A non visible soft keyboard (Input Method) intended to be used with hardware Bluetooth and USB keyboards. It automatically brings up the Input Method dialog when Bluetooth keyboard connects or disconnects (on some devices this can also be made to work with USB keyboards). It supports a lot of different keylayouts also provides a lot of configuration options.

This app does NOT require a rooted device and there is a DEMO version available if you want to try it out before buying.


* International keyboard layouts.
* Up to 16 application shortcuts can be added (for example start Google Maps with Alt+M etc.)
* Up to 16 text strings can be add (for example insert your email address with Alt+E etc.)
* Remaps the Escape key to BACK (can be turned off)
* Allows you to control which characters should be treated as combining characters.
* A "null" Soft Keyboard to use with hardware keyboards (Bluetooth & USB).
* Automatically brings up Input Method selection dialog when Bluetooth keyboard connects or disconnects (Android 2.3+).
* Automatic detection can also work with USB keyboards on some platforms (experimental) (Android 2.3+)
* App that brings up Input Method selection (for easy access)
* Switch between up to three layouts of your choice using a key or key combination.
* Can choose keymap automatically based on language setting in your device.
* Blocks long-press-popups on Android 2.x.
* Change the key repeat delay and rate.
* Layouts can be modified and two user defined custom layouts can be configured.
* ConnectBot aware (TAB and CTRL codes)

Currently supported keyboard layouts
* Arabic (101, 102 & 102 AZERTY)
* Armenian (Eastern, Western & Phonetic)
* Austrian

* Bosnian & Herzegovian
* Bulgarian (Phonetic, Phonetic traditional & Typewriter)
* Canadian (French & Multilingual)

All layouts are based on standard USB Keyboard layouts. Bluetooth keyboards sometimes do not follow the standard completely but it is possible to manually customize mappings.

What it does NOT
* It won't fix your BT or USB connected keyboard if it wasn't working in the first place.
* It does not automatically switch Input Method. It only shows the dialog and you will have to choose Input Method manually. This is an intentional limitation built into Android by Google. No user installed app is allowed to change IME without user interaction.

Should be part of Android. This functionality ought to be part of Android proper. One more star if it sets the IME back to my chosen default when the bluetooth keyboard is disconnected, without requiring me to checkbox one. I'd also like it to automatically chose this one when the keyboard is connected so I don't have to touch the checkbox at all. I've used the "tiny password" thing that lets you enter passwords via an input method. When it's done, it automatically sets the IME back to your chosen default. I've since switched to using Keypass2Android. I wonder if IME's can be made to be stackable, so that the key mappings created using this can be passed through to Keypass2? But the problem with that might be the potential for someone snooping the keystrokes of the ultra-paranoid...

Pieter-Jan Sterk

Great This should be standard. Great for combining a keyboard and mouse combo.

Jamie G.

Thank you! It's absolutely absurd that I had to get an app just to prevent the crappy Samsung soft keyboard from harassing me. That being said, thank you for this app. It works perfectly what a relief!

Matthew Perlman

Key bind Android function keys. Let's you Key bind Android function keys. Also lets you key bind to blue mouse extra buttons.

Nick Wright

Great! I now have a customised keyboard for my phone and tablet. Thanks!

Bruce MacPherson

A lifesaver to get past Samsung's boneheaded sabotage of external keyboard input methods.

Peter Gaunt

I have only one issue with this app and that's that so far as I can tell it doesn't allow you to define new 'dead keys' for accents. I'd like to create a mapping like a Mac keyboard and can do that in all respects except dead keys. Other than that this is an excellent app.

David Chandler

Great for bluetooth keyboard I use this app to create 16 app launcher shortcuts for my bluetooth keyboard (for example I created Alt+D to launch Google Drive) . It's a bit weird (first create an application shortcut with a name like A0, then go to custom keyboard mapping, add mapping, type the letter WITHOUT A MODIFIER key and put A0 in the Alt field. Then Alt+letter will launch app A0. It has lots of other useful features, too. Love it!

brad clawsie

I solved Ctrl-mappings for only $1.99 Using an external keyboard with ConnectBot wasn't so much fun when Ctrl wasn't mapping...this program fixed that! thanks!

Thomas Milne

Almost there. Would love to see 3 things. Tasker task import to keep application install list short and a predicted word overlay while typing to help with my bad spelling. And lastly simple key combo customization. This application is wonderful and would most anyones needs but I am the type that pushes for a little more.

