Comments on: Thumbscript Offers Free Medicine for Graffiti Blues

In order to promote its visual alphabet for text entry with all kinds of mobile devices, Thumbscript Development, LLC is giving away Go-Thumbscript™, a fully functional software application that substitutes Thumbscript for Palm’s pop-up keyboard

“We know there are many people, especially those who received Palm devices for the holidays, who are just finding out how tricky Graffiti is, and how often there are errors in recognition. Thumbscript takes no more time to master, is 25% faster, and uses a positive recognition scheme to avoid guesswork,” says Jeffery Smith, MD, a psychiatrist and pioneer of the technology.

is graffiti really all that hard to master? i had no problem with it and use it alone for entering data into my palm to this day. not to mention that this thumbscript thing looks about as intuitive as VCR time programming instructions.

Nope, you're just fine. I got my Palm for Christmas and in just under an hour of playing with it, managed to commit the alphabet to memory. In under a day, I had remembered the most commonly-used symbols.

Sure, once in a while I need to backspace but even computer keyboards have a backspace button! : )

Yes, Graffiti works, but is thumbscript faster and more accurate for the same time spent training? Also, thumbscript might be important eventually if it can be implemented on any telephone keypad.
