Our Review

From the minute I got this app I was amazed. I love braille and to be able to type using a virtual braille keyboard is simply fantastic. The initial price of free isn’t bad and the ability to get additional functionality for a low cost is even better.

If you are a fan of braille and typing virtual braille this is a must have addition to your app portfolio.
