The HansOn One Handed Keyboard is the first of its kind, a truly fully functional one handed keyboard for the iPad. Finally be able to use all five fingers to type and still carry the iPad with your free hand.
The QWERTY keyboard layout was never designed to be functional as a one handed keyboard system, nor was it designed to work effectively as a typing system for tablet PCs. Once a tablet PC has to be “put down” to be an efficient typing platform, the concept of mobility is mute. One finger typing is not the way of the future for the tablet PC.
The patented keyboard design was created based on the ergonomics of the human hand and the keys positions based on the “frequency of letters, symbols and function keys used”. All the letters, numbers and 26 of the most commonly used symbols are on the keyboard without overwhelming the screen. The Letter locations are systematically placed to allow for the most frequently used letters to be typed by the most dominate fingers, the index and middle fingers. The learning curve is low, and you will be typing away at speeds far faster than the typical 1 finger or 2 finger typing while holding the iPad right from the start. Even as a beginner with this new key layout system, all one has to remember is, the most common letters will be near the index and middle finger position, and the vowels are in the middle row in a simple AEIOUY arrangement. Simple, fast, ergonomic and truly mobile.
1.LEFT HAND or RIGHT HAND option.
2.COPY ALL and DELETE ALL buttons.
3.SIZE CHANGE option (use 2 finger pinch to change size from menu).
4.CHANGE ANGLE OF KEYBOARD option (use 2 finger pinch to change angle of the keyboard).
5.POSITION CHANGE option (use 1 finger to drag the keyboard to the desired location).
6.LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys.
7.HIDE KEYBOARD button.(tap screen to make keyboard reappear)
8.Functional in both landscape and portrait position.
1.Adjust keyboard to desired size, angle and position. (Default size and angle are for “average” hand sizes and a relaxed hand position on the screen). Adjust the keyboard angle to allow for a straight hand to wrist position for maximum comfort.
2.The Thumb home key is the SPACE key. Rest of the fingers should be spread out comfortably on the middle row from "E" to ".".
3.Practice practice practice. Your WPM will increase with more use like any other form of data input systems.
The HansOn One Handed Keyboard at its current version, 1.0, was created to allow for the public to see and test what may be the best way to type and interact with a tablet PC. Future design and function updates will be dependent on the feedback of the users. Help us improve the product by testing out the new typing system and spreading the word of the app. Enjoy and thank you.
The Keys #, $, % and & are not available for this version but will be added very soon in the future. The “Fn” Key may be overly sensitive if the keyboard is too near the edge of the screen. Please leave at least 0.5 Centimeters of space from keyboard to the edge of screen. DO NOT REST THE PALM OF YOUR HANDS ON THE SCREEN. THIS WILL CAUSE THE KEYS TO NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
