Hacker's Keyboard for Android

By Klaus Weidner Free

Developer's Description

Are you missing the key layout you're used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys.This keyboard is especially useful if you use ConnectBot for SSH access. It provides working Tab/Ctrl/Esc keys, and the arrow keys are essential for devices such as the Xoom tablet or Nexus S that don't have a trackball or D-Pad.HAVE FEEDBACK, QUESTIONS, OR BUG REPORTS? Please send me email or check the project's web page using the Developer links below. I can't help you if you leave questions or comments in a Market review since I dont have any way to contact review authors.The supported keyboard layouts include:- Arabic ()- Bulgarian ( )- Czech (etina)- Danish (dansk)- English Dvorak (language "en_DV")- English (QWERTY)- English/British (en_GB)- Finnish (Suomi)- French (Franais, AZERTY)- German (Deutsch, QWERTZ)- Greek ()- Hebrew ()- Lao ()- Norwegian (Norsk bokml)- Portugese (Portugus)- Romanian (Romn)- Russian ()- Spanish (Espaol)- Swedish (Svenska)- Slovenian (Slovenina)/Bosnian/Croatian/Latin Serbian- Thai ()- Ukrainian ( )Completion dictionaries are provided by plug-in packages, see the "other applications by this developer" section for the currently available list. The keyboard also supports use of dictionaries (but not keyboard layouts) provided by AnySoftKeyboard language packs.For more information, including the user's guide, FAQ/known issues, alternate version downloads, and the source code, please check out the developer web page: http://code.google.com/p/hackerskeyboard/Known issues include:- Localization for the keyboard layout is incomplete, currently the Spanish, Finnish, Lao, Romanian, and Thai are only localized in 4-row mode and show the English QWERTY layout in 5-row mode.- Some languages and layouts may not be usable on your phone if it lacks the necessary fonts.- Right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew) are apparently not fully supported on pre-Honeycomb devices, YMMV.- Many applications don't react to additional keys since they aren't programmed to handle them.The permissions requested by the application are those needed by the underlying Gingerbread keyboard. It uses the contacts information for completion of names and email addresses, and audio recording for the voice input feature.Recent changes:v1.27:- add Portugus [pt_PT] layout contributed by joao- add Slovenina [sk] layout contributed Martin Ratajsk- added dead keys to Spanish 5-row layout and etina [cs], modified dead key support for Arabic- language-dependent capitalization: ignore AutoCaps setting for languages without uppercase characters [ar, iw, th]- Bugfixes: F10 key being sent as F8; fixed confused setting for the Notification preferenceContent rating: Everyone
