A.I.type Keyboard, yet another Android keyboard

Is this the Swiftkey killer we’ve all been waiting for? The company producing this keyboard says so, I can’t say for sure, but it is pretty awesome. A.I.type autocorrection and word suggestion appears to be on par with Swiftkey X or better but as always, this is probably up to your taste.

Or, as the company itself describes it:

An intelligent keyboard with revolutionary context-sensitive text prediction, auto-correction, auto-learning, undo/redo/navigation capabilities and cool (and customizable!) skins (WP7, Windows 8 and iPhone for instance).

Here are two videos, the first one introduces the A.I.type keyboard and the second one compares this keyboard to the iPhone keyboard.

Here’s some addition features of A.I.type keyboard:

  • Suggests your next word.
  • Completes your current word.
  • Corrects your spelling as you type.
  • Auto-corrects your typos when you hit the spacebar (context-sensitive)!
  • Automatically learns your common words and style (MyTypetm)
  • Supports unique skins (Windows Phone 7, iPhone, large buttons, Gingerbread and more).
  • Allows skin customization – colors, background images etc.
  • Includes a layout for undo/redo/copy/paste/navigation and more.

Last but not least, their are two different versions of this new keyboard. There’s a phone version, also available as a trial, and a tablet beta. Both download links can be found below.

Tears for Tiers: A Look Inside Verizon’s Imminent Tiered Data Pricing

I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Verizon’s plan to adopt tiered data pricing. The blogs have been buzzing about it, readers have been flaming about it, and trolls… well… they’ve been trolling about it. I can’t say I’m surprised about the move, considering I’ve been a guinea pig to corporate greed for many years now. I’m often asking myself: “Why do I allow these companies to continually rip me off?” And, like most people, I just sit there and take it. Sure, we’ll complain about it, but do we ever do anything about it? I mean, if Verizon is such a bastardization of a company, why don’t we just switch carriers?

    A.I. Keyboard doesn’t even begin to compare to the accuracy of SwiftKey. I’m wondering if the folks behind A.I. Keyboard even turned on the rapid typing mode in SwiftKey when they did their comparison. With the precise mode on SwiftKey isn’t any better than the stock Gingerbread keyboard. SwiftKey knows what I’m saying even when I type complete gibberish and it doesn’t even need a cloud server to do it. By comparison, A.I. Keyboard has difficulty understanding my typing even with the cloud setting turned on.

       When
      we compared ourselves to Swiftkey X we tested our text prediction capabilities
      against theirs. This is why we used their precise mode. To make it fair, we
      typed (on both keyboards) character by character without typos and misspellings,
      so we did not test the accuracy of the keyboard (which is another test we would
      be happy to run and publish) but the quality of the text prediction and word
      completion.

       

      We
      used NO CLOUD PREDICTION for the tests. Only on-device capabilities. Moreover,
      we reset both keyboard’s learning model / personalization before the tests.

       

      As for
      punctuation – currently the only punctuation A.I.type predicts is comma (other
      punctuations will be added in the next releases), but we scored Swiftkey each
      time it predicted punctuation well, no matter what symbol it was (of course).

       

      Please
      take a look at the following test summary (also published by AndroidGuys):

      You are
      welcome to repeat the tests and see the results for yourself.

       

      Is it
      possible that Swiftkey works better for you because it has already learned your
      words and style, while A.I.type is new to you?

       

      Is it
      possible that you tested auto-correction capabilities while our test referred
      to text prediction? We’ll be happy to plan an auto-correction test with you and
      publish the results in the blog.

      Best regards,

    Funny, I hadn’t realized we’d all been waiting for a Swiftkey killer. Where’d you get that idea?

      I’ve been waiting for a Swiftkey Killer. Swiftkey is great but it always bothered me that it only shows 3 suggestions at a time. And in my opinion, the prediction in A.I. type Keyboard is even better than SwiftKey. And that’s saying a lot.

    I used A.I. Keyboard for a few weeks. At first I loved it and all the customization it brought with it. But then I started noticing it would miss easy auto correction words that were only off by like one letter. For instance, I would type phine, and it wouldn’t correct it to phone. That being said, it’s very close to being amazing. I just got a little frustrated when it wouldn’t correct easy words I misspelled.
