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.

Have been using minum for years. Don't care about or use the minimized keyboard. it is just the best one I have ever found. I recently got a new Samsung A52. The Samsung KB didn't cut it for me. I couldn't wait to put Minum on my new device. It's strength's for me are floating keyboard, resizeable size , and easy access to features like emojis and microphone. It has never failed me, and compared to some others that I tried prior to Minum, it is not intrusive, quite responsive, and has no lag !

I first got this keyboard on the iPhone when it was initially released and I loved it. when I switched to Android I didn't realize it was available there. But I got a smaller, cheaper Android and wanted a small, lightweight keyboard and found Minuum again. I love it! Very responsive, very quick to learn your typing style. still one of my favorites. The only feature I would like is the ability to remove the gesture shortcut pop up because I just want it to be a little cleaner. Otherwise perfect!

I LOVE this keyboard. It's great overall, and I don't even minimize it much. That said, it hasn't been updated since 2017 and seems to be an older, forgotten project. It's now consuming extra battery as it is "designed for an older os version" (per Android battery analytics on my phone). I might finally, after over 7 years using this keyboard, have to go find another keyboard that looks, functions, and feels better than the stock one.
