Oh, wow, this has just allowed me to connect my Stenoboard-based steno keyboard to an elderly Android tablet that doesn't have much other use, and I can put any custom dictionary in, including the standard Plover one. I now have a remarkably portable tablet-based steno machine - amazing! (I did also try the on-screen keyboard and it was surprisingly easy to get the hang of - I'm probably not going to take the time to get the hang of swiping between the letters, but it's nice to see how it's been done.)
So much more is capable I figured that this would be an app where you can hit multiple keys at a time, not slide your fingers around on a too-sensitive plane with keys. I feel like that takes away from the whole point if steno. Full disclosure: I'm just some kid just getting started, but I don't think anyone would disagree that this could have been better implemented.
Easy and intuitive I have only been using this program for a day, but using the Plover tutorials and the lookup dictionairy, I'm now typing all my messages using this app. It's not fast yet but already I prefer it to a normal keyboard. To the developer - the app sometimes shuts down and takes a few seconds to restart while in use.
Dictionary installation? Unable to select dictionaries that were unzipped to device. Just shows a few apps like music player and gallery but no way to find a file ending in .json
Absolutely love it Great for when I want to write in Steno. I love the raw Steno for messages to my court reporter friends. Thank you for this app.
Amazing concept ...but unusable in practice.
