type with just one thumb comfortably. Performance is good too. I had issues with default gboard constantly freezing, but this keyboard has been done so far. Would give 6 stars of I could.

LOVE this keyboard even after only a few hours of getting used to it! Super innovative and useful! Even besides the core feature of having a new keyboard layout, the (currently experimental) bonus buttons include text selection and edit buttons like copy and paste! I haven't seen such a feature in other keyboards except swype, and I use the feature all the time. I have a Samsung Note 9 and initially had the same issue other Samsung users reported about the navigation bar, but it went away.
