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

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

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.
