Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

Android :: The Portrait Screen Even The Hard Keyboard Is Popped

Aug 31, 2010

I specified an activity to be portrait-only in menifest file:

CODE:...................

But it won't work on Droid when its hard keyboard is popped out.

When hard keyboard is popped out, the device always renders the layout of the activity in landscape orientation first, then it switches it back to portrait orientation. How can I let the app only render the activity in portrait orientation?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Android Keyboard Response - Landscape And Portrait Mode

Sep 2, 2010

I am having a lot of difficulty with my keyboard in both landscape and portrait. I am using the "Android Keyboard" that came with the phone. Examples of what I am referring to:

1. Wrong Key Showing: I type one letter and a different one is actually displayed.
2. Horrible Response: I get half way through an email and realize I need to fix an error in the middle of the paragraph. Trying to get the cursor where I want it a extremely hard to do and often it will move, but not where it is suppose to be moved to. Other times the cursor simply doesn't move at all and I have to erase all the back to where the error is and than retype. And no the cut and paste or copy and paste do not work since the cursor is not moving.
3. Random sentences just erase: I will be typing and hit the back key to erase a character, but instead it erases a line or two and won't stop.

Suggestions and no I am not going to root and void the warranty.

4. Input text
5. Tap desired Website
6. Rotate Hero to Landscape
7. Tap Menu
8. Tap More
9. Tap Find on Page

HTC EVO 4G : Way To Get Keyboard Replacement?

Jun 10, 2010

I like the way my EVO keyboard looks; and, like the fact that I can just click on the microphone anytime to just "tell" it what to write. However, even in landscape mode, I'm having some trouble hitting the right keys; and, I dont have fat fingers either. I saw the slideIT keyboard ad which looks pretty good; but dont know if it has speech recognition or if there's anything else that might be missing. Is there a keyboard replacement that completely replaces the existing keyboard without any compromise; and have keys that are easier to type on?

General :: ZTE Blade - Hide Status Bar In Landscape But Not In Portrait For Big Keyboard?

Aug 9, 2012

I'd like to have the following:

In Portrait mode: normal size keyboard in Landscape mode: big size keyboard, should use about 70 -80 % of the screen.

Currently I am using Hackers Keyboard, 4 Row, 70% size. There are 2 lines left to see, when typing.

Is there a way or an app so the android status bar (clock, battery, etc) is hidden when turning the phone from Portrait to Landscape so the whole screen can be used for typing?

ZTE Blade,

Android 2.3.5

Android :: Better Keyboard - Switch From T9 Keyboard To Regular Qwerty Keyboard

Apr 18, 2010

For those of you that are familiar with better keyboard. I was wondering about an easy way to switch from the t9 keyboard to the regular qwerty keyboard. I was under the impression that swiping left would toggle between the 2 but all that does is bring me to the numbers and symbols keyboard. I've been changing back and forth to the android keyboard because its faster than going into the better keyboard settings.
