    Haha would work as its across the keyboard, did you try f/j in portrait? Thats where I saw with those letters. In landscape letters like j/g have issues. Try any two keys within one or two keys of each other by holding one and tapping the other, only the second tapped letter will show (at least on my droid)

    well, I don't see issues with F/J even in portrait mode on my phone (HTC Hero with custom 2.1 ROM). I guess this kind of problems is linked to the touchscreen kernel driver, as my app only relies on the Android framework to detect multi-touch inputs, and if the framework reports wrong events, there is nothing I could do to fix that...

    That's probably what it is, I've used apps such as multitouch visualizer and a multitouch drawing app and it didn't do well with close multiple touches. Could this be why android doesn't have your style keyboard to begin with?

    Don't mean to take away from your work, its still a great keyboard

    Great job has to be the best keyboard out there. Only if auto correction worked. :)

    Done in 0.3.1 ;-)

    By the way can you tell me if the vibrator works on N1 ? Someone told me it doesn't, so I increased the duration from 20ms to 30ms, but I don't know if it works...

    Hey Cyril,

    Latest update is more great work. The language chooser implementation is a good compromise that still allows for an uncluttered keyboard if you're not switching languages frequently; and of course revert to alpha on space bar is gold.

    Still not 100% convinced with the bubble display timings. It also seems like there's a non-display bug that's easily reproducible when I tap a key quickly: the letter registers in the text field, but I never see a bubble display. I know you're doing an interrupt when the second key is pressed, but there should be a minimum time in milliseconds that each bubble is displayed which supersedes the interrupt. At the very least, the non-display on quick tap error should be corrected.

    **BTW, It looks like the text box resize occlusion problem is now fixed. :)

    Another little potential improvement that a few others have also noted is the size of the return key hit-box makes it easy to accidentally hit it when pressing delete. This becomes more relevant when using mesaging programs where an accidental send can take place.

    Potential fixes would be decreasing size of the hitbox and/or creating a 'messaging' layout with popup common emoticons in place of the [RETURN] key. I'm guessing the messaging programs are instantiating the alternate keyboard layout if/when it exists or is the keyboard querying the program?

    @Cyril
    Just saw a video of your Smart Keyboard and I couldn't find it on the Market. I have a Milestone running 2.0, on Brazil.

    What's the minimum API for your app? (Does it need 2.0.1 or you have imposed some kind of region restriction?)

    Thanks! :)

    I would upload a backup of the keyboard for you, but I'm not sure if the author is ok with that. I don't see the harm though since it's free at the moment.

    Appreciate your help. Just don't know if it will be approved by Cyril.

    Man, I really wish the Market was universal. My phone is rooted, so I probably can get it by faking my provider right?

    I'll wait for Cyril's opinion :).
