1. A computer-implemented method of processing user input, comprising:

  • mapping a sequence of touches on an input device to candidate sequences of one or more characters of a displayed keyboard interface;

    assigning to each of the candidate sequences an initial score based at least in part on a keyboard geometry-based value associated with each of the touches with respect to candidate keys;

    determining a refined score with respect to a subset of the candidate sequences having the highest initial scores; and

    selecting a candidate sequence for inclusion in a result set if the refined score is greater than an initial score of a candidate sequence not included in the subset of the candidate sequences having the highest initial scores.
