[prMac.com] Los Angeles, CA - Christopher Lozinski has released EmailFaster, an email writing application using an innovative gesture keyboard.
EmailFaster has big easy-to-find buttons, laid out like a familiar cell phone keyboard. To enable typing lots of letters using a few big keys, EmailFaster uses gestures. Instead of just tapping the buttons, you swipe them, left, right, up or down. Sure you can tap the buttons, for example to get the letter in the middle of the key, but you also swipe the buttons. To type an 'a', you swipe the 'abc' key to the left. To type a 'c', you swipe the 'abc' key to the right. To type a 'b', you just tap the 'abc' key.
There is also a qwerty version of the keyboard. Just turn the phone upside down. The 'q', 'w', and 'e' keys are merged into a 'qwe' key.
While this app pretends to be a keyboard, it is also a complete text editor. You can hide the keyboard to scroll the text up and down. You can set the audio feedback level. In silent mode there is no audio feedback. In quiet mode, the keys click when pressed. In loud mode, you get audio feedback of the letter you pressed.
The big advantage of the EmailFaster keyboard is that it has large easy-to-use buttons. Apple should replace their regular keyboard with this keyboard.
