TouchStrokes Updated To 1.5

Niemeijer Consult has released a new app for OS X, TouchStrokes. TouchStrokes is a virtual keyboard app designed to negate the need for a physical keyboard. The update now features support for both Classic and OS X. According to Niemeijer Consult:

Niemeijer Consult today announced a doubling of the value of TouchStrokes(r) virtual keyboard for touch screens, server management and graphic tablet users.

TouchStrokes 1.5 now not only runs natively on Mac OS X but also on Mac OS 9. All of this in a single executable without the need for any special extensions. TouchStrokes beats the competition in terms of functionality and typing responsiveness.

TouchStrokes provides a fully-functional virtual keyboard that works by drawing a keyboard image on the display and allows you to type characters into any normal application using a mouse, touch screen, graphic tablet, trackball, head pointer or other mouse emulator. It works seamlessly with all standard Mac OS X applications (including those running in the Classic) allowing you to type virtually anywhere a hardware keyboard can be used.
