Android Hacker’s Keyboard

Here’s a full 5-row keyboard including arrow and Esc/Ctrl keys, intended for tablets, but you can install it on your phone too.

Are you missing the key layout you’re used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys.

This keyboard is especially useful if you use ConnectBot for SSH access. It provides working Tab/Ctrl/Esc keys, and the arrow keys are essential for devices such as the Xoom tablet or Nexus S that don’t have a trackball or D-Pad.

The supported keyboard layouts include:
- Arabic (العربية)
- British (en_GB)
- Czech (Čeština)
- Dvorak English (language "en-DV")
- English (QWERTY)
- Finnish (Suomi)
- French (Français, AZERTY)
- German (Deutsch, QWERTZ)
- Hebrew (עברית)
- Romanian (Română)
- Russian (Русский)
- Spanish (Español)
- Slovenian (Slovenščina)/Bosnian/Croatian/Latin Serbian

Completion dictionaries are provided by plug-in packages, see the "other applications by this developer" section for the currently available list. The keyboard also supports use of dictionaries (but not keyboard layouts) provided by AnySoftKeyboard language packs.

The permissions requested by the application are those needed by the underlying Gingerbread keyboard. It uses the contacts information for completion of names and email addresses, and audio recording for the voice input feature.

I think it’s a very useful keyboard for anyone who likes using their phone/tablet not only for games and funny apps, with a very original design for an Android keyboard

To install, get Hacker’s Keyboard from the Android Market, plus optional dictionary packs.