Piotr Bagniewski

Great help In a combination with Bluetooth keyboard the possibilities are endless. I can now start apps with just one click away from the phone/tablet/mini PC. Thanks.


Great help Thanks for adding Urdu language, and very quick response to the request. This is the only app supporting Urdu.... One question i want to ask. What if i want to use emojis with external keyboard attached?

Eduardo Patricio

Amazing! The definitive app you use external keyboards. Specially if you need to use accents/key combinations/dead keys. Thank you!!


simple fix to a very irritating problem could not get on screen keyboard to disable when bluetooth keyboard connected.tried all the "usual" fixes. nothing worked. this little app worth every cent!

Radoslav Tsvetkof

Very good The App has more layouts, then the traditional Android OS for hardware keyboard. For the person who uses other languages or special layout, this app is the proper solution. It has also many setting possibilities (many you might at all not use at all) And last ;-) for sure it is super to have kb settings easy and immediately accessible.

Jeffrey Taylor

RTFM & it works! Hi spent 2 days trying to use the demo version but couldn't get anything to work. Finally as a last ditch effort I read the Tutorial on the website. Tutorial 1 was where I was going wrong. I followed it exactly and things started to work. Now my ancient ThinkOutside XTBT 01 keyboard works almost perfectly on my Galaxy tab S. I had to remap quite a few keys and the Green function key only works for Home, Pg up, Pg Down & End. The other symbol type keys I've mapped to Blue Fn + Shift. Also got most of the Blue Fn app keys mapped so I can open Chrome, Handcom Word & Excel etc etc from the keyboard. Also my "programs" key goes to the Desktop a real bonus. The only thing I can't map which I want is my Num Lock. All in all worth the price & saves the cost of a new Keyboard for the small amount I'll be using it. Now working with the Samsung mouse and the Keyboard is like having a laptop :-) Only 4* as its quite complicated to set up. Oh and if you have a Samsung device read Tutorial 6, it does work.

Angel Mom

Saved my day!!! All of sudden, my keyboard showed up on a screen while using the Bluetooth keyboard and was not changed into another language. I tried so many researches and apps and any method didn't work at all. Then I came cross this app....amazing!!! It solved two problems at once. Thanks a lot!!!!??

Minty Autumn Ede

Worth every penny! This has allowed me to use my Bluetooth keyboard on both my phone and my tablet. Well done on a brilliant app, I can't recommend this enough :0)

Chris Dart

Very good app. This app. Is so good I forgot I had it! Some people were complaining about bluetooth keyboard connection problems and I did not see their problem till I realized EKH must be solving the problem. It needs setting up properly! !

Don Julio

Solved EVERY PROBLEM!!! My Samsung Galaxy Tab's Keyboard was AWFUL! It would keep repeating keys I pressed and half of them lost their functionality after certain updates! This solved it all, keeping the darn virtual keyboard off the screen, letting me disable repeating keypresses, and letting me not only re-map dead keys on my keyboard but also letting me re-map keys for game emulators! Simply amazing thank you bud!

Pol Mata

extremely good. some issues like control+backspace doesn't seem to work too well. at least when in quickoffice. even so, this app is a MUST for catalan and spanish people who use KitKat 4.4.4 and a hardware keyboard. google seems to have messed up the spanish keyboard layout with the latest update. again, the app is beyond great.

Sharon Arad

looks good not too intuitive to set up multiple languages (switching between languages using alt+shift like in windows is not possible), and requires more security privileges than seems reasonable. All in all works fine.

Nicolás García

I only wanted zoom in out shortcut I arrived on this app as it was recommended through a random website. It looked good as I was looking for a solution to zooming inside the documents without touching the tablet screen. To my disapointment it doesn't offer that option and well it does what it says but not what I wanted. I see no real added value to the keyboard customization. In the end zooming was as simple as ctrl + i / ctrl + o and this is a native keyboard android command.

William Chamberlain

Time I gave my two cents. I've been using this app for a a while, at first to prevent the keyboard lagging and spamming characters (char-repeat) and I have since been able to remap and configure my keyboard anyway I see fit. This app is very innovative, I use it for my tablet and phone, and I recommend it to anyone looking for an app to manage their bluetooth keyboard. Keep up the great work!

Kathryn Williams

Very useful app I have had a problem with my external keyboard being stuck on US layout, and always turning opening quotes into umlauts. Now, I can use my tablet and keyboard "properly", without having to change my typing style. || Also, you support ALL diacritics on ALL letters, meaning that I can use my tablet for languages that don't fit the "standard" mould. This is great. || The only thing I haven't figured out yet, is how to get umlauts using a different key combination. Then again, I don't use them much, so it's not a big deal. || Brilliant app, easy to use and well worth the price. Thank you.

