Does the Job Got a bluetooth keyboard made for Mac. No Home button (the hardware home). This allowed me to map a shortcut to do so. That said, this is a VERY non-intuitive interface. Needs dumbed WAY down. It took me almost an hour to figure out how to do what I wanted to, and even it wasn't quite exactly wanted. Still a good app though.

Phil Southwick

fixed repeating issue with BT Keyboard!!! It worked perfectly as described and has so many more features!!

Mohammad Ayoun

Just what I need It does what it says exactly

Dean Rogers

Galaxy Tab S 10.5 I was able to remove that stupid SHIFT+SPACEBAR combo that was driving me nuts and making "ENGLISH" pop up at the bottom of my screen instead of a space when I type fast.

Please add Tamil and Tamil Phonetic layouts I am looking for Tamil Language support for external keyboard. Please add Tamil language. I can help you with language script. Also please add Hindi, Sanskrit and other Indian languages.

Peter Ng

I liked it until i accidentally deleted all my customizations! I spent hours tweaking this app with my keyboard and I even got it to work very well with my samsung`s keyboard override. BUT... I accidentally pressed "Autodetect Layout" and just like that, all my customizations were wiped out! the custom 1 and 2 no longer held my customizations! I liked this app but I cannot accept any app that gives the user the ability to wipe data while not clearing labeling it or warning that it will wipe data. FYI, the autodetect layout button is the first button on the first screen

David Savery

Would be great if it worked. The usual problem of a bluetooth keyboard ignorantly locked to the US layout. Heard good things about this app but whatever key remapping I tried made no difference whatsoever. Unintuitive to use and the instructions online seem to be for a different version.

Sameer Ahmed

liked it it works some time only it detect my USB keyboard very sometime please some one can fix it so I may need some help

Aaron Roydhouse

Useful but not what I needed I was hoping this app would let me map one scan code + modifiers (especially Ctrl) to a scan code or sequence of scan codes. But it doesn't, it has text macros only. Still, this is a great tool for international keyboard layouts.

João Lacerda Costa

Just what I needed I had bought a bluetooth keyboard for my tablet and some of the symbols weren't working and this app solved my problem! Thank you :-)

Sam Horn

Using on my Nexus 7 I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to use an external keyboard. It makes everything much much simpler. I have my applications as shortcuts, such as the Play Store being Alt+p. Overall this is the most practical app I have when it comes to typing

Abi Jin

Doesn't support Chinese I don't hate it, but just have no use of it since it doesn't support language switch to Chinese.

Lord Childe

I urge everyone who uses this to install Keyboard Menu (root) - it will automate switching between soft/hard keyboards and do away with "choose browser" popup. The two apps combined make for a seamless transition from a soft keyboard to a Bluetooth keyboard (now with a UK layout thanks to this app).


excellent Works great as advised, must have for some foreign languages with keyboard layout not available in generic keyboard driver. Paid version worth every penny!

Dawid Mostert

Works well Great app with lots of customisation options

Ashley K

Good for testing This demo version is great for testing before buying the full version, which I now intend to do. That is what it is though, a demo. If you don't´t use the keyboard too much, it's probably fine, but as it adds (DEMO VERSION!) randomly in your texts, don't´t expect to be writing any professional texts easily. Seems worth the price for the full version though.

Toni Fasth

Programmers Lifesaver Works great for Finnish keyboard layout. Now I can code apps on my tablet with the keyboard layout I'm used to. Awesome job! Will purchase the Pro version.

Waleed Arafat

No mapping for locking the tablet

Kuz Kuz

Great! Worked great with my pressy like button

Gemma Weirs

Works well It works well. I found the key remapping complicated, even with the tutorial, but I found after switching to the GB keyboard layout, it wasn't necessary. One thing I find irritating is the lack of auto-capitalization, so if this was added, I'd buy the pro version. HTC One X+

Adina Hirschmann

"Caps (UP arrow)" & "fn" keys do not work ...with hardware (slider) keyboard on my LG Mach (ICS 4.04). How do I remap to allow them to function? Language selection and sounds work fine.

Oliver Bob Lagumen

I want to buy this (DEMO VERSION!) ASAP! Is there a way I can pay you via Western Union? That is the only way I can buy as I don't have a credit (DEMO VERSION!) card or any debit card. I'm very much happy (DEMO VERSION!) with the outcome of my bluetoth keyboard. Im using JB Android 4.1.2 kernel 4.3.0. I hope you can help me as this bluetooth keyboard would then be useless without your little software's BIG help. If you grant this, then I will give you 5 stars as (DEMO VERSION!) well.

