The T9 keypad layout might be unfamiliar to the smartphone generation. But for the older folks, they learnt to type SMS using the T9 keypads. Now, Type Nine for iPhone brings the T9 experience to your iPhones. You can get Type Nine – Fast & easy typing with a T9 layout for $1.99 from iTunes App Store.
Type Nine – Fast & easy typing with a T9 layout app brings the nostalgia of the T9 keypad to iPhone. The app comes with a tutorial on how to use the keypad, in case you are new to the now nearly extinct T9 keypad. With large keypads and predictive text, Type Nine for iPhone combines the old with the new, allowing you to type messages quickly enough with less focus on the screen. The predictive text suggests potential words rather than automatically completing it for you. At present, it can be used in 34 languages at present, with multiple language support based on how you arrange the language priorities. The keypad is artificial intelligent enough to keep track of your most typed words, and suggest that more often depending upon your typing habits. The app also comes with some nice features such as the cursor function, wherein by simply dragging on the ‘0’, you can move the cursor around the message. Unlike the old T9, the punctuation marks get a separate page here. So you don’t have to mash the 1 key until you accidentally pass the one you’re after, and have to go all the way around again.
The look and feel of Type Nine – Fast & easy typing with a T9 layout app is beautiful. The app comes with loads of smileys so that you don’t need to change keyboards to access them. If you are using the large sized iPhone 6/6+, you can easily resize the keyboard to size for one-handed typing.

The cursor function is intuitive. A separate page for punctuation marks comes handy, so does the smileys. Last, but not the least, the keypad is beautifully designed as well.
