Access Releases Graffiti for Android
Access has just released a version of the classic Palm OS Graffiti for Android OS devices. Entitled, Graffiti for Android, the app brings the original Graffiti 1 character recognition system to Google's mobile platform.
The application enables Graffiti functionality systemwide on Android phones. It includes the original Graffiti strokes, complete with the familiar two-part silkscreen, as well as the Graffiti Help reference screen. Users can bring up the silkscreen for text input and use a finger or stylus to enter characters.
Graffiti for Android v1.02 is currently available as a free download in the on-device Android Market. First impressions and additional screenshots after the break...
This marks the second time Access has brought technologies from classic Palm OS Garnet to other Linux based mobile platforms. The company also offers a Garnet VM emulator for Maemo powered Nokia Internet Tablets and the Nokia N900 smartphone. Access has a full license to the original Graffiti system thanks to the patent infringement lawsuit settlement reached with Xerox in 2006.
