MIX10: Twitter by Morse code coming to Windows Phone

LAS VEGAS — A developer built a Windows Phone app overnight that enabled tweeting by Morse code on Twitter.

Bill Buxton, principal researcher at Microsoft, speaking this morning at MIX, said he was in a meeting on Monday talking about developer tools for the Windows Phone, the iPhone competitor Microsoft plans to start selling at the end of this year.

“They said, ‘Bill what are we missing?’ ” Buxton said. “I said what we’re missing is, with touchscreens you actually have to look when you text.” Wouldn’t it be great if a 5th grader could text her friend under the desk during class? he said.

At 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Buxton checked his e-mail and David Yack had sent Buxton the answer: a phone app that lets you tweet by Morse code.

The application features a square tile on the phone screen that the user can tap out code on.
