SAN JOSE, Calif., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/-- KeyPoint Technologies, an award-winning world leader in user interface technology, today announced the Adaptxt 3.0 smart keyboard app is now out of beta and available for download in the Google Play store. Adaptxt replaces user's standard smartphone keyboards enabling them to interact effortlessly with their apps, emails and text messages with a keyboard that is practical, personalized and engaging. Adaptxt 3.0 not only understands what users are typing, but it identifies the location of the user and what application they are running to provide more accurate and contextual word predictions.
Adaptxt's new features and improvements are based on requests and suggestions from users. Adaptxt is now the first keyboard where users are able to set preferred locations on their device or turn on auto-location, allowing the built-in Adaptxt dictionary to populate nearby street names, landmarks and relevant addresses. Using the localization feature, the ongoing frustration with autocorrect is significantly reduced, as it predicts and suggests names and words associated with the user's location.
"It's our goal to make messaging as simple and easy for consumer as possible. We used consumer input to take word prediction to a whole new level with keyboards that know you better than you know yourself," said Sumit Goswami, CEO at KeyPoint Technologies. "With Adaptxt 3.0, users will save even more keystrokes as the keyboard intuitively provides location and app-based word suggestions in real-time."
By adding pinpointed suggestion features to the app, Adaptxt is more aware of the context in which users are writing. Unlike other keyboards, Adaptxt knows what application is being used and will provide word suggestions according to the user's writing and texting style and habits. It's able to detect whether the user is having a casual conversation using Facebook Messenger or drafting something formal in Gmail and adjust its word predictions accordingly.
Other keyboard enhancements include 12 new languages, five specialized dictionaries and two embedded themes. In addition to missing space corrections, automatic backup of personal dictionary and new customization options, all based on relevant user feedback.
