Analog Keyboard Project: Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)’s First Talent In Mobile

Satya Nadella is working on the adoption of a new company-wide philosophy for Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and we just got a glimpse of what to expect in the near future. Analog Keyboard Project is an app aimed at allowing users input text on small screen devices like Android Wear through writing one letter at a time on the tiny display, according to TechRadar.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)

This new piece of software does not work on screens with a resolution of 280×280 and is capable of draining the battery pretty quickly. But, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced this to be a simple prototype that would generate precious user feedback in order to develop the official version of the Analog Keyboard or try and find some other method for input. Currently, voice-powered texting is the best form of communicating with wearable devices, but even this can fail as different tones of voice are sometimes perceived erroneously. There’s also the problem of background noise that can get into the way of speaking into your wearable, so Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s prototype app can prove to be a very useful utility.

Some other attempts to enable texting on smart-watches were through minuscule keyboards, Minuum can serve as an example, but they proved to be quite a frustrating experience. It’s interesting to see what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has to say in response to this announcement from Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). Probably, it won’t get too anxious about it as the Analog Keyboard Project is only in its initial phase with buggy functionality, capricious settings, lower case letters, and energy demanding. Nevertheless, as all the developed software goes through this process it may take little time till we see a proper app that does not drain the battery and allows a steady writing flow even on a tiny screen. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) seems to have taken its promised strive towards innovation seriously, although it’s not yet such a big thing.
