-Easy to Learn

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.

As a former PalmPilot user I was delighted to find Graffiti available for Android when I got a Galaxy S2 in February 2013. Recently (due to increasing hardware failure) I was forced to get a new handset - Galaxy S4. I was relieved to see Graffiti was still compatible. When I started using it, however, I found the input area was about 2cm high - less than half the area available on the old handset. I'm having so much trouble now, accidentally touching the Menu softkey while writing and in many apps this automatically cancels the current action (in the process losing everything I'd just laboriously written) - which is why I'm having to write this on the computer instead of the phone :( ...I know others have this problem too. So can you please fix it??? I can't stand the idea of having to find a new input system. Keyboards just don't do it for me. Please please please fix the resolution issue. Please. *cries*

PalmOS Users Rejoice! As a former PalmOS user who had learned its Graffiti handwriting recognition alphabet, it was great to see it on Android. Now I can write notes quickly without looking at the virtual keyboard. Just wish the input region could be resized & the suggestions didn't lock (required to choose a word or add a space/punctuation to commit the word; or turn off word prediction) -very annoying. Still, a great tool on my tablet (a little trickier on the phone but not unusable). (v2.0.6 on LG G Pad 8.3)
