MessagEase, the smart choice for your touch screen device

What Is MessagEase?

MessagEase is an innovative keyboard especially designed for touch screen devices. Unlike the QWERTY keyboard, which was made for ten fingers, MessagEase is optimized for one or two fingers.

MessagEase has fewer, larger keys, and a novel letter assignment, making texting faster and more accurate.

A few minutes that you'll spend learning this new way of typing will save you hours of agony. We have also created MessagEase Game to help you learn MessagEase in a fun and entertaining way.

How Did We Design It?

We designed MessagEase—using Fitts' Law, letter frequency tables and di-gram frequency data—to minimize the distance a finger travels while texting and to maximize speed.

Also, with fewer keys, compared to a regular keyboard, MessagEase keys are 3.5 times larger. These larger keys make your texting much more accurate.

MessagEase's design and principles are detailed in a paper published in proceedings of the International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces, ICMI.
