Brilliant product, for a brilliant keyboard NOTE TO FRUSTRATED USERS: This package is NOT the keyboard. It does nothing by itself and this is clearly indicated. I find hacker's keyboard a lifeline in connectbot - ssh sessions were a lot harder without it. This dictionary makes it more useful outside of the shell, in text message and such, by enabling the keyboard to offer spelling corrections as I type. A class act for free!
Excellent overall, but there are some small glitches The dictionary is quite broad in its coverage, which means that most of the words one is likely to encounter are included. However, there are some glitches with the suggestions. It appears to me that mistakes made at the start of tthe word are not handled very well, especially where errors such as using a wrong initial letter or double-typing a letter are involved. Often, the correction simply ignores the double-letter initial, giving something like 'iinvitation' as a result.
doesnt work for me followed the instructions, have hackers keyboard working fine, then installed english dictionary, then bring up keyboard and no word popups. am i missing something?
Great app! I too tried others before this one. To be honest I thought I wanted something cutesy that made my phone different from others but I was wrong. Learned I just wanted a SIMPLE, EASY TO USE, and not every button known to mankind stuck on the main board where finding Waldo was easier than attempting to find a question mark. I also don't want to talk to my phone. I'm young but old school in how i think in regard to phones. Having an inanimate object talk back just creeps me out. Too much TV I guess lol.
Super Happy Typing!! Was totally amazed by comment (elsewhere) saying "you don't need cursor keys... just point." Obviously an "Expert" on computers since he got hisself a Smart Phone... Phone's smarter than him... :) Only thing needed is Handwriting Mode. (Sometimes)
I use this with 'Hacker's Keyboard' and it works well, never any errors or crashes, etc.. It doesn't have every word that it could but it's easy enough to Google one and then add it to the dictionary for future use. Famously known names are also included, which is a nice time-saver.
In the future, the English dictionary will no longer be included in the Hacker's Keyboard package. Use this external dictionary to provide English completion suggestions.
