I have an idea: Wouldn't it be better if there was an app for touchscreens that predicts which letters are least likely to be typed next and shrinks them!



I've heard a few times before that the iOS keyboard invisibly grows the touch target on the letters it predicts are most likely to be typed next. Unfortunately, my quick attempt to find a source failed.

Wouldn't that destroy the muscle memory involved in learning / remembering where the keys are on your soft keyboard?

Nonetheless, if you believe you could make this work, why not do it yourself?

Windows used to have menus that would re-arrange themselves and show most-used choices at the top a few versions back. People hated it. Destroys memory.
