Please note this application is only for android 2.1. For android 2.2 or above, please search the name "Cellular Big Button Keyboard" which is based on ice cream sandwich keyboard and install it instead. The latter one is better.
In this version voice-to-text is not supported for the consideration of compatibility. Due to the technical difficulties this application will be upgrade no more.
The following is the formal description.
Still annoyed by the tiny key on your softkeyboard? The original latin-keyboard layout is not designed for a human's thumb touching on the screen of a cell phone. The android input method is good but the mis-touch and the following correction always lead to slow input speed.
The cellular softkeyboard layout is an innovation of using Hexagon key shape but inheriting the traditional keyboard layout. As the result the key size is expended greatly and on a normal 3.7 inch screen it will be not hard to touch on the correct key and the input speed will be improved greatly.
The cellular inputmethods is based on the latin-keyboard of android 2.3. You also can have the chance to experience the significant work of Gingerbread keyboard on lower versions of android.
For the requests for adding more words into default Dictionary, please search "UDM" in the google market, it is a better solution.
