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 https://comparepackages.keyboarddesigner.com/

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!

Takes a bit to get used to the ins and outs, but once you do, it’s fairly straightforward. A couple suggestions: I would like to see an option for custom key press sounds added, if possible. It would also be nice if there were options to integrate text and grammar services such as; grammarly. Although I do not know if that is possible or what difficulties it would impose. Lastly: a double press option for key functions, so I can double press my space bar quickly to place a period.

Thank you so much for your review and all your suggestions! 👍 There are already tickets on my to-do list for custom sound options more actions (like double click, diagonal moves, on touch,...). I doubt if external services can be added - but I will check it...

Keyboard designer ROCKS! Layout and individual key attributes are all highly configurable, and the design studio UI is super easy to learn and use. I have large fingers (otherwise known as fat fingers ;-) ), and typing at a reasonable speed on my phone used to be impossible. Using Keyboard Designer, I was able to quickly design a keyboard with key size and spacing that enabled me to fly like when I'm on a fullsize keyboard.

Amazing. I've wanted a replacement for touchpal for years now, and now there's something available that allows me to do that! :D Could use a few options, maybe a little organization to ease the learning curve. Double press as an interaction option would be a nice option.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback, Lily! 👍 I am still working the app, so there is more to come! 😊 Have fun with the Keyboard Designer!

What's new

Revisions:
- 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
