最佳廣東拼音輸入法,比Google出的更加好! 絕對好過Google 出嘅 Cantonese Input, 因為呢個Keyboard 有埋數字, 唔洗好似Google 咁成日要去另一版 keyboard. 又可當英譯中字典用, 最啱香港人!

Simply efficient Simple and efficient. Nothing was complex. Very easy to use. As a English speaking Chinese it is hard to use keyboard via mandarin pinyin but this uses English alphabet pronunciation to sound out the cantonese. Fabulous !
