I have Sony Xperia P with official android 4.0.4 on board. The Polish language uses some letters, that normally (on PC) are typed by Alt Gr+letter (eg. Alt Gr+a=ą). But using Alt Gr on external keyboard does not work as intended on android. How to make it working correctly?

  • There is no <kbd>Alt Gr</kbd> on a android keyboard... long press on the letter to get the popup of alternative variations of that letter, with umlauts, dashes etc...

I've found the solution some time ago. The app External Keyboard Helper Pro makes it work correctly.


Well that's really not the solution. Solution is to fix this issue, please! Why is it so hard to get the alt-gr to work? Still the same issue in android 4.1.2.
