Custom Keyboards - The Promises and Perils

Custom keyboards never really lived up to their initial hype, did they? We'll dive into why this is - from the unique challenges of debugging an extension to the yawning moat that is today's standard of autocorrect - and we'll ultimately ask the question: Is an app like Bitmoji really the limit of custom keyboards - a tool which can change the way users interact with every app on their phone?

My name is Brian V. O'Toole, and I've been coding for about 2 years now...almost exclusively on an app called TimeStamp Keyboard ( I wanted to make a tool to help me in my main profession - as a TV producer. My most recent credit is Executive Producer / Showrunner / Camera for "The Laws of Jaws" on Shark Week 2019.
