# This paid version is not a repack of stock gingerbread keyboard.
There are added features that I worked night and day. so stop leaving comments on Appbrain like you can get it free from XDA or other sources..
There is also a free version that I made which worked like the stock gingerbread keyboard with some issues fixed for Droid 2, HTC devices, and Galaxy S devices.
# For Galaxy S / Tab Users, Vibration (HapticFeedback) = "Vibrate on keypress" enabled and "Custom vibration intensity" set to "Normal" (In keyboard settings and advanced setting).
# For keyboard size and padding adjustment, please go to
"Gingerbread Keyboard Settings > Advanced Settings > Custom keyboard layout" to set your favorite keyboard metrics.
To adjust landscape keyboard metrics, just rotate your phone in landscape and set your custom value.
Remember to click save to apply new setting before you leave setting screen (or rotate your phone) and enjoy the new keyboard layout!

Brilliant keyboard, but it's a memory hole on my phone. The longer it's on, the more memory it uses, until you need to restart your phone. Galaxy S

I'm really digging this keyboard great job! Would be nice to have an option to backup your settings in the near future.

... but I changed my mind trying it. This keyboard is really amazing on Galaxy S II. I've been using the free version for too long, and the ability of resizing the keyboard is priceless : keyboard is not taking more than half of the screen anymore with suggestions. If you wonder if the + of this app are worth it, they are ( even if some of the themes are a bit ugly ), and even if you don't, 1,39e is really cheap for that great work. Go for it.

Dear Developer, the keyboard is really awesome, but i need u to fix 1 annoying bug which is: (when pressing the (123?) button and type the numbers, then press the space bar, the keyboard will return back to letters mode instead of staying at numbers modes and then when pressing again the (123?) button, the space bar is pressed as well where u r touching only the (123?) button. Please solve it ASAP. Regards

An option to set the width of the keys would make it perfect! It's very good though!

this app can use 10-20mb of ram when it's not even being used? Also developer will not answer any emails to find out why. Using up to 20meg of ram
