Speed Up Your Typing

Slide IT Keyboard App for Android. Do You Work On The Move?

Speed Up Your Typing

Admit it Ladies and Gents ??  Are you like me ….. Not really a fan of the onscreen keyboard on your Android- be it an Android Smartphone or Tablet…… for doing your smaller text work on the move quickly ? Do you need to work on the go often?

Help is at hand……With some great apps !!!

For me the answer working on the go for email in particular on my Android Acer A500 tablet initially was the Swiftkey Tablet X app…… which has quite startling word recognition accuracy/word prediction……….. fewer key taps + more speed = practical ease of use ! .(Check out my post). At last I felt young again happily typing away using my 2 thumbs. Many of you will love it too.

A colleague however recently introduced me to a “swype” style keyboard (in my case, Slide IT keyboard) …..which I personally  now use , which allows me to drag my finger quickly across the letters. I Love, love love it and always feel lost without it now! I highly recommend it too.

Check out the manufacturers video below

It will not take you long to learn how to use it and SlideIT, does makes it quick and easy to write on the go using one-handed text entry……….enabling you to dramatically improve writing speed .
Instead of entering text by tapping on letters, SlideIT keyboard eases texting by sliding a finger along the letters, while the words “magically” appear on the screen ( smart predictions ).  SlideIT is a great practical  way to write Email, send SMS or just to chat with your friends…while on the move.

Incidentally folks a great little feature in SlideIT that I use quite a lot for a short e-mail and SMS is a built-in voice recognition function. Whilst this has got some mixed reviews online as a feature …speaking personally I have found it in fact very helpful for short mails and I believe some of you may like it too.
