Please provide a few sentences to sum up the most important aspects of your App.

 

The goal of our app is to not only generate the next word but the rest of the sentence. We build on previous conversations and anonymously collected metadata from all users to build a bank of word associations.


 

Please provide a description of your App in 500-1,000 words. Be sure to include at least 1) what it does, 2) why people will want it (benefits), and 3) how you will sustain it (explain business model).

Our innovative new Android keyboard app uses the same technology as the world renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. We build on previous conversations and anonymously collected data from all users to build a bank of word associations. The goal of our app is to not only generate the next word but the rest of the sentence. The name of our app is a portmanteau of talking and our inspiration Stephen Hawking.


U.S. citizens spend on average around an 1 hour a day on their phones with 21% (or 21 mins) spent texting, that is 127.4 hours a year. If we can help you save even 10% (or 12.7 hours), it would be a great accomplishment for us. Wouldn't you rather do the things you enjoy like spending time with loved ones rather than sitting on your phone?Source

Our business model is simple, we both want to further our knowledge in app development and design. Tawking is a labor of love while also honoring a great person.
