Please read the instructions below on how to install, enable, and use. Keyboards aren't as "plug and play" as normal apps and require a bit of setup before you can use them, so if you're having trouble, please email me (bbrennan.labs@gmail.com) for support before rating.

A new concept for touch screen keyboards. Easy to learn and use, particularly for anyone who has trouble typing accurately with the tiny touch-screen QWERTY keyboards. It also has a much more natural feel than touch-screen QWERTY keyboards.

I found that after using this keyboard for a week or so I could type with about the same speed as on touch-screen QWERTY, and with far more accuracy.

Instructions:
Typing comes fairly naturally. You'll find a 3x3 grid of keys, with characters in the center of the keys and on their edges.
To type a character in the center of a key, tap that key
To type a character in between two keys, slide from one key to the next, in either direction.
To type a character on the edge of the grid, slide from the key it's touching to the key on the opposite side of the grid.

INSTALLING AND ENABLING:
To enable the keyboard, go to Settings->Language and Keyboard and make sure "Fat Fingers Keyboard" is enabled. You can then choose it as your input method by long-pressing any text area or by going to Settings->Language and Keyboard->Select input method.

    Adam Tablet: Excellent concept, puts into practice something I was thinking about. Will take a short time to learn and master but is very accurate and speed is quickly rising. Thank you.

    Doesn't support all apps like browsers, Google translate. Too bad because I like this app a lot

    The two finger operation is just strange and the layout lacks long press characters. Just doesn't cut it compared to Touch Pal.

    You can barely see the letters and the keyboard layout makes no sense al at. This makes texting-typing even more difficult. There is no concept with this keyboard.

    Title says it all. It does no good for me to try a keyboard that i have to completely relearn
