Though there are a number of alternatives available, the QWERTY keyboard layout (and regional variants) is the input king. But its crown can slip a little when users try and flex their Touch Typing skills on the flat surface of a smart device such as a tablet. Zack Dennis came to the rescue in 2012 with a chorded keyboard concept called ASETNIOP that used 10 input points for the most frequently-used letters in the English language, and a combination of finger inputs for the rest. Now that keying system has launched for iOS and Android tablets.
