Best but needs to be updated
Excellent alternative to Google keyboard I just started using this on my Nexus 7 and much prefer it to the built-in keyboard. I can scale the height so it doesn't cover the whole screen in landscape. It also has a full 5-row keyboard when I want to be able to the standard CTRL-C or CTRL-X keystrokes in word processing. The on-screen keyboard will never be a substitute for a physical keyboard, but this comes pretty darn close. Many thanks!
Every key I need, readily available. The original reason I installed this is because of the directional keys. I hated having to try to move the tiny cursor on my phone between two letters. This made the job much easier. But it's better than that. I have friends in other countries, and it's useful having a keyboard that has keys for common alterations. Like having a key that immediately places an umlaut over the a for a German keyboard. It also has easy access to keys I use often, such as the brackets. And it's free, so there's that, too.
Great, complete and flexible keyboard I love it: it is simple yet complete, without "in the way" features. I have only one complain: dictionaries are tied to keyboard layout. I would like to change the dictionary without changing the keyboard layout. I am used to the Azerty French keyboard, so I always want to type using this layout, but when I type English (technical) texts, I would appreciate to have English words in the completion area. If I switch to English, I get a Qwerty keyboard, not what I want. If you add this feature, you get a 5 star note! :-D
Great layout Loved the layout but for some reason it automatically highlight all text when Im typing a message. Soon as I hit next key it deletes everything I had written. Wow, did that ever make me so mad! There is no way to turn off this "auto select text" feature and Im tired of having to retype everything so I am going back to kii keyboard. would have rated it 4-5 stars if not for this problem. That is why I gave it a 2 star rating instead of a 1.
Great... But needs updating It's surprising how long this app has beyond up. It has a lot of cool features. But now even Google has a PC layout (it's in the settings). Sure I'd doesn't have Ctrl, Alt, the arrow keys, of the function keys, but it does have a lot to offer, including gesture (or "swipe") typing, something this app sorely lacks. So, this app is great, and offers many features found nowhere else, but needs to be updated to today's standards.
