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

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
