Important Q&A

Do I need to pay to use A Keyboard ?

Of course not, you can earn the access using our firstegems which you earn by trying some apps. It takes less than 1 Min with most apps or you can buy some firstecredits and pay for the content. We need your funding as ever to keep improving.

Do I need to log in to use your Keyboard?
Yes, We have had previous versions where you did not need to log in and it was a chaos tracking people who bought and did not get the items. Managing dictionaries etc.

Are you stealing my data ?
No, Your data is secure and is of no gain to us.

If I give you a 1 star review will i get access free ?
No! We will never succumb to the review terrorists. our product cost us both time and money and should you want it free there is a simple way to earn it within the app. One star reviews will get you nothing.

Uninstalling it Deleting this as you have to register with them WTF its a keyboard so no need for them to back up my settings it is just not needed, this may well be the app I need an would be willing to pay for it but until I've tried it I won't know, not willing to register until I've tried it

Gabriel Simpson

Now a must on my phone changes :-) I switch between this and Ai every now and then as AI has some features i want to use and so does this, but i find that when i need to type without the fancy smanshy non sense and use a very simple 12 button keyboard this is the only one i can use without cringing

William Franklin

Battery seems to last longer When using this keyboard my battery seems to not run out like with some other keyboards. I do not know what is causing the drainage from other keyboards, with this i get to use my battery for longer.

Sean Forrester

Surprised the Hells outta me Obviously you are reading this, and when i read the reviews before installing i was surprised at just how much went into bashing this app and i thought let me download it and if it is crap i will uninstall in 2 mins, Not a fan of being asked for my details but everyone asks for it now so not a surprise. but the overall experience was much better than suggested. the app worked perfectly for me.

Anelissa Stanibol

BLIND LEADING THE BLIND *** Having to purchase 3 x 4 keyboard with predictive, did come as a bit of a shock as all my past phones had it as standard features. (A bit like buying a new car but you're only handed the key to the fuel tank, you need extra to buy key to ignition and pay extra to use fifth gear.) The shrinking the keyboard and making it less skittish must also come at a price. Trying to remember life before telephones.

Steven Herrera

No Trial I am a bit upset there is no trial but this is the only keyboard in the market which has ways for you to Earn the actual "Paid" Content. I personally think the pricing is a bit high but if you can not afford it at least there is options for me to get it free

Jodie Chambers

Lot of keyboards but only one "a Keyboard" I love this keyboard to bits and i like the way the support staff help, I had an issue and sent a mail to them i got a response immediately and then a phone call after to help me further, I felt so bad as they called and helped me for such a long time that I bought some credits

Samantha Wallace

beautiful Tom and kitty love this keyboard so much they can not stop using it all day round, when they told me about it i was doubtful. but I have to say, I am so happy they told me they loved it, as if they never did I would never have known about it and I would never have gotten into it. Bravo tom e kitty !

jenifer Lopezty

Loving the transparency settings Never saw this before when i was using the keyboard, it is AWESOME!! You should allow people to use their own pictures for themes. Great keyboard.

Suri Jay

Sickening?⚠ 1. Look around before purchasing 2. Check their websites non of them are not up neither up dated. 3. After you purchase they will lock your purchase pack and ask you to pay again. 5. When you write them they won't reply for every single letter need to attach purchase script. Otherwise no answer. 6. they leave huge comments behind but no name. I have had enough communication but nothing solved. When send proof they won't reply! Don't waste money?if you have more give to charity.

Zoe Johnston

There are other options I Love the play store as you can try a lot more applications for free and the quality of the free apps in the play-store is much more than what I had on my iPhone

Morgan Parkin

Much better than Stock! I have used this for a bit and i can say.. it is much more responsive than other keyboards i tried, It is fast and whilst some of the features are paid for it is hard for me to imagine this keyboard free without some Gimmic

Amelia Lyons

Exactly what I need I have fat fingers and need 3x4(Nokia) keyboard and I looked everywhere and this was the only place I could find it. thank you so much.

gary hogs

Fantastic One of the best keyboards on the market. If you find a better solution please let me know. So far so good. Used for a bit and i can say i don't know why this application does not come with my phone,

helen Willam

The right input method Was searching for something exactly like this for a few hours. #Satisfied

Kathleen Pinero

Wonderfully packaged The keyboard looks so nice, the layouts and themes just look so cool. It works fast and i can not find any main complaints to make yet.

derrik Wort

The Best for me. There are a few others I tried for 14 days before they asked me to cough up. I used this and it was direct to the point.. i could get it free if i wanted to share otherwise i should recognise the developers efforts, there seems so many kids who do not understand this concept.

