New Keyboard ‘Typewise’ Claims 80% Fewer Typos

Typewise is a new keyboard that claims to reduce typos by 80% thanks to its hexagonal design. The developers invited me to test the app, and while there is a learning curve it does have a tutorial to follow. I haven’t given up the default keyboard though, but if you’re looking for an alternative I recommend you at least try Typewise out.

Typewise has been completely redesigned to provide an optimal typing experience on the smartphone. The layout was optimized for typing with two thumbs, because, according to the Cambridge study, 74% of users write this way and achieve the highest typing speed. Two space buttons placed in the middle of the keyboard allow these most frequently used keys to be reached as easily as possible.

Evidence Mounts: Apple's Butterfly Keyboard is on the Way Out

Evidence is mounting that the ill-fated Butterfly mechanism keyboard that Apple has been using in its notebook computers ever since the MacBook debuted in 2015 will eventually become history. AppleInsider has the goods:

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suspects that the [rumored] 16-inch MacBook Pro will be the first Apple laptop to shift [back] to a scissor mechanism …

Furthermore, Kuo is predicting that the entire MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines will migrate in 2020 to the technology.

Some think this is evidence of the subtle hand of Apple’s COO Jeff Williams.
