It's OK. So far the best alternative I've found for privacy. Swype input still needs some tweaking, keyboard language randomly changes from what I had it set at. Autocorrect is somewhat limited and sometimes doesn't know what I mean when I'm only one letter away from a word and when you go back to correct a word, you have to watch because ot only looks at the part you just fixed instead of the whole word and tries to correct that.

It seems the original developer of this keyboard is no longer? I realize the keyboard is open source and all but it is a bit disappointing that it hasn't seen an update since almost six months or more ago. The colored navigation bar hasn't worked correctly ever since Android 11. Not a complete deal breaker but it definitely makes the keyboard feel more in sync with the device without the ugly black bar on the bottom.

The spacebar was super tiny, which I didn't like, and the long press options made no sense to me. Not bad, just not what I'm used to and I didn't want to spend that much time relearning a keyboard layout. The theming options are (some form of) dark / white or an auto theme with your app that might be a truly obnoxious color. But otherwise I liked how you could customize the strength of the feedback, and the rest of the options looked interesting too
