Apple may have bought a keyboard app that tracks your fingers as you type
Dryft claims to make "typing on tablets feel natural again," and it's all thanks to its finger-tracking technology that is capable of detecting the difference between resting your fingers on a keyboard or actual typing.
By waiting to display the keyboard until after you've placed your fingers on the tablet's screen, Dryft can ensure your fingers are touching the home keys without you having to situate your fingers at a specific location.
In many ways, the Dryft acquisition makes a lot of sense for Apple. In the past, third-party keyboards have been a signature feature of Android phones, but beginning with Apple's launch of iOS 8 in September, iPhone users can now install various third-party keyboards - plenty of which have been top sellers in the App Store.
With more and more people interested in customizing their keyboards - and with rumors of Apple launching a larger, 12.9-inch iPad Pro later this year - it makes perfect sense that Apple could be investing in keyboard technology.
