Ever since those early Nokia phones back in the late 90s, predictive text entry has been swimming tide – sorry, saving time – for typists working on small screens and keyboards. You’d think that with tablets, tablets and large screen phones we’d be happy. But apparently not.
Lazyboard is a new Android keyboard app that aims to reduce the amount of effort exerted during typing even further. Preferably to one ham fisted stab per word or less. It basically replaces the entire keyboard with those “quick reply” messages becoming common in SMS apps.
The app makes it possible to access, through a simple tap, handy expressions that we use during conversations we are not interested in. Including words that usually bring conversations to an abrupt end like “cool”, “ok” and “haha”.
