    It would be nice if this otherwise excellent app would recognise when I am using an hardware keyboard and hide the onscreen keyboard automatically :) for 5 stars

    Was going to try SwiftKey, but man that keyboard is huge! Love being able to choose different layouts and adjust key size & spacing.

    Versatile, configurable, you can program keys (a lifesaver!) And the dev are quick to fix problems. This is the BEST! If your characters are too small, change the keyboard configuration!
