KeyPoint Technologies offers an alternative text input application called 'Adaptxt' which intends to help users type on their mobile quickly and accurately. The app came out of public beta recently and offers keyboards for Android phones, Android tablets and Symbian phones. The Android version is available as a free download on the Google Play Store (Phone & Tablet), GetJar Marketplace (Phone & Tablet) and Amazon Appstore while the Symbian version is available for Rs 5 on the Nokia Store. What's particularly interesting though is that the app offers keyboards for 68 languages including 13 Indic languages like Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu among others and transliterated Indian languages including Hinglish (Hindi + English), Kanglish (Kannada + English), Tenglish (Telugu + English), Tanglish (Tamil + English), Manglish (Malayalam + English), Odinglish (Oriya + English) and Marathinglish (Marathi + English). Features: Besides the language keyboards and industry-specific dictionaries, Adaptxt also offers various other text input features like text prediction, word completions, error corrections, accented suggestions, ability to save new words into dictionaries, URL and Acronym suggestions, automatic text replacement, various keyboard layouts and personalized word suggestions based on social networking accounts, contacts and text messages. It also offers a private mode which prevents the app from learning sensitive data and adding it to the phone dictionary. On the tablet, the app also provides a split keyboard layout and the ability to reposition the suggestion bar below or above the keyboard.