Marcus Cowen

Good Keyboard I decided to leave this review after reading some bashful reviews and thinking "Others need to know" and as a result here i am :-)

Mia Tyler

Learns as you type. This will learn your typing habits and it back into your account. This can help you be a lot more efficient with your typing. And the customization options are just so vast! after my last device (samsung Galaxy Note 3) This app was became like my family member.

Sofia Kirk

Went through the menu I don't like being asked for my details at all. i got my premium access for free so i will not get too uppy about it. but i find it strange that everyone wants your details these days.

Janice Tulod

Not really what I expected :-( I thought I can use emojis for free, so as the theme. .i thought I can customize my own theme

manuel park

Beautiful What a surprise to read all the reviews from other GENUINE users. this keyboard is the only keyboard that doesn't keep changing what I am writing to something that i am not writing. The 12-key face is the only one i use on google,

Alisha Howarth

Themes There is so many themes and so much options in customization it is beautiful thank you.

carrie Berge

Responsive When i type it appears on the screen without the delays i had with my stock keyboard

kayes Well

Keep it up guys I keep using this now more than any other keyboard (including swiftkey), As I find it is more simple and i don't have so much hassle typing on this than with others keyboards

John Amy

I use the 2014 Theme Thank you for adding some free themes i use this and it is very nice.

Earl Winnie

Lovely Colours and themes It seems like a very nice looking keyboard, shame some of the content is paid but i guess it should be since the programmers are not eating my review. Well done Guys!

Mhon Malana

T9 This is Great! Perhaps you can make the T9 dictionary FREE?

Lara Arnold

Takes some time It took me some time to get used to the placements of the keys, but once i got used to it i can't manage without it. B-)

fabio borralho

buy activation REALLY??? I'M freakin out with these keyboard apps, the ones that are free s#uck, and the ones that seemed ok need to pay!!! f. off .|.

John Landsborough

Not for me Bought it ,then there's endless things to pay for ,plus the compact keypad keeps reverting to compact with small space bar and key press sound keeps going awol .just charge more and give access to all features its too much of a hassle,

Susan Ibrahim

Number Keyboard The Number keyboard is fantastic and is just what i have been looking for

Steve Gray

Happy there is FREE activation I invited a few friends and got my access Predictive text for free. Why is Everyone saying it is all paid content ?

Andrei Facturi

Dont like You have to registes and pay

Danielle Kemp

This looks. EPIC. You can have it your style. I always like flexible Apps. That's why I love Android.

Kenth Westin

Very slow and T9 its a mess Nice app but far away from finished. Its very slow and together with T9 its just a mess.

Chelsea Wallace

Very good keyboard There are some tiny things i hate like the Caps from time to time being wrongly placed but it is not such a big deal to edit my text, i def think this keyboard is much better than some of the lower variants you see on the play store.

Freya Middleton

Best Without a doubt, The best option when looking for a keyboard for any android device. I have been through loads this is #1

Zoe Bennett

Daily Usage I use it daily, and it really is good

Scarlett McKenzie

Fast The response on the keys are very fast and the keyboard keeps up with me and my fast fast typing skills, I an all round pleasure to type with.

greenwave rogers

If you don't like qwerty this is for you I bought this as I like the old style text keypad. If that's your priority its good . Tends to predict usa spelling whatever setting but you can type in the correct spelling and add the word.

Lenka Mikusova

Not bad Like this key board a lot. The only thing that annoys me is that it freezes and stops working often,especially when i type fast. ?

Cam Lind-Gamble

I like the numberpad function. But thats it. Its a bit money hungry. I understand they're up and coming, but they won't even allow me to use my emojis without paying for a "Pack". It's nice, but not perfect.

Bunny Beez

Love.. But, the sound tap on keyboard doesn't work. Last upon set up but when re-open to type the sound gone...

Philip Chambers

Not bad. Fixed a lot. Works better. Recently started lagging while trying to type causing me to force close and restart almost once a day.

Makoy Alayon

Commendable i like the old keypad and this app is the answer to your problems. although it sometimes reverts back to the keyboard , i hate it cuz you need to re install it. it cost you guys a star. but overall, simple and good.

Mike G

Nice but This app is very helpful for I have fat thumbs,having a qwerty keyboard on a portrait makes my thumbs enter two different letters at the same time and its horrible when you are in emergency and needs to send txt msgs.the only thing I hate bout this app is you need to buy emoticons and other stuff to be able to use it.theres another option where you can get it free,one of them is to invite your 100 friends to use this app which is impossible for me to do it.what ripp off!

Scott Johnson

Tgapatp Wgtg dtdpw jdw ppdqp. (I switched keyboards). What I typed was "vibrates with every key press" no way to turn off a battery draining option like vibrations.

