TouchType – More accurate text imput

Android phone showing SwiftKey software

Text entry into your Google Android smartphone may not be a problem for you; but you may find that the screen size of smartphones paired with your fingers does not make  good combination and you in fact end up making a few mistakes when entering data.

Most of the newest Android smartphones will have predictive text which guesses what you are typing and should make speed of entry better.

London based TouchType have announced a new predictive text technology known as FluencyMobile which the company says will enable users to write 50% more efficiently than if using other solutions.

Predicting a third of words without a button being presses and nearly 85% of words within two characters according to TouchType CEO, Jonathan Reynolds.

It also corrects typing errors and reduces high input error rates made on small mobile keyboards.  It even goes as far as adding in apostrophes and inserts accents for non-English character entries.

Due to be released for Android very soon, you can read more HERE or register to test it HERE.
