Swiss company Typewise recently launched a new version of its mobile application called Typewise 3.0 on April 28, 2021. The startup reportedly uses artificial intelligence to further provide users with more accurate and enhanced typing experiences.
Typewise is a startup company based in Switzerland. It provides users with a mobile application keyboard that is slated to reduce typographical errors, with its latest version claiming that it beats both keyboards from Good and Microsoft, namely the Gboard and SwiftKey respectively, reports Android Headlines.
Typewise Keyboards supports more than 40 languages, with Android Headlines noting that its artificial intelligence technology can speak and detect French, German, Italian, Spanish, and many others.
In a statement, Typewise co-founder and digital strategist David Eberle told Dezeen that “Typewise began as a solution to make daily life easier, to put a stop to annoying typos and cumbersome typing. Our mission is to change the way we input information into our devices.”
While version 3.0 bears similarities with earlier versions, in that it still comes with a hexagonal layout better suited for typing with two thumbs, Dezeen reveals that Typewise 3.0 is now coupled with enhanced artificial technology to provide users with better access to a keyboard that corrects mistakes.
The honeycomb layout allows “the surface [to] become 70 percent larger per key, and that drastically reduces your typos. But we soon realized that, while it’s great to have a better interface, we can still make it better,” notes Eberle in another statement.
The artificial intelligence algorithm helps users to determine and correct their errors. In addition, this technology allows individuals to gain access to word suggestions that could be used in typing succeeding texts.
Dezeen states that the app has the ability to learn users’ habits, letting Typewise make suggestions based on the habits it observes in users.
It also offers predictability settings, as well as the ability to switch between a number of languages, notes Dezeen.
The latest Typewise version to come to mobile phones is made in collaboration with ETH Zurich. With this collaboration, the developers now say that the app is capable of reducing typographical errors by as much as 75 percent. Meanwhile, Dezeen notes that the change also led to a rise in typing speeds by as much as 33 percent.
As of writing, Typewise is available on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store for download. While it is free to us, the developers have also offered a Pro version that comes with more tools. The premium version starts at $1.99 per month on the App Store, reports 9 to 5 Mac.
