Hacker's Keyboard

Are you tired of trying to edit your typing without the arrow keys?  Are you missing the key layout you’re used to from your computer?   I discovered the Hacker’s Keyboard and find that it is much more user-friendly than the default Android keyboard.  It is a full 5-row keyboard including arrow and Esc/Ctrl keys, intended for tablets, and yes it works with the Ployer Momo9 running ICS!

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.

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)
– Bulgarian (български език)
– Czech (Čeština)
– Danish (dansk)
– English Dvorak (language “en_DV”)
– English (QWERTY)
– English/British (en_GB)
– Finnish (Suomi)
– French (Français, AZERTY)
– German (Deutsch, QWERTZ)
– Greek (ελληνικά)
– Hebrew (עברית)
– Italian (Italiano)
– Lao  
– Norwegian (Norsk bokmål)
– Portuguese (Português)
– Romanian (Română)
– Russian (Русский)
– Serbian (Српски)
– Slovak (Slovenčina)
– Slovenian (Slovenščina)/Bosnian/Croatian/Latin Serbian
– Spanish (Español)
– Swedish (Svenska)
– Thai (ไทย)
– Turkish (Türkçe)
– Ukrainian (українська мова)
