Cliff Kushler is the inventor of T9 Keyboard technology, and now he has another revolutionary technology that will make texting even easier. It’s called Swype is as simple as tapping on your touch screen and sliding your stylus/finger to all the letters of a word and lifting after each word is finished. It’s smart thanks to a built-in 65,000-word dictionary that corrects obvious spelling errors. If there are alternate options, a word menu pops up. A nudge upwards will capitalize the words, and a wiggle will allow for double letter entry.
This will make many users lives easier. The technology was developed with Windows Mobile, the tablet version of XP and Vista, and Surface in mind, but the iPhone could really use it. Kushler says he can type 55 words per minute using it. Everyday users may not fair that well, but it will still be easy to use.
