Major Payne

I’ve always had problems with data entry on my Pocket PC.

Not problems as such, I just find the stylus cumbersome sometimes, and don’t really want a device with a full keyboard (my next handset was going to be the HTC Touch Diamond, until I read about the HTC Touch Pro yesterday on

I want a couple of input methods really:

  • Stylus / Writing – I find the Block Recogniser quite adequate for this.
  • One handed – Something I can type with one handed whilst walking down the street.
  • Full on – A keyboard when I’ve got a whole page of data to write and can just hammer away at it.

I tried ThumbKey last week, I haven’t really got to grips with it – but the same as any new input method it requires:

  • Time
  • Patience
  • More patience
  • A willingness to make mistakes
  • More patience

Does anyone recommend any input method for their Pocket PC?
