Smartphones are a great communication tool — when their crummy keyboards aren’t messing everything up with typos and autocomplete mistakes.
Enter Google Handwriting Input, a new keyboard app released Wednesday for Android devices. It allows you to simply draw your messages rather than typing them out. It works with absolutely any existing Android app and supports 82 different languages, including Chinese. Best of all, it’s a free download via Google Play.
Many products have grappled with solving the problem of touchscreen keyboards. TV personality Ryan Seacrest has a line of Bluetooth keyboards called the Typo, which attaches to iPhones and iPads so that you can type on physical buttons. A simple search for “smartphone keyboard” on Amazon surfaces many similar products. And apps like Swype present completely alternative methods to typing altogether.
But nothing is as natural as handwriting, at least for those of us who still recall learning composition in grade school.
Google Handwriting Input works pretty well, even when you’re working with abstract emoji. It recognized that I was scribbling the “sleepy” face on the Google Hangouts app.
