Are you a parent or teacher with young children just learning to read and write?
It’s such a precious time, as they unlock the keys to a lifetime of learning via books, games and apps.
And you want to give them the best head start you can.
But what could be more confusing when they’re just learning their ABCs, than a keyboard with the letters all scrambled up?
Q, W, E, R, T?
Z, X, C, V, B, N?
Traditional computer keyboards are guaranteed to slow your child’s progress.
They make no sense at all.
Shouldn't it be as easy as ABC?
Just like the song.
Meet Dextr – the finger-friendly alphabetical keyboard that makes perfect sense for young, learning minds.
We’ve arranged the keys alphabetically – exactly where your child expects them to be (there’s only one memory trick: where we've placed the "Z" key).
This makes Dextr super fast to learn. In fact, they've already learnt it.
Plus we’ve highlighted and aligned those key building-blocks – the vowels – into a single column.
The most common letters are now the easiest to find!
Dextr makes forming words a breeze – its bigger keys have been specially designed to suit nimble little fingers, thumbs and hands.
* The buttons are fingertip sized and fingertip shaped
* And they’re spaced one finger-width apart
* So thy’ll never hit the wrong key again
* With adaptable layouts for all texting styles – one finger, one thumb, two thumbs… even one-handed
* It even flips for left-handers!
DEXTR’S SMARTER TOO:
Allow your child to create words and phrases more efficiently than ever with our handy and intuitive word suggestion tool. Just type the first letter and Dextr helps them finish the word. And it learns as they type – suggesting the next word in their sentence before they've even typed it. This makes learning to form new words and build sentences even easier.
You can also load a full English dictionary (G-Rated!). This lets Dextr pick up your child’s spelling mistakes and offers intelligent corrections.
Plus! Dextr ABC Keyboard gives you:
* Even more function keys – including a back arrow – to make corrections even easier.
* The most useful punctuation right there on the home screen
* A full set of number and math keys
* A full set of punctuation and symbol keys… even smileys
KID TESTED AND KID APPROVED
We’ve tested Dextr extensively with children of all ages, and all learning abilities.
They love it!
And so do their parents and teachers.
In performance tests against traditional QWERTY keyboards, Dextr wins hands down:
* Because the letters are easier to find, kids could type sentences twice as fast with Dextr compared to QWERTY
* And they made half the number of mistakes
* And their speed and accuracy kept getting better over time
Dextr really is as easy as A B C !

We take your privacy very seriously. Dextr ABC Alphabetic Keyboard does not learn your password and never collects or sends your private data. Dextr also provides a Private Mode option which prevents the keyboard from learning what you type.
The warning message you see upon installation that says Dextr ABC Keypad may be able to collect ‘all the text you type, including personal data like passwords and credit card numbers’ is a standard Android message. This same message pops up when you activate any third party keyboard application. You will see this message for every other keyboard application as well.
