Null Keyboard

Null Keyboard


A keyboard that does nothing.
Yes, really.

This keyboard is useful if you have an external bluetooth keyboard paired with your phone and you want to stop the on-screen keyboard from popping up all the time.

To use, go in to keyboard settings and enable null keyboard, and then pick it as your input method. No keyboard should appear until you change it back.

NOTE: Samsung galaxy tabs running the latest android have an issue where the keyboard is frequently switched back to the on-screen keyboard. As far as I can tell, a fix for this needs to come from samsung, not from me. Even if it's something I can fix on my end, without a tab to test on, there's no way I'm going to be able to figure out what it is.

Perfect when I'm working with SSH! With limited screen space on my Nexus 5, this keyboard is a must when working with SSH and writing scripts on my Raspberry Pi. The dev is a great person for doing this!

Pair with keyboard manager (root) for good solution Using keyboard manager I set my keyboard to autmatically toggle to this null keyboard when a bluetooth keyboard is detected...solved the on screen problem! although using a privacy app i was also warned during install that the null keyboard is collecting identification info from users during installation... no reason for that, why on earth does this developer need to know who I am? I blocked identification access and it still works fine.

Novel Idea Even works on the latest GS5. Simply Disable and Force Stop the built in Samsung Keyboard. But Yes, the Samsung k/b does come back, but only after I've typed and written everything I wanted. Just a quick reset or disable and go again. Works Great! Thank You...
