By according to the development of the mobile devices, a touch screen provides the variety of inputting character and the flexibility of user interface. Currently, the physically simple touch method is widely used for English input but this simple touch is not increasing the variety of inputs and flexibility of the user interfaces. In this paper, we propose a new method to input English characters continuously by recognizing gestures instead of the simple touches. The proposed method places the rotational pickers on the screen for changing the alphabetical sequence instead of the keys and inputs English characters through the flick gestures and the touches. Simulation results show that the proposed keypad method has better performance than the keypad of the conventional methods.
