      Hi,

      I’ve added screenshots from the simulator of how PadKeys looks on the XS Max in regular and short modes. Are you saying you would want a setting where the keyboard becomes taller than it already is in “regular” mode? (Note: we don’t have any control over the width.)

      Thanks.

      I'm willing to pay (up to $100) to get this implemented!!!

      Please let me know the price (or if it'll cost more than $100), and your PayPal address; and I'll send the money over.

      P.S. Alternatively, let me know your email, so we may discuss this further. I'd love to hear what you think :)

      Could you please add a setting where the keyboard (only in landscape mode) becomes taller than it already is in "regular" mode.

      Note: only the letter keys need to be taller (see screenshot).

      I think only the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone XS Max would be able to support "tall" mode.

      P.S. If you're unable to allow this on only larger iPhone models, perhaps add a caution saying "Enable this setting on Plus-size iPhone models only!"

      Only the following iPhone models (excluding iPhone XR, I think) would be able to support this 'taller' mode, due to their wider screen displays (or taller in the case of 'landscape mode').

      Here are the screen widths (or heights in the case of 'landscape mode'):
      iPhone 6 Plus (3.06"/77.8mm), iPhone 7 Plus (3.07"/77.9mm), iPhone 8 Plus (3.07"/78.1mm), iPhone XS Max (3.05"/77.4mm), iPhone XR (2.98"/75.5mm)

      Yes. By creating another mode, called "tall" or "long" mode.

      Like in the following image:

      Note: only the letter keys need to be taller

      Also, please keep the spacing between (above and below) the keys exactly the same as 'regular' mode, or you may reduce the spacing (above and below) if you'd like.

      Update: Could you please instead, just add a press-hold button (called "long mode"). Or add a setting which toggles the current 'short mode' button into a 'long mode' button. So when you activate 'long mode', it makes all the keys bigger, more like square-looking iPad keys (like in my screenshot).

      Actually could you implement this not just for the iPhone XS Max, but for all iPhones larger than 5.5"

      Remember: only in landscape mode.

      Many thanks for all your hard work!!!

      The keys should only be bigger in landscape mode. Portrait mode can remain as is.

        What you are saying makes sense, and would not be hard to implement. However the trick is to keep the configuration simple for the user. It starts to feel clunky when you are having to select layout and language separately.

        One idea might be to have an “override layout” selector which if unset (the default) leaves behavior as now. If it IS set, that layout always takes precedence, and only the language changes when selecting by the regular mechanism.

        How does this sound? It would be preferrable not to even add this one additional selector, but I cannot think of any simpler way.

        Hey PadKeys,

        The "override layout" selector idea causing a selected layout to take precedence (and only the language changing) sounds like an awesome idea!

        I think it would be very helpful to implement this.
