Graffiti™ is a replacement for the built-in on-screen keyboard, also called an input method. With Graffiti, you no longer type but you draw Graffiti characters with your finger or a compatible stylus. Graffiti characters are mostly single-stroke drawings that closely match the usual alphabet, but are simplified to make entry faster and easier. For example, the letter "A" is entered with a stroke that looks like an upside-down "V", saving time that you do not need to cross the "A" in the middle. Same for the letter "T", which is entered almost like a "7".

There are text and numeric input areas, improving the recognition of your input. Strokes drawn in the text area will only be interpreted as letters; strokes in the numeric area will be interpreted as numbers .

If you were a user of a PalmOS based PDA in the past, this will all be very familiar to you as the input method used by those devices was a stylus drawing Graffiti strokes in an input area at the bottom of the display. But even if you were not a Graffiti user before, you should give it a try now if you find that the on-screen keyboard doesn't suit your input style.

Don't know the Graffiti alphabet? After installing and enabling Graffiti, just draw a stroke up from the Graffiti input area into the main display area and the help screen appears. Tap to switch between the six stroke help screens.

On Note 8- Pops up when reading not replying to TXT messages. Remains on screen after switching to another App (prevents answering phone calls, etc.) unless manually closed in TXT App. Cannot find dark mode selection. Older issue is inability to turn OFF accented characters, which causes deviations to PARC Graffiti. As a long time PARC Graffiti user it's still better than other options, but not worth learning for new users in English language (no accented letters) use.

Update 2/15/2024: Needs fix for android 14. Graffiti launches when an app is launched even if the app isn't asking for input. Pad stays on. Please fix. 2023 Absolutely luv this app. Have been using it since it was first released. Works great on Samsung phones and tablets. Don't mind not having dark mode in V2. Input area is big and grey. Graffiti is much, much better than any others or typing with thumbs!

It's easy to start using it, being very familiar with the Palm. But it's not very configurable and not at all easy to switch to other Keyboards. For most Keyboards I can do something as simple as a long press on the space bar bring up a list of my other Keyboards, like Gboard, Samsung Keyboard, Gboard Ukrainian, Gboard German. With Graffiti you need to go into Android settings and deselect Graffiti from the list of keyboards. It's impossible to set the on-screen size, and it's HUGE!
