The main reason for slow typing are the mistypes that result from small keys. WRIO keyboard honeycomb layout changes that, the keys are large and easy to press.
Writing on a smartphone you can only use two fingers concurrently. There are placed two space keys that represent the base position of your thumbs or fingers, reducing the distance travelled between keys.
In smartphones you can swipe up, to capitalize the letter, eliminating the shift key. Swipe right, to start a new word. Or swipe left to delete a letter.
There are placed the most used special characters right on the main layer. All others are also just one swipe away.
WRIO Keyboard will adjust its virtual layer based on your typing behavior. With this there can be further reduced any typing errors.
The team promise that they will develop a personalized and language-independent correction that will also learn your slang and lingo.
The alpha and beta versions will only be available on Android. If that flies, their next move would be to address iOS. The project campaign is already backed on the Kickstarter and reached its funding goal of $10,000 (Fr 10,000).
