  1. When using Dark Keyboard layout, make the littie lock picture on the shift keys white instead of Black.

    When using the Dark Keyboard layout, make the little lock picture white
    on the shift keys instead of Black. The Black on Gray is hard to see.
    The Black is ok on the white keyboard layout. Thanks Steve

  3. Keyboard shortcuts are case sensitive and ones with symbols are not recognized

    Thanks to user reports we have just been made aware of these issues:

    1. PadKeys is case-sensitive: If you have a shortcut "xx" -> "something", then typing "Xx" will not trigger the shortcut. You have to type "xx".

    2. PadKeys won't recognize shortcuts like "x@y" -> "xray1@yowzer.com" at all.

    We are working on these and hope to submit a new version to the App Store in a couple of days. As always, folks interested in getting the fix sooner can open a ticket with us and we'll add you to the list to receive beta versions through TestFlight…

    OK this has been taken care of in 1.3.2. Sorry it took so long to get out, there was an unrelated issue that derailed the review process a bit.

    Please open a new issue if something is still not behaving as expected.

  4. Add setting option to disable forward-delete key

    On the Settings window, add a toggle control that determines whether the forward-delete key is enabled or disabled. That will allow those of us who use PadKeys primarily in Safari to keep it from freezing everything if we accidentally tap that key (which happens with disturbing regularity in my neck of the woods), while retaining the abiliy to turn it back on in safer environments.

    I agree this is annoying, but Apple really should fix this bug rather than us doing gymnastics around it. Let’s see if iOS 9.3 can manage it.

    UPDATE: Due to continuing inaction by Apple, we have implemented a work-around in version 2.2 at a small cost to the functionality. The delete key now operates somewhat more slowly and does not repeat on hold. But Safari hanging is largely prevented.

  5. 3 issues

    Love the idea of this, but PadKeys needs definite improvements. The number row is so short I'm constantly hitting letters below. Also, the spell check row is too short on height as well. So I look up and my sentence is jibberish. It would also help to have the most common suggestions in the center working outwards instead of to the left where it's harder to see and further away from where your eye naturally goes. Lastly, the delete button is funky. It needs to be a square not some "tetras shape" where I'm constantly getting a bracket symbol mixed…

    Over several recent releases, we’ve increased number row and suggestions bar height on the iPad in portrait mode. We’ve also made the edges of the screen more sensitive so that when tapping the lower part of the inverted-L backspace in US English one can aim more away from the bracket. (If it is still irritating, and you can put up with the British spelling suggestions, use the “English, UK” layout which has a rectangular backspace key.)

  7. Tastatur

    Hallo. Das ist die kleinste Tastatur die ich kenne. Die Buchstaben sind enorm klein. Um ein Alternativ Buchstaben zu bekommen, muss ich unter meine Fingerkuppen schauen. Könnten Sie das korrigieren. Auch ein Apostroph fehlt. Die Wörter im Balken sind zu dunkel.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen Markus.

  8. Sometimes autocorrect persists with a replacement

    Sometimes autocorrect will replace something repeatedly even if I backspace over it.

    I would like to get the German 'Umlaut' by pressing the letter a o u a little bit longer until the Umlaut appears like it is with the original Apple keyboard on the iPhone...

  11. Compress the Keyboard in Horizontal-Mode (by choice)

    I ask for an alternate compressed mode/layout for the keyboard in horizontal mode. That mode should be switched only by choice. I found out by testing many apps, that many of them expect a specific space (height) of the keyboard, especially in horizontal mode. To often apps are using the ios gray shortcut panel for necessary functions as in notes or pages. Most times I need both - the PadKeys panel plus the ios panel. But than at some apps I can even not view, what I am typing because it is shown in the vertical middle of the screen.…

    Thank you for the suggestion. We have implemented this in the just-released version 2.1.2. When in landscape mode, you may long-press the keyboard-away key to toggle a shorter layout. This layout will be “remembered” until you switch it back, but in portrait mode it is not active (since they keyboard is already short enough, relatively speaking). Note also that this mode is not active on the large iPad Pro since a shorter layout is used by default there anyway.

  12. Make keyboard clicks like heardnin the application store video.

    Keyboard clicks are as useless sounding asnin the ipads built in keyboard.

  13. Check Text Replacement in swipe mode

    Text replacement data currently does not seem to be accessed while swiping, but it should be accessed before any other dictionary, and used as the first/default suggestion.

    In version 3.1, shortcuts consisting of just lowercase letters are handled. Case-sensitive ones and ones containing symbols are not yet, but these may be less common.

  14. Make the number row taller/equal to the letter row to avoid mishitting keys!

    Please make the number row the same height as the letter rows. When it is shorter, it is super easy to get letters inputed instead of the proper number selected.

    [Edit] I only use iPad Pro 10.5". Probably 75/25 portrait to landscape mode.

    In the 4.2.2 release we increased the number row and suggestions bar heights a bit in iPad portrait mode.

    Note we’ve been asked repeatedly to reduce the overall keyboard height in iPad landscape mode so we probably will not make any changes there.

    If anyone has any further thoughts, either for iPad or iPhone, please post here, thanks!

  15. Easier access to the word you spelt.

    When autocorrect changes your word and you hit delete to go back to the end of the word it (the original word) should come up as an option. This is the case with the standard iPad keyboard.
    Having to delete 3 times or hit the x next to the suggested word is frustrating.

  16. Can I change the $ key on 4 to £ for UK keyboard?

    This might already be available but can't seem to find it.
    You have various language keyboards including UK and UK/PC.
    Even Apple include £ symbol on the MacBook keyboard for UK machines.

    As of version 2.1, opt-space now produces a non-breaking space. This is indicated by the non-breaking space symbol shown on the right side of the space bar when opt is active. Non-breaking hyphen is the first option in the key popup menu for the hyphen key.

    Please note that not all iOS apps support these characters and may convert them into their regular equivalents. For example, the Mail app does this conversion. On the other hand, Nebulous Notes is an example of an app which preserves the non-breaking attributes.

  19. Extend key flick to cursor keys

    Apple keyboard uses vertical slide down on key taps e.g. to access symbols. would be great if you could do similar and go one better -- vertical upwards should do CAPS. on cursor keys it could do prev/next word without the annoying need for option key use.

    ...or even one vertical direction for prev word and the other for prev sentence?! vertical cursor movement would be better but I understand Apple don't give access.

  20. Different key sounds

    Would love to have the black keys (numbers etc) have a different sound, a third sound for shifted keys and one for the spacebar, would make it much easier to hear that the typing is correct
