TapLaunch™ lets users customize shortcut keys to start their favorite apps from their keyboard
Redwood Shores, CA, June 25, 2014 – Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ mobile accessories, today introduced its new KeyFolio Fit Universal 10” Tablet Case for Android featuring TapLaunch, the first keyboard case app of its kind designed to offer immediate access to your favorite apps directly from your keyboard. Kensington TapLaunch lets Android tablet users customize three shortcut keys to quickly start their favorite apps — saving time from navigating through a tablet’s touchscreen interface when productivity time counts.
Kensington also expands its offering of universal tablet folios with three additional new products. The Kensington KeyFolio Fit™ Universal Tablet Case for Windows® 8, Kensington Portafolio Fit™ and Kensington Comercio Fit™ offer lightweight and secure protection in a thin form factor that complements the design tenets of the Android and Windows tablet market. The tablet market continues to broaden beyond iOS devices and Kensington is expanding its assortment to address the productivity and folio needs of those users.
“We know there is a growing demand among keyboard case users for a more customizable and productive experience with Android and Windows tablets, and that’s why we’ve developed this new line of universal folios and TapLaunch app,” said Jim Murakami, Global Product Manager at Kensington. “We’re happy to introduce TapLaunch as the first app of its kind that’s compatible with a specific keyboard case product offering. Now users can simply launch the tablet apps they need directly from their keyboard instead of having to navigate through their touchscreen interface in several steps.”
