There is a learning curve to this app, but after some practice I found it to be highly... intuitive. I have big hands and kept wanting to extend my fingers like I do with a keyboard, but later realized the app will calibrate and respond to any hand/finger placement I find comfortable. I'm still progressing through the practice levels and hope to actually implement it with my computer in the future for fun. I do recommend reading the instructions for this app, it is confusing if you don't.

Great keyboard innovation that we don't realize we need. I've found that after several months of use, DOTKey feels intuitive. While it doesn't make a lot of difference with short messages, I've found it truly shines when taking extended notes, composing emails, or doing anything where accuracy matters. (One particularly handy situation is when writing programming snippets to help explain concepts and ideas to colleagues, which is very difficult to do with other on-screen keyboards.) I'm giving this 4 stars because I find the selection of special characters to be a little lacking, and miss some of the quality of life features found in other keyboards (such as first-letter autocapitalization, recently used emojis, and the ability to search for specific emojis)

Hi James! We are delighted that you are benefiting from DOTKey. We continue to strive to improve existing features and to introduce new ones as quickly as we are able. We can say that autocapitalization is coming, and we like your suggestions for emojis. If you have other ideas please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Thanks!
So playing with this keyboard for about an hour after downloading, I can't seem to figure out how to get out of Cursor mode if I go accidentally into it. And when typing "Th..." it automatically gives me "The" when I really wanted a different word like "this" so I have to backspace. There's a few other small things that bug me a bit, but I can't word that... so maybe in another review later.

Hi! Get in and out of cursor mode by swiping up with your index and ring fingers. Tap the '?' button on the top right of the keyboard anytime to see hints for the current mode. As for the autocomplete behavior you are describing; DOTKey doesn't do this, we only give suggestions for you to choose, so this must be from the app you are typing in...