Omar Diarbakerli

Great Just great, thanx

Hesham Ibraheem

Thanks This App Make Me Very Happy, I spent More Than Time Searching To Solve My Problem With The External Keyboard Layout And Finally I Found Your App .... Really I'm Very Happy .. Thanks a lot ... Many Thanks

Ivars Avens

Looks good Tried demo which works perfectly but can't buy because Google Wallet is a totally hopeless system. AndroidPit is strange. Sad!

Sam Davies

Perfect Transformer Prime. Works for the hardware keyboard and let's me use dvorak input. :> Will most likely buy... once I've finished learning dvorak. :I

Long Nguyen

Please support Vietnamese Telex input The app if perfect except for Viet Nam Input it's lack telex Input. The current input is VNI. Please add this support. Thank you very much.

Daniel Eguia

Great product = Will Purchace Works nicely with up to 16 programmable quick launch apps and 16 (DEMO VERSION!) programmable quick texts.

Tanakorn Padungkiatsakul

BEST App for USB-OTG keyboard I would give a 5 star if you would all change languages with Alt+Shift Alt+Space was very very weird for me.

Erik Allin

Brilliantly! Finally I found something, which could change my hardware keyboards layout! :D It's worth your time, and your money, if you decide to buy that :)

Kleopatra Tzima

good! this app is great! but..i installed the demo app because i wanted to see if can switch languages in my external keyboard. i select a key like alt (without involving the space botton) for switching the keyboard layout and still i cannot switch language...i always have english by default but i need greek to! plz help...

Tom Maran

Great Very good, worka with only some delay

Daniel Francis

Does exactly what I wanted! Stops the on screen keyboard from popping up when the bluetooth keyboard connects. Galaxy Note 10.1

A serious programme for the serious writer Writing with the Lenovo Bluetooth Multi-OS Keyboard W500 was a nightmare at the beginning because the BACKSPACE key (deleting from right to left) went wild and deleted the whole text. This can be avoided by exclusively using the DEL key (deleting from left to right). If this key goes wild the maximum damage will be the text to the right of the cursor. This programme successfully helps to overcome some of the glitches of an OS that is optimized for big business but not for the friends of input devices.

Avery H

Amazing!! Allows you to easily remap keys. I can now use my ds4 on my phone!!

Jeffrey DeMarie

Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 10.5... ...doesn't work at all with Samsung external keyboard. Looks like no one else with this tablet keyboard combination has reviewed this app.

Ruth K

Pro-version, Samsung Galaxy 10.1" tablet, Logitech Bluetooth Kybd "To use bluetooth keyboard enable Samsung QWERTY" then on-screen default kybd comes up overriding the BT kybd. If, perchance, a paragraph goes smoothly, I still canNOT switch languages. 2nd language is loaded onto device and available on Samsung QWERTY, but your configuration always returns to 'disable' for the keyboard switch. Doesn't work, period! Help me fix it and I'll give you a 5. For the few minutes it might work, it's great! :-(

Johnathan Le

Best Key-Mapping App Ever! I'd been frustratingly looking for key-mapping apps that could allow me to play my games on the keyboard until I came across your app. All I can say is: IT IS THE BEST APP EVER! I've never seen an app like this before. Keep up the good work, guys.

Thomas Rutter

This app was suggested as a fix for my Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 switching back to "Samsung Keyboard" input method every time the optional physical keyboard is attached or removed. I could not get this working.

Knoon Adroid

Not good enough Why does the Ctrl+L not function? I don't want to reach my hand to the tablet just for focusing on address bar. and I can'nt use Left+alternate to navigate browser

teh botol

wow im impressed for the first time use, shift+arrow key seems work like it should

Rothbaum Family

Great Works really well with cheap BT keyboard that didn't provide good Android support.

Ralchire R

I need help So far it is working great, but it wont allow me to send a message by hitting enter all it does is create a new line like that, i want it to send the message like if I'm texting or something by hitting ENTER. not having to tap send everytime I type in a message Also this app has a pop up sort of thing that is (DEMO VERSION!) it says that everytime you type about 200 characters

Goran Vidakovic

MesLab Works just fine app has no problems bugs or lags in its work. Everything works good. Thank you so much you deserve 5 stars :)

Allison Fox

Keyboard shortcuts don't work. Using an LG G2.


Installed this on my Android 5.1 TV box. Under apps there are two shown - EKH Settings and EKH Switch IME - both do exactly the same thing, which is to go to settings. What's the point? In web help pages, the windows/options shown look very little like what is shown on my screen. I supposedly made a couple of mapping changes with my keyboard - none worked. Layout could be much more user-friendly.


It works It works goooood. Hope there will be a root feature to edit key maps with ease without switching keyboard layouts.

Kate H

Thank you for this!
