Microsoft Hub keyboard lands on iOS for power users

Microsoft‘s latest app for iOS is a keyboard meant for getting work done. The Hub Keyboard, which launched earlier this year on Android, offers direct integration with Office 365 and a few other tricks.

Microsoft bills its Hub Keyboard as a clever way to multitask from within a single app. A built-in search feature lets you scan for Office documents and share them with other people, or just see a list recently viewed files. You can also use the feature to search for contacts saved to your phone or in Office 365.

The app is still missing a few features already available in the Android version, possibly because of Apple’s own imposed restrictions. For example, Hub Keyboard for Android can show you a list of text recently copied to your keyboard, while the iOS version only lets you paste the last thing you copied. A built-in translation feature is also absent from the iPhone app.

If you’re interested, you can grab the Hub Keyboard for iOS via the source link below. It’s free, but you’ll need an Office 365 account to really take advantage of everything it has to offer.
