Projects / quicktype


QuickType is a Palm extension to help improve text input on Palm OS devices. It is not a built-in keyboard or Graffiti replacement, but rather a supplement. It makes it easier to input the more common information quickly. For punctuation, numbers, and special characters, you will still need to use either Graffiti or the built-in keyboard.
