Google has acquired BlindType, a developer of apps to make typing easier on touch-screen phones, the small software maker announced Friday. The move comes just a couple of months after BlindType demonstrated an Android version of its software, which was originally developed for the iPhone and iPad.

With BlindType, touch-screen phone owners don't have to worry about accuracy, the company says.

Typing is harder on the virtual keyboards of touch-screen phones than on physical keyboards, because typists receive no physical feedback about where their fingers are landing in relation to the on-screen keys. BlindType's software tries to guess what they meant to type by looking at what other keys are close to the ones they actually hit.

The company first developed its software for Apple's iOS, but on Aug. 7, posted a video to its blog of an Android version in development.

That same blog on Friday carried the message "We are excited to announce that BlindType has been acquired by Google!"

Look at the videos of BlindType, it looks awesome.

This is good for people who don't know about Swype, don't like it or aren't able to use it.

I think Swype is great, I have it on my Android HD2 and I think it is much quicker than typing on a physical phone keyboard (previously owned a G1) and I was pretty quick with the physical keyboard.
