- Great concept
- Makes typing difficult
This app makes keys bigger, but slows down typing in the long run.
While the ThickButtons Keyboard is a good idea in theory, the reality is a little different. The keyboard is supposed to be dynamic and will highlight and enlarge what it anticipates to be the next letter with the intent on making texting and typing faster and more convenient. But that's not what it does. Instead it messes with the flow of typing and if something isn't highlighted, it's almost too small to hit.
This app has a great concept to help people type faster and improve accuracy with on a touch screen device.
The thick buttons are more of a hindrance than a help.
Simplicity and efficiency! We believe less is more and that is what makes typing process easy and lightning fast. As you type a word, ThickButtons enlarges and highlights those buttons which you will most likely press and shrinks all the others which reduces the chance of making an error, especially on devices with average screen size.

Really like the app but on my S2 there is no send button while texting. I have to write text>go home>back to text and then it is there.This I'm afraid makes the app unusable for me.
Much less typos.
