No, you cannot add custom keys on the default Android Keyboard. But what might work is keyboard shortcuts. You can create shortcuts like when you type "yt" option to change to "You there" will appear. So may be you can create keyboard shortcut that when you type "ms1" it will change to ₭. To create keyboard shortcut: Go to Settings -> Language & ...
According to the USB Host Diagnostics site, YES. Check the link for the ROMs (Build IDs) that supports OTG. If your phone has root, you can also check out USB OTG Helper [root].
Use a keyboard which doesn't ask permissions for full network access. In this case you don't have to be worried about someone stealing your passwords. You can see the full list of permissions in app list.
If you truly want to speed up the typing speed, there are certain factors you have to take in account: Screen size Touchscreen type (number of simultaneously recognized distinctive touch points, latency, etc.) OS (how fast can it recognize the touches, etc.) Underlying base hardware (how fast can it run the OS itself, and how fast can it process the raw ...
Of course a keyboard app can capture your passwords as you type them, along with everything else you type: naughty text messages, credit card numbers, web searches, everything. You couldn't have a mechanism to stop it, because in a sense, that's what it's for. It can only send this or any other information across the internet if it has the appropriate ...
Theoretically yes: it's the nature of a keyboard to know all your key-presses. So if the app has the Internet permission, it could also send this to "some place". For closed-source apps, it's difficult to check whether they do so or not (the only way doing that would be monitoring their network activity over a long time, best done on the router). With ...
Best bet would be to check System settings > My device > Language and input > Samsung keyboard (gear icon) > Predictive text (make sure this is on / green). You might want to check on the Learn from (word) items there.
If you are testing snake from the Android applications examples, you should modify the code in order to include the gesture class. I simply have done this by hooking the event_key manager by the gesture events. Good training to get familiar with the gingerbread API :-)
I was able to disable on-screen keyboards in Android "settings" on my Samsung Tab3. Now I can use my Logitech K810 finally with no annoying on-screen keyboards constantly popping up and obscuring 50% of my viewable area on my already smallish tablet screen. I'm running Android 4.2.2. In settings choose "Language and Input" and click on "default" keyboard ...
If you go into the settings of the stock mms app, there is a setting to have the enter key instead of the smiley key
Select Input Method apparently lets you open the IME dialog via a single long press on the Search button. You can use the SIM Test to try this out before paying for the app. However, since most modern phones don't have a Search button, this app has limited usefulness. Comments suggest that Pie Control can provide a soft Search key which can then be used ...
A keyboard can do this - that's how a keyboard works, after all. Not only that, but for some scripts, what you describe is the most common way to enter text. For example, in Japanese, one enters む by typing "mu" (the Latin characters representing the same sound). You can't do it with a normal app without rooting. Anything else would be a big security flaw.
Currently, there's no stable solution available, but you can try KeySwap to associate specific keyboard to an app. As Android doesn't allow an app to change Input Method programatically, your device needs to be rooted for this to work.
CyanogenMod and other custom ROMs still offer it as part of their ROM packages, and some people have posted the keyboard apk online. This version will not update like Google's keyboard and can be installed on pretty much any ROM. You'll need to enable it Settings > Language & input. AOSP Keyboard (4.2.1) AOSP Keyboard w/ number row (4.2.2) Either of ...
You could try Hacker's Keyboard.
I am using Android 4.3 on a Nexus 7. I was able to configure android to use both keyboards (screen and bluetooth) simultaneously. With the bluetooth keyboard setup and enabled.. Go into your Settings then select "Language and input". Click on "Default" located just under the "Keyboard and input methods" heading to open the "Choose input method" dialog. ...
