Swype co-founder tackles tablet keyboards
with Dryft for Android
More than a few Android users have fallen in love with the alternate keyboard Swype as a way to make text input on a touchscreen just a bit easier, and now Swype's co-founder is hoping to revitalize the keyboard yet again — this time, on tablets. "Even though you can swipe on a tablet, it will max out at about 40–45 words a minute," Swype co-founder Randy Marsden tells The Verge. "I can type faster than that. Most people can." Through a separate company, Marsden is now working on a keyboard called Dryft, which — as the name suggests — will drift around the screen if your fingers become slightly misplaced.
Dryft isn't headed to an app store...
"The tablets that are shipping right now meet those minimum standards that we have, but as little as earlier this year, the tablets shipping didn’t." He's already begun talking to partners about having the new keyboard come bundled.