Mark Gerking

Non better. I have used this for about a year on and off and it was always the right choice for me, i could not do without it. Thanks guys!

Darren Charters

Darren charters Why wont this app let you download to another device once you've already bought it from the play store,and why have to keep on paying for these nonsensical "firsties",this is not an online game,its an app to help people to text and email without having to use fiddly qwerty keyboards.

Abel Basilio

Easy to use and simply stylish I recommended this keyboard app to most of my friends on facebook..specially to those who are more familiar using a 3X4 keyboard of cellphones. Those giving bad reviews are plain good old trolls! More power to FirstApps! and thanks for not allowing ads to appear randomly like other keyboard apps do.

Chris Prunty

robbed bought the activation and it's saying I need to activate payed 5 euro for something and it's not working have receipt on my phone from Google I want my money back app is bullishit


SUPER KEYBOARD EXTREME This is the best F______ alpha numeric keyboard!! I've ever tried!! At first. I was hesitant to get the 5 first, but it turns out it was all VERY worth it!! The only regret, I didn't get the 100 first the 1st time. Easy navigation, user Friendly, so easy to install and re-install, what can I say? Excellent work. I've just one question, if I do get additional first, do they apply only to your keyboard or other apps from your company?

Sandra Meza

Like the description I haven't used it yet because I'm in the process of installing it. But I'm thinking it just might be great. If not, I will revise this review.

Mattias Magnusson

if it wasn't for all these in app purchases! This app has potential for it's customizabillity, but seriously? Monthly payments and gems to get a good keyboard? This have gone way to far. Uninstalling.

Qyshia Icykyusyaz

Its good for me cos I cn choose to use either the 3x4 or qwerty keyboard. But how do I choose to install other languages like korean hangul? Pls assist. Thks

Andres Orue

Bought activation pack I bought activation pack but it never was activated ..... Take my money and it not work

Shell clarke

Brilliant App I have Always had the emojis with this keyboard and all of a sudden I couldn't access them. I emailed to query this and was told to but was told to buy them no warning nothing. I was told also to Uninstall then reinstall, the only thing that happened was it lost all my saved words, so not a Happy bunny. Great keyboard though, best of 3x4.

Jewi Lim

almost perfect already having difficult time type question mark in 3x4.maybe some bugs. just need that fix then its perfect.

Harold M. Davis

It is good. I like it very much, tak you

Cristian Aguilar

hmmm Its good but some feature is not free.

Ketan Rupapara

Worst app Worst app... Never install it... It asks too much in app purchase for every thing... Even for word prediction facility and dictionary also......

Jameson Scott Crawford

A powerful tool! Wish it came with my standard, i never understood why most manufacturers removed the 12 keyboard from their default keyboards.

William Lee

Super Keyboard! I love this A keyboard

Dex Moses

Crap Kept bugging me about buying addons I didn't want and now my touchscreen is playing up

stoqn donchev

pay to add language.!!!!! F... you all

PatValDom B

got frustrated just trying to install .... warning Login Required

Mary-Ann Maldan

Nice,, but there's no emoji 4 this????

Sarah Campbell

Way too much to pay for. Not very easy to use. Hopefully it's worth the money!

sandra bryan

I want it a bit smaller. Its great! Only problem I have now is that I cant get it smaller. its just a little bit too big for my phone screen. Can I shrink it a little?

Justin Fronius

Thank you!!! I like it very much

Dave P

Makes U register to use this Cba with register ing my details to try out a keyboard app wtf

Angie Najera

Seriously???? All these reviews MUST be fake cause who would be happy that you have to pay $5 for predictive text??!!

Bea Z

No T9 Ugly theme. No t9 without activation

olayo collins

Nice A great keyboard have used it for long

Robin Conger

Greatest hits! Well, it is!

Lindsay Stingley

does it have t9word? I will change my review once I find out about t9word.*edit* never mind . I found another app with what I was looking for

christian kevin Deang

Decent Only trouble I have is when it automatically sign-off and my premium functions like dictionary is disabled until I get connected to the net again

Michael Nieves

Thank you.. Simple and direct

karthikeyan s

It need money Everything need money

Harry Ali

decent Slight glitches but otherwise OK.

Darren Charters

Darren charters This is a superb app with all the features you'd expect from such a well run and professional provider,very well done ?

