Keyboard Swap for Tasker

Keyboard Swap for Tasker


** Requires Tasker (or Locale), Root AND Read/Write permissions on the /system partition **

Have a keyboard that you like for one app but not another? This app is actually a plugin for Tasker or Locale that, when triggered, will set your software keyboard to the selected input method.

Essentially, if you have a keyboard you like for sending texts, another for browsing the net and a third for something more complex like ConnectBot, one can setup profiles that detect those apps and change the keyboard to your favorite.

Alternatively, one could switch between two keyboards depending on the screen orientation, the time of day, or anything else that Tasker can detect.

I certainly do not regret purchasing this app. It works exactly as it says. No longer do I have to change my keyboard manually when texting or coding!

Root access only, unfortunately. Great idea and I need fir unrooted. It was my fault , buying this app, and I realized it immediately, but my device never showed the REFUND button. I understand, $0.99 is not much to spend, and when an app is useless to a person , it would be great to receive a refund. I will contact the Dev for refund.

Doesn't work Phone is rooted, S-OFF and system/app partition is r/w. I went a long way trying to get this to work but now it seems the app is deprecated. Dev should at least remove it from the play store if he doesn't feel like updating it. Just found out that the app called "secure settings" actually does what this one only promises. Thought I'd let people know.

Doesn't work with newer Android versions Because it doesn't recognise root on newer devices. Very disappointing that it is listed as being compatible with newer devices.
