Wichita, KS, February 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Modality Keyboard allows users to type on their Samsung Watch at least 42 words per minute. Modality is the team effort of IMpasto Animation Studios and Apprising Apps, which joined together to form Joyful Machines in 2016.
Unlike the standard ten-finger keyboard, Modality is specifically made for use with one or two fingers or thumbs.
Joyful Machines introduced Modality to iPhone, iPad and Android Phone June 2016, and it became available to both Samsung Gear S3 in November 2016 and S2 January 2017.
“We've been waiting for the watch release for a long time, and it’s really exciting on the watch,” says Ian Hanson, CEO, “Within one hour of use we were already rivaling the average phone typing speed, and within three days we had reached 42 words in a minute, which is 68% faster than the average phone typing speed.”
That means that users are able to quickly learn and be productive on Modality without much practice. This is important because according to this Forbes article, Smart Watches are being looked at as a next important step in business productivity. http://www.forbes.com/sites/bernardmarr/2016/03/18/15-mind-boggling-facts-about-wearables-in-2016/#514b86b14773
As for Joyful Machines, Modality is the first phase in building the company, whose mission is to provide useful and fun technology. Though definite plans for the next ten years are still being developed, Joyful Machines is considering technology infusions in clothes washing machines, lawn mowers, and dishwashers.
But they don’t want to take steps too quickly. After they get Modality up and running, they have plans for two more keyboard apps (each for a different purpose), and then they plan a music-related technology app.
In the meantime, Joyful Machines wants to keep the cost of Modality low, at .99, to allow for early adopters to get a chance to use it and give feedback. They are looking for feedback via message at http://facebook.com/joyfulmachines
