ProType 1.1 for iPad out now!


Our long awaited ProType 1.1 update has just hit the App Store. This update is literally yours, as it contains most things you have asked us for, since we released 1.0 end of November 2014. Highlights of this release are a reworked key layout with larger overall key sizes, emoji recognition, keyboard click sounds, the ability to skip whole words using Option + arrow keys, as well as brand new keyboard layouts for our Czech and Danish users.
