    I have an un-rooted Nexus One on which I have (and love) the now defunct shapewriter application.

    I also just got and rooted a g-tablet. Sadly it does not have my favorite keyboard. Hence the question:

    Is there a way to find the shapewriter files on my Nexus One and copy over to my g-tablet and install them?

    You could root the N1 and use an app to backup shapewriter into an apk file and install it on the g-tablet. You could also try to find a copy of shapewriter online because someone else might be hosting the apk file.

    Use Astro file manager. Open astro, press menu, press tools, press application manager/backup, select shapewriter. This will put the .apk on your SD card under "backups" you can then upload the .apk to your dropbox and install on the tab or connect the your cpu and copy the .apk then transfer it to the tab. No need to root.

    Then I guess this would be the time for you to root your device and use Titanium backup or something similar.

    I think, the apps have to be free apps ;)

    With free apps, ES File Explorer can do it too :)

    If you got the app from Google Play you should just be able to login into your account and download it.
