About a month ago I finally decided to cave and purchase an iPod Touch. To be perfectly honest, I love it, and rarely leave the house without it in my pocket. When I have WiFi access, I’ll use it to check my mail and keep up on news, which is pretty cool. I was surprised at how easy it was to use the keyboard, even if I’m still a bit slow with it. If you’re looking for something to improve your ability to type on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you may consider My Touch Keys.
This plastic overlay covers the entire screen of your device, save for the letters on the keyboard and the home button. This provides the much-needed tactile feedback, yet still allows you to use the touch screen features on your phone. While it shouldn’t interfere with use of the phone, I would likely get annoyed with it when I was doing anything other than typing. Since a pair of these will only set you back $7.99, you don’t really have a whole lot to lose. So if you’re looking to improve your typing, I’d give it a shot.
