  • SnapKeys announced today the beta launch of the SnapKeys Si solution. This is a premiere: the first invisible keyboard app, that strays away from the standards QWERTY keyboards. Behind this keyboard is a lot of research and a rich portofolio of patents.

    The purpose of the app is to use the functions of its 4 translucent keys to interact and comment on visual content in apps like Facebook, email, Search and YouTube. Snapkeys had a Guinness World Record for the fastest typed SMS and now they’re at it again, this time through simplicity, speed and accuracy for its new keyboard. The main idea is to use 4 translucent colored keys that are overlayed on the screen when you type. The keys are split into 4 tiles, one of them being a vowel and the other two being the most common letters you use daily.

    In order to input, you just press anywhere on those colored keys and when you need a certain letter that’s not visible, SnapKeys SI asks the user to tap between the 4 colored keys. Then the app predicts what word of phrase you’re trying to create and chooses the ideal characters. The suggested word that you’re creating appears above the 4 tiles and allows you to confirm or dismiss the choice. If you swipe to the right you’ll get new word suggestions.

    More details can be found in the video below and the private beta is available here.
