How can we make PadKeys better?

Full stop on French keyboard

I've just bought the app and as I often use a French keyboard, the inclusion of the commonly accented characters as discrete keys is a great facility. However, it seems that to enter a full stop you need to use Shift. Double tapping doesn't seem to work. As full stops are used regularly this seems a bit odd.

    As we’ve said elsewhere, it is not our intention to innovate the keyboard layout. We take the PadKeys layouts straight from Apple’s Macbook keyboards, which you can see on this page (including French):

    I can’t really speak to WHY the period requires a shift in the French layout, but we assume people are used to it.

    However, please let us know if the Apple page is wrong / outdated, or if there is some other reason we should not be using the published Macbook layout in this case.
