Are you missing the key layout you're used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys.

This keyboard is especially useful if you use ConnectBot for SSH access. It provides working Tab/Ctrl/Esc keys, and the arrow keys are essential for devices that don't have a trackball or D-Pad.

Completion dictionaries are provided by plug-in packages, see the "other applications by this developer" section for the currently available list. The keyboard also supports use of dictionaries (but not keyboard layouts) provided by AnySoftKeyboard language packs.

Known issues include:

- Localization for the keyboard layout is incomplete, currently the Spanish, Finnish, Lao, Romanian, and Thai are only localized in 4-row mode and show the English QWERTY layout in 5-row mode.

- Some languages and layouts may not be usable on your phone if it lacks the necessary fonts.

- Right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew) are apparently not fully supported on pre-Honeycomb devices. Your mileage may vary.

- Many applications don't react to additional keys since they aren't programmed to handle them.

The supported keyboard layouts include:

- Armenian (Հայերեն)

Reviews From google play store

I love it! My only question is:WHY IS THE ENGLISH DICTIONNARY M FOR MATURE?!?!? Other than that, I also have a feature request: Add glide typing. Glide typing is where you can slide your finger across letters and doing it across the right letters will then make the app (hackerskeyboard) guess what you are typing. Then, when you release your finger the word that was guessed of what you tried to type will then be putinto thep text field. I also want to type by writing it. Thanks for making this

Great app with useful arrow and ctrl keys immediately accessible. Same layout as pc too, so when the fat key hw limitation of capacitive multitouch is overcome then the right kb is in use. One issue, the £ sign is missing on the 5 row layout and not shown in small on the full layout. Would also be helpful if the word suggestion bar said to download dictionary if unavailable.

This app is as indispensable as oxygen to me. I can't recommend it highly enough. Do you use modifier keys? You've found the right place. This is, quite literally, the second app I install on every new system. Nova Prime, Hacker's Keyboard, & Xplore. ALWAYS. No hyperbole here. New device, new ROM, whatever. I tried 2 Bluetooth keyboards, they couldn't compete at all. I've been using this since the first Galaxy Tab out! I used it the first time I gained root so I could install my first ROM.

Speedy I couldn't go back to my old system keyboard after this app. It loads so quickly, no lag. I've been using for over a yr w/ success! Would suggest having a layout that means no F1-F12 Keys as those aren't always needed. And trace-typing/Swifty/Swiping would be good. Strange thing I've noticed is that when I'm on some apps regardless of device orientation, suggestions don't show. Nor the symbols I've customised. For instance, not on play store now nor on homescreen. Don't know why...

I really like this app and its concept. It can be soo useful in some situations since I am used to pc. However I, like a lot of other users/reviewers am in doubt that this app may be logging my every keystroke, despite I used it to write this review. Until I get a reply confirming that this is not the case my rating won't go up. Again don't get me wrong I love the app.

The BEST keyboard, I've ever used! I've installed it on all of my smartphones since 2012 and had problems only with Lenovo A2010. I'm pretty sure, that there is no similar keyboards with similar quality. If you need more colors-emoticons-otherJunk - please pass by. If you need fully functional pc-like keyboard - HK is your choice!

Can't think of single way to make it better. Great job! [Edit] The default Google keyboard now how a pretty useful feature where you can move the cursor left or right by swiping the space bar. Any chance you could reproduce that at least in portrait mode? I'll take it any day over changing the language!

Good no frills keyboard that isn't invading your privacy under the hood. With that said, the space bar is flat out not wide enough and I find myself constantly hitting comma or period by accident. The persistent smiley button where "Return" should be is also annoying, and I find myself inserting smileys by accident while trying to hit enter. The former should be changed and the latter should be configurable.

This is an awesome keyboard. It alows me to type this ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) but you want to type ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) you have to set it up in the settings. (I just figured it out) For some reason auto complete won't work plz fix. It's still a pretty good kebaord. Keep up the good work. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) :)

U shouldn't complain that it doesn't work because it has no hacks. If ur a kid who wants to hack then, cya in prison because hacking is very illegal. This just gives u a keyboard to help u play keyboard games (mostly the reason I rated it 5 stars)

The beta transparent keyboard setting, when are you going to have a non-beta version? I'm currently running 6.0.1 on a SGS5. GREAT WORK SO FAR. Also are you going to put swipe into it? UPDATE : I noticed a problem with the alt key. It turns off after one key press. example : cent sign is alt 155. The keyboard does alt 1 and then turns off the alt key.

Clean look, Lightweight with option to install language dictionnary for word prediction. My complaint is how small the "Delete" and "Spacebar" keys are. Is it possible to dedicate a whole line for space and a decent amount of room for delete?

Cutted off at the right side while in landscape mode on the Zenfone Max Pro M2. That makes the key difficult to use. I hope Hacker's Keyboard can also adjust the width of the keyboard in settings just like the keyboard height, so users can solve this thing by themself. BTW, thank you for creating this great app :-)

This keyboard beats all of the other Android built-in keyboards I've tried to date. It's intuitive, auto-completes with suggestion of several words and it can switch from one language to another. Fantastic keyboard. I prefer it to Google's multi-language virtual keyboard.

Meh. Used to be my favorite keyboard. GBoard has spoiled me. HK doesn't have punctuation on the main screen in portrait mode, so I find it completely unusable.

the spell checker started messing up 3 days ago. Example i type 'gppd' but it's not guving me good as an option anymore. very many examples abound. i had to re-install. it worked fine for some time but reverted. tx

Nice! It's exactly what I needed (a soft keyboard that can be launched onscreen WITHOUT tapping a text field). Shame it took me 2 hours to find this solution.

Using on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A with Android 8.1: overall a great app but there are just a few bugs. For one, the suggestion bar (using the English autocompletion dictionary) doesn't function when I tap or backspace into an already typed word. The autocorrect seems to not work (and I hate autocorrect and always disable it, but someone else might not). And I can't find an option to disable the automatic insertion of a period after tapping spacebar twice. Thanks for making it available and free!

there doesnt seem to be an easy way to switch to a number typing mode. the numbers are pretty small on the full keyboard. also the swiping action isn't always easy to use.

That's the best keyboard out there for Android, for people who actually write something using letters, and not smileys, and use productivity tools. I stand by my word, since Android Eclair.
