Minuum keyboard hands-on

The Minuum keyboard isn't new, however we did see the v2.0 release arrive in the Play Store earlier this morning. This latest release not only had the keyboard officially exiting the beta period, but it also brought a 30-day trial version for those not yet ready to fully commit. Minuum regularly sells for $3.99, so having a free trial available seems like a solid perk.

Minuum keyboard exits beta as v2.0, brings 30-day trial option

Keyboard options are one of the perks of using Android. There are numerous third party keyboard options available, some of which have proven easier to adopt. One of the slightly more difficult to initially grasp is Minuum, which at a quick glance -- looks rather different from the traditional QWERTY layout. Of course, it is really the regular layout, just minimized.

Fleksy update brings emoji and “My Fleksy” personalization

The Fleksy Keyboard app has recently been updated. This latest is currently available from the Play Store, and will bring the keyboard up to version 1.2.3. Perhaps key here, the changes that come along with the new version number. This time around there is emoji and something called My Fleksy.

SwiftKey 4.5 beta update improves emoji experience

SwiftKey v4.5 was first introduced back in December. That update was released as a beta, but perhaps more important -- it was one that added support for emoji. Also included in that update was an optional number row. While the beta releases are made available for all, they do have to be sideloaded, which means the update process is not as automatic as compared to the Play Store experience.

SwiftKey beta gets a “performance and memory” related update

The SwiftKey 4.5 beta first introduced emoji and an optional number row back in December. That same beta saw a holiday themed update a bit later in December with the introduction of an "Ice" themed keyboard. While there isn't any set timeline as to when these beta releases graduate, they do see updates from time to time, and they can also expire after a set period. Well, it looks like the former has happened as the folks at SwiftKey have released an update.

SwiftKey update brings holiday “Ice” theme and bug fixes

The latest SwiftKey update has arrived in the Play Store and as we sometimes see given the time of year, this one includes some holiday cheer. Specifically, the folks at SwiftKey have added a new theme called Ice. The overall color of the Ice theme is blue, however you will get a bit of something extra when you begin typing.

Google Keyboard updated, now gives the option for blue or white

One of the great things about Android are the keyboards. We can switch at-will, even choosing to swap in and out of third party keyboards if we like. With that diversity comes competition, leading even Google to respond by updating their stock offering. While as polarizing as any other keyboard, Google’s is pretty good -- maybe even the best.
