Posted: 21 Oct 2011 05:01 AM PDT

As you know, many people have problems with adjusting to the touchscreen keyboards on their smartphones, and we've seen all sorts of different keyboard solutions for smartphones, but none of those solutions used icons instead of text characters.

Spain/UK-based company Siine has been working on a new keyboard called Siine Writer for you Android device. Unlike other apps, Siine Writer doesn't use characters, but instead, it uses icons, and each icon represents a different phrase, so you'll be able to type your text messages a lot faster with Siine Writer app. This app comes with several preloaded phrases, but you can change them to fit your writing style, create new icons and phrases or get more phrases from virtual gallery.

At first, it might be hard for you to get used to Siine Writer, and although Siine Writer might not be the perfect keyboard, it's still worth trying, so make sure you try it since it's free on Android Market.

Tweet Speaker for iOS reads your tweets to you

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 04:03 AM PDT

Sometimes you cannot read each tweet on Twitter, especially when you're driving or focusing on something more important, but luckily for you, there's a app for iOS that can read tweets to you.

Tweet Speaker is the latest Twitter client, and unlike other Twitter clients out there, Tweet Speaker can actually read you your tweets while you're focusing on something else. Text to speech function is working really well and it can recognize abbreviations and read them in their original form. Besides this, Tweet Speaker will also read you the title of the website that is included in the link, and not the URL. We also have to mention Tweet Marker, a feature that lets you pause the reading of the tweets and continue it anytime later. This feature is rather useful, especially if you can't listen all of your tweets at one time.

Tweet Speaker is a great app for your iOS device, and if you want to try it out, you can get from Apple App Store for $2.99.

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 10:51 AM PDT

In order to enhance your gaming or multimedia experience, we have seen all sorts of weird devices, but this latest device will let you actually smell the video game or movie that you're currently watching.

This new device is called SMELLIT, and it is designed by French company Olf-action, and according to its creators, SMELLIT should allow you to smell your favorite movies and video games. This device comes with interesting design, and it actually looks like a pair of speakers, but sadly, SMELLIT is still a prototype, so we doubt that we'll see it on the market anytime soon. List of aromas that SMELLIT would be able to produce is still unknown along with the way that SMELLIT produces all of these smells.

As we said earlier, SMELLIT is still a prototype, but it was shown at Lisbon Design Show in Portugal recently, however, we doubt that we'll see it in stores anytime soon.
