Wink It feature allows smartphone users select from a variety of real-time, relevant icons and images to help create texts that are more expressive and fun. Wink It predicts not only the right images/emoticons based on context, error correction and most importantly, user preferences, rather than mere word matching but also comes with the added feature of auto correction and next word prediction. With Wink It predictions, users can choose from multiple choices for a given input. For example, when a user starts typing “fruit”, the output options can range from images of an apple, banana, mango and several more fruits.
The Wink It keyboard is also intelligent as it continuously learns users’ writing styles to suggest the most accurate image to make texting considerably faster and more interesting. It will also predict emotions based not only on word inputs but also on voice input recognition, single tap, multi touch tap and glide.
According to Mr. Sumit Goswami, CEO, KeyPoint Technologies, “Image prediction is the future of instant messaging and will answer users’ requirements. We are confident that our new Wink It keyboard will allow users to express themselves better and make their communication more engaging and impressive. This new feature will certainly add on to our industry firsts and will be a step forward in offering innovative solutions to one of the largest smartphone markets of the world.”
According to an Amex Open Forum study in 2013, use of emoticons have gained higher share, comment and like rates. It has been noted that nearly 60% of all messages contain at least one emoticon or image and 23% of all tweets on Twitter contain at least one emoticon. The study proves that emoticons are fast becoming an important part of our messages. In this fast paced world, it is becoming increasingly imperative for messaging apps to keep pace with users’ needs. This is where Wink It will prove to be an extremely handy tool. This patent pending breakthrough product is a step forward to company’s endeavour in creating seamless interaction between people and the devices in their lives.
