We were tired of having to open the calculator app only to solve a simple math calculation like 15*13, and then switching back in app to paste the result. We created BabelBoard so that users would finally have a smart keyboard, one that would allow them to perform simple calculations and translations from the keyboard, without needing to open other apps and copy/paste text. Our target user is someone who may not be familiar with a certain foreign language, but still needs to use that foreign language often in day-to-day life. This will quickly simplify the processing of communicating in a language that one does not understand. We are particularly proud of the in-line math calculations that we were able to perform and having a new, working iOS8 keyboard that replaces text with a double-tap of the space bar.
