Qwerty6 Keyboard

Description

This is a simple app for people who want an easy-to-learn keyboard with big keys. Don't install it if you want autocomplete or other extra features.
.
Qwerty6 Keyboard (Q6KB) is the familiar qwerty keyboard with a twist. It puts all the letters in the familiar qwerty order, but it has just 17 big letter keys. Each key tells you how to type its letters:
.
> To type the large letter, touch the key.
> To type the upper character, swipe up-left.
> To type the lower character, swipe down-right.
.
It's a little easier to touch than to swipe, so the designer took the letter frequency of the English alphabet into account when deciding which letters you type by touching & which you swipe. With the help of 10 digits & a few punctuation marks to stretch things out, 14 of the 17 most-used letters became touch letters. So you touch 91% of the time & swipe only 9%.
.
SAFETY
There is no safer app than Q6KB. The warning you'll see when activating Q6KB is the same for all keyboard apps. Only autocomplete keyboards collect your personal information.

GET STARTED
Put your phone with Q6KB showing next to your PC keyboard. Compare the 3 lines of letters. Notice the location of the numbers & symbol characters. Rotate to landscape mode & note the 6 symbols keys on the right.
.
NARROW KEYS
The SHIFT & DELETE keys are very narrow & are meant to be touched in a different way. Don't aim for the center of the key. Aim for the outside edge & touch the rim of the device. These narrow "rim keys" are an experimental feature. Please email us about how they work on your device. (Mention your screen size.)
.
SPECIAL KEYS
> SHIFT KEY - Touch to toggle caps. Swipe up to turn on caps-lock. Swipe down to turn off caps-lock. Rotate phone to landscape to enter all numbers & symbols.
> SPACE KEY - Touch for a space. Swipe up for a question mark. Swipe down for enter/return or to start a search or indicate you're done. Long-touch for more symbols.
> DELETE KEY - The only key that repeats if you hold it down.
.
POP-UP CHARACTERS
When you long-touch most of the keys, a small pop-up keyboard will appear. Most letter keys have accented letters for Spanish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Dutch, & more. Other keys have miscellaneous symbols.
.
LANDSCAPE MODE
Rotate your phone to landscape for a password keyboard. You can now enter all letters, numbers & symbols on a desktop keyboard without having to switch to a number/symbol keyboard. NOTE: Don't rotate in the middle of a word or password. The unfinished word may be deleted.
.
EXIT THE KEYBOARD
Press your phone's BACK button.
.
MAIN MENU
To get to the Main Menu (Help, Settings, About), go to your phone's Apps drawer & touch the Q6KB icon.
