I've been using iOS since iPhone 1 and now am on iPhone 5.

Hence, at times I find bunch of Android things confusing and unfamiliar.

So, in addition to launcher's that work well for iPhone users, I'd like to find suitable way to make the keyboard comfy/ match an iPhone user.

Is there any launcher app that behave like Iphone?

One of the primary interactions one has with the phone is its keyboard which comes into play with every app i.e. messaging, notes and so on.

Few times I considered moving to Android and just felt out of place using Android keyboard.

I do not like the Swype keyboards etc as well.

Given that Android supports variety of custom keyboards, I was hoping that someone replicated the exact "typing feel, interaction & look" of iPhone iOS keyboard on Android for people who are coming in from the other side.

I do not really care for the "look" but would like to have "it feel" as if I am wearing the iPhone "glove" that fits well.

I'm not just looking for color and shape, but "behavior" & "responsiveness" and full emulation/ copying of iPhone keyboard behaviors E.g. How the iphone letters of "pop up above the key" around when pressed.

I'm sure there are other intricate behaviors that someone with a fine eye or UI/UX insight would be able to observe and then maybe replicate/ hack towards Android.

  • Are you asking us to find/recommend such a keyboard? – Death Mask Salesman Jun 14 '16 at 12:28
  • @DeathMaskSalesman - 1. Is it possible? 2. Does it exist? – Alex S Jun 14 '16 at 13:06
  • Please note that recommendations like Is there an app for X are off-topic here (see What topics can I ask about here? for details). For where your question might fit better, you might want to look into Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? and Where to ask for app recommendations?. Also see my app-list on Keyboards & Input Methods ;) – Izzy Jun 14 '16 at 14:42
  • How about we take this not as a software but a hack or mod to make it more like iPhone. I've been reading Qs on this SE that ask about ROM or Launcher that is more iPhone like. – Alex S Jun 14 '16 at 14:56

    Hello all. Just a quick reminder that comments aren't for extended discussions, and this site isn't a venue to try to convince people they are making bad life choices. If you have an answer, post it; if you don't, there are plenty more questions to try. – Dan Hulme Jun 15 '16 at 7:48

Admittedly, I haven't tried this one, but I found it by doing a quick Google search. The screenshots look decent and it appears as though it will do the job.

If you're after the newer style, this one also seems alright:

  • @AlexS I very much doubt such a keyboard exists. And if it did, it would undoubtedly result in legal action from Apple. – Dog Lover Jun 15 '16 at 6:46
  • the beauty of android is that it's open, so hoping that someone/ 3rd party creates it but is too small or unknown for Apple to sue – Alex S Jun 15 '16 at 6:50
