If you’re like the many users out there who wants more stylish-looking keyboards, you’ll probably agree that nothing spells bland’ better than the default Android keyboard. This is regardless of what type of device you’re using. Indeed, it only ever serves a practical purpose. And even so, it still lacks some of the best features that custom keyboard apps have. If you want a good example of a solid keyboard app, we can certainly vouch for Keyboard for Me.
Keyboard for Me, for one, seeks to bring color and life to your keyboard by replacing the dull white color of the default one with up to 7 color choices. The colors call to mind most of the hues present in modern operating systems, which virtually ensures that they will fit the overall theme of any of the latest Android devices. They also go well with the colors that a lot of today’s popular messengers use.
The aesthetically-pleasing styles are only half of what makes this app great, though, as it certainly shines in convenience as well. A great example of why this is so is because of the app’s focus on helping users type as fast and as accurately as possible. And what could be niftier than throwing a voice input key feature in the mix as well? With this, you need not type anything at all since the app would use voice recognition to instantly convert what you said into text.
A lot like other keyboard apps, Keyboard for Me also incorporates predictive input. However, it certainly introduces a novelty with its ability to learn new words. It works by letting users input words that they tend to use all the time or simply new words that most keyboards don’t recognize (e.g. jargon, slang). With this, you can basically create your own in-app dictionary, and every time you type words included in it, the predictive input kicks in for you to be able to use the word with minimal effort. One last notable feature is the double-space period. True to its name, it makes it possible for you to place a period by double tapping the spacebar.
The obvious features of Keyboard for Me that pretty much struck us as very much unique are its ability to allow users to create their own dictionary and the voice input key. The former is an undoubtedly smart feature that really complements the predictive input feature of most keyboards. Both are very responsive features since they practically decrease your typing time further. Once you get used to it, it’s technically possible to type even the lengthiest sentences in a microsecond.
