    awesome keyboard but do not buy here as you wont receive updates

  • Dusan Sponar, Oct 2, 2012

    Nice keyboard. I like many layouts and I bought it. But after then I realized it doesnt support my language (Czech). What a shame - wasted money and time.

    I am using other keyboards as well but first time I met keyboard so purely equipped with more languages support. Keyboard which supports only few languages cannot compete with others...

  • khaled hammoud, Sep 5, 2012

    Is that support Arabic languge????

  • karim amin, Aug 25, 2012

    very good one but havent arabic support

  • jacco huysmans, Aug 15, 2012

    great app. should not have bought it through this pit, because it doesn't show me any updates. running a version from 8 months ago and pit says it is current..

  • Ashwin, May 16, 2012

    Any ETA on when the 4.3.7.1 update will hit the AndroitPIT appcenter? :)

    fantastic keyboard on my Galaxy Tab, love it!

  • Olari V., Jan 30, 2011

    Very comfortable and quick typing.
    Just open the app and read instructions on screen. Must have app!

  • Peter Thornqvist, Jan 25, 2011

    Greatest keyboard ever on my Archos 70, will never use another one. Only oddity is that the + key is hidden under the shifted numeric layout: should really be on the - key in the abc layout (shifted or long click).

    For some reason, it's not available for my HTC Wildfire?

    Other than that, this is the best. Well done!

  • curtiss wiggins, Jan 16, 2011

    I like this a lot better than the standard android keyboard. Works well on my cruz reader. It definitely makes it feel more like a tablet.

    @Ed French Thanks for your feedback! Will fix the USB keyboard connection problem asap.

  • Ed French, Jan 10, 2011

    This seems to be the best keyboard for large tablets (I use the Archos 101)- with the split keyboard being ideal for when you're holding the device in two hands in landscape mode. It looses a star because it crashes constantly if you try connecting a USB keyboard- not a huge problem I just have to remember to switch back to the stock android keyboard beforehand.
