About this app

No permissions for the app, but all options for you!

The Keyboard Designer is a complete keyboard that can be used in all apps. It gives you the freedom to customize them, design a new keyboard yourself or, after purchasing the extended design package, import pre-made keyboards. Not only can you change the colors, but you can also freely arrange the keys and assign functions to them.

This app does not request access to the network - therefore all data remains on your device!

Hint: The keyboard of the smartwatch can not be modified on the smartwatch, please use your connected mobile device to do so and synchronize it with your smartwatch!

A keyboard must match the following requirements:

1. No connection to the internet
A keyboard is used to enter very private data like passwords. Due to this a keyboard must not request a connection to the internet. Only by this it is possible to ensure that no data can be send by the device! Also contacts or similar private data must not be accessed by the keyboard. This means: no permissions for the app!

2. Individual adjustments
The keyboard is the most used app on a mobile device. Therefore ist must be perfectly adjustable to the needs of the user! The position of the keys, it dimensions, labels, colors and borders do define the look. By the assignment of a powerfull function the user can enter a text very fast. So with this app you can create the keyboard like you need it. This means: all options to you!

3. Easy usage
As the screen size is very limited, entering a text is not easy. The present functions and their smart accessability allow the usage even in hard conditions (walk with mobile device in one hand and a coffee in the other) or for handicaped people. An edit bar shows the entered letters in a hughe way and allows to manipulate them directly. If it is not obvious which key was pressed, a resized view of the keyboard is shown with big keys. And if you ever want to do any changes on the keyboard, you can hit a key to open the designer and make it so!

4. Speed
A keyboard must react on a keypress very fast - otherwise errors are the logical consequence. This app does not use the functions to implement a keyboard that are provided by the system, but it shows all keys in a graphic. If a key is touched, its assigned function is send to the editor. Its very fast due to this simplified structure.

After the installation some example designs are shown. They alread contain all necessary keys and can be used or modified (e.g. to add your own special characters like umlauts, glyphs, change duration of pressed keys or make big keys). It is also possible to make completely new designs.

If you want you can purchase the Extended Design Package within the app. This will provide you additional features like export, import, rounded keys, color gradients and so on. You find more information on the website

HINT: When the keyboard is selected, a hint is shown by the system, that the keyboard can collect data. This is shown even when a keyboard has no internet connection and it cannot send any data!

very good but glitched? when i saw the new things added i went to try it out. starting with background images so i went a followed the steps sharing the photo to the app. but then it glitched closed out saying it stopped working. the image is on the keyboard but. i cant open the app now. i tried unselecting my keyboard and opening but didn't work. i checked permissions none were required. the image was of the correct size. so but other than this i have always enjoyed this app.

After taking a step back and recuperating my losses (Rage Quit) I had a second go-around with the Keyboard Designer. Realize the function of the "design" and "mod," the design gives the new composition/layout of the keyboard while the mod changes the function of the keys. The App isn't easy to use and that is expected when it comes to full customisation without encoding. This app is one-of-a-kind and gives me exactly what I need. (Thanks for the Redo button! I appreciate it very much!)

UPDATE: Thanks for your updated review, Michael! Every star counts for this young project to have a chance against the "big" keyboards! I will add a hint to this comment as soon as the undo/redo feature is available! 😉

It takes some getting used to, not everything is intuitive, but it was just what we needed. Typing quirks are usually quite frustrating to do, but this keyboard is so immensely customizable that it makes it easy. We can create quick keys, menus for any number of things from tone indicators, to emojis to bot commands. Its just been really helpful, even if it took a while to set up. Worth the effort.

Thank you for your positive feedback, Apryl! 🙂 Five stars motivates me to keep working on the app - and version 5.0 is on its way! It will easy the design process and explain the relations in a better way. Have fun with the Keyboard Designer! 😊

What's new

- Fixed that on some devices two characters were sometimes written for language-specific characters (not English!) (Thanks to Frank and Bernd!)
- The system language is now always used in the designer for language-dependent functions
