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!

Complcated. Busy keyboard, e.g., one key shows number, exclamation, equal sign, and emoji, overwhelming, numerous choices with difficult, awkward language. Font is unattractive, keyboard flat, limited colors, slow response. I don't see microphone. It is cramped, too much to take in. I had a stroke this past November, so I need a simple to use, and figure out, keyboard. I like that height was easy to alter as I have vision problems. No ads is great. Thanks Gerrit, best health to you, too 😊

Thank you! This keyboard has a lot of interesting features, and I appreciate the lack of ads and needed permissions. Truthfully, it's more than I need from a keyboard, but I enjoyed playing with all the options. I really can't wait until you add swipe typing though. I miss it! One thing I've noticed is I keep missing the space bar somehow. I may just need to go back and tweak the sizing setting.

Thank you for your 5 star review, Kelli! πŸ˜‰ This app will never show any adds or request more permissions! It is one of the main goal of the app. I am still working on glyde typing... Have fun with the Keyboard Designer! βŒ¨πŸ™‚

This is the greatest keyboard app ever made! The customizations are almost limitless, and you can make exactly the keyboard that YOU want. Since there are up to 6 assignable characters per key (swiping up, down, left, right, regular press, and press-and-hold) you can make a single pane keyboard do everything! You can also scale the key size to accommodate your fingers and typing style. It's magnificent, and worth supporting the developer with a purchase or two.
