“It has nice large keys that really do make it a breeze to use.” –AndroidGuys

“The big question is whether Keypurr is faster than Swype and Swiftkey. We believe so.“ -Planet Android

interesting idea with good text prediction, but I found that it was difficult to "flick" to get the symbol/number keyboard and the voice option.

Severly underrated I am compelled to review within 30 seconds of installing. My screen is tiny and i think i developed tendon inflamation from chatting( lot!) with my girls. This felt like neurofen for my fingers. Shame the developer lost interest two years ago.

Oh, if only it had a Swedish dictionary! Would've given higher rating otherwise. Closest thing to my old HTC keyboard.
