- OS-compatible BlueTooth keyboard/controller (e.g. keyboard/controller connected to OS 4.2 as HID device, such as iCade, iPega) *
- OS-compatible USB keyboard/controller (e.g. XBox 360, generic keyboard, some generic controller) *

Software Compatibility
======================
This app is originally provided as an add-on for our emulators, but now works with many other apps. Not all apps are compatible, so please test during the trial period. For Motorola Bionic user, there is a ROM issue where many features only work with apps which are explicitly designed to work with soft keyboard.

For best compatibility we recommend using BluezIME-compatible controllers when physical controller is needed. Some compatibility issues can be solved with the help of root features, please contact us if you have problem.

How to call up GameKeyboard
===========================
Depends on device, ROM and target app there are many different ways to call up soft keyboard, e.g.:
- some apps have built-in option to call up soft keyboard
- some devices support using long pressing [Menu] key to call up soft keyboard

GameKeyboard also provide two methods in case the above cannot be used:
- switch to GameKeyboard Launcher, tap on the "call out keyboard after exit" button, then switch back
- turn on "Settings->[Vol. Up] Key Action" then use [Vol. Up] as hotkey

    The software is very good but the whole agenda between Locnet and Fishstix is not that is why only 3 stars. I now that it say in description that it does not work with "some" programs (at the very bottom) but you know what I am a customer and I know that

    In the past it's worked great... Then not... Then awesome. Right now it just tries to start the service when I leave the app and then says "game keyboard: service failed" over and over and over.
