When connecting your Android device to an external USB or Bluetooth keyboard a US-English layout may be used as default. Use this app to get support for additional keyboard layouts or to switch between different keyboard layouts. The way of using the app depends on your system.

For Android up to 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) the app adds to your device a new input method "External Keyboard" that needs to be enabled in the settings first. Afterwards you can switch between internal and external keyboard as needed. Please follow the on-screen instructions shown by the app.

For Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and newer physical keyboards are already supported by the system and can be configured in the system settings. A corresponding notification will be shown if you connect a keyboard. In this case please do not use the input method "External Keyboard". The app provides additional keyboard layouts to the system.

Please take a look at the screenshots for hints on how to use the app on different versions of Android.
The app is compatible with many Android devices and keyboards made by MEDION®. Owners of a MEDION® LIFETAB® do not need to install the app, because it comes preinstalled. Should the app not work as expected with your MEDION® device or your MEDION® keyboard, please let us know. You can either contact us or write a review including the product information and a short problem desciption.

Please note: The input method "External Keyboard" requires a MEDION® device or a MEDION® keyboard in order to work properly. If your combination of device and keyboard is supported this is being indicated by a green checkmark in the settings.

    Used this to change the keyboard layout of the external keyboard that I connected to my Hudl via Bluetooth. Excellent! And only took a few seconds.

    According to Acer, to use ANY USB device on this tablet requires a host USB, and this tablet does NOT have that ability and thus USB keyboards will NOT work. I suggest trying a Bluetooth one instead.
