Graffiti™ is a replacement for the built-in on-screen keyboard, also called an input method. With Graffiti, you no longer type but you draw Graffiti characters with your finger or a compatible stylus. Graffiti characters are mostly single-stroke drawings that closely match the usual alphabet, but are simplified to make entry faster and easier. For example, the letter "A" is entered with a stroke that looks like an upside-down "V", saving time that you do not need to cross the "A" in the middle. Same for the letter "T", which is entered almost like a "7".
There are text and numeric input areas, improving the recognition of your input. Strokes drawn in the text area will only be interpreted as letters; strokes in the numeric area will be interpreted as numbers.

If you were a user of a PalmOS based PDA in the past, this will all be very familiar to you as the input method used by those devices was a stylus drawing Graffiti strokes in an input area at the bottom of the display. But even if you were not a Graffiti user before, you should give it a try now if you find that the on-screen keyboard doesn't suit your input style.

Don't know the Graffiti alphabet? After installing and enabling Graffiti, just draw a stroke up from the Graffiti input area into the main display area and the help screen appears. Tap to switch between the six stroke help screens.

    No updates in years. Bugs making it less reliable. Menu can pop up randomly at any moment as you write, selecting a menu item (like "Cancel") without warning! Android is unusable with a normal keyboard but this is getting too flaky to use too.

    I've been using this app for a few years on a Samsung Galaxy S2 and always loved it. I was a Palm Pilot guy since about 97 and I've always loved Graffiti for input. This app worked great on my Galaxy S2. However, I just upgraded to an S5 and it appears that the input area is locked in resolution. Now, on a 1080 display, the input area is just way too small to use effectively. I'd still recommend i

    It takes a little getting used to, but it is a great way to free yourselves from a tiny keyboard if you have fat fingers and a small phone.
