    This is really good for me. I am 70 and my fingers aren’t quite as nimble as they used to be. The spacing is perfect, but when I am 90, you may have to widen the letters a little more! Thank you!!!

    Unfortunately this is one way only and just possible for mails. Even a native iPhone app couldn’t use the built-in apps provided by Apple.

    This works great! I typed a 3 line mesage without a single error! Now, it’s saved on my homepage for quick access. Thanks!

    It does work, although the vertical kb is absolutelly fine for me too…

    Is there a way to use this app for a reply to an email I get or only for the drafting of new emails?

    It only works for new mails.

    I would love to find an app that provides T9 texting I learned using a traditional number pad. I could do it one handed and could often text without looking. I’d love a bigger keyboard or horizontal keyboard for texting at the very least.

    An app for writing SMS messages isn’t possible at the moment. Wide Mail Keyboard basically uses a “mailto:” URL which opens Mail when clicked. There is no equivalent like “sms:”.
    On a side note: a T9 texting app would have to be a native app as it uses a rather large database (considering bad transfer speeds while on the go). Loading such a DB in Safari on the iPhone wouldn’t be a good idea I guess.
