One common complaint of almost all mobile devices is that typing on them is a real chore. Cliquick looks to address this issue by providing a new keypad with finger-friendly keys to make typing quicker and easier.

Cliquick claims to improve your typing speed by 100% over the standard Pocket PC keypad. I'm not quite sure it's this much different, but it's definitely faster, for a few different reasons. Firstly, it reconfigures the position of letters on the numeric pad so that the most frequently-used letters are assigned in the first position, meaning you only have to press the button once in order to input the letter. What's more, there are only two characters per key, so in general it requires less taps to enter words.

Another important element of Cliquick is the integrated word auto-completion feature, which is generally pretty accurate. The program will also suggest words as you type, which I personally find a little annoying, but which can be useful for some people.

Cliquick is highly customizable too, allowing you to not only choose from three keypad sizes, but also to apply actions such as vibration when a key is pressed, or typewriter sounds that play when you enter text.

Cliquick is currently only available with English or Russian localizations, so it may be frustrating or even impossible for you to use if you speak a different language to these.

If you want to improve your typing speed on your Pocket PC, then Cliquick comes highly recommended.

    "Have paid for activation that does not work, No support"

    Nice keyboard layout when loaded to my Samsung Omnia i910. However no support at all after paying $$ for it. More.

    "why didn't anybody think of this before?!"

    This layout really made me think... why such a layout isn't provided in regular cell phones?! without adding any keys, ... More.
