Speed Texting on Android: ThickButtons by Seth Weintraub @FortuneMagazine June 17, 2010, 2:41 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons ThickButtons is another way to increase your texting speed and accuracy on Android. I wrote earlier today about Swype, a new way of texting. Swype’s method of sliding instead of tapping is pretty effective but requires a radically new way of thinking. If you want something a lot easier (both to install and use) have a look at ThickButtons. The idea is that it anticipates what combinations of letters you are likely to use and makes those letters bigger as you type. Therefore you are a lot more likely to strike those letters, meaning the typing is faster and more accurate. ThinkButtons 0.6 is free at the Android Market if you do a search. Thanks for the tip.
