Pretty convenient with a couple nit-picky issues. The app is stuck on one side of the screen or the other & can only be changed in settings - free-floating at least as an option would be good (and automatic placement by active app would be ideal). I also wish it would return to where I was mid-edit automatically after switching instead of me having to re-tap to edit (and inevitably missing the spot thanks to my fat fingers). Other than that it works quite well. Thanks!

Thank you for your reply. Positioning all over the screen is a good idea, it will just take time to be implemented because I'm busy. For the automatic placement and auto selection, it requires too much modification inside the OS so it will not be done (root access needed), because uses an already integrated keyboard solution. Sorry for that. :/
Thanks for the app. It would be cool if there was a feature to switch keyboards in one tap, instead of having to pull up the menu and then select one. I have two keyboards that I switch between so I'm looking for a toggle button basically. Also I can't remove the default Samsung keyboard from that menu, which is quite annoying. Would be a cool feature!

A good keyboard switcher app, but one problem: - When the button position is not locked, attempting to press the button tends to move it instead of opening the "Select keyboard" dialog, and it's not clear how it distinguishes between an attempt to drag it to a new location and an attempt to tap it. ...and three features I'd like to see: - An option to require a long press rather than a single tap. Because it's always on the screen, this is important to reduce the likelihood launching it unintentionally and interfering with use of other apps. - An option to have it only available when a keyboard is active - A "toggle mode", which has it automatically switch between two keyboards rather than launch the "select keyboard" dialog. A great way to implement this would be to allow the user to set a primary and secondary keyboard, and have the button automatically switch to the primary keyboard, unless the primary keyboard is already selected, in which case it would switch to the secondary. That way pressing the button would switch from either of those keyboards to the other, and from any other keyboard to the primary. Also, it would be great if in toggle mode there were an option to have a single tap toggle, and a long press launch the "Select keyboard" dialog. This could coexist with the first bullet point by giving the user a choice between requiring a long tap to toggle and ignoring single taps, OR having a single tap toggle and a long press launch the dialog.