Aamir Shahzad

it is toõo good I'm already looking for such a great and nice keybord and now I got it ... Good job develpor keep it up

Mary Eileen Baracao

Loving the keyboard :-) This keyboard is awesome. Really lovin' it!

brandon heat

Awful Wants me to buy firstes (WTF!?) and gems to unlock stuff for so many weeks. This is a keyboard. Show everything in nothing but actual money, remove the need for logins (again this is a keyboard, nothing more)

Halfey Halphstein

I customized the top row keys but the character markings on the keys didn't change to reflect the customizations. I sent a bug report a few days ago but no reply received yet. Come on! I paid for this.

Victoria Scott

Good but... I have used this a lot but just an hour ago I accidently uninstalled it. Just now redownloaded it but now all my custom words are gone and I cant get the predictive text back. Someone please do you have any advice? I already cashed when I first downloaded this... Please dont tell me I have to again :-(

srijani samanta

Thank you so much for this app . I am loving it. Amazing ... :-)

Isaac Brown

the only keyboard I need Works great. I love the 3x 4 keyboard

Franz Jason

Very good app

Kirk Jones

OK everyone give this keyboard a honest try If you have any issues or questions just give the support team a quick message and they will help you in getting it resolved. Don't give bad feedback because you can't read or figure it out. OMG the new UI and speed is awesome as always keep up the great work you all do for us ungrateful users LOL happy weekend to you all

norT Tronzn

Love it.. When I first buy a smartphone,the first thing I do is search the keyboard apps that suits me.trying so many others apps but don't like the function....qwerty keyboard is sucks!keep my head throbbing...when I see this apps,I install it and try it for 1 week.. In 15 minutes,I discover how to use the function of this using this apps almost 3 yr..never change it anymore.. So now,my big family are using this apps..thanks a lot to the developer of this apps... Like it.....

Dex Moses

Crap Kept bugging me about buying addons I didn't want and now my touchscreen is playing up, also I understand you need to make money but getting in ones face demanding money like this app does is not the time way to go, this app is like a android version of a johovas witness, good luck making sales with such a pain in the ass app

Joshua Ferguson

There used to be another keyboard that had 3x4 layout around 1 year ago i think the manufacturer Quit! the keyboard is still online but you can see loads of reviews saying that one doesn't work. i agree that maybe we should support these guys a bit more than we do..

Beaufort Jackso

Simple and effective I've had the default Samsung keyboard, the Google keyboard, Even the HTC one, this one is definitely the best of them. This is the fastest and best looking keyboard, in my opinion. The only problem is that there payment for most features. Needless to say I can understand why.

Andreja Miller

Too much like hard work Reviews like that of Maxine Holmes are the reasons why I would never in this life want to cater to second class level intelligence human being.. I feel sorry for the company that has to deal with such an idiot. I found the keyboard to be a great addition to my phone. it adds the Nokia style keyboards that I cant seem to find on any app in the store and it works like it used to do on my old Samsung S2 Ignore the ignorant and Keep up the good work!!!

Atanas Kuzmanov

Prediction does not work Dear Sir/Madam, I bought the activation and several of the packs and bundles, yet the text prediction on the abc keyboard does not work. I have a stock Nexus 5 with stock Android. I am very frustrated and disappointed with this product. All I want is an abc layout keyboard with working text prediction. Please fix this functionality. Kind regards,

Firey Flower

THANK GOD FOR A NORMAL KEYBOARD! HATE qwerty keyboards, they just make my eyes go all swirly, so was relieved to find this app as Samsung only have the crappy qwerty one. Nice big keys too - not the 'anorexic' child like small keys that make it very difficult to accurately text type. What cheeses me off is that there is no 'off switch' for the paid for features, so if you accidently click (I frequently do) on what is a premium feature, it constantly pops up and gets in the way, and you have to clear it before you can carry on.

Karoline Embry

Mate, the cheapo's you get on here like that bird moaning bout not gettin her knickers for free makes me wonder... why did i move from Apple to this cheapo chav brigade? If you find her on FB you will laugh your trousers off. she is a complete chav and i can understand why she gave you such a bad review she can afford £20 on fake nails but not on getting something she actually will use.. The keyboard is a perfect match for my phone works squids in.

Vedran Vance

one of the best keyboards i have used in terms of how similar it is to the one i used to use on my old phone. i had been looking around for something that would give me that similar feel i had on my old nokia and early HTC phones. everything you will download on the playstore seems to be a similar rip off from another keyboard this is the only one that is different.

Joseph Grant

3*4 keypad for androids I don't know why manufacturers have stopped installing 3*4 keypads on android phones, but they are the best keyboards for my money. They are fast, and easy to use. No hassle in remembering where letters (and numbers) are located. Kudos to Samsung for installing 3*4 keypads on all their phones, and if I had been using my Samsung, to write this text, I definitely would have completed this text (being about 7mins so far) in less than two minutes.

