Ginger presents: Our top 10 Phrases

Hey guys,

Prima_Donna_POD

Each Wednesday we post a brand new Phrase on our website.

However, today we decided to list our picks for the top 10 phrases and their meanings:

  1. Take a Chill Pill - When someone is stressed and you want him/her to calm down and relax, you say “Take a Chill Pill”.
  2. Comfort Food - Food that gives emotional comfort and provides a nostalgic or sentimental feeling to the person eating it.
  3. Once in a Blue Moon - Something that happens very rarely. However, in the past, the meaning of the phrase was something that was preposterous and unreasonable.
  4. Icing on the Cake - Something positive that enhances a situation that’s already good.
  5. Prima Donna - Someone who behaves in a demanding and arrogant way, often expecting special treatment and usually unable to work well with others.
  6. Backseat Driver - Someone who gives unwanted and unneeded advice. Usually interfering in affairs without having the authority and knowledge to do so.
  7. Bring Home the Bacon - To earn a living for the family.
  8. Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget - Someone who lives above her means and likes expensive things she can’t possibly afford.
  9. Copycat - Someone who copies the work or mimics the actions of others.
  10. It ain’t over till the Fat Lady Sings - The final outcome of an event cannot be predicted until it has come to a conclusion.

Well, those are our picks for the top 10, let us know yours.

Introducing Smart Bar for Ginger Keyboard: Use other apps without leaving the keyboard

Today’s update marks an important milestone for Ginger, with the long-awaited introduction of our Smart Bar to the world.

With its release, Ginger Keyboard is now the only keyboard that lets you not only launch, but also use other apps directly from the keyboard. Download it here!

Other new features included in this update are Emoji Art and Animated GIFs so that you can express yourself visually when you can’t find the right words.

The possibilities made available with the release of Smart Bar really get us excited; here at Ginger, we’re focused on building products that help you save time  when using your mobile device. Now, for the first time ever, you’ll be able to take notes, set up events, send an email, start a chat (basically any action another  app can offer) without leaving your keyboard.

The name Smart Bar isn’t just a snappy way to call our feature either; we built it after figuring out that people often quickly rotate between Ginger Keyboard  and other apps. We figured out that we could save you guys a lot of time if we gave you the option to use the apps you want without having to go back and forth  between them and our keyboard. Down the road we plan on integrating our patented text analysis technology into the Smart Bar so that it can understand which app you want to use before you realize it yourself. Other plans include finalizing deals with popular 3rd party app developers for tighter integration into  Smart Bar.

We’ve also been listening to your requests… and have delivered big time with the release of fun communicating features like Emoji Art and Animated GIFs. To access them, just tap the emoji and then scroll through the new icons to see all cool new ways you can express yourself.

Please feel free to check out our new Help Center for more info on functionality. We’re always happy to hear your feedback in our Community – while you’re there, please feel free to join our Beta community to get Ginger goodies before everyone else.

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…”