Toni Fasth

Programmers lifesaver Until now I've had trouble with special keys/characters when using external keyboard. Finding this package was a 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!

Martin Stepanek

Downgraded Two issues. The fact you can't set it to automatically change to EKH when bluetooth connects is annoying. The biggest issue is that after serveral uses the stupid thing forgets when its connected and when its not. I use a logitech k810 which is able to connect to 3 devices. If I clear the settings the first dozen or so times you connect or disconnect it gets it right and the appropiate message appears. Then suddenly, it doesn't matter anymore if you are connecting or disconnecting. It pops up a message that says keyboard connected and even does it sometimes when the bluetooth mouse connects!! RRRRR! So you wipe out the training memory and reset it fine for a while then ...buggered again. If it wasn't for this seriously annoying issue, this app would get 5 stars. It otherwise is extremely useful and handy.

Richard Scott

Works with Asus Transformer TF701T physical keyboard! This app has saved me from downgrading from KK back to JB. This now means that shift+2 does not show @ as it used to, and now works with my UK setup. It's a fantastic app, but annoying that Android KK does not to work correctly out the box.

Trebor Rude

Makes My Keyboard Dock More Useful This app, along with a little judicious hacking of /system/usr/keylayout/asusdec.kl (root required) allows me to remap the browser key on my ASUS Transformer keyboard dock so that it launches Dolphin instead of the stock browser (great, since the stock browser isn't event installed on this ROM). It also let me fix a problem with the volume keys on this CM11-based ROM.

Sam Liddicott

Great - especially with locale like tasker, locale can also be used with the secure settings plugin to change the input method on detach/attach of the bluetooth keboard

Iwan Lemmens

Perfect Couldn't change the keyboard layout on my Galaxy Tab without changing the language. This app does exactly what is expected of it.

Thomas Luzat

English US International This allows me to use my german BT keyboard in English US International mode on a Note 3 where other non-root solutions have failed so far.

Garret Kelly

Fantastic Software If you have a Bluetooth keyboard then you need this software. It does exactly what it says on the box.

Richard simpkin

got it working after some hassle. great app but could be more user friendly. The menu style while functional is not nice to use visually speaking. Tutorial should be an optional first launch setup process within the app to avoid confusion.

Ian Shaw

Powerful when setup right Worth putting 10 minutes into fiddling with all these settings, as my Bluetooth keyboard now works exactly as I want, making the tablet a pleasure to use.

A Google User

Ctrl Meta Splat Bang!!!! I can't imagine using a hardware keyboard on my many Android devices without this app. It's tremendously useful for adding "quick text" words and phrases, as well as for remapping keys. For example, it made my Elecom folding keyboard usable by remapping DEL to BS. l also made custom bindings for CAPS->CTRL, CMD->META, UP->SHIFT, etc. It is very easy to use and does exactly what you'd want it to. I've been a daily user of this app since 2012.

Markus Hinterthan

almost self-explaining app.. ..that helps a lot remapping bluetooth keyboards and creating app shortcuts. It would be cool to have a possibility of saving the mapping though. On my think outside keyboard the num lock doesn't work. Otherwise this app is great and once set up thumbs up!

Fernando Camargo

US international layout doesn't acute accent For example, can't accent: 'a, 'e, 'o, the accent never go up to the letter. The US international layout works on IPAD for my keyboard

Mathieu Dupel

i cant get the accent when im writing in french like on pc its the key ?/ but i cant change it im using samsung tab s

Пользователь Google

ok please add caps lock as layout toggle

Пользователь Google

Excelent ! Very good. Tried with ACER ICONIA TAB A500 and SAMSUNG Galaxy GT-P6210. Tried with Bluetooth keyboard Genius LuxePad Pro and LuxePad 9100 successfully.

Пользователь Google

Awesome Genius luxepad 9100 (Bluetooth) - works just great, thanks for the app!

Пользователь Google

near perfect great, but "app switch" remapping variant seems does nothing on honeycomb.

Пользователь Google

It is great! Thank you for the third layout! You're the best! :)

Piotr Lipski

Excellent Hats off. I have been using it for over a year now, with three different Android devices, and it has been working flawlessly. What it cannot do though is to set the input method automatically on (dis-)connection instead of popping up the settings dialog but this is an OS-enforced limitation so not much we can do here, can we? Five stars anyway.

