Little Big Keyboard

Little Big Keyboard


The Little Big Keyboard is a virtual keyboard (an Android input method, IME) a user can install to replace the built in virtual keyboard.

Features:

- Made for small screens (or big finger): big buttons.

- Small screen space occupied. Height is only 3 key-rows.

- A fairly novel input technique: press key as normal for center letter or press and move away from key to select side letters.

- Letter placement optimized for a mix of English and Swedish language input but layout includes most Western Europe letters.

- Non-predictive. You always know what will happen when you press something.

- All letters repeat like a normal physical keyboard.

Drawbacks
~~~~~~~~~

- You need to practice to learn the placement of letters. Start with single letters and then increase to sequences of letters (words).

- The keyboard is quite experimental and might contain bugs. Use as is! Feel free to report problems (follow website link).

INSTALLING
~~~~~~~~~~

1. Download and install the package from Android market or compile and install yourself (source code is open source).

2. Enable the new input method in "Settings", "Locale & text" (Swedish: "Inställningar", "Nationella inställningar & text").

3. Select the new input method by long pressing on any active input form (pops up a menu where you can select different input methods).

Good concept Its okay. Hard to get used to placement of keys but does the job. For little phones. Better than a keyboard for those tint phones.

Bold! But letters could be alphabetically to be easier to get started. Also it could have a single key for space/return/backspace. i used this when i needed to type commands in terminal (otherwise i use something with swipe type) but now I'm using compass keyboard (similar to this one but access to more characters). you can get compass on f-droid store.
