Time for honesty. If you are a young man or woman with a smartphone, odds are you will spend between 10-50% of your time typing on it drunk as a skunk. Intoxicated people are famously prolific texters, tweeters, and Facebookers. Unfortunately, the Android keyboard is hard enough to work when you are sober. Messed up, it becomes infuriatingly difficult to type out a coherent message without re-typing every word twenty times.
Enter; BlindType (via DroidLife). This new app promises to revolutionize the way we type one-handed, hassled, drunk, or exhausted. It claims to be smart enough to tell what you were actually TRYING to type. And, while the app isn't out yet, they've posted a video that is quite compelling.
Obviously, this footage could have been doctored in any number of ways. I won't believe something this amazing actually exists until I see it on my smartphone. That said, this is certainly reason to add their website to your bookmarks and wait with bated breath for launch day.
