Abstract

Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer program products, for providing predictive text functionality to input devices. In one aspect, a method includes receiving a selection of a first character from a plurality of characters displayed in a virtual representation of an input device; generating one or more first selectable suggestions based on the first character; and displaying the one or more first selectable suggestions proximate to the first character in the virtual representation of the input device. The first selectable suggestions are displayed closer to the first character than any of the plurality of characters normally displayed in the virtual representation of the input device.
