Re: Custom keyboard versus main app #poll

David Nason

Honestly I could count on one hand the number of times I've used the main app since the custom keyboard cane along. Its just so convenient.
I would only use the main app now if writing something fairly long, where I know I will need to enter some words manually, or enter numbers. Once the custom keyboard is fully featured, I can't imagine ever using the main app.
That said, everyone is different so I am sure it makes sense to keep both around, plus that is likely part of the business model being envisaged.

Well, maybe they won't be able to split it but I say whatever. How
inconvenient is it really to have the main app installed even if someone
doesn't intend to use it? It's not as if it will get in the way of the
custom keyboard which will be accessed from a text input area like all
other software keyboards. And I can't imagine that the main app uses much
memory to be installed.

Hi Allen,
I doubt that. When the fleksy keyboard was made to go system wide, they
still required a app to do updates and it any kind of add-ons that may
have been for sale as in app purchases.
Best thing to do is just make a folder and stick it in there and hide it
someplace. I have a folder on my iPhone that I called junk drawer, it’s a
bunch apps that I have on my phone that I might use some day, probably
won’t, but I can just stick them all in there and not worry about them.

If by stating that you hope the main app is removed when the custom
keyboard is released you mean removed completely from the Apps Store, that
seems sort of a selfish viewpoint. Just because you won't be using the
main app doesn't mean others won't be. But maybe the main app and custom
keyboard will be split into two separate apps and you'll be able to remove
it from your own device.

I just responded to the poll. My hope is when the custom keyboard is
released that the application is removed. I see no use of having both
around. The custom keyboard once complete will dominate use and I see no
purpose of it. I use the custom keyboard ninety nine percent of the time
and the other one percent I use the apple keyboard. I do not and have
never have used the main application since the custom keyboard was
released. In my opinion also it is harder to maintain two applications
when only one is needed. This is my personal opinion bind you.

Sincerely,, mike

A new poll has been created:

We know there are still severe limitations with the custom keyboard, but
we'd like to better understand exactly how useful it is for you in its
current state.

So the burning question is: which do you use more, the custom keyboard or
the main app?

1. The custom keyboard
2. The main app
3. About the same
