Ginger Releases New Keyboard App with Proofreading, Emoji and Swype


Israeli startup Ginger, which develops software solutions, announced the iOS 8 and Android launch of Ginger Keyboard. Ginger Keyboard is the first keyboard to offer advanced writing tools, including live as-you-type proofreading, alongside standard and advanced keyboard features like word prediction, autocorrect, emoji (ideograms or smileys) and swype typing (virtual keyboard for touchscreen).

The app, available for free download in the Play Store and App Store, offers a fun, productive keyboard experience that helps people quickly write high-quality, accurate text in any application.

Founded in 2008, Ginger Software specializes in developing mobile keyboard and writing enhancement apps that enable people to quickly write high-quality, accurate messages. Ginger has developed the NLP platform (natural language processing), which is the foundation for its advanced text analysis applications. This platform lies at the core of all of Ginger’s mobile, web-based and PC products, providing English corrections, editing options, context appropriate synonyms, translations that match the context and original meaning of the content.

Through its one-tap access to the Ginger Page writing app, Ginger Keyboard provides users with powerful writing tools such as a proofreader capable of identifying contextual spelling and grammar errors, rephrasing, contextual synonyms, definitions, translations and a text reader. By using the keyboard and the writing app together, users will now be able to enjoy a comprehensive keyboard writing experience.

Additionally, Ginger Keyboard offers speed boosting features like adaptive word prediction and Stream (swype-like typing) alongside advanced personalization features like a “build your own theme” tool. The app comes equipped with dozens of ready-made, free theme options as well as the ability for users to design their own unique keyboard themes from scratch and then share them with their friends.

All of Ginger’s products leverage the power of Ginger’s technologically advanced text analysis engine. The engine uses patented NLP technology and enables advanced, contextually-aware proofreading and editing that surpass the capabilities of standard proofreading software.

“The introduction of our custom keyboard on iOS 8 and Android strengthens our position as a major player in the mobile keyboard market, ” said Maoz Shacht, CEO of Ginger Software. “Ginger Keyboard is also the only mobile keyboard that offers sophisticated “as you type” proofreading, which we see as the next evolution of the mobile keyboard user experience, exponentially increasing users’ productivity on the go.”

Ginger Keyboard originally launched in the Google Play store, where it is one of the most popular apps in the productivity category.
