With only 5 keys instead of 30 or more, our keyboard is comfortable to use on devices of any size, including Smart Watches. The 5-TILES keyboard takes up 70% less of the screen than QWERTY, leaving you with lots more space for the text itself – and your fingers!
Finally, a keyboard that fits comfortably on ALL screen sizes.
The 5-TILES keyboard has an alphabet-based layout. The most common letters and the space key are underlined, and are typed with a single tap.
Other letters are typed with a sliding motion across the tiles, starting from the tile where they are written. To know where to slide to, look at the order of the letter in the row.
For example, the letter ‘F’ starts on the green tile, and slides back to the first key in the row: blue. The letter ‘I’ is a single tap on green. The letter “J” is written last, so it’s a slide from the green tile to the last tile in the row: red. Watch the video or give the Training App a try.
Extra keys are like extra legs – they don’t necessarily make you faster. That’s why 5-TILES is faster than keyboards where every letter and symbol has it’s own dedicated key. Our users achieve average speeds of 30 to 40 words-per-minute with just a bit of practice, and the record speed so far is 109 words-per-minute
The QWERTY keyboard was designed to prevent the jamming of mechanical keys 150 years ago. Although other letter ordering systems such as Dvoˇrák and KALQ are an improvement, it still makes no sense to cram all of those keys onto the touchscreen.
Intelligent dictionaries. Built-in editing tools. Advanced commands. More than 150 characters and symbols. 8 major European languages working simultaneously. All this makes 5-TILES the most powerful keyboard on the planet.
The 5-TILES keyboard offers a consistent speed and comfort of work across all devices – from budget phones under 3 inches to 10 inch tablets and ‘phablets’.
5-TILES is the first real alternative to voice commands for input on wearable technology such as smart watches and glasses.
The 5-TILES keyboard makes the perfect interface for any kind of device as a remote control with dedicated gestures. Welcome to Smart Everything!
