iKnowU's Keyboard App for Super-Fast Predictive Typing Available Now on Google Play

iKnowU's patented technology means typing on mobile and tablets has never been easier or faster - up to seven times faster than conventional keyboards

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- WordLogic Corporation (OTCQB:WLGC), the predictive intelligence technology company that creates patented solutions for the mobiles, tablets, and desktops today announced the launch of its brand new iKnowU Keyboard app for Android smartphones and tablets. The iKnowU Keyboard is the result of more than a decade of research and development, creating the most advanced keyboard app available. The app intelligently predicts not just words and phrases, but complete sentences as you type - allowing you to add them with a simple gesture. Not only that; iKnowU actually learns your writing style and preferences as you type, thanks to a learning algorithm that makes the text prediction more accurate the more you use it.

Tests have shown that using iKnowU can be up to seven times faster than using a conventional smartphone keyboard: that means less time and effort, and a productivity boost for business users. The iKnowU app is available to download from the Google Play store for $1.99, with a free time-limited trial version also available. The first iKnowU Keyboard app supports US English and is designed for North American users: more languages will be supported soon.

"We've been developing and patenting predictive text technology for over 10 years so we know there isn't another keyboard app on the market that can match what iKnowU does," said Mark Dostie, CTO of WordLogic. "We're really excited to launch our first Android app. Anyone looking for a simple and incredibly effective keyboard app will love iKnowU. In terms of accuracy, speed and ease of use there's nothing else that can touch it."

Some of the iKnowU keyboard's unique and patented features include 'WordChunking(TM)', a method of intelligently predicting words based on letters as they are entered as well as chaining them together into accurate phrases while preserving screen real estate and 'Gesturing(TM)' which provides a unique and effortless way to choose words and phrases. Every time the user enters information, iKnowU is learning the user's words, phrases and style of writing and dynamically adapting its predictions to further increase accuracy and speed of entry.

Key Features Include:

--  WordChunking(TM) - Displays possible predictions allowing you to find
    the word or phrase you're looking for quickly and accurately 
--  Word and Phrase Prediction - Create whole sentences and phrases in a
    fraction of the time that you'd normally take to type them 
--  Gesturing(TM) - Enter words and phrases with sub-second input resulting
    in blazing fast entry speeds with full accuracy 
--  Autocorrect - Type fast? No problem our market leading word/phrase
    corrections will fix your spelling errors. 
--  Re-correct -  If auto-correct gets it wrong you can swipe across the
    keyboard to delete it OR choose the green suggestion from the top and
    iKnowU will learn it as well 
--  AutoLearn - iKnowU learns and monitors your style and use of words,
    adjusting to better predict what you want to type 
--  Cloud Sync - Make sure all the words, phrases and writing style
    information learned about you on one device is synchronized to all your
    devices using the iKnowU app 
--  Smart learn - Predicts names of people & places, email addresses,
    website & more 
--  Right or Left Handed Preference- iKnowU adjusts its actions and displays
    based upon the setup for either right or left-handed 
--  Multi-keyboards & Themes 

Note to editors:

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available.

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless Thingies, will discuss and demonstrate how devices and humans can be integrated from a simple clust...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...
