In 2012, developer Zack Dennis introduced the concept keyboard for touch screens, which uses the minimum number of data entry points. Now ASETNIOP is available as an application for iOS and Android, but so far only for tablets – adapting to other formats of gadgets is not far off.
On the virtual keyboard ASETNIOP only 10 keys, 4 with letters for the fingers of the right and left hands, and thumbs rest on the space and Shift buttons. When the user starts entering text, the system on the fly recognizes a combination of symbols, searches for analogues in the dictionary of the most common words and reassigns the keys so that it remains to poke in the desired syllable and end the word. It is very similar to the standard autocorrect, but the implementation of ASETNIOP is incomparably more flexible and friendly.
The system can and should be customized for its own printing style, in order to achieve an ideal prediction of the user’s actions. In the keyboard ASETNIOP there are special stenographic combinations of symbols, auto correction and templates for phrases and terms. Experienced users, having mastered, can type text at a speed of up to 100 words per minute with a minimum of errors.
The bottleneck of the conceptual virtual keyboard – all algorithms have a rigid binding to the specific features of specific languages of the world. So far, the support of English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish and Turkish has been declared. The cost of the application in the Apple App Store and Google Play is $ 4.99.
