Adaptxt Smart Keyboard App Enables Android Users to Type Emails and Text Messages Quickly, Accurately and Succinctly

Features artificial intelligence and 103 custom dictionaries, including an industry-first SMS lexicon that automatically provides abbreviations such as lol, gr8 and every1

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Typing emails and text messages on a virtual keyboard is often an exercise in frustration as the software forces users to conform to it rather than the other way around. Two new versions of the Adaptxt smart keyboard app for Android smartphones and tablets eliminate that hassle by using 103 custom language and industry-specific dictionaries, as well as artificial intelligence that quickly masters the nuances of how each person writes.

Reviewers and consumers have spent the past year lauding the smartphone beta version of Adaptxt for simplifying and personalizing their input experience and avoiding the mistakes and unnecessary steps that are common with the native keyboards on Android devices. Extensive user feedback has been incorporated to create Adaptxt 1.0 for smartphones, which adds more than 12 features including single-touch Wikipedia definitions and toggling between languages.

Adaptxt uses artificial intelligence to identify the unique words and phrases that each person uses and then adds them to a personalized custom dictionary. Adaptxt is fundamentally different from – and superior to – traditional predictive solutions, which simply hunt for a match in a dictionary based on a predetermined lexicon, then automatically change what users type, forcing them to go back and manually correct the platform's mistake.

Adaptxt features 35 industry-specific dictionaries for professions such as finance, legal and medical, plus 68 language dictionaries, from Arabic to Vietnamese. The industry-first SMS dictionary provides more than 3,000 shorthand abbreviations – such as lol, btw, gr8 and every1 – to make typing text messages faster while keeping them from going over the 160-character limit.

These dictionaries complement the app's ability to learn each user's writing style, enabling a typing experience that's fast, convenient and consistently accurate. Adaptxt's other major features include:

  • Automatic text replacement lets you create one-touch shortcuts for phrases that you frequently use.
  • Language-specific keyboard layouts, such as QWERTY, QWERTZ, QZERTY, AZERTY, and a 12-key phone-style keypad.
  • A split keyboard in the tablet version.
  • Quickly switch between languages by dragging the space key left or right.
  • Post messages on Facebook and Twitter with a single tap directly from Adaptxt, eliminating the step of launching those apps to share an update.
  • The ability to use your messages and social network posts to learn words that you frequently use.
  • A "private mode" that suspends learning to keep words from being added to your personal dictionary.
  • Quickly and conveniently add and delete words from your personal dictionary.

"The beta version of Adaptxt for smartphones averaged a 4.3 rating in the Google Play store, but we weren't comfortable with anything less than perfection," said Sumit Goswami, KeyPoint Technologies CEO. "We incorporated a year's worth of user feedback to create a 1.0 product that blows away keyboard apps that are in their 2.0 and 3.0 versions, not to mention the stock keyboard apps that come with Android tablets and smartphones. Adaptxt sets the standard for fast, convenient and intuitive text entry."

The Adaptxt app and its 103 dictionary add-ons are available immediately for free from Google Play, Amazon and GetJar. Adaptxt 1.0 works with any smartphone running Android 2.1 or later. Adaptxt 2.0 works with any tablet running Android 2.2 or later.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
