App Store Description

1. Overview
There is a Vietnamese keyboard on iOS. But it is not easy to choose a suitable vowel letter with tone mark. Because there are a lot of candidates. On Microsoft Windows there is a Vietnamese IME(Keyboard), but vowel letters with tone mark consist of 2 characters(combining characters), it seems that it is not mainstream in Vietnam.
This time we made a new type iOS Vietnamese Keyboard that focused on easily entering letters with tone mark(precomposed characters). I think you can enter Vietnamese text fun and rhythmically.
[One line Introduction]
• NguyenKey is a new type iOS Keyboard that supports Vietnamese learners.
[Points of this keyboard]
• It becomes easy to select Vietnamese letters with tone marks.
• As we arranged consonants and vowels separately, it becomes easy to understand Vietnamese words structures. (ex. head consonant + vowel + final consonant)
• We made it possible to refer to the northern dialect and the southern dialect on the keyboard.
