Hacker's Keyboard

Hacker's Keyboard


Are you missing the key layout you're used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys.

This keyboard is especially useful if you use ConnectBot for SSH access. It provides working Tab/Ctrl/Esc keys, and the arrow keys are essential for devices that don't have a trackball or D-Pad.

Completion dictionaries are provided by plug-in packages, see the "other applications by this developer" section for the currently available list. The keyboard also supports use of dictionaries (but not keyboard layouts) provided by AnySoftKeyboard language packs.

Works nicely Better than other programmer keyboards. This would make it much better... I often press . when trying to press space. The space should be longer and the done/enter/next button should be smaller. or put the . button on the left of the space. There is a bug, when unlocking CM11 with password, backspace erases 2 characters at a time instead of 1.

Like the Real Thing Hacker's Keyboard in five row mode is much like a real keyboard. Some older apps have problems with Google's keyboard. They work fine with Hacker's keyboard. It seems the dictionary is no longer needed for English. It works great with Terminal Emulator..This keyboard works best on larger devices. While settings are extensive they allow for a lot of versatility. Because there are so many keys, this app is best had on 7 inch and larger devices.

Super Simple, real keyboard layout. I tried 3 other ones by the time I found this one. Actualy switches nicely between languages. ( Eng, Esp, Hu.) Recommend it highly. Ajánlom mindenkinek. Pontos billentyűzet kiosztás magyarul is.
