Pretty interesting and useful app. Noticed a few minor glitches while trying to use -- like words getting automatically capitalized and being unable to undo that. But intriguing tool.

This is brilliant! Seems like you're calling a lot of API's for the functionality of the keyboard. How are you making sure the keyboard is not eating up RAM + CPU and also just draining battery life? That's my only concern with this app!

@mamo_abenezer Thanks a lot. Yes we have integrated lots of public APIs of third-party services. Reboard is designed with memory efficiency and modularity. When you are using the keyboard, there is no other background processing happening. At a time, only one action takes up memory if its being used. The moment you turn off the command mode (by tapping the blue command key), any action that was most recently used is removed from memory.

Love the concept of this app. Nice work. Evernote integration would be huge. The splash/welcome sequence is a bit annoying after seeing it 2/3 times during setup. Also, seems like I keep getting error pop ups when trying to integrate Slack, even if it says it's connected. Still not sure. App keeps telling me to restart iOS even though I've done it twice. Also, I received a pop up request for a review before I even had the chance to use it. All in all, a bit of an annoyance to setup but I have high hopes its worth it. Keep up the good work.

@alexputici Thanks a lot Alex. Evernote will be great with ReBoard. Will be integrating new actions soon. Please check in keyboard Slack should be working. Ignore that error message. We'll remove it in the next update. App expects the user to enable the ReBoard in settings app after showing the welcome screen. May be that sequence can be improved. And that restart is required because iOS 8.3, 8.4 have a bug which doesn't show a newly installed keyboard in keyboards list in Spotlight and other places. We already submitted an update to Apple for review. That should improve your experience with ReBoard. Thanks.

@jeet232 Awesome! I'm loving the app so far (especially the Dropbox integration). When you add Evernote I'll surely be over the moon. Again, nicely done.

@alexputici Thanks a lot Alex. Did you know you can list all recently modified files in Dropbox action by typing only ! after the command key? Evernote and others are also coming soon. And If you like it, please rate it 5 stars in the App Store. Thanks again.

Hi Everyone! Thanks for featuring ReBoard here. If you are in WhatsApp on iPhone, how do you schedule a calendar appointment? By switching to Calendar app. Right? What if you could schedule an appointment from within WhatsApp itself? Wouldn't it save you lots of time? Meet ReBoard - The Revolutionary Keyboard. Its a system wide keyboard for iOS which lets you do lots of such tasks from within the keyboard window. You can schedule a calendar appointment using natural language input without leaving WhatsApp or any other app you are using. It will be saved in iOS Calendar app automatically. "project meeting friday 11.30am" "call steve in 2hrs" You can do these without leaving an app: 1. Share Dropbox files 2. Search local addresses & view maps 3. Do calculations 4. Create iOS Reminders 5. Lookup Wikipedia 6. Add tasks to Wunderlist 7. Chat in Slack 8. Search web 9. Search & download images 10.Search and play music 11. Many more... ReBoard goes beyond typing, enabling the user to stay in the context and still perform other tasks. We launched it yesterday and the response so far has been amazing.

This is a keyboard as a platform and the possibilities are limitless. We would love to know what you think about it?