Ion Popescu

The best solution if you want to write in your nativ language, using a hardware keyboard. Many thanks to the developer.

Bart van Dyk

Glad to see it works for other people. It does nothing for me. I downloaded it to stop character repeating with a bluetooth keyboard. No matter what setting, it happily repeats most letters and punctuations.

Mirko Jurisits

Works perfectly. The only app I found which allows me to write Hungarian characters on my Logitech K480 bluetooth keyboard to a Motorola Xoom2. Wide range of compatibility is welcome. Well done! I also like the execution of the Demo version - you are not stressed by the 15-minute refund limit.

Vlad Frolov

Excellent! Works as described. Little tip: if you wish to use CapsLock as a layout switcher, follow these steps: 1) Choose your first layout (e.g. English); 2) Customize it (advanced settings) as Custom1 by adding CapsLock overwrite to, for example, F12; 3) Choose your second layout and do the same as in (2) but save it as Custom2; 4) Select 'Override special keys'; 5) Change Layout-switch key for CapsLock (58 code); 6) Choose Custom2 as a second layout 7) Choose Custom1 as a primary layout

Gail Williamson-Dauphinais

Great This is a fantastic app to control my bluetooth keyboard.

Jack Zambrano

Essential for using external keyboards

Mike Pijl

Good app but it knocked out something Good app but it took away a feature that's very important during the on-screen keyboard operation: the suggestions list is gone even after I have returned to the on-screen keyboard. restarting apps doesn't help; probably need to reboot.

Andreas Birgerson

swipe action would love to be able to map a key to actions such as swipe left right down up so that i v can read my e-books without touching the screen every time i want to turn the page

andre uebe

Almost perfect I am using an externa flexible keyboard with brazilian layout in my Note 4. The right-shift key (N. 54) is not working properly since is configured as "? / º" and there is no "Shift" option available at manual mapping. Please, make it available.

Jim Pratt

Needed with ASUS Zenpad Z580C Using a BT mouse and Keyboard caused the keys to endlessly repeat. Installing EKH Pro eliminated the issue by turing off key repeat. Wonderful app !


for me - must have Now I can use wide variety of keyboard layouts. It's very important because my language isn't supported by Google (Polish programmer's layout).

Enkhbat Dangaasuren

Excellent software! Just created Mongolian cyrillic custom layout and tested with Samsung Galaxy Pro bluetooth keyboard. Works very well. Thank you!

Barbafant Fant

Almost perfect Wide language layout support, advanced support for combining keys for specific chars. Only miss possibility to make one single modifying key (i.e. shift, alt, fn) 'stick', and also have this notified with symbol in notification area at screens top. In my case (I have a MS Wedge, excellent BT keyboard) I want to 'stick' the fn-key, or actually to have it 'reversed stuck': always on, press+hold fn-key turns it off. Almost feel bad for subtracting 1 star for that, but Kaizen principle..

Idan Barir

Simply perfect! Does all I expected it to do and more. This app actually allowed me to start use my Android Phone as a working tool (even word processing).

David Green

Boom! Sorted out layout issues with Spanish layout Rii mini i8+ keyboard and MXQ android tv box (which only supported English & Chinese). All ALT characters mapped perfectly (@ € # etc.). Had tried a different app initially which didn't support ALT characters. This one works.

Paul Hatzigiannis

used to work - does not let me save the language swapping preferences

José Fco. Di Stefano G.

The best I have tried This app really understands my external keyboard

Waterboy AP

So cool So cool switching layout that what I need.

Lizz Gilmore

Remapped my volume controls and my Bluetooth gamepad! I spent so long searching for a way to remap the volume buttons on my phone - EKH's developers should advertise this functionality! I only happened to stumble upon the functionality when I installed EHK to help me reprogram the tiny keyfob-sized Bluetooth gamepad/controller I bought on Amazon. EHK let me remap the gamepad buttons and my volume controls and I'm ecstatic! Since I use this with a gamepad, I wish I could still display the on-screen default keyboard while EHK is set as the primary input.

Bob P Wilson

Great I've used it on all my tablets with external bluetooth keyboards, for years. It works great, as expected, and zero problems. I never have a probelm with my device recognizing and selecting my keyboard default. Have fun.

Bee Jay

This is something I've been looking for for a long, long time! Finally I can make my keyboard work the way I want it to, use all the diacritics and special characters I need, and assign them to whichever keys I'd like. Great work!

