    Pressing R3 When Typing....

    Anyone else tried this out yet?

    When you are typing a message on the PS4 if you press R3 you can actually use the controller to type in text just by moving it, tried this out last night and although it's pretty cool I won't be using it much as I found it quicker just to use the D-Pad, you don't need the PS Camera in order to do it either, just wondering if anyone else had tried it out?

    I've tried it. I found it worked pretty good though I kind of wish you could use the touchpad also..

    I've used it too. Works pretty well.

    As for the touchpad - have you tried using that in War Thunder? It's so damn sensitive it's quite difficult to use. Shame you can't adjust the sensitivity of it.

    It works so nicely too. Super fast typing compared to controller navigation lol.

    I tried it last week when IGN - Greg Miller posted a video of it. It took a couple minutes to get used to as I was expecting left/right tilting to move it left and right, instead it was more like twisting left and right on the controller in the horizontal plane.

    I found it much quicker to search and select with the D-Pad. Especially since they're using QWERTY keyboard. Really quick.

    I don't use the keyboard mode frequently on PS4 and don't think I ever will, so I'm not going to invest the time to become more proficient at using the R3 mode, but for those who do use it alot, I'm sure they could become better at using it in R3 mode.

    Yeah same here just thought it was a nifty way of doing it and something I think I would have only found out if I had pressed it by mistake.

    It is my default way of input. Got used to it pretty fast too. +1 for Sony.

    I've tried it, but I prefer to use my phone (via pairing with the app).

    I've been using this a lot lately. Much faster than using the stick to find the letters

    Haven't tried the app typing yet.

    I use the phone app all the time for sending messages and photos but for random text entries I haven't bothered to use the phone yet. I'll give it a try later.

    It's just so much sexier using my officially licensed PS3 Bluetooth keyboard on PS4... I like to type a lot

    I did this immediately as well, I thought it would be a pain in the ass to use, but damn I am very fast and accurate typing now! Just another reason to get the camera for you people who don't own one yet!

    I tried it for a few minutes but couldn't get the hang of it. I'm just so used to doing it on the d pad. I wish they had swype of the touch pad honestly. Was surprised they didn't.

    Yeah I don't know how it does it but it can do it even without having the PS4 camera which I think is really clever!
