Making your Android smart phones smarter

Make your Android smartphones smarter. Android smartphones have made your life easy. These made you tech savvy. However, typing in these Android smartphones is not an easy job. Most of the mobile devices use the same older QWERTY keyboards. These keyboards were developed a century ago for the old typewriters. Modern desktop and laptop computer devices used the same Qwerty keyboard with little modifications. It was going well.

It was changed with tablets, phablets and smaller versions of mobile phones using the internet. Typing with fingers became an old fashion. It is easier to type with both thumbs in these smartphones. Here comes the new keyboard application KALQ. Vardhaman Infotech, Jaipur has developed a new KALQ keyboard app and launched it on April 30, 2013, through Google play store for free download.

KALQ is a split keyboard divided into two parts making easier for thumb-based typing. It is faster and smarter. You need to practice for a few hours to get set on this new keyboard. Researches of St. Andrews university show that one can achieve 85% higher speed in typing in this new keyboard. Normal typing speed in mobile devices in older QWERTY keyboard is twenty words per minute whereas it is thirty-seven in new KALQ keyboard.

Famous website CNET has provided a download link from their website. Several newspapers in European Union reported this technological innovation. N Raghuraman, Management guru has written a complete story about the making of Darshan Kothari, head of the developer team; Vardhaman Infotech, Jaipur; and the KALQ keyboard. The story has been published in all editions of Dainik Bhaskar, largest Hindi daily, on May 13.

KALQ keyboard first time launched by Indians

KALQ keyboard, a smarter and faster thumb based typing keyboard is launched by Indians! Congratulations!!

Researchers in University. of St. Andrews developed a new keyboard which works better than present QWERTY keyboards in smart phones. Darshan Kothari and his team at Vardhaman Infotech, Jaipur, India quickly developed an Android application for smart phones and launched it free in Google play store on April 30, 2013. They developed it in only five days after research paper published. MPI-INF (Max Planck Institute for Informatics), Montana Tech, a renowned organization has yet to launch the application!!

Large numbers of people downloaded the application worldwide and it is spreading. The present keyboard app works on Android tabs and large phones only. Darshan Kothari of Vardhaman Infotech informed that his team is working to make it compatible with other Android phones. They believe it to bring newer version very soon.

However, few of researchers did not take it with sportsman spirit. One of the team members  Myroslav Bachynskyi posted a warning at Google playstore that this is not official! How ridiculousness!!! It is officially launched by Vardhaman Infotech. Of course, it is not an official release of MPI-INF (Max Planck Institute for Informatics), Montana Tech and nowhere in the app it is claimed to be of the institute. 

Instead of appreciating the effort taken by an Indian in developing the app in such a fast speed they have started condemning it.
