I bought through the company’s website, and shipping was a lot faster than I expected. Five hours later I was already up to 25 wpm, and loving the crap out of it.Once your brain acclimatizes to using your fingers like this, it’s really easy to learn a new setup, which you’re able to do on their website to fit your needs.I use it mainly for writing, and having my whole keyboard and mouse available on one hand is great. I’m still working on the air mouse and gestures.Overall it’s just fun, a great conversation piece, and everyone’s always amazed at what it can do.
I have been following Tap forever and I am so glad pulled the trigger on the Tap 2. This thing is super cool.I’m a graphic designer and spend a LOT of hours on the computer. I have adopted Tap into my workflow in a couple key ways – first and foremost as an ergonomic keyboard that lets me work anywhere without discomfort. As a creative I like to work outside, on the bus, wherever I feel inspired – and Tap lets me toss my keyboard in my laptop bag and go. I also like that I can assign Adobe shortcuts to finger taps.Second, I really enjoy the remote controls activated through air gestures. They are really intuitive and make it feel like I’m living in the future. I love switching the music with the flick of my wrist or scrolling on my feed with air swipes without even having to touch my phone.The air gestures can be a little tricky, but I found if you swipe with your whole hand, not your fingers it works really well. Once it clicks, it’s incredible.
I’ve had the product for about a week. Learning it been a rocky start.Maybe I’m too old (in my 60s), but learning the finger strokes once past the simple onesseems to be very hard for me. Pressing 2 or three fingers simultaneously, while NOT pressingthe others is very difficult for me.The TapGenius app on iOS has tutorials, but I keep forgetting the keystrokes long beforegetting the entire alphabet down pat.I’ve connected to my iPhone via BlueTooth OK, but the iPhone doesn’t have a curser, so I’mat a loss on how to use the mouse “gestures”.Pairing to a Windows 10 PC was successful, but I seem to have problems switching between the TAPkeyboard and the desktop keyboard, or at least disable TAP so I can type using QWERTY on the keyboard.There must be a way, but the training hasn’t revealed an efficient way to do this yet.I haven’t given up, but I wasn’t expecting the steep learning curve I’ve encountered so far.I seem to get it down, but set it aside for a day, and what I learned slips away. Very frustrating,as most of the accessory apps require you to learn the entire alphabet to play.Wondering if others are having a better experience acclimating to TAPping.

I’m on day two of Tap ownership and the TapAcademy and closing in on a max speed of . . . 13 wpm. So the learning curve is a little daunting. But I am having fun with it and steadily improving! I’m writing this review with it!I don’t have any iOS devices, which *seem* to be what airMouse is best suited for and I haven’t been able to get that working.I generally type on a QWERTY keyboard at about 100 wpm. Learning other keyboard layouts has been hard for me – even after using DVORAK exclusively for 2 weeks I would still revert back to QWERTY if I didn’t think about it. That’s a nice element of TAP – it’s brand new so there’s no decades of muscle memory to override! I also like that there are easy shortcuts for the hard letters that would involve holding my ring finger up and tapping the surrounding fingers, which is really hard.
Not for people with limited dexterity in their hands.

When you see a device like the Tap Strap 2, you may instantly question does it really do what it says it can do. I received mine about 2 weeks ago and I will go through the experience with you. When I received it in the mail, it comes nicely packaged and reminds me of opening up a new iPhone out of the package. The contents include the Tap Strap 2 and a container that can charge it up to 10 times. There is also a charger and a couple quick setup instructions and mini cheat sheets.I am very impressed with this device. In just 2 weeks, I went from not being able to type at all with the new device to now typing at 26 words per minute on one hand (and growing). With this same hand, I can use the mouse with ease. I am so excited about having a vision to ditch my keyboard and mouse as well as have what feels to be a more ergonomically friendly device to use. I haven’t used the device yet for controlling my TV or Virtual Reality but excited to try that next!

I have the Tap Strap 1, and as an active user of the previous version I gave it a couple days of testing before making my judgement. Well… the new design makes the top of the knuckles completely fixed where before they had minimal play. I wouldn’t say I have huge hands – and I want it made clear that the Tap Strap 1 worked fine for me. Well, no matter how much I tried to adjust it, I could not get reliable detection of my finger movements. Whenever I’d try a single middle finger press, half the time it would also detect a ring finger press as well. Doing a ring finger press would have a 1/5 chance of middle finger detection. The air mouse settings – even when adjusting the mouse speed and sensitivity in both its app and within the OS as much as possible would very regularly jump over by about 1 line of text at a time making accurate selections near impossible. That combined with the default gestures which frankly are not well thought out. For example, to left click, you point and then raise your finger up like a gun recoiling. Unfortunately, that means where you were trying to click is now gone, and it may take half a second before it realizes “oh, gesture” and then try to make a best guess on where you were when you intended to click. It would make far more sense if left click were instead point with one finger out, others wrapped inwards like stereotypical pointing and tap your thumb to your inward curled fingers, but that’s not how they designed it. Same with many of the other gestures.I’d feel much different if this were only software issues, but frankly there are glaring hardware ones too that make gen 2 inferior to gen 1 as it lost the ability to reliably type. And unfortunately for a keyboard, being able to type is the most important piece. The rest are gimmicks.
