Fitaly Keyboard - The fastest, most accurate, least tiring way to enter text into your Pocket PC device.
“If there’s one thing about the Palm-style handheld computers that people grouse about the most, it’s text entry” Jeff Green, Business Week
“There’s a reason PDAs aren’t called personal note-taking assistants: Most are terrible input devices.” — Carla Thornton, PC World
Faster with Fitaly New keyboard layout, built for speed, is perfect for PDAs

Designed for Stylus Entry. FITALY replaces the functions of the on-screen QWERTY keyboard and handwriting recognition data entry systems. 73% of the letters you use in normal text are in a very tight central circle. With your hand resting at the bottom of your handheld device, and the stylus in the center of the keyboard, 84% of the normally used letters in written English, and two space bars, are within stylus-reach by just moving your fingers; never moving your hand! And individual letters are near the letters most likely to follow.
With minimum stylus travel, Fitaly is designed for accuracy and speed!
Beyond the basic functionality, FITALY is the most efficient, most technically advanced, most flexible, most customizable keyboard ever! Users are one or two taps away from the European symbols for languages and currencies. Hundreds (and potentially thousands) of abbreviations of routine phrases speed error-free text entry beyond just typing skills. Tap-and-slides yield capitals, accents, punctuation, numbers without changing configurations. And user choices abound - even choices of numeric pads (like telephone or like calculator), and choices of right handed or left handed bar functions. No keyboard has ever been like this!
Three Great Overriding Benefits
Fast, error-free text entry. With a little practice, users will typically exceed their QWERTY or handwriting speeds achieved after years of use? even more when factoring in the time to correct errors. And from there? 50 words per minute on your palm is in your near future! FITALY lets you use your Pocket PC device the way it was meant to be used: unobtrusively, stylus-driven, always with you, always available. Tag along keyboards allow you to enter text, but you must first find a desk, unfold it, merge the keyboard and Palm, set it up, type and then shut it down, take it apart?
No learning curve. Like QWERTY, FITALY in its basic functionality, is intuitively obvious - tap an A and an A shows up on the screen. Enter text immediately when you open the device for the first time, at acceptable hunt and peck speeds. With no errors. Tapping the letter you want to tap is not difficult. Then speed improves with every use!
Expand abbreviations into full words or phrases. The Expander of version 3 allows just a few letters to expand your routines without typing them? greatly increasing speed and accuracy of your text entry. The Expander is based on the powerful "Instant Text" software, which is the leading independent expander for Windows applications. The keyboard ships with Address, Business, U.S & World and Internet glossaries of abbreviations and their expansions, abbreviations that you need not remember! Type Massachusetts by just typing mas, or mss, or mch, or mst, or mch...

Fitaly in the Press
CNN: "QWERTY is an inefficient method to use when typing with one finger or, on the Palm, one stylus. There's another kind of keyboard that works perfectly with pen computing. It's called the FITALY keyboard"
MSNBC "Now that I know where some of the key letters are placed, others needed to form words are amazingly beginning to appear right where I need them. My speed is increasing in leaps and bounds? What I find very interesting is that I make very few mistakes. I'm not sure why that is, but I know for sure that I make fewer mistakes with the Fitaly keyboard than I usually make with QWERTY? "
Club Pocket PC -Microsoft "With the Fitaly Keyboard, you get a much more efficient key layout than traditional keyboards? and convenient shortcuts to commonly used phrases? It is especially attractive (because) it provides an easy way to enter accented characters and umlauts right off the basic keyboard. As a matter of fact, having to access a separate panel for accented characters in the standard keyboard has truly bugged me for a long time."
PocketNow.com "Without a doubt, FITALY is the fastest data input method I've evaluated? There are very few must have applications for the Pocket PC, but FITALY is most definitely on my list. FITALY is a very stable application? I haven't noticed any problems in day-to-day use.
