MultiTap Text Brings Back Numeric Keypad, Lets You Text Without Looking Once Again

If there’s one thing that I miss from my old Nokia cellphones, it’s the simple but efficient T9 typing system. I don’t know why Apple insists on packing so many tiny buttons on the iPhone with the QWERTY layout when the numeric keypad works just fine for many of us. That’s why I’m interested in the MultiTap Text app.

As you can see MultiTap text uses a virtual numeric keypad, with buttons that are big and easy to tap. You can send a text message or an email from within the app itself. You can also copy the text manually if you prefer. It defaults to having key clicks turned off, but it’s definitely better to have them on if you plan on touch typing. Unfortunately, you can’t use it to reply to messages from within Apple’s Mail or Messages app, and have to use copy and paste for those situations.

MultiTap Text is now available from the App Store for $0.99 (USD). It’s not as good as having physical buttons, but I really do wish this becomes a built-in option for iOS.
