LexAurum: I've gone from Swiftkey to Kii, but I hated that the keyboard would take up almost half the screen. Decided to try out Minuum, and so far I'm loving it. It takes a while to get used to, but now I can pretty much mash on the screen.

HOW MINUUM WORKS
Minuum re-imagines the keyboard by reducing a standard layout to a single line—a continuum of letters—letting you type quickly and accurately without needing large keys. We enable this by auto-correction algorithms that allow highly imprecise typing, knowing what you mean even if you miss every single letter.

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