Gingerbread Keyboard On Froyo

Gingerbread Keyboard On Froyo

Post Rating

If you’re using Android phone, fat chances are – just like me – you’re using Android 2.2 also known as Froyo. According to Android Device Dashboard, we correspond to 51.8%  of the whole android population

Now most of you should have heard about Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It has been released, but so far its only officially available on Nexus S and other unreleased devices. One aspect that we really like about Gingerbread is the new keyboard. Well, guess what – there’s now an easy way to make it available for Froyo devices, no root access needed. Just download, install and boom – it works just like that on my TMobile G2.

Here are the three easy steps:

  1. go to Android Market and install Keyboard from Android 2.3 by Steven Lin
  2. go to Settings, Language & keyboard – then activate Gingerbread Keyboard
  3. on an input area, hold down and change Input Method – choose Gingerbread Keyboard

Enjoy your new keyboard. Its way more accurate and responsive, and looks much nicer too.

Pretty neat huh! You can support the developer by buying the 0.99 donation version on the market.