Mark DiGirolamo

Fixed my Bluetooth keyboard disconnecting Samsung Note 10.1 2014 tablet would constantly disconnect the Bluetooth keyboard, was so frustrating. I see alot of people have this same problem. On a whim I installed this app and IT HAS RESOLVED this bluetooth disconnect issue. I am not sure it was supposed to resolve it but it has and so thankful now. I have used my keyboard for two weeks straight and not lost the bluetooth connection one time. Thank you so much.

D Wade

Made my tablet worth using Forever, I struggled with using my on-screen keyboard, so I finally upgraded to a keyboard. Then, issues with longpressing back spacing, that would clear entire lines, presented yet another struggle. I caved in and got this, and it's an immediate and immense improvement!

Peter Conteos

Super great app! Truly one of a that the quick launch settings is gone from lollipop (that allowed to customize the "search +" key assignments)it is the only app that I've found that allows the creation of USB hid hotkeys to launch apps. One feature request however...I'm using a programmable xkeys USB keypad for media control and launching apps(in car)....would be cool if EKHP would have an option to bring up a simple soft keyboard for doing searches...etc

Emin Yılmaz

No Japanese! Only 3 layouts at once! Without Japanese and without being able to use 4 or 5 layouts at the siame time for me the app is half as useful. For fairness sake I rate 2. The app deserves more stars otherwise. If Japanese is added and if I could add two more keyboards, at least one more, I would be very happy.

Gorka G LLona

Best of its class It works as promised. This kind of apps are nbot easy to develop. I probed before other (free) apput was laggy and almost unusable, as I use my ASUS Memo Pad 7 tablet for writing. But after changing I'm really happy. I can also emulate a typewritter with the keys click sound.

Drew Mills

Incredible! I am using my Anker keyboard with this little app/utility installed. I can now use my Dvorak layout just like before. It absolutely rocks! I am so much faster with an external keyboard than with an on-screen keyboard. You do need to be comfortable switch Input Methods in your system settings back-and-forth since you won't have the keyboard always around. But if you can do that, this is absolutely golden! i am so pleased to have found this. Kudos to the dev on this one! Pay the $2, it's an easy call.

Jason Mc

Awesome Setting up brightness, volumes etc is great. App shortcuts make for efficient use. I could even assign "Home" to a button on my bluetooth mouse.

David Schmitt

Love it No more keyboard popup hogging the screen, and I can type dvorak with a qwerty keyboard - everything I wanted from it.

Kyle Witten

Absolutely love it - I type in DVORAK, but Samsung doesn't support anything but QWERTY. This solves the problem when using my bluetooth keyboard. One thing that in lacking that would make this a 5 star app - the switcher program runs on keyboard connect, but not on disconnect. The Demo version actually did a better job than the Pro version does.

Android Shepherd

Does localization, not remapping Unable to get both left alt not as altgr and caps remapped as control. Need to edit .kl files to remap control and ekh for local alt+letter characters. With control working would be 5 stars

Robert Madeira

Still doesnt work. This program still doesnt fully permanently disable the Samsung keyboard for more than a few seconds.

Piotr Rachwał

The best of its kind. Works out of the box, exactly as advertised.

Lauri Echevarria

Great app...Just one small detail. Is it possible to get a complete layout of where all they keys go. Im using it for Finnish and now I cant find the apostrophe unless I hit the the keyboard key on my old samsung galaxy tab 10.1. It would be great, but for now it works out for me...

Peg Ritchie

WOW! Every time I get a new device (toy) I am amazed at just how much it can do, but EKH blows even that way out of the water. My Perixx 805L folding keyboard already does 3 times what it did a week ago, and my mind spins with more ideas. Thanks for the great work, Apedroid.

Stephen B

Works great with my USB keyboard. This finally let me set some of the toggles I want on my tablet. It still runs perfect using a 4 port hub with a mouse, 128GB usb. Thank you for makibg my life easier

Kyle Graehl

It works Was able to switch to Dvorak on my bluetooth keyboard.

Andreas Doebler

just great and extrememely customizable, Does anybody know how to customize the mouse buttons (1 Finger, 2 Finger ...)?

Tomáš Janoušek

The UI could use some improvements — back key usually takes me out of settings into the input method switcher instead of just going back one layer of menu, configuring the second custom layout is very non-intuitive. But otherwise it seems to work really well.

Cemal Talas

Excellent :) Excellent, Using Turkish Q with personal modifications over 2 years now :)

Stefan Edelmann

Works great Fixed my problem with Note 10.1 2014 Edition and my external keyboard as promised. Well worth the price

Jacob Hallén

works perfectly. Bought new tablet. This was the third app I installed from a titanium backup of my old tablet. As expected, it just worked. Tack apedroid!

