I got this app because I am a college student in the sciences and use my ipad to take notes and do homework. If I’m taking notes via the attached keyboard, I’d like to quickly be able to have access to the Greek alphabet or mathematical symbols but everything in the app is very disorganized and I literally have to detach the keyboard to have access to the symbols, because the on screen keyboard doesn’t automatically pop up like it does with emojis or any other keyboard. I probably won’t be using this app very much.
Followed the very limited instructions to add the special characters keyboard in settings. Then...nothing. Supposedly you can get the special characters by pressing the globe button on your keyboard. Hmmm and where would that be. Not on my keyboard.
Waste of a buck!

Might be a waste of money, because when I open the app it says to add "special chars" to key board so I did that and went back into the app and said the same thing. I don't know what to do or how to get the app started
Good UI but missing key symbols like ƒ
Where is ƒ ? This keyboard has good UI, love the favorites feature. But I need that! Please add it and I will update to five stars.
Woo Hoo !!

I'm a mathematician. Been using another very good app to copy and paste appropriate symbols into my text. That app had only some of what I wanted. This one has a lot more, and they come up on their own keyboard with no copying and pasting required! ᵀʰᵃⁿᵏʸᵒᵘ. Has a lot, ᵦᵤt nₒt ₐll.
I really like this keyboard. It has a lot of standard symbols that I really wish I had. That I have now... ©℉¢$⸘❣➟½⅓⅔¼¾ along with shortcut buttons. There is one very important feature missing a SPACE bar! To make spaces you have to exit out to the standard keyboard and go back to where you were at. Please add a space bar, thank you. Also, would love to see music symbols added. Add a space bar and I'd give you ⑤✬ˢ❢
What a DUD
Good idea, but it is soooo slow. Will be deleting it as soon as I finish this review.
Gave it 2 stars in case it is because I have iPad 2. However, my iPad is up to date with software so don't know if that matters.
This keyboard has a lot to offer. For the business person, scientist, or if you just like to add fun to your messages, you can find it here. Need brackets, arrows, or to tell someone the temperature where you are, you can do it in a flash. Lots of foreign currency symbols, math and scientific choices too. Play cards, dominos, chess, or love your horoscope, you can send a message with these symbols. I love the fractions, I found several that are often used, but I can also make my own. There is a a place for the symbols you have used most recently, and if you use some often you can save it in favorites, and you can remove them too. I just scratched the surface so give it a try, you won't be sorry. Extra bonus- Great service from the designer who will answer any question or issues that you may have too.
