This is by far the best Esperanto keyboard I have found. Others work alright, but can't be accessed as a normal keyboard to be used anywhere I want; this one allows you to do that. The reason I leave off one star is because I think it would be better if, instead of moving four letters to the area normally reserved for numbers, you had it set up so I could hold down the c and have ĉ appear above it as an option. Many existing keyboards for natlangs allow for this, like English and Vietnamese. It would allow for slightly larger keys as the ones now are a bit small and I make more mistakes this way. It's hard to backspace too so I end up typing ĥĥĥĥĥĥĥ at the end of what I'm trying to fix. Lastly, it would be nice if other parts of it reacted to your current keyboard settings, so you could turn the suggestions and clicks off if you wanted. If these were changed, I would say this is the absolute best app you could use for Esperanto!
Handy app, needs user inputs and missing some vocab.
Handy app, especially in duolingo on my phone. Should have input collection, due to missing words and the fact that this is a keyboard for a language. Should have user collection so that users can fill in the blanks while devs are adding vocab to make things easier for everybody.
"Serĉi" devus esti "Serĉu" kaj "Iri" devus esti "Iru" kiam oni retumus.
Cumbersome and missing symbols.
I love the ability to type Esperanto characters anywhere, and this is probably the best Esperanto keyboard app out there at the moment. But it has a few problems.
First, I have to go to the symbols menu for question marks, exclamation points, and even commas and periods. It slows me down A LOT when I'm typing. I would definitely prefer it to have the same functionality as the default Apple keyboard in regards to the punctuation.
Second, it's missing a couple characters. The characters ~ and & aren't on the keyboard anywhere, and it doesn't have the spesmilo character (the one special symbol I would expect out of an Esperanto keyboard).
It's a good app, but it needs a few revisions before I would consider it an effective keyboard.
