It used to work on HTC Desire, but after the last update it didn't load - rendering some apps useless. Very annoying! However, it has been fixed now.

Wasted space Why do I need this app? I don't speak Chinese, nor do I wish to learn it. Wish I could uninstall.

It was perfect I was quite happy with this app until the most recent update~ cos the keyboard is so small so I use a lot of predictive texts! The recent update just makes it very difficult~ update is supposed to improve something, not to make it worse!

Stop auto-correcting and auto-capitalise I've unticked both the auto-capitalisation and auto-correcting words but it still changes them. I'm really disappointed with the new changes as it is very annoying. I used to love this keyboard, pls fix this or I'll need to find some other keyboard.
