If there’s a controversial issue in the app industry is how users should input text on mobile devices: swiping or typing? QWERTY, ETAOI or Snapkeys proposal? Prediction engines work precisely on that direction: since current text input systems aren’t perfect, prediction help users get the proper word faster and more accurately. Both mobile keyboards developers and users have been unable to innovate on this issue. Our fault is being too typewriter-minded. Will Walmsley, CEO and & Lead Designer at Whirlscape, states that “we can do better than this” in this video launched to present the Minuum project on IndieGoGo. How? Watch it out:
Minuum Keyboard IndieGoGo’s campaign is ending on June 2013, so don’t expect a final Android/iOS version earlier. Probably its beta version will be sent during the summer to campaign contributors and beta testers. If you believe in the project and you want to be on that list, help the guys, they’ve done a great job with this. Do you picture yourself typing this way?
