Best keyboard ever!! I was about to give 4 stars since it appeared that my favorite punctuation mark, the semicolon, was missing; however, as I was typing the exclamation points above, I discovered that there are shortcuts that allow you to use just about any character you could ask for! Plus, I absolutely love the selection arrows right above the keyboard that allow you to put your cursor wherever you need to without taking your fingers off the keyboard. And, of course, the option for Dvorak, which is the reason l needed a new keyboard, is great. (Suggestions/corrections even seem to reflect the Dvorak layout when selected!) Even if you aren't here for a modified layout or language keyboard, I highly recommend this app. I've barely scratched the surface of the features and I'm already amazed.
I downloaded this app because I wanted to use the alternative layouts extension pack for it, so that I could use the DVORAK layout. I later added multiple other keyboards, installed separately. This is a feature-rich app that is well-designed. Little details are what seals the deal for me, making this 5 stars. The keys are a tiny bit small in the vertical direction, but this is made up for by the fact that the autocorrect works very well, and the popup key feature to get accents and other details also works well. It's gotten better over the years with updates. This keyboard has just about everything you'd need. I love the third screen of unusual characters, I love the little left and right arrows at the top, I love the words pulled from the dictionary, which is a time saver for very long words. And I especially love that this app seamlessly and quickly adds new words to the dictionary, asking you first (not doing it without permission) but making it only take a single click. Switching between layouts/languages is easy too if you install multiple ones. I've happiily reinstalled this app through multiple smartphones.
Has arrows to move cursor which is vitally needed. Problem with missing emoticons, reinstall did not help. This is not an android problem other keyboards show all emoji. Will uprate when fixed.
Good, but why always impose link between langage and layout, is there possibility to switch language without switching layout? For instance i wrote this comment using french bépo because bépo layout is not existing in english and it is really difficult because of french complétions, but switching To qwerty or other availlable english layout is not confortable too. . .
you tried but not good enough. your keyboard does not suggest sentence it only suggest words. your keyboard doesn't suggest emoji. your keyboard doesnt not learn short regularly used sentence.
Very good keyboard, could easily be a daily driver if it were predictive. If you don't need next word predictions, give it a run!

You don't need to look at the keyboard and screen separately to type a word.
