Talk about laying the smack down on a Guinness Book of World Records speed texting record! Rachael Loncar was down at the Austin Texas Big Android BBQ and decided it was time for her to obliterate the current record of 35.54 seconds which was then held by a Swype user Franklin Page. The phrase Guinness uses is uses:
“The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.”
That is no easy sentence but Rachael beat the old record by an amazing 24.84 seconds and completed the phrase in just 10.7 seconds flat! She did not use Skype either, she used another app called Swiftkey X. Swiftkey X, which obviously by crushing the world speed texting record, has incredibly accurate predictive text.
While the Big Android BBQ event did not look to have an official Guinness representative on hand, this is an unofficial record but no less impressive to say the least. For her efforts, Rachael is taking home a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
