Tap, the company behind the futuristic Tap wearable keyboard, today announced the launch of a new TapAcademy app for iOS that’s designed to make it easier to learn to use the keyboard.
Tap is a keyboard that you wear on your thumb and fingers, using a series of finger taps to type different letters, numbers, and symbols.
Sensors built into the finger rings detect the movement of your fingers, translating your gestures into words for a novel, type anywhere experience. Of course, because it uses gestures, the Tap requires customers to learn a whole new way of typing.
In our Tap review earlier this year, we found it easy to learn to use the Tap through the existing Tap system, but this new method makes it even simpler to learn and then master.
TapAcademy is a 30-day course that you use for 10 minutes a day to learn all of the letters, numbers, and symbols that you need to use the Tap effectively as a keyboard replacement for iOS devices, Macs, and more.
Tap says that its TapAcademy app will turn Tap users into expert tappers, with most people achieving speeds of 30 to 40 words per minute.
TapAcademy is available from the iOS App Store starting today, and the Tap Keyboard can be purchased from the Tap website or from Amazon for $179.
