New Key Layout
Ok, so I am still stuck on the keyboard layout. Last I left you, my new layout was this:
Playing around with this layout, and watching other people play around with it, I realized that fingers had to move all over the screen to tap out the numbers. That made me change the layout to the following:
I think this grouping allows for faster number tapping. However, I sort of have a problem with an uncentered keypad. Yet, by centering it, I kill a lot of screen real estate I want to use in other ways. And if it is to be off to one side, then why not on the left side?
(I had one crazy idea: scrap the keypad entirely, and just show a pile of numbers at the bottom of the screen and let people flick numbers up in order…)
