Touchpal keyboard for tablets gets update; brings ICS support

TouchPal has recently released a major update for its tablet keyboard app. This update brings the Ice Cream Sandwich support along with several new features. Most prominent of these features is TouchPal Curve, which is a Swype like technology to type without taking off your finger from keyboard, but also adds prediction in the loop.

TouchPal for Tablet Version 4.8.1 change-log:

  • Split keyboard – Use gestures to split the keyboard. It’s easier to type when you are holding tablets in landscape by two hands.
  • Resize keyboard – you can also resize the keyboard to a smaller size using gestures.
  • TouchPal Curve – the first predictive sliding in the world. Pause in the middle of sliding to get long words predicted.
  • Intelligent next-word prediction: It may save up to 80% keystrokes.

Being in beta testing, it is still free in the Android Market, but won’t be for long, as company is preparing for the stable version release next month.
