Ginger CEO talks about ‘Big Data on the Keyboard’

Hey guys,

we are excited to announce, that earlier this week, TechCrunch published an article by our very own CEO Maoz Shacht, “Big Data on the mobile keyboard.”

In the article he explains what big data is and how it affects and will enhance the user experience, as keyboard developers will use both big data and machine learning to improve all kinds of keyboard-dependent and context-based functions.

Here are the first two paragraphs of the article:
“The Information Age has the potential to overwhelm. When that happens on a technical front – when the volume of data is so large that traditional databases cannot handle it, or not handle it well – the industry refers to the phenomenon as “big data.” The term has even come to refer to the technological processing that takes place with the vast amounts of data.

 Thus, any time a category of data contains billions (or even trillions) of records from all over the web and other sources, we are talking about big data. Often we don’t even notice the “big data” aspect of our daily encounters with technology, such as when it comes to the autocorrect feature on mobile devices, word-processing programs, email clients and more…”

Ginger CMO talks about Contextual Awareness

Hey guys,

we are excited to announce, that earlier this week, WIRED published an article by our very own CMO Oded Llios, “Contextual Awareness: What’s All the Fuss About?”

In the article Oded explains how today’s mobile devices are the greatest providers of contextual awareness. Just imagine a scenario where you text a friend to meet you for lunch. As you type, your contextually aware keyboard, processes your sentence and sends an invitation to your friend, suggests locations for you to meet, recommends restaurants, provides directions, makes a reservation, and more.

Here is the first paragraph of the article:
“One of the hallmarks of recent technology is the way it is designed to respond to the people who use it. Easy examples of where we already see that happening are Google Now Cards (or Waze) that follow the user’s travels, notifications of the user’s upcoming appointments, app preferences, and accurate contact selection when the user enters only a few letters. In the industry, this responsiveness is known as ‘contextual awareness,’ where a given computing device uses user-specific data, like location-based technology and sensors to determine their users’ circumstances. Then it seems as if the device “knows” where the user is and what he or she needs…”

Ginger CEO talks about Keyboards in wearable devices

Hey guys,

We are excited to announce, that earlier this week, VentureBeat published an article by our very own CEO Maoz Schact, “3 approaches to building keyboards into wearable devices.”

In the article he talks about 3 different schools of thought regarding the best approach to input text and language into wearable devices. From the traditional QWERTY-based input, to the Augurs (aka adaptive text prediction software), and voice-based input.

Here are the first two paragraphs of the article:
“The year is 1989 and our esteemed hero, Marty McFly, has just touched down in a fictional Hill Valley of 2015 to save his kids from his childhood nemesis. Back in the ’80s, when the Back to the Future franchise first took the world by storm, the incredible technologies presented there seemed more of a pipe dream fantasy than prophetic sci-fi.
Fast forward to the real 2014. While the Back to the Future crew did get some things right, they definitely missed the mark on the technology that has the whole (tech) world obsessed — wearables…”

Ginger Announces the Next Evolution of the Mobile Keyboard with the Launch of Never Before Seen Tools and Features for Android and iOS 8

 Today marks the beginning of an exciting time for Ginger: Today we launch Ginger Keyboard on Android and iOS, and with this launch we hope to introduce a new, better way to effectively communicate via your smartphone. In fact, we see Ginger Keyboard as the next evolution of the mobile keyboard, and we hope that you, our fans, will see it in the same light.

Ginger Keyboard is now available for free in the Play Store and App Store, offering a fun, productive keyboard that will help you to quickly write high-quality text in any application.

What’s all the excitement about? Ginger is upping the ante by adding sophisticated keyboard features unavailable anywhere else including:

* As you type proofing courtesy of the world’s #1 proofreader
* Instant access to a holistic writing app providing cutting-edge editing, paraphrasing, translations, contextual synonyms and definitions
* A comprehensive ‘Create your own theme’ feature that lets you design your own, unique keyboard and then share it

More_than_a_keyboard

While we obviously deliver all of the standard features listed below, we truly believe that these productivity boosting features aren’t enough.

* Emoji
* Adaptive word prediction
* Stream (swipe-like input)
* Free, ready-made themes

We propose that a keyboard shouldn’t just help you input more text in less time, but also help you convey your message more accurately and effectively… so we’ve gone ahead and harnessed the power of our technologically advanced text analysis engine (already used by millions of desktop and browser users) to Ginger Keyboard.

One of Ginger Keyboard’s greatest advantages is that it is the only mobile keyboard that offers as-you-type proofing. This means that any spelling, grammatical or punctuation mistakes are instantly detected and corrected by Ginger. This prevents you from sending/posting/publishing any potentially problematic texts or typos and ensures that your text is of the highest caliber. We see this as a must-have feature for any keyboard and as the next evolution of the mobile keyboard experience.

Another major differentiator is that via our keyboard you have instant access to a powerful set of writing features that help you to better convey your intended message, everywhere you write.

How do we do it? Through the use of our patented NLP technology we’ve been able to develop a platform that analyzes your text to understand the message you’re trying to convey. This enables us to provide proofreading, paraphrasing and other critical writing tool results that help you convey your message more clearly and concisely, resulting in significantly more accurate communication.

Ginger Keyboard makes the writing experience more enjoyable by letting you add color and creativity to your keyboard. Dress your keyboard up with our wide selection of free, ready-made themes, or unleash the designer within you by building your very own unique theme from scratch through our ‘Build your own Theme’ feature.  You can also share your unique keyboard themes with the world.

We can go on and on about the advantages of our keyboard, but why waste time? Download it today and find out for yourselves.
