Text entry on smartphones is far slower and more error-prone than on traditional desktop keyboards, despite sophisticated detection and auto-correct algorithms. [...] Key Result We identify patterns in our empirical findings and discuss implications for design and improvements of soft keyboards.Expand
Hand Posture's Effect on Touch Screen Text Input Behaviors: A Touch Area Based Study
TLDR
This work expanded on the work of [1] by considering the entire surface area of digit contact with the smartphone keyboard, rather than interpreting each touch as a single point, and showed that significant differences exist when basing offset calculations on touch area compared to touch points for two postures. Expand
ContextType: using hand posture information to improve mobile touch screen text entry
TLDR
ContextType is introduced, an adaptive text entry system that leverages information about a user's hand posture to improve mobile touch screen text entry and reduces total text entry error rate. Expand
How We Type: Eye and Finger Movement Strategies in Mobile Typing
TLDR
Movement strategies were found to emerge in response to sharing of visual attention: attention is needed for guiding finger movements and detecting typing errors, and part of the known superiority of two-thumb typing over one-finger typing. Expand
Are Split Tablet Keyboards Better? A Study of Soft Keyboard Layout and Hand Posture
TLDR
A controlled experiment to assess if split soft keyboards pose an improvement over ordinary soft keyboard on tables with both one-handed and two-handed use shows that the split keyboard performs worse than ordinary keyboards in terms of text entry speed, error rate and preference. Expand
Automated Smartphone Keyboard Error Corrections
TLDR
An algorithm is developed that predicts users typing intentions based on a statistical geometrical modeling of the touch points area and builds a user-adaptive virtual location of the key based on deviations probability computation. Expand
Effects of Interaction Style and Screen Size on Touchscreen Text Entry Performance: An Empirical Research
TLDR
Investigation of text entry performance for mobile touchscreen devices with emulated QWERTY keyboards with special emphasis on interaction style and screen size provides a valuable insight into the user behavior when typing on touchscreens. Expand
The Effects of Keyboard Layout and Size on Smartphone Typing Performance
Usability and typing performance on a smartphone with two unique QWERTY keyboard layouts (standard vs. curved) on two phone sizes (4.0-inch vs. 5.5-inch displays) was investigated in this study. TheExpand
Investigating the Behavior of Sequence Typing on the Mobile Devices
TLDR
An App for data entry testing was developed to analyze how the finger movement directions, speeds, distances, directions and accuracies while making continuous data entry inside the keyboard areas of the mobile devices and showed that the directions of the finger movements would affect the touch point positions. Expand
Investigating Gesture Typing for Indirect Touch
TLDR
This work examines users' gesture typing ability in terms of the appropriate keyboard size and location in motor space and then compares the typing performance in direct and indirect touch mode, and proposes an improved design to address the uncertainty and inaccuracy of the first touch. Expand
Optimization of Split Keyboard Design for Touchscreen Devices
TLDR
A mixed-integer programming model is developed to optimize key-to-thumb assignment with the objective of minimizing the expected time to type a character and results show that text entry rate and the optimal key- to-thUM assignment depend on key dimensions, user’s speed-accuracy profile, and the level of alternate-hand advantage.

Usability guided key-target resizing for soft keyboards
TLDR
An anchored key-target method is proposed which incorporates usability principles so that soft keyboards can remain robust to errors while respecting usability principles, and it is found that using anchored dynamic key-targets significantly reduce keystroke errors as compared to the state of the art. Expand
On-line personalization of a touch screen based keyboard
TLDR
A method for on-line adaptation of a touch pad keyboard layout from an original layout that subtly moves the keys according to the spatial distribution of keystrokes, and makes the physical trajectories during typing more comfortable. Expand
Typing on flat glass: examining ten-finger expert typing patterns on touch surfaces
TLDR
It is shown that expert typists exhibit spatially consistent key press distributions within an individual, which provides evidence that eyes-free touch-typing may be possible on touch surfaces and points to the role of personalization in such a solution. Expand
Text Text Revolution: A Game That Improves Text Entry on Mobile Touchscreen Keyboards
TLDR
This paper introduces Text Text Revolution (TTR), a game that helps users improve their typing experience on mobile touchscreen keyboards in three ways: first, by providing targeting practice, second, by highlighting areas for improvement, and third, by generating ideal training data for key-target resizing as a side effect of playing the game. Expand
Investigating the effectiveness of tactile feedback for mobile touchscreens
TLDR
The addition of tactile feedback to the touchscreen significantly improved finger-based text entry, bringing it close to the performance of a real physical keyboard. Expand
A Model of Two-Thumb Text Entry
TLDR
The model provides a behavioural description of the interaction as well as a predicted text entry rate in words per minute, which is a peak rate for expert text entry for two-thumb text entry on miniature Qwerty keyboards. Expand
100,000,000 taps: analysis and improvement of touch performance in the large
TLDR
A compensation function that shifts the users' touches to reduce the amount of errors is derived from the data and evaluated by publishing an update of the game and it is argued that such a compensation function could improve the touch performance of virtually every smartphone user. Expand
The performance of touch screen soft buttons
TLDR
Three experiments are conducted focusing on one of the most basic interaction actions on touch screens: the operation of soft buttons, with issues investigated include a comparison of soft button and hard button performance; the impact of audio and vibrato-tactile feedback; theimpact of different types of touch sensors on use, behavior, and performance.

Shorthand writing on stylus keyboard
TLDR
The key principles for the SHARK design include high efficiency stemmed from layout optimization, duality of gesturing and stylus tapping, scale and location independent writing, Zipf's law, and skill transfer from tapping to shorthand writing due to pattern consistency. Expand
Understanding touch
TLDR
This work revisits the implicit assumption that users acquire targets with the center of the contact area between finger and device and presents the projected center model, under which error offsets drop to 1.6mm, which suggests that the new model is indeed a good approximation of how users conceptualize touch input.
