I went looking through the new iPhone apps to fix some of its problems and found this very cool solution on TechCrunch for iPhone email.
Perhaps it’s my “fat fingers” as one comment put it but I have a hard time typing on the current iPhone keyboard which is in portrait mode. The new application, called TouchType, by developer Mike Schneider, gives you a landscape (horizontal) mode keypad for those fat fingers. Type an email, hit send and it automatically moves the message to email. I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds like a big improvement.
I don’t know if it works for texting. Does it?
This is something so simple that Apple should have done it at launch. Check out the comments at TechCrunch.
The app costs a buck.
