14-year old develops iPhone typing app

Fourteen-year old Canzhi Ye of San Antonio, Texas has released Easy Typing 2.0 — an update to his productivity and comfort enhancement app for iOS.

Easy Typing is intended to facilitate more efficient typing on the iPhone or iPod touch, featuring a large, full QWERTY keyboard with key size twice that of the ones on the iPhone's default keyboard, taking advantage of all available space on the iPhone and iPod touchscreens.

Easy Typing also adjusts key sizes based on frequency of use, includes commonly-used punctuation such as .",?!' on the main keyboard, plus a secondary keyboard includes numbers and maths symbols. Users can also export to email and sms with the touch of a button, and take advantage of the the app.'s simple default copy paste and auto capitalisation

The iPhone/ iPad touch default keyboard can be frustrating to some users, especially ones with big thumbs, who may find that typing a simple email, SMS, tweet, or Facebook status will take minutes.

New features in the version 2.0 update are that you can now post a Facebook status directly, tweet directly, and updating Tumblr directly from the app

"Easy Typing has made typing a lot easier for users of the iPhone and iPod touch," said young Canzhi Ye. "This new update provides more uses for the more efficient typing. Users can now keep their online social networking buddies updated by Tweeting, Facebooking, and Tumblring directly from within the app. Also, I would like to genuinely thank all of my customers for giving Easy Typing a try, and providing very informative feedback and suggestions. I want to reassure users, current and potential, that Easy Typing is in active development, and updates are currently in the works."
