    i'm really surprised more folks haven't jumped on this. it's the coolest thing i've seen in a while. just thought i'd bump it so people could see it again.

    I tried it out and it is very cool. Took awhile to figure out how to get it to work, but the custom skin I got from the website worked.

    I actually downloaded it from the web browser on the DInc. But if you wanted to get it from your computer to the DInc, then just download the zip file onto your computer, and transfer to DInc via USB onto your SD Card. I then used Astro to extract the zip and install the files. Hope that helps.

    no but if you want to switch them up,simply make a folder on your sd and put as many apk's as you want in it. it would be a good idea to put subfolders in the folder so you can put a description of your keyboard on the folders.

    What about the warning "may be able to collect all the text you type... passwords and credit card numbers."
    Any reason to be concerned? :thinking:
