April Fools 2012, Gmail Tap

Google really enjoy April Fools Day. The web giant is known for its pranks on April 1st, and recently announced Google Maps for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Google have released their second prank of the day, named Gmail Tap.

Gmail Tap is an addition to the iOS and Android Gmail application. The app update replaced the standard keyboard with two buttons, which is used the same way as morse code. You can even type two e-mails at the same time, having two buttons at the top, and two at the bottom.

What I love about Google is that they spend so much time making a brilliant looking product and video to advertise the product, even for a joke! Despite it being an utterly stupid idea, the video made the keyboard actually look great. One thing is for sure, I want to work at Google!
