This iOS Keyboard Finally Lets You Draw Your Own Texts

App developers have been going wild since iOS 8 finally gave us the ability to install third party keyboards, but this might be the most fun: it's called DrawType, and it lets you sketch responses right in your texts.

For 69p, DrawType gives you access to a very simple colour and pen palette right in your messages. You access it just like you would your Emoji or any other keyboard, except instead of a grid of options, you get a blank canvas. Once you've drawn a response, it copies the image to your clipboard and lets you paste it into the response box. Simple functionality — after all, you could doodle and copy/paste with any other drawing app — but the integration with iMessages is excellent.
