Best DVORAK App I've been able to find. I compared this to the other DVORAK app by xenionsh, and I I like this one much better. Although the other app has a larger vertical key size than this one, making this app slightly more prone to vertical errors, I found that the autocorrect on this app works so well that it more than makes up for this small deficiency. Also, I really love the extra features that take up the additional vertical space: the dictionary words, which can be helpful for typing long words, and the left and right arrows are both really useful additions. I wrote a more thorough review on the main app's page for AnySoftKeyboard. I think this keyboard app as a whole is outstanding.

Huh. Colemak's best for full-size kbs, Dvorak wins for 2 thumbs, but they're both even worse than QWERTY for 1 thumb. Whatever happened to FITALY?

Sean Montague

Text disappears in landscape on GS3 I've used this app for a long time, but on my GS3, the text area is blank when in landscape mode. This is a pain in the butt given the keys for dvorak are small to begin with, but really small in portrait mode.

A Google User

Love the resizeing you can do with the keyboard and I'm going to be different and not like the special keyboards. QWERTY ALL THE WAY!!!

D. Jacobson

Great app, but… It needs to 'remember' the last usage of a letter combination.

Kandi Klover

Great Qwerty sucks. The xeonish app is outdated and awful

Good at awkward times Lovelly dvorak layout. Would benefit from demotion list. Duplicated , and. keys in dvorak layout. Space bar should take that space, way too small. 2.5*

A Google User

it was the best, free dvorak keyboard i could find, even though there was NO SEMICOLON. now i use the hacker's keyboard. watch this: ;;;! uninstalled.

Best keyboard for Colemak Best colemak keyboard that I've tried with android. My only problem with it is that the delete key and the shift/caps lock key are switched. I shift when I want to delete and vice versa. Why are these backwards!? other than that. GREAT

A Google User

dose not work at all Samsung Intercept

A Google User

Great keyboard and great addons. Probably little benefit with dvorak on a phone, but keeps me consistent with my desktop. :-)

A Google User

Can not thank you enough for the dvorak layout. I always found it easier then typing on qwerty. And wished I had it on a phone. Works great on droid x

A Google User

A little tricky to get it started, but now it's good! It DOES work on the HTC Desire! DOWNLOAD ANYSOFTKEYBOARD! Thank you! A

A Google User

Very good, I just never used it.

A Google User

Agreed where the ',. keys should not be duplicated. Also, where is the programmers' layout? :-P

A Google User

Omg omg omg I just learned about dvorak when looking foras AnySoftKeyboard addons. BRILLIANT!!! No complaints about this addon.

A Google User

On Dvorak the backspace is too small I can hardly hit it since it is on the edge of the screen too. There is also duplicate keys for , . and '

A Google User

bah doesn't work on galaxy Y doesn't show up on keyboard menu -edited- Hmm... it just suddenly showed up after a few hours, no idea why. The keys are a bit too small but it's better than to have to relearn qwerty again.

A Google User

I'm a dvorak touch typist, & it's incredibly efficient for that purpose, but totally useless for single fingered typing. Maybe 1-hand dvorak instead?

Dylan O'Hare

Its cool but I like it overall but really wish I could switch the shift and backspace in colemak (bacspace would be better on the right)

A Google User

Doesn't open on htc G2.. :-(

A Google User

Great!! 5 stars if I could use swype with dvorak though. Otherwise an amazing app.

A Google User

Does not work on vibrant, cannot see it in the keyboard menu

A Google User

5 Stars. Many thanks!

A Google User

Ah, didn't know it had to be used with AnySoftKeyboard, works perfect now

Matt Sephton

No FITALY layout Where is it?

A Google User

Best DVORAK I could find

sei wOrNg

The app works great But typewriter layouts like qwerty dvorak colemak are horrible for touch tap and swipe

Californian Gamer Nick

Pile of trash... It didn't load anything at all

Christian Fortich

Good choice for dvorak typers in the market

A Google User

I love it ... its the best

A Google User

If you bothered to try you would have known that semicolon is a long press on colon...

A Google User

It's not obvious that you need to long press a field to switch input modes. Anyway, turns out dvorak with thumbs is hard to do. App is fine though.

A Google User

I could use a more accessible exclamation mark. I love exclamation marks!!!

A Google User

E and I keys don't work on colemak.

Richard Ward

Little things.. Look, generally I love it but I don't know if its a local problem or not but the predictive keeps auto changing fine words an that's real annoying, also, I'm using dvorak an learned real quick but the layout doesn't have an exclamation mark which is bizare an also really annoying considering the nature of dvorak in the first place. Which having typed with for a few weeks I now consider to need much more optimization than the origional scientist managed.

Linden Lonsdale

Didn't work Downloaded the app but there wasn't an option to open it.

Dan Fruzzetti

Would be great but Split keyboard mode puts B on the LEFT. Rofl.

Demetrios Vozella

It's not showing up anywhere. How do I get it to work? I can't find it.

Brian Scott

Can't find the app or how to change my keyboard to dvorak.

Travis Nutting

I can't find the pound symbol! Where is it? I need it as a password symbol. Checkmate.

TIM Barras

Unless someone can tell me how to use it on lg g3 running android,the app is not working

A Google User

No worky Just doesn't show up at all on Nextbook NX700QC 16G. Tried uninstall and reinstall. No joy. Shows up on app list but not keyboard list. Too bad, uninstalling.

Mackanzie Bowman

Disappointed Tried installing it twice. Never showed up.....ANYWHERE!!!!

Mathew Benham

Not compatible w/ Black Barry Priv

Prapti Giri

Hate I hate thing cause I can't open it

Sintera Maynard

Can't use it No matter what I try I can't get my keyboard to change to the dvorak format. The app doesn't show up as an option in the settings. Too bad, I really wanted to try it.

Varun Koli

Unable to open it After installing this doesn't Show up in the keyboard lists and so can't be used at all
