Did you ever get the feeling that 26 keys is just way to much for your smartphone screen? Well, that’s exactly how Google feels. Today, on this fine April 1st, Google has released Gmail Tap. This intuitive application for Android and iOS will bring back Morse Code in place of that clunk ‘ol keyboard that you’ve come to know. Gmail Tap also boasts the ability to type 2 emails at once, audio feedback, and a re-imagined auto-complete.
The keyboard takes advantage on minimalism with only 2 keys and a space bar. You can make each letter out of the two buttons by following the chart Google has created. Most letters are made out of just a tap or two. “You can tap it in the morning. You can tap it at night. You can tap it in the bathroom. It’s a dot and a dash” -LL Cool J.
Surely, this looks like another one of Google’s April Fools jokes. Chrome multitask mode (multiple cursors), maps in 8 bit, all of YouTube on a DVD, and more were all released today. If you’re looking to try your luck with Morse Code, the download page for the app states that you can download it tomorrow. But don’t hold your breath.
Seriously though, happy April Fools! You certainly are not a fool, good sir. You can check out Gmail Tap for yourself here.
