Type n Walk™ displays a transparent viewport of what's directly in front of you. This combined with your peripheral vision is just enough visual information to help you avoid obstacles -- like walking face-first into a pole!
Despite the name, Type n Walk™ is useful while you're sitting or standing too. Use it anytime you would like to keep an eye on your surroundings while you type.

I would love to love this app. It's a great idea, but it just doesn't work. Although seeing my way up the street as I type is keen, I don't hold the phone vertical to type, so I'm really only seeing what I can see anyway. It's awkward to hold the phone upright to get full benefit of the app.
Also, there's no way to automatically shunt the text to your chosen app (typically, one would think, SMS). So you have to laboriously click the send, click SMS, click the recipient (each time!), and click the send again to actually send each message. And the camera is NOT on for any of that, so you're blind during that part of the process.
Sorry. I can't recommend.
“Type” not “text”
I think that a lot of these people writing the review are not understanding what its for. Lets review the title, “type n walk” meaning you can type whatever you want while walking. It does not say “text n walk” or “text message n walk” it was not designed to send only a message, but it has that capability to do so. Its not perfect, but what did you expect from a small developer of apps. Great idea, ok deployment. I would rate this a 3.5 if I could.
I bought this against my better judgment. A waste. You can type and get distracted by where you are walking but you won't see the car that's about to hit you. And you'll definitely get hit as you shift over to messaging to send your text and you have to look up the person thru your contacts. %#}£ Splat! Bang!!! Boom!!! 😕. Yikes!
