iOS 8 release
Apple plans to release its iOS 8 near to the end of this year and after the release of iOS 8, ThemeBoard will be available on the App Store for the users to download and enjoy custom designs. The themes submitted by the designers will not be merely for the purpose of gaining exposure to the user community but the designers will be allowed to fix prices for every design and the designs will be available as in-app purchases allowing the designers to make profit out of their custom designs.
Taphive has already started accepting designs from prominent developers of Apple community. Taphive cofounder added that Apple does not provide many common features in the keyboard by default so Taphive developers had to add features like auto-correction and word suggestions.
Asem Hassan the cofounder further said that they want the designers to release their own keyboard without having to do much of the coding therefore Themeboard provides designers with a default template so the designers have only to upload their design on top of it and rest of the work is done by Taphive.
Irrespective of searching for individual designs, the users will also be able to download pack of designs based on popular themes. Some of the Themeboard designs will unlocked for the users only after they install the app.
