    One pivotal point of any smartphone’s success or failure is in the keyboard. How does it feel? How accurate is your typing? How quickly can you type? How good is the layout of the keys? How many rows does it have? And the questions go on and on. Since the purpose of a smartphone [...]

    who else has tried this so far?

    I have and I'm not impressed. I like the key layout, and it does seem to be a little more accurate, when it inprets key presses properly. for instance, once I pressed the 'o' key and got a 'd' character. sometimes it seems to just jump places within the text as well. I'll be typing and then all of a sudden it will jump back 6 characters and start inserting txt there.

    There is no haptic feedback, no long press on period to choose other punctuation, it doesn't auto-correct properly or auto-capitalize right, and there is lag between when the key is pressed, and it is displayed on screen ....

    Why is this a paid app? I think this is a good concept, and could eventually be a really decent app. However, this is far from ready for sale. I don't like having to pay to be a beta tester!

    I think if you uninstall the app within 24 hours you get your money back???

    i like the idea, when they get some more bugs worked out i'll give it a go

    Yes you are correct , Any app or game you purchase from the Android Market can be refunded within 24 hours {48 hours return policy from 11th}.

    So you can test it out and if you don't like it , you can get a full refund :)

    Installed it on my HTC Hero, and now I cannot get a signal from Sprint. I want to uninstall, but I cannot find it in my Android Market downloads. Sprint customer service wants me to do a hard reset, but I want to keep all my downloads. Please help. Thanks.

    I bought the program but couldn't get it to work on my Sprint Hero. I didn't lose the connection to Sprint though. I uninstalled it and got a refund. I will let others beta test it.

    I don't know that this app would definitely be causing that problem, however you should be able to go under settings, select applications, select manage apps, and click on it then uninstall it. You should be able to uninstall any app there without accessing the marketplace.

    However, I'm not sure how that would affect the 24 hour refund policy.


    BTW, I did return this app and get my refund.
