SnapKeys Si Invisible Keyboard: an alternative to QWERTY

Now that touch screen has become a standard feature in most of the tablets and the cellphones, the concept of the touch screen QWERTY keyboard is being questioned. More efficient texting options are being explored by developers in the industry. One such developer is the startup company SnapKeys which has redesigned the touch screen keyboard for touch screen tablets and cellphones.
SnapKeys has developed the new touch screen keyboard building upon ‘predictive text’ which is widely used in touch screen phones. The application launched by SnapKeys attempts to revamp the typing experience for the users and uses only four buttons with three letters each and an invisible spacebar and backspace.
After becoming acquainted with the location of the 12 letters on the 4 visible keys, the user can type without looking at the keypad and the rest is taken care of by SnapKeys Si. The new keyboard is styled on the basis of the fact that the utility of the keys not displayed on the keyboard is about 18 percent.
Thus, through predictive texting, the new keyboard has cleared up a lot of space on the screen enabling more space for surfing and screen view. Also, once the users get used to the new keyboard, the entire set of keys can be set to invisible for a complete view of the screen. (more…)

Choose to see, and NOT be seen – “Invisible” status

At times, we can all sympathize with the author, Danielle Steel’s quote, “It’s hard being visible, so I’ve made myself invisible.” In case you ever want to be there (from a distance), and just observe, Nimbuzz understands.

With the new “Appear Offline/Invisible” login option, your status will be changed to offline/away automatically, without any extra clicking.
