It really doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of phone you have, banging out an epic text message or email using a virtual keyboard is never a good time. For anyone who’s ever experienced a tragic case of thumb fatigue, ShapeWriter’s virtual keyboard may let you stay in the game just a bit longer.
Instead of slowly and painfully tapping each and every key individually, why not drag over each key to quickly form a word without ever lifting up your finger? Well, such is the concept behind ShapeWriter — a concept that is surprisingly well executed.
The ShapeWriter keyboard works in any text field, and most of the time does a great job determining what word you’re going for. The app also gives you a selection of other possible words based on your swipes, and lets you easily change words with a tap.
After just a bit of practice, I was well on my way to becoming a ShapeWriter pro. While I do my best to refrain from writing novel-esque emails and text messages on my mobile phone, I certainly know where to turn when the time comes when I can’t avoid it.
