This keyboard is both amazing and superior to it competition from Google (gboard)and micro$oft (Swiftkey)... as a long time user of both I grew tired of the datamining both do when you use their apps. And being forced by both to adopt AI was the last straw. Also making the switch I noticed a very dramatic decrease in my data usage which illustrated just how much information was being sent. Says it does work with the latest version of andoid but it does 100%. . Its what I typed this review with

I find this to be a quite decent kb alternative option. It can use some word prediction which seems to be slightly lacking. It doesn't understand single letters such as "A" or "I" as words until you add them to the dictionary which is a tiny issue. I do see great potential in this however. I wrote this review with it.

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!
