Awsome, needs work Finally a keyboard like I need it. After a steep learning curve you start to type blindly and without the otherwise typical errors. When you've come to this, you'd like to have more pro-features, though. (1) Add a transparent mode (beyond master mode) so one can use and view the whole screen while typing blindly. (2) In portrait mode allow placing the keyboard further up (avoids hand cramps). (3) Add a key repeat. (4) Allow configuring of characters generated by keys. (5) Allow configuring of size.
This is great! How awesome to have a chorded keyboard on Android! Works relatively well and feels comfortable to use in landscape mode. Different button colours, as well as the alternate layout (which I did have some trouble getting to work). A good middle point for me until I can afford a FrogPad or build my own key pad.
Great for tablets I recently started using a large 10-inch tablet and was finding it very difficult to type while holding the tablet with two hands in landscape mode. This keyboard completely alleviates the problem, all alphanumeric keys, special symbols, and even several control keys can all be comfortably typed using only the thumbs and without having to reach towards the center of the screen more than an inch or so. Overall though this app is lacking in features. This keyboard would be a real killer if it allowed for typing multiple chord-characters without having to lift both fingers, word-ersase, or implemented auto-complete system. Great idea, but needs more work to be a contender.
overall very good I've been looking around for a keyboard that allows me to type without looking on a touch screen, and I believe that with some practice ill be able to do that using this keyboard. I like the optimized layout, as I use the optimised dvorak layout on my computer keyboard and have become accustomed to easy access to commonly-used keys. The reason behind giving this app only four stars is that there is no ":" button in this keyboard. I would like to see the symbols expanded to include ":," ";" and other symbols
Doesn't work. Doesn't work on Lollipop. If it did I would use it. Also, it would be better if it worked with all apps like a built in keyboard.
Small bug C+D chord in SYMBOL mode is mapped to ! instead of | F+A chord in SYMBOL mode is mapped to ? instead of ~ Applies to optimised layout as well as standard layout (English). Would be nice to see these fixed for terminal emulator work.
