SHANGHAI, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Award-winning app developer CooTek today announced the launch of TouchPal X, the next generation of keyboard technology for Android smartphones and tablets, available for free on the Google Play Store. Through TouchPal Wave™, TouchPal X's sentence gesture technology, you can input a full sentence without ever lifting a finger, making it the fastest keyboard application available for Android.

"We reinvented the language model to make TouchPal X the fastest predictive keyboard in the world," said Michael Wong, CEO of CooTek. "We also wanted to go beyond the speed factor to create an enjoyable experience, especially considering how much time younger generations spend communicating on mobile devices. With TouchPal X, we are striving to be ahead of the curve by creating an enjoyable experience, where interacting with the keyboard isn't only efficient, but also fun."

TouchPal X analyzes your unique input to predict words, which it can learn from allowing the app to access applications such as Twitter, Gmail and SMS. As its predictions become more useful, TouchPal X will shave more and more time from each successive sentence and even let you visually keep tabs on how much time you're saving through an on-keyboard speed meter and speed statistics. Studies have shown that once TouchPal X understands your word choices fully, you can save 90 percent of keystrokes and double your speed from 50-60 WPM (average speed of text input) to 121.7 WPM.

From downloadable skins to button sizes and other typing preferences, you can tailor the keyboard to your own texting style. TouchPal X supports a number of innovative layouts, including a one-handed layout for large touchscreen devices, and more than 30 new keyboard themes and Emoji X features to show your personality and emotions.

Prior to launching TouchPal X, TouchPal Keyboard successfully established itself with leading manufacturers, and is the default keyboard for devices by HTC, Sony, Huawei and ZTE.
