    Multi-touch keyboard support for Froyo

    We can thank the Droid 2 and members over at xda developers for providing us with a fully Froyo supported multi-touch keyboard. I've tested it out and it works great.

    Check it out at [PORT] Droid 2 Multi-Touch Keyboard [Froyo] UPDATE! fixed4! - xda-developers.

    Ok...here is the noob question...what is a multi-touch keyboard? Does it allow us to pinch and zoom on the screen to make typing easier? I'm not entirely up to speed on that...

    The best way I can explain the Multi-Touch Keyboard is if you press and hold the shift or caps key you can then touch another key and the Capital or Shift function will take place, where as on the Droid 1 you press Shift/Caps and let go and that is good for one Shifted Character, with the multi touch if you press shift and do not press another key while you have shift key pressed the Shift/Caps lock will be activated, kind of how it works on a computer, this makes typing faster because the keyboard will recognize the next key you press almost before you let up from the first one, if you can type that fast, also it brings the same functions to the physical keyboard (along with an on screen spell corrector) it is a very nice addition to my Original Droid but I use Swype almost exclusively

    Confirmed working on Droid 1! installed via SPRecovery with no problems. UI is ugly, but keyboard works fine. hopefully someone will be able to skin this thing!

    I installed it, and then uninstalled it after a day. It still messes with the settings of the hardware keyboard, just like the kanged Droid X keyboard did. I have my hardware keyboard set a certain way and I don't want the virtual keyboard to touch those settings in anyway.

    have u tried the "fixed" version? just tried the hardware keyboard and everything seemed fine. only used it for a few mins though. i dont use the hardware keyboard, but u might want to try it again.
