Symbitz releases SeeThru Keyboard for UIQ

The SeeThru Keyboard software from Symbitz allows text input using a radically different virtual keyboard. It is semi-transparent so you can see your application through the keyboard and the keys are much bigger making it easier to use.

Key Features:

SeeThru _______ You can see your app

The keyboard is semi-transparent so the whole application display can be seen at the same time as the key legends. This keyboard doesn't stop you from seeing what you are doing.

Bigger Keys_ Easier to use

Each key is much bigger than those of the built in QWERTY pop-up keyboard. The keys are much easier to hit - making for faster typing and fewer mistakes. You can even let your fingers do the typing.

WorkThru______ You can still use your app

The keyboard shares the central display area with the app but you can still access the app's buttons and other controls by using the WorkThru features.

TapThru: Draw a short line from where you wish to tap - say to press a button or to position the cursor.

GestureThru: Hold just for a moment at the beginning of the gesture - say to select text or to move a slider.

Hide: Just hide the keyboard temporarily to concentrate on a more complex task.

Automatic Activation___________ You don't need to tap an icon

This keyboard appears automatically whenever text input is needed (and it automatically disappears again when the task is complete). You don't have to tap an icon to pop it up and it doesn't use up your valuable screen space.

VAL Alphabetic_________ Memorable layout

The Vowel Aligned Left (VAL) Alphabetic layout places the vowels AEIOU down the left hand edge with the other letters following alphabetically. This layout is instantly memorable with the vowels acting as mental sign posts.

Cursor Navigation___ Position with accuracy

Sometimes it can prove tricky to place the cursor at just the right place in text to edit or insert. But with cursor navigation you can move with character precision.

Completely Capable All the characters you need

A full set of characters provide letters, numbers, punctuation, accented letters, currency symbols and more.
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." -Emerson

Looks a lot like the semi-transparent keyboard in Series 90.
