Candidate prediction doesn't work properly If you type nihao, then choose a character for ni first, hao disappears. So if you type a longer sentence, you are unable to choose all characters at once, you would have to type them one by one. That's the reason I didn't purchase pro version. But if this bug is fixed, I'd be more than happy to get it as this keyboard brings the best iPhone feeling I was looking for.
Yabbadabbadoo 很好！good shortcuts. nhm = nihaoma. If you want to type manually, continue typing before selecting, eg type nihao, not ni, before u select Chinese characters. If English words appears, that's because u turned on 'Contacts Dictionary' in Settings. Unfortunately this useful feature can't be used Fix this and it will be 5 stars.
Good but still needs work Good points: Very convenient. Possibility to move cursor with volume buttons. Bad points: No swipe, no contact import, no frequency learning, no ha ndwriting and you need to retype the Pinyin that hasn't been converted in h anzi straightaway. If you type "woxihuan", it will type 我 and erase "xihuan"
Needs an update badly This plugin is very lacking. First, it lacks support for traditional Chinese characters which is a very basic feature. It also lags in showing a word a lot as I type pinyin, lacks word predictions, and lastly, please change the comma to the correct one ",". Because of these, I've decided not to purchase smart keyboard. There are other keyboards out there that are free & provide better support.
Great customisation, but not maximising its potential Most customisation offered I've seen so far, but some issues with Chinese input, and they don't have UK English and Bahasa Melayu dictionaries. Love the gestures - gimme more! Could do with custom key mappings, too.
Limited database Can't even find simple words! Very annoying. It makes me look like I don't know how to properly use Chinese characters!
Linpus Keyboard is the most practical IME, support English, PinYin & handwriting
