Fast Keyboard is a text editor that gives you a special keyboard and amazingly high productivity.


On top of the standard iOS keyboard, you will get two rows of additional keys, including numbers, symbols, unicode symbols, frequently used words, and even email/article templates.

And the text you wrote links to Dropbox, Facebook, and Tumblr.


Enjoy writing. And Fast don`t lie.

Theres no 3 on the keyboard I therefore have to revert constantly to the iOS keyboard this is supposed to replace I really like the app but what the heck is going on with the 3                Like it but
all of the extra keys that i want plus seamless integration with dropbox the ability to drop text into a message or email without cut and paste is the cherry on top                just about perfect
Cant use since iOS 8 upgrade Native keyboard just covers it    Native keyboard covers it
The extra set of keys is what the apple keyboard lacks Fast keyboard is better due to thisThe auto linking to drop box and file manager is awesome because otherwise apple is so restrictive and does not allow us to move this files to a desktop or smartphoneFantastic app                Extra keys the plus point
I use it every day to jot notes and to run my HTML scriptsupdate changed rating from 5 to 1 star due to mysterious bug that erased all of my file tags    works for me
I use Faster Keyboard for anything I write on the iPad or iPhone that will be more than a 2 sentence message Its fast simple stable and lets me have multiple documents in progress I too wish that Apple could adopt Faster Keyboards more efficient keyboard layout                Best Text Composition App Available
Nice keyboard when app is open but no Info on how to get it into text message or email Whats the point       Where is keyboard
Please make this compatible with the side by side app I guess I understand not being able to use it in any other app but it should certainly be able to be used with apps from the same developer Please work on this as it would be a great addition          Could be better
I am Just becoming familiar with Fastkeyboard but right now I would give it six stars Ive been wishing for a keyboard like this for a very long time                Just becoming familiar
Pointless Not a keyboard Only a text program which can export to a couple of apps    Its not a keyboard its a text box
That said switching the top row of characters proves difficult using swipe I propose that a color toggle switch be placed on the top left of the extra character keys so as to allow one to toggle through the character sets as necessary as oppose to having to swipeFor a more aesthetic design the vertical functionformatting keys in the grey area can instead occupy one row atop the symbol keys and there should be only one row of symbol keys as oppose to two Or this could be a user optionLast but not least a night mode would prove usefulno one likes to look at a bright screen late at night          Shockfull Of Symbols
Awesome Just needs more userfriendly settings page             A great app
Love the keyboard Im able to write my knitting and crochet patterns using it on iPad Air 2 while sitting in my recliner I can design write and then put it in dropbox to do more on my Mac computer The way to share it with dropbox is a little confusing When you click the arrow the first thing is dropbox You would think this would share it Nope So I clicked Other Apps on the Share dialog box and save it to drop box that way I can even use the microphone and dictate I highly recommend this app                This app is so useful
As my previous two reviews indicate I love this app It is nearly perfectBut now I have a feature request better tag management I would happily pay for a pro version with this functionality or pay an inapp fee to enable it Note to new users start by tagging your files from the beginning youll be very glad you did months or a year or two laterI finally figured out how to use tags as sort of folders to group my by now dozens and dozens of files Now I understand that I can add tags by clicking on either the info icon in the file view or in edit mode by clicking on The Save icon and clicking on the little tag link at the bottom of the popup dialog box But now I need to be able to select multiple files in the File view so I can tag them a whole bunch of them in a single operationTwo related tag management featuresthe ability to sort or manually order tags as they are listed as tabs at the top of the File view Filtering the list of tags shown would be beyond my wildest dreams The ability to edit a tag in the File view to either rename it globally or delete the tag thereby removing it from all the files to which it has been applied Deleting a tag would not otherwise change any of the tagged files However the deleted tag would be removed from the tag list in the File viewI only feel the need to request these features because this app is so wildly useful I use it so much for so many things that I have to organize all the files Ive created I just didnt realize how many many files I have used this wonderful app to createPlease save me from myself                Request for feature
I cant edit the text to make it bold italic or underlined since I want to Needs another update just to add those settings          Its a great app but
Does not work with other apps although you can export the text into Apple messenger I expected that I could use this app when I was doing texting on iOS This is not the case While not useless it has limited use       Ok just ok
Some apps deserve to be bestintheirclass this is such an app My fingers are not sized for IPhones small keyboard this app provides me with essential tools for correcting all the errors Im almost certain to create in text It provides great ease in editing our errors Then when the text is completed its easily copied pasted into its intended use SMS email note etc                WONDERFUL Indispensable
Its not a keyboard app You can not replace apple kb w this Pointless app    Waste of time
This app does everything you wish your Notepad and iOS keyboard would doArrow keys easy macros customizable buttons you name it its here even Dropbox integrationI didnt know I couldnt live without itWish the dev team for this app would make an iOS keyboard Id pay doubledigits for thatAs someone else said just download this already then make sure to read the onepage help file it has additional cool things in itTake a moment to set up your buttons and enjoy this fantastic app                Has all you want and need wish it were an iOS keyboard replacement
For the length of time that I have had this app Im surprised that I am only writing a review now and Im really sorry that I didnt write it sooner This app is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC I truly love this app I use it constantly What this app is capable of still ABSOLUTELY blows my mind I use it constantly Im amazed that it isnt an app that needs to be bought its that good Please keep up the phenomenal work It is MORE than worthy of the five star rating and the like for Facebook that I gave it                Fast Keyboard Universal Text Editor Review
