BlindType, the highly impressive typing software for mobile devices, has been acquired Google. Most known for it’s impressive videos of typing “blindly” and still coming up with an accurate result, the addition of this software could be very helpful for all, especially those who find typing on a virtual keyboard an annoyance, or unreliable.

In the official statement on their blog, BlindType stated:

“We are excited to announce that BlindType has been acquired by Google!

We want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support and positive feedback. We know that typing on your mobile device can be a frustrating experience, which is why we’ve worked hard to make touch typing easier and faster than ever – the way it should be.

We’re excited to join Google, and look forward to the great opportunities for mobile innovation that lie ahead.


The BlindType team”

As seen in the video demonstration below, BlindType allows you to type without being even slightly accurate, aka typing blindly. This could be very effective for people who type fast, distracted, or just mindlessly, and will still compute the desired result. Further word is to come, and we will for sure keep you updated!
