# Incorrect display of text
Complex script rendering in android is not perfect. So if characters are not displaying correctly, it is an issue with Android system, not with the app. (text rendering in 4.2 is much better than 4.1 Jellybean, 4.4 and above perfect rendering when comparing with other android versions.)
# About "collecting data" warning message:
That warning message is a part of the Android operating system, and it appears whenever a third party keyboard is enabled.
This app uses exact same permissions as the default keyboard that came with your phone. You may not need to worry.
