App of the Day: Siine Keyboard
Siine is a keyboard that lets you program in your own shortcuts for texting.
Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.
If you're a hoopy frood frustrated with how un-hip your Android's keyboard is, Siine will make your texting life much more to your taste. It has a series of buttons that act as shortcuts, and you can tap each button up to three times to get three words for each shortcut; for example, the "Hey" shortcut can be tapped to get "Heya" and "Howdy", as well. You can make your own shortcuts, and the app includes the option to purchase packs of premade shortcuts, too. I will note that the app popped up a warning stating that it might be able to read any information typed on the keyboard, though, so if you regularly type sensitive things on your phone, you might want to bear that in mind.
