BlindType, the Next Big Thing?

There’s a new keyboard on the block and its name is BlindType. As the name and suggests, it’s very tolerant to inaccurate typing. It’s not meant for blind people, but for blind typing. This could be the biggest typing breakthrough since Swype. You can even type without a visible keyboard. BlindType recognizes where you touch the screen and corresponds with the letter that would be there.

The BlindType team is working on both Android and iOS versions, though it’s unlikely a 3rd party keyboard will be approved by Apple. We’ll keep you posted as best we can.

What do you think? Would you use BlindType on your Android device?

    Well BlindType is a replacement software keyboard, but it’s one with a little twist. As the name might suggest
