Octopus Keyboard for iOS is reminiscent of Blackberry 10?s on-screen keyboard

RIM's virtual keyboard running on the BlackBerry 10 (Credit: Brian Bennett/CNET) An iOS developer is working on a new keyboard that takes some cues from RIM's virtual keyboard in BlackBerry 10. Dubbed Octopus Keyboard, the solution is designed for owners of jailbroken iPhones who want to get more functionality out of the virtual keyboard built into iOS. According to iDownloadBlog, which first reported on the keyboard, the software should enhance a user's ability to quickly type out a message, and can work with a host of languages. However, the key feature is a learning function that runs in the background and determines what the user typically types out. Based on that information, words are displayed above a letter. If the user wants to add the word to the message, they can just hold their finger on the word and swipe up to make it happen.
