Minuum soft keyboard makes compelling case for 3rd party keyboards

While the Windows Phone keyboard is pretty great and has been lauded by many, there is still a lot of room for innovation, as the above video shows.

The Minuum keyboard improves your touchscreen typing by reducing the size of the keyboard, leaving more room for content, and relies on auto-correction, while allowing users to continue using their muscle memory from their QWERTY keyboard.

Reducing the keyboard to one dimension allows all kinds of novel uses, including its use by motion, allowing one to type by twisting a ring or bracelet for example.

More about the project can be read here.

With such innovation coming from 3rd parties, do our readers think it’s time for Microsoft to open up the Windows Phone keyboard API? Let us know below.

Thanks Sarkis for the tip.
