ShapeWriter iPhone App

ShapeWriter offers iPhone users an intriguing new way to ‘type’ on their phones. Instead of having to “click” each letter, lifting a finger up with each button press, ShapeWriter can track a finger across the iPhone’s screen and figure out what they were trying to spell. Unfortunately, users aren’t able to use this new modified keyboard outside of the ShapeWriter app, but it may be good for note taking for users who find it faster than traditional hunting and pecking.
