TouchPal Keyboard on Android

I've been testing a new on-screen keyboard on my Android smartphone. It's a free app called TouchPal and this keyboard has a nice interface and also includes some innovative shortcuts that help me work more efficiently on my smartphone. For example, I can swipe Left to Right on the delete key and that deletes the entire word. Or, you can tap a key for a letter and swipe up to get a number. Brilliant! Also, the keyboard lets you easily toggle the predictive word input/correction so that you can easily enable/disable this feature.

TouchPal is also similar to Swype in that you can type words without lifting your finger from the screen. You can slide your finger around the different keys to enter words. This is a nice option if you're entering words using a single hand and you're good with thumb dexterity.

This keyboard offers a few other nice features but I won't get into them right now. If you're using an Android device, you may want to give it a test spin and see how it works for you. You can also enable other languages on this keyboard. You can also learn more by visiting
