Android Keyboard Worth Paying For : Adaptxt Review
Keyboard to save Keystrokes. Something which can put quick message with little efforts. Trying my hands on Adaptxt Keyboard and sharing my review about it. Android users are privileged to change input methods and use keyboard interface of their choice which fueled innovation in text input field. Adaptxt is a result of the same.[appbox googleplay com.kpt.adaptxt.beta ]
Interface: Each button has long press function so that you don’t have to change complete layout in order to add a punctuation or a smiley. This shows that developers have given a thought while designing the layout of keyboard providing easy access to most used symbols and punctuations.
Support for languages is more than I could imagine. Around 93 languages and 44 industry-specific dictionaries available.
By saying industry specific, I mean to say the words used in IT, Legal or say Basketball or Cricket. If you are the one coming under any specific group and discuss much over these topics, predictions will come handy and increase the typing speed.
Easy copy-cut-paste functionality. No need to tap on words again and again to select for editing any post. Moving cursor while selecting characters is sometimes difficult especially on low end phones with bad touch response. Adatxt offers buttons to handle that for you.
Keyboard customization: Though it has few themes based on festival, color and events but you can even customize each element yourself. This includes color, gradient, size of buttons and even Fonts.
My Opinion: I consider myself pretty good at Virtual keyboards. Predictions on Adaptxt were pretty accurate and typing experience was fluid. Using Hinglish (which is Hindi + English) for most of the conversations and impressed with the suggestions provided by the keyboard. Language can be switched with just a swipe on spacebar which again saves keystrokes.
Only thing you will miss (if on Android 4.4 Kitkat) is emoji support.
Using Google keyboard till now which I considered to be fastest Android keyboard but industry keeps changing, innovations keep coming. Adaptxt deserves a free trial on your device for sure if you do not believe my words. Later on can be purchased for 0.99$ from Play store.
Free Alternative: Swiftkey has just announced that it will be completely free. Gives a close competition but with few shortcomings as compared to Adaptxt.
