Microsoft's Hub Keyboard, which was previously only available on Android devices, made its way to iOS on Thursday.
What makes Hub Keyboard different from most of its competitors is its focus on sharing content, specifically Microsoft Office content. The keyboard also allows you to quickly share the text contents of your clipboard (in other words the last text you copied) and the information stored in both your Microsoft and iOS contacts.

Aside from its differentiating bells and whistles, the Hub Keyboard also features word suggestions as you type. This feature now almost feels like a prerequisite for becoming a good keyboard due to the fact that even Apple’s default iOS keyboard includes this capability.
The Hub Keyboard is one of Microsoft’s two known keyboard projects for iOS. The other project, Word Flow, is yet to be released on iOS in a stable form although it has been in beta since January.