Tin X-man

Perfect keyboard! I got it when it still was an app with prepayment. Now it changed to very free model but I don't get all the people saying it is not free!! It seems you get two kinds of people in the playstore. I got this because it is simply is the no 1 keyboard on here 8)

Fredrik Campbell

Seems like it could do with one more update for the perfect keyboard will keep an eye on the progress

Miro Avery

Works a Treat! Used for a bit and i can not complain about how responsive it is. it seems to work much better than all the other keyboards i have used for a long while.

Marphisa Martin

I don't dislike it I love A keyboard, had it for a long time with several phone's, SwiftKey keyboard no longer is my main keyboard, keep switching back to A keyboard Samsung style keyboard. this keyboard has saved me from all the hassle I was having.

Teddy-B Lucas

Crap App I shouldn't have to buy gems or in app purchases to use the function in which I downloaded the app. It's like going to a barber shop for a hair cut and the barber tells you that in order to get a cut you must pay for each clipper that is needed

Suri Jay

Totally ↔Bullshit! 1. I have had enough conversations with you to get my access for what I paid for some time ago! 2. Non of you don't listen or give attention what a paid customer say or complain. 3. What you are doing is scamming and I am going to report it to Google play reviewboard. If someone paid for a keyboard there is no way to loose access for premium functions after every single update! If you let people to repay again for what they already paid it is a *scam*

Michael Russo

Great app but not close to perfect and kinda expensive

Usman Sunny

usman its very very bad.very bad.bakwas.

Felecia Steed

Bad app they make you pay to unlock features that dont even work!!! T9 doesnt work!!! predictive text doesnt work!!! What a waste of money and time

Halfey Halphstein

Needs autocorrect and next word suggestions. Hope to see those features soon.

Ting Ee Hwa

Good app I like it a lot

Anush Kumar

nice app This application is very good.

Saqib Sahi

uninstall at every feature it says activate it suck nothing is free

Jude Pomida

I like this app I want this installed first on my phone. Can you make this more light so it will not consume too much storage? Thanks

Jonathan Hall

Working again Working fine now again and back to its best, love this keyboard, makes typing so much easier

mark wilkes

a keyboard Thank you for fixing this app. Now its back to the greatness that it always was. The new predictive is not as good as the original as it doesn't recognize a lot of everyday words.

Kirk Jones

No joke these developers rock...OMG here we go again yet another update...raising the bar making haters of a wonderful product! Not once have I ever been unhappy or dissatisfied with anything these great developers have given us...the end users, option to pay or earn full access to the best keyboard that everyone inspires to achieve. Water on a ducks back to the stupid haters...jealousy is a motivator that you can't defeat. Love this app keep rocking and if the phone makers wake up they will want it on all flagship phones. Love it and would pay again to keep you all working to help us that can't provide such great products!

Michael Russo

ALL My words went from accessible to having to search for them so irritating unbelievable! please fix!!! Or tell me how to Get my words with ease which this update is supposed to have done it took me Twice as Long to right this cuz all my Often words disappears or went to bottom

Saidur Rahman

Query how to fixed profile pic?

Martin Belinsky

Great keyboard Has everythng you want ina tablet keyboard. I USE IT ON MY PHONE ALSO.

Walter Lim

Vikalp Vyas

Shamil N

Disappointing with last updation Keyboard is not working properly after the last updation...pls fix it...

john rommel valledor

Put simple tutorial how to start. confusing. It takes me 10mins to fig. Others might uninstall your app right away because don't know how to start.

Chaz Miller

CAVEAT EMPTOR! SPYWARE! Developer requires ability to literally read Facebook posts and comments himself. Will publish what he calls "terrorist reviews" to Twitter without permission. Insults and "flags" most 1-star reviewers to Google. See READ MORE and his replies to negative reviews for proof. BEWARE! Permissions also include full access to your identity, contacts, all files, who you call... everything a keyboard does not need to work. Orwellian. 1 star = insulting "can't afford to pay" for it replies. Scroll to the bottom of READ MORE: "In app purchases: $1.29-$89.99 per item"! Play Store's most convoluted, and deceptively expensive keyboard. And bitches about review revisions, but doesn't say it's because of his equal number of insulting replies and threats. VOYEUR, LIAR, CON ARTIST, and RUDE!

Hayden Scott

Too complicated!! Yea, no ads but you gotta pay for everything.. Can't even use emojis. Bye

Usman Afzal

Best keybord ever I am using it since many years and i can type faster then others who use full keybord

chethan kummi

Chetan a It is the most wanted keyboard o love it

Bernadeth Jane Curato

Mohamed Nayeem
