Compass Keyboard

International keyboard

CompassKeyboard's main goal is to enable entering any character (including international characters and symbols of computer languages as well) with the same layouts. Default layouts support Latin- and Cyrillic-based and Greek character sets: user-definable external layouts are supported as well. For entering a plain character just swipe a key to some direction: for entering some accented ones, do a big swipe across the whole keyboard. Depending on the direction of the big swipe, you can choose different sets of accenting. For choosing a different layout, do a big swipe from the top-left corner of the keyboard across to bottom-down, and choose a layout from L0 to L6 (L0:Latin, L1:Cyrillic, L2:Greek, L3-L6:Custom). To get a visual feedback about the symbol you are about to enter, visit the entries 'Feedback/Normal feedback' and 'Feedback/Password feedback' in the Settings menu, and choose either Toast or Highlight.


Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
