KeyPoint Technologies Introduces Industry Leading Keyboard Customization Features in AdaptxtA® App Update for Android Smartphones & Tablets

Jan 08, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- KeyPoint Technologies today introduced new features for its distinctive Adaptxt® brand smart keyboard app that allows Android smartphone and tablet users to extensively personalize and customize their keyboards. Unlike stock Android keyboards, users now have the freedom to change their keyboard color scheme as they see fit, and adjust the height of the keys. Adaptxt is the first to offer real time customization and personalization features.

The new Keyboard Customization features for Android include: The ability to add a vibrant and distinctive keyboard look for their devices from an almost infinite variety of color combinations. Users can express their artistic genius or mood by selecting colors of each keyboard element - the background color of the keyboard, key color, primary QWERTY characters and secondary numbers and symbols.

An on-screen keyboard height adjustment feature, which makes Adaptxt perfectly customizable to small and large screen Android devices.

A new clipboard interface featuring buttons to cut, copy and paste blocks of text and navigation keys to toggle between fields and move the cursor within the message. Users can easily access this interface by sliding their finger from one end to the other of the keyboard.

"Adaptxt as a brand is focused on enhancing the user experience through keyboard customization," said KeyPoint's VP Marketing, Ronald Brown. "We have listened to our users and are developing the Adaptxt keyboard app to better meet their needs, and it's paying off. We've experienced a significant increase in downloads over the past year and adoption continues to climb." The current version of Adaptxt features 68 language dictionaries, from Arabic to Vietnamese, plus 35 industry-specific dictionaries for professions such as business, finance, legal, telecom and medical. The industry-first SMS dictionary provides more than 3,000 shorthand abbreviations - such as lol, btw, gr8 and every1 - to make composing and sending text messages faster while keeping them from exceeding the 160-character limit. In addition to the current selection of dictionaries available, KeyPoint plans to develop additional consumer and enterprise related dictionaries this year.

Adaptxt uses artificial intelligence to identify the unique words and phrases entered by each user and adds them to a personalized custom dictionary. Adaptxt is fundamentally different from - and superior to - traditional predictive solutions, which simply hunt for a match in a predetermined dictionary lexicon, then automatically change what users type, forcing them to go back and manually correct the platform's mistake.

The Adaptxt keyboard app is available now for free from Google Play Store (https://play.google.com), the Amazon App Store and GetJar store.

The upgraded Adaptxt 1.1 keyboard works with any smartphone running Android 2.1 or later. Adaptxt 2.1 for Tablet works with any tablet running Android 2.2 or later.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