Darren Hall

Works a treat on my Sony Bravia Android TV. I can now launch side loaded apps via keyboard shortcuts instead of having to launch them from within several menus. Recommended.

Chettawan Senapant

Help me on Remix OS Remix OS 2.0 has no Thai Keyboard Layout in selection. Using Google Keyboard or other didn't help but this External Keyboard Helper did! I can even change Layout using Grave Accent very easy.

Adrian Nava

Nice little App. This is for when you have a Bluetooth keyboard and dont need the on screen keyboard.

Emre Şekeroğlu

Totally works Turkish layout helped me alot

Jeffrey Stingerstein

waste of money

Bob P Wilson

Great - BEST External BT Keyboard Integration App! I've used it on all my tablets with external bluetooth keyboards, for years. It works great, as expected, and zero problems. I never have a probelm with my device recognizing and selecting my keyboard default. Updated May 2016 - This is still the ABSOLUTE BEST External Keyboard Manager. I use this with my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (using an external Bluetooth Keyboard) and this app allows an almost seamless recognition and integration of my BT keyboard. There are many settings available to help tweak any problems, and with the ongoing app upgrades, this app continues to RANK a 5.0. Thanks to all developers for keeping this app current with OS changes, YOU ROCK!

Chaofeng Wang

Works It works like a charm. Happy that I can use Google Input Method together with bluetooth keyboard now!

David Colgan

Let's me use my complicated keyboard mappings on Android! This app is awesome - it let me do such crazy things as switch ctrl and alt, switch caps lock and backspace, and use Dvorak. Totally and completely worth the $2 I paid. I would have probably paid more. Cheers!

Glen Flanagan

perfect assistance to bluetooth keyboards I bought a bluetooth keyboard because I often need to input faster than I can "text". After I upgraded my device (gt-p3113) to the last supported version of android, languages could no longer be changed when using an external keyboard, and I type in multiple languages that require specialized characters. On the PC this was handled easily, but I am more often away from the computer and thus my need for the keyboard for the android. My daughter has a keyboard that has a specific process for switching languages that works fine on her device, but didn't work when I tried it on mine. I tried several apps,all claiming to be able to switch the keyboard layout, but none of them worked. Until now. THIS app works with every single input language that android offers, AND it also allows me to map the 3 most commonly used languages to a specific hotkey or combination. While it would be nice to have "suggestions" when typing, any pop up to do this would get in the way of my typing. The apps always alert me to "typos", with the option to tap for suggestions, which is more than sufficient. Thank you for this app

David Radkowski

Wow! This is the best app I've installed so far! Highly recommended!! On my external PixelC keyboard fixed instantly ongoing issues with special keys in apps like Citrix and terminal emulators: no more pain with the special characters!!! Mate, hats off! Cheers

Zaid Shuqfa

Kindly, Help! I'm using Tayogo BT keyboard with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 The BT keboard is designed for IPAD 2 so it has somme issues with the key placement. though I got the pro version, the isues presist as follows: ** 1) instead of [Esc] key there is the [Home] key where I cannot remap to [Back] because I cannot get its scan code. Whenever I try to get its code, the program goes to the background as the [Home] key is pressed. ** 2) there is an [Eject] key to eject or dismount the attached storage media, but it acts like power key. Also, remapping is impossible where it switches the tablet screen off whernever is pressed to scan its code. ** 3) whenever I type a capital letter by holding [Shift] and the letter then pressing [Space] i.e. when typing "I ", the keboard layout is changed. I need to keep this facility where I need two keboard layouts, but I need to make it slower in response. ** 4) The keboard disconneccts periodically whenever it is left idle so when Istarted to type again the dialouge that enforces to reassign samsung soft keboard as a default one appears and I need to select the EKH pro again. Kindly, May you provide an email for support?

mania mim

Amazing Amazing app, i tried almost 10 app to write persian with my new external keyboard connected to my samsung galaxy tablet and this is the only app that worked. Throughly worth to pay. Thanks

Hallur Örn Guðjónsson

Worked like a charm. Now my Swedish Samsung SmartTV keyboard (VG-KBD1500) works with my Nvidia Shield in my native Icelandic language.

M 5tephens

Makes using a bluetooth keyboard a pleasure. Especially appreciated are the customised keyboard options. Wonderful app.

Wilton Polesca

good the best. all keys it's ok
