T9 Trace

Ever since the launch of the iPhone, virtual keyboards have become more and more popular, but there are still some inherent kinks that can make using them a frustrating experience. The T9 Trace software is setting out to solve that problem. It’s from the same people who brought you the T9 predictive text dictionary found on almost all physical keyboard cell phones. For the Trace, instead of tapping out each letter to spell a word, the system allows users to swipe across the on-screen keyboard while the software intuitively guesses what word you’re trying to spell. It should allow for some really quick and easy messaging.

The system supports 70 languages, and it comes with automatic error correction (a big plus) and auto-completion. The software will be appearing on touchscreen phones soon.
