Using your iPhone one-handed can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to message someone. Microsoft’s incoming keyboard may solve that issue, as it’s rumored to have a nifty one-handed mode.

The keyboard docks to a corner of your screen, so you can swipe a thumb around rather than reaching for letters or numbers on-screen — and it supports swipe gestures.

Said to be more like a clone of the Windows Mobile WordFlow keyboard, the only real difference is this one-handed docking mode.

A bit niche, but if you’ve got stubby thumbs and a big iPhone — you might fall in love.
