Great keyboard with excellent prediction capability. The only small issue is that it doesn't have a substitute for the Esc and Tab keys (they are very useful in a Linux terminal). Edit, after 6 months of intensive usage on priv: it's the best keyboard ever. Is there chance the BlackBerry keyboard would be available on other android devices?
As non-English layout differs in different BlackBerry models it to would be ideal to add possibility to choose or setup your layout. Main problem is that top keys row on keyboard is same as Q10/Classic, but second and third - as Passport (which is horrible, as Passport layout is not in line with PC layout). Result is horrible! Standard feature on Cyrillic keyboard is that C and с keys are in the same place. Add customizable keyboard layouts for non-Latin keyboard! Your layout is counter-intuitive.
I like the keyboard, after the recent updates, it has been a lot cooler, but what I am missing as an Indian is a good Hindi keyboard. Though, you have added Hindi Keyboard but that's very difficult to use. Please add the keyboard which support transliteration. That would be very helpful and grateful. Please try to add this in future update. Currently I have to use Gboard to type in Hindi, and you guys have also made the changing the input difficult in the BlackBerry native keyboard.
Please allow purchase for use on other non BlackBerry devices! Love the BlackBerry virtual keyboard on my Priv and going to miss it when I have to switch to the S8! (Priv has been dropped one too many times)
Something happened when it upgraded to a new black layout. It no longer types out the text as you say it or gives you Alternatives to the written phrase when you click on it. It just waits for you to say the whole thing and then and then it appears all at once. It also has more errors and writes out more nonsensical things. It's also ignoring the word that and just put in a dot. It seems the only way to fix it is going in manually. Now as I disabled the extension today it works much better. The only issue I had with the prior version was that the use of caps n symbol key was disabled in a lot of the apps in dictation mode
Fantastic keyboard. Would like wider "frets" like on the BB10 devices and would like to have BlackBerry-styled emojies. New Quick Modes is an awesome feature. Word prediction is inconsistent... sometimes it doesn't offer predictions.
• Use Quick Modes to quickly access dictation mode, emojis, text selection mode, and the clipboard right from the keyboard.
• Minor enhancements and stability fixes
Note: You might be prompted with new permissions for audio, which is necessary to provide the enhanced voice controls in the BlackBerry Keyboard.
