    Physical Keyboard Mod

    I love my physical keyboard, it was one of my prerequisites when I chose the Droid.

    I am looking for an app similar to KeyCaps600 on the Treo. It mods the physical keyboard so that a long press gives you uppercase and double clicking a letter gives you the ALT character. It speeds up typing immensely.

    I believe this could be a money maker for someone out there.

    Yes I would love that. I don't get why a long press is wasted on those weird characters that I have not used even once yet. I like your idea but rather it be reversed long press alt, and double press cap.

    hell yeah... +1 for this. I, too, MUST have a physical keyboard... every phone I have owned since the LG vx-9800 (thats right: the enV's ugly-ass, 4"-thick older brother) has had a QWERTY keyboard... I LOVE the droid, but it, honestly, has one of the worst keyboards I've ever used. I think an app that can reduce the amount of SHIFT and ALT keypresses would be amazing...


    To all the really smart, super badass devs out there:

    Please make this happen...

    I agree that would be cool, but I rarely ever use the physical keyboard. I feel that I can type faster with the soft keyboard. The only time I really use the physical keyboard is when Im using the terminal or running emulators.

    That app would be cool if it had some user selections... then you could customize what you want done on double tap or long press... like if I long press the period *.* it comes out K.com*

    I am ok with the physical dimensions and even the flatness, but the procedures in my mind are just plain stupid. Why would someone want an n s or g w/ those squigglies on top instead of a " ! or _?
