Technical Writers often burn midnight oil typing long, lengthy, and often boring documents for their bored employers.
Let’s face it- typing is hard work considering that you need to work with 26 characters keys and five helper keys (alt, spacebar, shift, capslock and shift). Wouldn’t it be cool if you can reduce your work by typing from only two keys instead of 31 keys, usually required for normal typing?
Google, once again, comes to your rescue by providing a technology called Google Tap (aka Gmail Tap) that can make your dreams come true. With Google Tap, it’s time to move beyond the QWERTY keyboard. Google Tap allows you to
type tap a letter, email, or a user manual with just two keys!
This means that you can reduce your workload by 29 keys and increase your efficiency to almost double (actually 93.54%) by using this charismatic application. Not only that, you can
type tap those procedures and lengthy instruction on your android phone while taking that smelly subway back to home. There is no need to stay late at work anymore!
With Gmail Tap on your phone, you’ll be able to:
- Tap without looking at your screen.
- Replace 26 keys with 2 [not including the helper keys].
- Double your productivity by typing two user manuals at once.
How Google Tap Works?
Google Tap turns each key into a dot or a dash, thereby allowing you to type by Morse code.

Yippy, you got fooled!
My sincere apologies for joining hands with Google to trick you on April Fools’ Day. As this CNet article reports, this is a hilarious prank by Google! I have to admit that I got fooled by it as well .
On a second thought, this idea is not that bad. Would you consider using Google Tap to write those long user guide and online help? Leave a comment and let me know!
