The Graffiti 2 Application is probably overlooked by many Palm users. This application shows how to correctly input letters, characters that the Palm device can detect. By spending a bit of time learning how to input characters correctly, it can save you a lot of time and less frustration. This application demonstrates how to create different Graffiti 2 strokes that can be detected by the Palm device.
The best way to show what the Graffiti 2 application does and how it demonstrates this is to show a simulation of the application.
Simulation of the Graffiti 2 Application
Alternative Flash links: Image Shack
This simulation does an overall navigation of the Graffiti 2 applicaton and shows the first few screens that will show the first time the Graffiti 2 application is launched. All subsequent launches of the Graffit 2 application will only show the remaining screens in this simulation that demonstrate how to input Graffiti 2 strokes. But, you can still access the screens by going to the Menu options.
The simulation will play through to the end unless I’ve inserted a pop up note to explain specific points.
To continue playing the simulation, press the button.
To go back to a previous paused segment, click on the button.
To pause the simulation at any time, press the button. To continue after it’s paused, press the button again.
To scroll forwards or backwards in the simulation, click anywhere on the left (to go back earlier in the simulation), or right (to go forward in the simulation) on the progress bar.
If you haven’t read my previous posting Memo pad application part 3 where I’ve briefly discussed Graffiti 2 and text entry methods, I’d suggest you read it because it covers a lot about Graffiti 2 and other text entry methods.
As well, here are some additional links to related postings that you may be interested in reading:
Screenshots of the Graffiti 2 Application
Here are some screenshots of the Graffiti 2 Application. I’ve put up each screenshot according to their placement in the order of the Navigation Menu.
The Graffiti 2 Application is probably one of the most overlooked applications where it does a great job of showing how to input characters in Graffiti 2 by actually doing a demonstration of the stroke on the Palm screen and allowing you to practice doing the strokes. Take some of your break time or off time to perfect your Graffiti 2 entry by running this application. You may discover that Graffiti 2 isn’t that hard to use.
EDIT March 9, 2008.
Well. It looks like only select Palm handhelds have the Graffiti 2 demo program that I’ve demonstrated previously. I usually don’t like to upload files that could give me trouble over copyright infringement. But this seems like a very helpful program that can help Palm users understand how to properly input in Graffiti 2 so I will be uploading it my servers. Please download the files and install them on your Palm. These are taken directly off my Zire 71 Palm. Please note. If I get any notifications from Palm, I will remove them off my servers.
Again, I have to keep emphasising to please back up your Palm BEFORE you install the files in case any software conflict occurs. I will not be liable for any problems you encounter. Check out my backup blog posting for back up program suggestions including freeware.
