What Fitaly Users Are Saying...

Fitaly is Substantially Faster

Once the new positions of the Fitaly keyboard are known, it is substantially faster and also more accurate, since accuracy decreases as the distance between taps increases.

When trying to hammer out a lengthly Email on a small device that gives you Graffiti or a soft-QWERTY that was made for two hands, the FITALY just makes sense.

Learning Fitaly

Almost as fast as on the PC

I tend to write longer sentences on my Pilot, since I keep design specs for application software I'm developing on it. I can get the text into the Pilot with Fitaly almost as fast as I can type on the PC keyboard.

It is the fastest input method for most, once you have used it a bit.

After some practicing I can write fairly fast. Another advantage is that all characters are available - I make heavy use of the German umlauts...

Significantly Faster Than Palm's Qwerty

Then I practised each set of words until I was comfortable - and significantly faster than Palm's Qwerty layout. [...] And it seems that my brain has enough room for a separate stylus alphabet as well as 10-finger typing and handwriting.

Pleased With the New Keyboard Option

It never made sense to me using a Qwerty keyboard on a tap screen since it was designed to slow you down. [...] A large number of the resident physicians who are participants in our study have chosen Fitaly as their default data entry method.

How much is your time worth?

But within 10 minutes of trying the Fitaly keyboard, I was writing 22 wpm. I stopped bothering with it when I hit 38 wpm. So I can now write TWICE AS FAST with the Fitaly keyboard as I could with Graffiti.
