QuickType is a keyboard that sits in your Graffiti area. There are several different keyboard layouts available which can dramatically improve your text entry without giving up screen real estate. The built in keyboard is still available and you can write Graffiti directly through the keyboard. QuickType now comes with three different keyboard layouts and you can always create your own. The first is the original QuickType layout. The second is OPTI created by I. Scott MacKenzie and Shawn X. Zhang they actually did real analysis with users and bench marks. The third is good old alphabetical.