Doesnt open in other apps so it has very limited usage    pretty useless
No go with Mail or Text aps on iPad Dumb       Doesnt Work with all apps
I bought it for the keyboard which I still really likeWay better than iPads defaultI also bought it for the Dropbox backup Seems to work fineHowever Ive had some problems with figuring out why some files are sent to Dropbox while others are not Some show as not in Dropbox on iPad but DO appear in Dropbox on my laptop Windows 8 I would suggest adding highlight colors and fontsize changes             Nventiveguy
I was writing a script and accidentally hit the clipboard button and everything that I wrote was erased I worked so hard on it Plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz fix this    Stupid
The only thing that this app could be improved with is to speak into the microphone the name of the symbols and have them appear on the note page                Best notetaking app for iPhone
I thought this might speed up my code writing on the iPad because of the extra rows of keys But every time you tap those secondary keys there is lag Enough lag to annoy Its still better than digging into the second and third modes of the standard keyboard but the lag dos kill this app a bit          Too much lag
Although I love the keyboard Instructions are poor I lost some important work by hitting the wrong key Apparently no backups    Too easy to delete your work
There is a glitch that doesnt let me make more draftsplease fix it and it will be a million star game GOOD GAME PEOPLE             Glitch
I cant figure out how to sync it to my iPod I linked it to Dropbox but I need it to be simple like installing emoji I really want this keyboard    Plz add tutorial on installing
One of the text editor I was looking for it gives me a wonderful keyboard to edit my text So clever                Fast Keyboard and easy
Wonderful                Wonderful
Copy and paste people Very functional Lets you save as different file extensions You need this if you know how to use your devices and computer Its not a keyboard app Dont write a review if you have no understanding of why the app was designed                People dont get it
Love the idea but is there any way to make it your default keyboard It isnt listed as an option in my settings and no way I can see to contact developer with questions Issue not addressed in website nor in app description Still should help on iPad but would help more with texting and quick emails on phone if was my default keyboard Wish I waited to upgrade          I wish
We just want a basic text editor that can use cloud storage I get pop up keyboard extensions I dont want and cannot get rid of without losing my place in the document Who wants thatDropbox interface works sorta but confused and confusing The documentation help file and web tutorial which does nothing of the sort are charitably weak multiple references to a blue arrow which does not exist and how do I make the keyboard extension disappearlike I said meh And the ads on the free version are obnoxiously intrusiveWell its cheap enough I guess it does make and edit txt files and will store and retrieve them from Dropbox so 3 starsPotential unrealized Make it simpler and more elegant          meh over reaches and underwhelms me
What is the point if it only works within its own app Im sorry but its not useful at all    Doesnt work with Mail Safari or any other aps
So whats this about Oh I get it Its a text creator editor And a great one I was hoping that it would apply to other apps but knowing that it doesnt going in allows me to give 4 stars             Good app
Probably the best plain text editor Ive tried And since it synchs with Dropbox it is a handy way for me to get ontheroad notes into my PC                Works Well
Quite surprised at how much it does People who type a lot would definitely appreciate the useful features                Very good actually
This is a most excellent application Ive been looking for a simple text editor for a while now and this is a very good one                Excellent
Although good for hiding fanfics on my phone haha sorry it could use some work Id like if there was an undo buttons so if people accidentally paste text they could get their original thing back Also bold italic and underline tools would be a good addition Finally I think another good suggestion would being able to change the title of works anytime          So so
Why wont the Ipad keyboard go away when I open this app Help Im technologically challanged          iPad keyboard
I did not realize how great FastKeyboard is until I read the help fileLike I some of the other reviews missed many great featuresThere are more than 3 rows scroll you can custom add keys to be what you want even sentences you can upload to email more etcIt is difficult to get apple files to other systems The best feature is you can auto sync to Dropbox folders This has become my goto app for iPadREAD the helptxt file to learn more                Read the Help File
I will say it took me a little time to figure it out but once I got it I love it I went to the dark side once and got the samsung galaxy 4s loved the keyboard and editing cursor but hated everything else So getting fast key on my iPhone makes me very happy                Amazing I wish apple had these features
Simple and very useful set of apps             Simply great
Finally I way to type subscript and superscript If I try to copy superscript numbers from the internet they normally just paste as regular numerals but this app has special subscript viewable on iOS I dont even care if this is only visible on iOS which it might not be                Yes
I love this but there is one thing I wish it had The ability to replace every instance of one word with another word Like the replace in Notepad for PC             Needs something
It would be a super great if it was possible to use this keyboard as default Maybe you will make this happen on your next update we just need to wait and see Keep the good work I am very optimist thank you for your effort Next you get a five starPs you should give the opportunity to consumers to contact you in some way for support             Food idea
Unfortunately the designers obviously dont need money as long as those cheesy ads are raking in the millions while trashing up the environment Too bad I give it 5 but with the addsdelete                GOOD ENOUGH TO PAY FOR
I can take quick notes but I cant accomplish simple asks like underlining bolding etcMy biggest problem is with Dropbox I cannot upload to Dropbox even though I authorize access This feature worked 6 months ago when I last used the program          Good but not great
It only works using that app cannot use it for anything else    Does work
