The valid virtual keyboard ASETNIOP has only 10 keys

In 2012, developer Zach Dennis introduced the concept of a touchscreen keyboard that uses a minimal number of data entry points. Now ASETNIOP is available as an application for iOS and Android, but so far only for tablets - adaptation for other gadget formats is not far off.

There are only 10 keys on the ASETNIOP virtual keyboard, 4 each with letter codes for the fingers of the right and left hands, and the thumbs rest on the spacebar and Shift buttons. When the user starts entering text, the system recognizes the combination of characters on the fly, searches for analogues in the dictionary of the most common words and reassigns the keys so that it remains to poke in the desired syllable and end the word. Much like standard autocorrect, but the ASETNIOP implementation is incomparably more flexible and user-friendly.

The system can and should be customized to suit your typing style in order to achieve perfect prediction of user actions. ASETNIOP keyboard has special shorthand combinations of characters, auto-correction and templates for phrases and terms. Experienced users, once comfortable, can type at up to 100 words per minute with a minimum of errors.

The bottleneck of the conceptual virtual keyboard is that all algorithms are tightly bound to the peculiarities of specific world languages. So far, support has been announced for English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish and Turkish. The cost of the app in the Apple App Store and Google Play is $ 4.99.
