Slice Keyboard is an innovative keyboard for the most daring
If something has put Android where currently is that's its flexibility and leeway . Don't you like the stock keyboard? Well, come to Appszoom and download the one that fits you. However, if you like to taste new things, stuff you aren't used to, you should give a try to the one we're reviewing here: Slice Keyboard.
First off, bear in mind that this is a tablet keyboard, it won't run in your smartphone. If you own a tablet, we invite you to watch the video to know what we're talking about. An innovative touch keyboard with 6 buttons that open up circles that alltogether contain all letters and symbols. The circle-spreading is fast and smooth. Screentouch response is amazing and we can state that the keyboard is well-crafted and actually working. If it is as useful than other, or even more, that's something that depends on you. I personally like it but you have to get the hang of it and that takes a while.
An original keyboard, user-friendly interface and great performance. Only one catch: its steep learning curve. Do you dare mastering it?
The design is based on a row of home keys for anchoring your fingers. The home keys can used in a fixed position or be adjusted based on your hand placement. After pressing at least one home key slice keys are displayed arranged in a circle around the home keys. The slice keys open when its home key is unpressed. All of the keys are designed with the idea of not having to look at the keys. The keys positions are relative to the home keys and their touch targets are large and extend beyond the shapes on the screen.
Several new gestures have been added in version 2:
- Capitalizing characters can be done by flinging on the Slice keys.
- Flinging Right on the Home Keys adds a Space
- Flinging Left deletes a character
Additional features in version 2:
- New cleaner and simpler theme.
- Typing can now be used with only one hand.
- New one hand layout for better support of 7" tablets
- Adds support for large Android phones
The full version can be used throughout the Android operating system and with all Android apps that work with the system keyboard. The full version of Slice Keyboard also comes with a typing area, and a Space Invaders like game for typing practice.
Fixed issue that would cause unintentional gestures on some devices that would register touch events when a finger was hovering over the screen, most notably the Nexus 7.
