You might already be pretty speedy with your texting, but the Siine writer tool is about to make you even speedier. Founded by Ed Maklouf, the Siine writer is a keyboard app that makes the whole process of texting and emailing more efficient by using personalized emoticons and images that allow you to insert lines of text without having to physically write anything out yourself.

With the Siine writer tool, you can insert what the company calls "emoticons on steroids" -- greetings, dates, times and other communications -- with a simple tap. You can personalize exactly what you want your sign-offs and greetings to say to certain friends or other contacts (for instance, "Hey sweetie" to your boyfriend and "Hey girl" to a friend) by linking the greetings to specific icons. In this way, the Siine writer tool offers more customization than the traditional predictive keyboard. Watch the quick video here to see how Siine works.
