User reviews of Chorded Keyboard - GKOS
This is brilliant! The learning curve is small and the accuracy is high. I've used and like Swype, Swiftkey X, FlexT9, Messagease, Flit and others. So far this is my favorite.

Nice attempt I like where this tool is going, but it is hard to slide my finger so far while trying to type one handed. Mirroring helps but there are still long slide motions that need to be done. Would help if I could sesize the keyboard.

Unusable I've used chorded keyboards in the past and was excited to try this one out, however, there's no tutorial, the GUI is a mess, and after 15 minutes I'm just uninstalling it.

I like it but... I spent quite awhile using this on my Nokia N9, but it was inconvenient transferring text to any program. There were instructions for making a physical keyboard, and I would have bought one if it was available. Somebody make it and I'll buy it now if the cost isn't too much.

Perfect for portrait Entertaining and efficient. So why is it free? I'd pay for it.
