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.

The "globe" icon changes the google keyboard I always use google pinyin and found it very useful. But since a while ago, whenever I accidentally clicked the "globe" icon at the lower left hand corner, it changes to my default google keyboard setting. I have to go back to my phone keyboard setting and change the default again. Using redmi 1s by the way. Can someone fix it?
