An AI-Powered Keyboard With Advanced Search Functions

Mobile keyboard provider Tappa has integrated with OpenAI's ChatGPT technology to enable smarter writing functions from its device.

One of the key benefits to this custom productivity app is an on-keyboard search function that marketers can monetize through the dedicated mobile keyboard.

Tappa’s Software Developer Kit (SDK), when offered with a mobile app, allows marketers to create a branded digital mobile keyboard to download and offer to customers.

The goal is to provide an enhanced experience not only through search, but through functions of autocorrect, spelling and grammar.

The integration of OpenAI’s GPT technology into the keyboard supports the ability to craft messages, provide translation, and offer direct and conversational answers to queries, making the time spent on the mobile phone more productive.



Consumers are spending more time on mobile devises, browsing, buying, and looking for locations of stores to shop online and in person.

U.S. adults have decreased use of PCs and tablets by more than 10% since 2019, while increasing their use of mobile phones, according to Insider Intelligence. The analyst firm also shows that to date in 2023, users spend one hour per day more on mobile phones vs. PCs and tablets.

Beyond social media, shopping and messaging, consumers spend more time accessing enterprise applications and other work-related technologies from their mobile phones. 

The mobile keyboard also enables the integration partner to add brand and store assets into the keyboard, similar to search features.

For example, if a game developer were to integrate Tappa’s mobile keyboard, users who download the Tappa keyboard would be able to access their game store and leaderboard as well as receive game-playing insights directly from the keyboard. 

The integration with OpenAI is the first of several that Tappa expects to announce in 2023. With research from GoodFirms finding that productivity apps are the most common category of apps used by 97% of users, the new functionality being rolled out by Tappa in 2023 will make the company’s mobile phone keyboards more indispensable to consumers who are already opening them on average 80 times per day.
