Comments on: Access Releases Graffiti Pro for Android

grafitti pro android Responding to some widespread requests (though this move will likely also generate more than a few complaints as well) Access Co. has released a new "Pro" version of their Graffiti app for Android OS devices.

Ringing in at $2.99 in the Android Market, this is essentially the exact same program as the still-available free version, despite its 1.0 version number. The purchase price banishes the ads for Access' NetLife products completely and, thankfully, network access is no longer required to use the program.

I hope they port it to WebOs for those who want it. But, how in God's green earth do you do graffiti with a capacitive touch screen? Sounds about like getting excited @ Windows 3.1 skin to run on an iPad to me! :-Pat Horne

Would Graffiti written with your finger really be that tough, given the size of the screen? Granted, you wouldn't be able to write a lot of text at a time, but I would think it would be sufficient for the same kinds of tasks you'd use the stylus on a Centro or TX for. You'd certainly be able to make Notepad-style jots.

I'm sure that you COULD, but WHY? Are the keyboards on Android devices that bad? Is it somehow faster?

Don't get me wrong, I loved G1 on my first 4 or 5 Palms, and even accepted G2 on my T3. But after using a Treo, Pre, and even the onscreen Pre keyboard, I really don't see the purpose. But hey, to each thier own.

In my view, the reason to obtain Graffiti is to carry the torch of nostalgia. It is a way to salute ("give props to") our digital heritage.

Yeah, that too but you might want to consider that it works and flawlessly. It is the fastest way to enter data if you are more coordinated and intelligent than a well trained monkey.
Have a nice day!

Are the keyboards on Android devices that bad? I can only speak to my experience.

The keyboard on my Aria isn't "bad." It's "small." I have trouble using it for text entry. I constantly mistype. Having to switch between keyboards is annoying.

Graffiti, on the other hand (no pun intended), is something that I already know. I'm more efficient at text entry because I make fewer mistakes.

If they can sell 110 million copies they will break even.

dagwd, that answers it. If it works it works.

Yeah, about the 110m copies, I was wondering if this is the first thing that Access is actually getting a check for in years. I bet they had to go out and hire a receivables department b/c they have never had anyone buy anything. $300 million is a lot of cheese.

yes - right after Docs To Go and the Athena Connector. i heard they are working on buggy whip and 8 track accessories.

on a side note i think Twitter is cannibalizing forum site chatter. anyone else agree?

@"are the keyboards on Android devices that bad?"

Were the keyboards on Palm that bad?

Graffiti is a fast and proven entry method that doesn't have to shift into a "special mode" for numbers or letters (a win over keyboards already), and navigation (left, right, delete, etc) is built-into the experience.

These are at least a couple ways it's faster and easier to use vs standard or Swype. Over hardware keyboard and optical touchpad ... Graffiti looses some of its luster.
