Google has acquired touch-screen keyboard software developer BlindType.
The company said that it had been acquired by Google in a posting to its blog. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Operating out of San Francisco, BlindType develops software that allows smartphones to detect and autocorrect typing on touch-screen keyboards. The software aims to not only correct spelling mistakes, but also to adjust keyboard recognition and response to the user's typing style and tendencies.
The company has demonstrated its software on both the iPhone and Android platforms.
"We know that typing on your mobile device can be a frustrating experience, which is why we've worked hard to make touch typing easier and faster than ever, the way it should be," the company said.
"We're excited to join Google, and look forward to the great opportunities for mobile innovation that lie ahead."
No further details about the deal or Google's plans for BlindType were disclosed.
