INNOVATION AND DESIGN
We researched every keyboard ever made to further understand our problem. We read several academic papers on human linguistics to get to the core of the solution. Our goal is to create products that are both functional and beautiful.
After creating 100's of designs the eureka moment arrived. What if we grouped all the consonants together? What if we made a smart keyboard app that you could type with only 6 buttons?
Reducing the keyboard to only 6 buttons presented many challenges. Specifically certain combinations of vowels and consonants returned dozens of word options. After many months of hard work our engineers nailed the Prediction Engine within Fast Type for Android. Behind the simple user interface we use machine learning and semantic algorithms that learn how you type. This way our keyboard app will always suggest the words you want when you want them.
