"Gingerbread Keyboard's twin"

Reviewed by / Jul 06, 2011

Keyboard from Android 2.3 simulates the official Gingerbread Keyboard (Android 2.3)

This is the free version of Keyboard from Android 2.3. There's a paid version ($1.99) that contains extra features.

Probably you already have Android 2.2 or lower version and you would like to try Gingerbread Keyboard without upgrading (because you don't want o you can't) your Android version, don't you? Here you are.

The whole appearance of the Android keyboard has been changed (layout and style), and we have to say, improved. New features of Gingerbread keyboard are basically:

- Multitouch keyboard (make sure your device supports it)
- Built-in dictionary (it helps, but some people thinks it's a bit intrusive)
- Auto-correction
- Speech to text
- Split main keyboard app and dictionaries

The difference and improvements in comparison with the previous keyboards are evident. However, there are other non-official keyboards that overtakes by far this one. Anyway, if you fell in love with this keyboard, because you've tried it in your friend's newer device, go and get it. It's really worth.

Keyboard from Android 2.3 has been developed by Steven Lin, an individual developer who has made this great replica of the official Gingerbread Keyboard. What's more, he has also launched a paid version and some languages packages that includes specific dictionaries.

#For those who worried about collecting data warning.

The warning message is a part of the Android operating system that appears when any third party keyboard is enabled. so don’t worry about it!

# For Czech / Danish / Dutch / French / German / Italian / Norwegian Bokmål / Polish / Russian / Spanish / Swedish users, you need to download the optional dictionaries.

# How to install optional dictionaries: Go to "Gingerbread Keyboard Settings" / "Input languages", select (re-select) the language you want.

    Ever since I started using android gadgets or mobiles, this is has been the best keyboard for me and has special symbols, simple layout, faster texting without typos and arrow placement thru text unlike the Samsung keyboard. Amazing functionality. Love it on my Galaxy Note 2. It would be a plus if this keyboard was optimized for tablets, tried it but it gets so small on tablets that I can barely
