Experimentation with Keyboards
I fell in love with swipe-style keyboards on my iPhone; they are fast for word insertion…most of the time. But they fall back to hunt-and-peck when you need to enter punctuation. I had some ideas to bring the 'touch' back to 'touch typing'. I started by building a prototype to collect data.
And yes, it looked a bit like blood, so I changed it to blue after a while.
This research showed that the biggest problem was often not the words—but deleting mistakes, editing and adding punctuation—for which I invented some solutions.
