Virtual keyboard for hires devices

For Pocket PCs there are some programs, but not so many for Palms. But now Palm owners can use their high-resolution screens (320x480 px) as a keyboard. The member "Scott" from the Tapland forums wrote the small program for Zodiacs. They work on Palms too (T|T5 simulator), but not with Sonys (UX50 simulator).

Now write how fast you can write!

Don't the Tungsten have a keyboard view already?

(Granted, this one looks nicer.)

Hello,

Palms (Tungsten) have a SMALL virtual keyboard. You can only use it with the stylus. You can use this one with your fingers.

And I forgot: If it looks in the picture as it would be the standard small keyboard, this isn't so. There are TWO pictures, both have 480x320 px (HiRes)

Hi,
I can only confirm that it makes typing way easier in VersaMail. I am a betatester from the first minute, and always liked it so far. Just click on the images to enlarge!

Somehow or other I came across this prc a while back, and it was cool for the most part. I don't really like being limited to only 1 or 2 lines of text, I feel like I'm stuck on a 1985 word processor machine. Also it conflicted with my fitaly if I didn't remember to manually disable the fitaly keyboard, since fitaly is a hack on the Zodiac and conflicts with many things. (grumble grumble)

I don't notice a significant increase in speed or ease of use, but I'm sure I'm not the average user. Fitaly is still the fastest mode of text input for me. I used another thumb-typing program called... oh what was it called? Damn. Anyhow, it was basically a T9-modelled application where you typed the "phonekeys" onscreen and it would recognize words, and it even had a "complete the word" button so you could quickly enter longer words with only a few button presses.

That program was impressive to me, though the interface on this new one (like a Franklin organizer, eh?) is nicer looking of course.

Peace,
-tank.

Hi,
thank you for pointing this out! However, we will soon have yet another program doing this. Competition always is good!
