Speed Texting on Android: ThickButtons

June 16, 2010: 10:16 PM ET

ThickButtons is another way to increase your texting speed and accuracy on Android.

I wrote earlier today about Swype, a new way of texting.  Swype's method of sliding instead of tapping is pretty effective but requires a radically new way of thinking.

If you want something a lot easier (both to install and use) have a look at ThickButtons.  The idea is that it anticipates what combinations of letters you are likely to use and makes those letters bigger as you type.  Therefore you are a lot more likely to strike those letters, meaning the typing is faster and more accurate.

ThinkButtons 0.6 is free at the Android Market if you do a search.  Thanks for the tip.
