A brilliant application which enables you to enter text in to iPhone by tracing word shapes rather than typing letters.

    I cannot find MxTube and KuGon in the App Store. They were the only two that sound interesting that I don't already have. So, there don't seem to really be 34, at most 32. Bummer…
