External Keyboard 1.04
|Continue to app|
This application provides keyboard layouts for external USB/Bluetooth keyboards for all Android 4.1 and newer devices.
The main purpose of this application is:
- to allow the configuration of layout for keyboards erroneously not shown in Settings app
- to provide keyboard layouts missing from the standard Android external keyboard set. (Also, some manufacturers do not include the external keyboard layouts package at all...)
- to fix issues of the commonly distributed keyboard layouts (e.g. non working Caps Lock for some national characters - namely Czech and Slovak key layouts)
There's no unnecessary background service or input method added. This is just a pure system solution for keyboard configuration as intended in Android since 4.1 JellyBean release.
Suggestions for inclusion of additional layouts or fixing of bugs in the current layouts are welcome.
Currently supported layouts:
English (US), International style
English (US), Colemak style
English (US), Dvorak style
English (US), Workman style
Russian, Mac style
Spanish (Latin America)

1.04: Corrected link to physical keyboard settings for Android 7 and newer; added additional keyboard layouts
