A chiclet keyboard for iOS? It’s in the works

That Keyboard Alpha

I’m usually not a sucker for themes and other elemental changes to stock iOS, but sometimes, a man just can’t deny a good thing when he sees it. That’s exactly the case with this new chiclet styled keyboard, which is currently in the works.

They keyboard, as you can see, is a thing to behold. It’s so simple, yet so elegant, and I want it right now. Unfortunately it’s not quite ready for release, but according to the designer, who posts on Reddit under the name RugratsReRuns, the keyboard may be ready as early as tomorrow.

Here’s how the keyboard, which will fittingly be named “That” Keyboard, will look when viewing the numerical set of keys:

If you’re interested in all of the intricate details of the progress being made, then visit the thread from the fine folks over at /r/jailbreak. I post there from time to time too, my username is, you guessed it, jeffbenjam.

Even better is the fact that it will be free of charge, though I’d certainly be willing to drop $0.99 for it. What do you think? Would you be willing to use this uber-stylish keyboard on a day-to-day basis?
