Now here's an interesting new idea for sending text messages that appears to want to fill a niche for people who hate predictive text but don't like taking ages clicking through different choices of letters to write each word.
What TapTapSMS offers is something in between. When you upload the software the screen shows six large panels. Four of these contain six consecutive letters, one contains the letters y and z and four symbols and the last contains six other punctuation signs.
When you want to write a letter you click on the corresponding panel which then converts the six main panels so they each contain one of the letters from the first panel eg click on the 'a,b,c,d,e,f' panel and the letters are divided between each of the six panels.
Then click the correct panel to write a letter and return to the original display to choose another. It takes some time but once your brain works out where all the letters are spread it is quick and easy.
And it does relieve the stress of predictive text, if you hate that. However, if you choose the wrong first panel you then have to choose to write an incorrect letter to return to the first display so you can delete it.
