Honestly I love this keyboard, it's private, it has autocorrect, and its easy to navigate symbols/letters. A couple of quality of life things though: I'd love for the apostrophe/period and the question/comma buttons to be consolidated so there can be a bigger space bar, and also a theme to get rid of the arrow keys, I generally don't need those so it'd be nice to have it an optional toggle so I can have a shorter keyboard. Other than that the switch to this keyboard has been smooth!

Highly customizable keyboard with split keyboard feature in landscape mode which I need. Has no swipe capabilities and the layout of the settings is like a complicated labyrinth but if you find them all you can design a great keyboard for yourself. Some bugs have been ignored for years but it is an open source project so who am I to complain? Good job all around.

Negative 1 for COVID ad on top of keyboard. Really not needed and is destracting. Cant find a way to get rid of it. Ultimately uninstalling because of that. Otherwise OK keyboard as far as privacy keyboards go, but still like openboard better. This has more customization (and I really like the animation), but spell check doesn't seem to be as good. It also takes a little bit to get use to the layout (not too long though)
