Swiss German Keyboard
add swiss german keyboard layout
We are probably going to do this but have been trying to fully get the newly-introduced phone layouts fully settled and debugged first. Sorry about the delay.
For reference, we currently understand the main differences of Swiss German from German keyboard to be:
- Put French é,à,è in place of Ö,Ä,Ü
- Remove ß (or possibly put a special ‘ss’ key in place of it
- Add ç
- Largely different shifted number row
If this might be of interest for your development:
CH layout please
I am waiting for German-CH layout (with Swiss specials like ss instead of ß and more…).
I read in a rating from Feb 2017 that a customer is missing this feature and the developer is investigaging it, but cannot find out if this feature is integrated now.

In Switzerland you often write text including both german and french words. The difference between Swiss-German layout and Swiss-French layout is only at three keys: the Swiss-German variety has the German umlauts (ä, ö, ü) accessible without dead keys, while the Swiss-French version has the French accented characters (é, à, è) accessible in the unshifted state.
There is a big difference to the layout of Germany/Austria concerning all the shift characters. For example:
shift 3 = § at Germany, = * at Switzerland
shift 4 = $ at Germany, = ç at Switzerland
