[prMac.com] Bay Area, California – Independent developers, Peter and Benita Schontag are today proud to announce the release of the EZ ABC Keyboard 1.0, their custom keyboard for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0. EZ ABC Keyboard displays all of the standard letters, numbers and symbols on three individual screens, thus making them easier to find and use. The keyboard is presented in an alphabetical layout instead of the traditional QWERTY format, in order to make it easier for users to intuitively find the correct keys.
Easy three-tap access to all characters on the keyboard also aids in entering text, numbers, and symbols more efficiently. Users can return to the alpha-numeric keyboard after entering punctuation characters with no effort on their part, as use of the punctuation keys will automatically return the keyboard view to the original alphanumeric keys after punctuation is entered.
New users in particular will find the EZ ABC Keyboard a more intuitive method of entering text than the standard QWERTY keyboard. The alphabetic layout of the keys will help relieve the frustration of new users who are more apt to think of text entry in alphabetical terms, instead of the old-fashioned traditional keyboard layout.
“We wanted to make it easier for users to enter text, numbers, and special characters, so Benita and I designed the EZ ABC Keyboard for ease and efficiency of use,” says app developer Peter Schontag. “The keyboard is laid out in alphabetic order, as opposed to the traditional QWERTY layout, and this will lead to faster and more accurate text entry by users, especially first timers, such as children.”
* Letter keys are in alphabetical order, which allows users to intuitively find the keys, and facilitates its use in education
* Letters, numbers and symbols are arranged on three screens, making them easier to see and touch on both devices
* Mathematical signs are located near numbers for math use
* The punctuation keys return the user to the first screen after being tapped, enabling quicker text entry
Another highlight of the EZ ABC Keyboard is the inclusion of all mathematical keys (such as: “+,” “-,” “/,” “x,” etc.) on the same keyboard screen as the numerical keys, allowing for more efficient entry of mathematical equations. Users can easily access all mathematics-related keys on one screen, while other characters are only a tap or two away.
We have strived to make the EZ ABC Keyboard a must have app for users,” says co-developer Benita Schontag. “By including the most used keys on the same screen, I believe we have come up with an app that many users, whether they’re first-timers or seasoned veterans of the iOS world, will recognize as a useful tool for their iOS device.”
