Detailed Information of ComboKey

With ComboKey Plus, you can type text fluently on big buttons with one hand, the hand holding the phone. Of course, you can use two hands as well.

This is a new approach to mobile text entry with only a small number of buttons. Just tap the letter, or in fewer cases, swipe a bit. Try and you will see. Or speak, and then edit if necessary before applying your text.

And what is interesting, you can modify the button contents or create your own button content (or whole layout) by pasting letters, special characters, symbols or emojis on the keys. So, if you don't like where a letter is, change it to some other button or combo. This applies to app v.6.9 up.

Convert your speech to text, or text to speech. Translate the text and listen. Try to pronounce the same way and check if that is understood. Useful features e.g. for learning languages.

Word prediction under user control: Save long, or any, words during typing. They will be proposed to you next time you start typing them. Activate this feature in Settings! - Tip: Saving 'New_Hampshire' will output 'New Hampshire'.

Can be used as a general purpose Android keyboard, terminal emulator keyboard (SSH etc.), coder/programmer keyboard (quick access to special symbols), as a one-hand or two-hand keyboard, multi language keyboard, even as a so called chorded keyboard (optional use).

Note that during installation, you will be asked to add ComboKey to your list of optional keyboards and grant permissions to use it as a trusted keyboard. According to ComboKey Privacy Policy, the typing information is only entered to the application using the keyboard, nowhere else. - Note also, that if you store candidate words (manually) while typing, they will be kept in your device's dictionary and, consequently, are available to other applications.

While typing you can switch back to the standard keyboard whenever you want. If you are comfortable with new ways of doing things, you might like this app. A bit to get accustomed to, but possibly rewarding.

Several languages are supported. You can switch quickly between ten presettable languages, search the web, translate the text and then listen to it etc. -  In many cases, this keyboard can be used without your reading glasses if necessary.

ComboKey is partly inspired by tiptyper's old idea of the GKOS physical 6-key back-panel keyboard but the principle was thoroughly redesigned to allow for use on touch screens. Now, let's tiptype!
