Minuum keyboard now available to all Android users
Minuum is one of the more interesting keyboard alternatives to come out for Android recently. The idea behind the keyboard is incredibly ambitious. It doesn't just want to redesign the keyboard for our new touchscreen devices; it wants to be the keyboard standard for future devices including wearables. It has been in a closed beta for a while now, but yesterday it was released for all Android users.

The app is still considered to be in beta, but now it is a public beta. Minuum has been optimized for all Android screen sizes, and supports any version from 2.3.3 and up, so that means it should work on just about any device that exists. For this public release, the team has added a new tutorial to help new users understand how everything works. 

The layout takes up very little space on your screen, and the algorithms are pretty amazing as far as fixing errors, but it will take some getting used to. If you want to give it a try, the app will cost you $3.99, or it will be free if you were a Kickstarter backer.

Adding to wish list, will check out later. I like the idea, not sure if they nailed it though.

Ugh... Bought it and tried it for 2 full days and it's just a steep learning curve plus you don't have access to a lot of the fun emojis on SwiftKey. Not worth it IMHO.

I dunno, man... sounds like too much of a hassle for 4 bucks, throw out a free version with ads and I'll consider $1.99.

Nice idea but.... 4 BUCKS? THEY ARE INSANE! I like softfurryanus's idea (whats with your name) but until it can really prove itself as a good keyboard alternative, the price is kinda ridiculous.

maybe they should have a demo type environement, like release a free notepad type app that uses the keyboard, but if you want it for anything else then you gotta pay.
