Graffiti Pro for Android v1.0.2
Requirements: Android 1.6+
Overview: Do you find on-screen keyboards annoying and hard to use? Graffiti Pro for Android is an easy-to-learn, stroke-based handwriting recognition system that replaces the on-screen keyboard (also called an input method). Graffiti Pro for Android includes word suggestion, auto-capitalization at sentence start, word learning, and error correction. Graffiti supports Japanese and English input.
If you've got clumsy thumbs and stumble around the keyboard, then you'll be glad to know that with Graffiti, there's no need to type--you simply draw characters on the screen 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.
Just to Be Clear
The app offers text and numeric screen 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 translated into numbers. If you've ever used a PalmOS-based PDA, this method will be very familiar to you.

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.
