Ratings and Reviews
My previous issue of the keyboard covering the screen has been resolved. The change with the colors while using smart invert is also nice, thanks I use this 99% of the time.
The only thing I find, maybe I missed a setting or something, is autocapitalize and shortcuts is not working. Maybe those only work with the IOS keyboard?
Anyway, great job, I love it.

Thanks for the feedback, that was a bug from the iOS update which has been corrected.
We did reply to your comment but for some reason it did not register.
We have also added improvements according to feedback from our users and maximised the letter size for all iPad models and made instruction videos for using, installing and updating Big Keys.

Good replacement key board for low vision people.
Developers choice of placement of toggle key back to standard keyboard is better than the default.
I am not a low vision person but wife who is and is pleased with this app.
As expected (Apple restriction?) the space bar trackpad feature doesn’t work. BUT has curser key on each side of space bar!
tis is a great keyboard
in your next update could you add some different key colors
Multiple colors like red and green and dark pink. And red orange colors against white Or black. It would be most appreciated.
