This simple app allows you to use a homescreen widget to quickly toggle the default keyboard from the enabled keyboards on your Android device.

It was mainly written because I need to keep switching between SwiftKey 3 and SwiftKey flow while I still get used to the latter.

Amazingly Small, Fortunately Fabulous!!!!! Take a look at the competition. They say they perform the same way yet they are 10 times the size & contain ads and don't offer the same ease of use. I have had this app on my phones for 2 years & use it daily. Different keyboards for different tasks, and this jem makes the switch a snap! It is one of the most useful apps you can install if you consistently utilize various keywords. Saves a lot of time & it works flawlessly. And there's no ads now!!! - What are you waiting for?

Good Works well for Chinese input, but not so great for English...specifically, space bar is glitzy with English keyboard...also, would be nice if it was a simple toggle button instead.

Charles Heckscher

A little thing that removes a big annoyance I need to switch to a different input to effectively use an external keyboard. It has been a nagging annoyance to go through all the taps to get there; this little widget just solves it and makes my day brighter.

Lynn Fotofoto

Does what it says I can quick switch between different language keyboards without navigating into Settings. Exactly what I needed.

Aaron Carter

Useful Turned a five step process (switching between swiftkey English keyboard and HTC sense pinyin Chinese keyboard) into a one step (two steps if you count going to the home screen) process. Does what it says.


Very useful. I use a keyboard that doesnt gather any data to order online stuff but another one for daily use.

Joshua Miller

Simple, works. I don't use it anymore since I can just use Tasker to do it, but for anyone who doesn't want to set it up with Tasker, it does the job perfectly.

Josue Galindo

Fantastic. Can you make it so that you can switch from notifications bar? That would help me. Thanks.

Hailey Brooks

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ I love it because I finally found out how to switch my keyboard. ♥♡♥♡♥♡★★★★★

Vipas Suktavornprasit

Thank you very much! I'm finding solution to use external keyboard AND can switch languages. It then requires another keyboard app that provide language-switch key setting but I still prefer default/built-in onscreen keyboard. This app is the right answer :) [Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+]

John Peter

Very good! I use it to switch to float and split and bluetooth and it works well on my tablet.

feroze ahamed

I got what i needed- language change option in notification area Detailed review after a week. Just downloaded.

Adedayo Marquis

It did the job, when I needed something to sort out the issue of the multiple keyboards on my phone. Thanks

Norman Taylor

Amen Thank You It is a great App, it works and is just what I needed.

Rudy Peña

Quick and easy for HTC one Hit the global key accidentally, and get changed to the native HTC crap app. No easy way to change back with the settings. This app takes all the work away.

Aizal Manan

Great It would be better if can switch between two keyboard without prompt to select which one. just click widget and switch keyboard silently

A Google User

Love this simple, clean, lightweight app. And no ads! Only wish the developer made it easy to send a donation. ?

Roee Zinaty

Nice app I wish I could set the notification to be apparent only when I try to type something...

Bob Hunter

Simple and Helpful -- Saves a lot of time if you switch keyboards like I do for various functions. There is a system notification for that but it only appears when you are in a text box. This app makes the option always available.


Peni5 Nagging me to rate.... Stop that. Happy 5 don't nag anymore. MKAY?

Burl House

Great little short cut Five star special, now that ads removed. Thanks!

Daniel Ng

Widget icon Could you change the widget icon to be the same as the application icon? Think it looks nicer than a big Q on the screen. Works great though! :)

Sam Curtis

Stick it Samsung Keyboard! The reason I need this is because of the pushy, lame Samsung Keyboard taking over on its own. Google keyboard is my preferred favorite, this allows me to switch back in a snap.

Washi Ahmed

GREAT APP Works really well! Its gives you to quickly switch your multi Keyboards, you don't have to go to setting.

Deb Mikaelsen

Nice This keyboard switch makes it so much easier to change between keyboards. I like it very much! Thank you devs for a free app that is so simple, not full of a bunch of junk we don't need!

Senapathy T

Very handy Very essential tool for me, as I keep switching between Google hand writing and other keyboards

Ramesh R

Why can't it quit automatically once the keyboard is selected?

Lanelle Hilling

Excellent This has already saved me time!

awie aku

Quick n Simple Very good.

Charles van Cleef

Does what it says. No muss, no fuss. This simple app does what it says and doesn't consume resources.

James Hall-Morrison

Very useful utility app I use several keyboard layouts as well as graffiti input and often start to enter something and find I have the wrong input system Active. This switcher provides an item on the notification drop-down allowing me to switch to any of my keyboards without exiting thr current app.

Kenzo M Bautista Bautista

:( Its not working when i'm playing clash of clans

Jake Cross

Good It would be nice if it were also possible to specify which keyboard to use automatically for which app. So as an example when I am editing a document I can choose the Minuum keyboard as I need the space.

Charles Hertz

Good to go Fixed an elusive Swype on a new phone. Thanks.

Elise Hanlon

noice simple, effective.. but would be good to have the option to just one-tap switch between two pre-defined keyboards

Andy Scarcliffe

Does what it says Does what it says. saves hassle. Great

John Vergel Zabanal

I like it but How can i use it?

Alexander Komissarov

Works as advertised While standard switch won't work with Play Store, this app does the trick

alex alex

the best thanks to devs

Артем Голубев

Great Would be great to see original app icon in notification instead of q-styled one.

Raul Taveras

Wonderful! This program is simple, but wonderful! After Google removed the persistent notification, there was no easy way yo change keyboards on phones using capacitative buttons. As someone who needs to type in Japanese, Mandarin, and Hebrew, apart from English, Spanish, and French, I can say I really appreciate this.

A Google User

Love this simple, clean, lightweight app. And no ads! Only wish the developer made it easy to send a donation. ?

Edward Harriger

Keyboard switch works! This is a really nifty app, I very much like it. Android smileys suck. My Samsung keyboard has a bunch of neat smileys and emoticons but the keyboard sucks. So, nice swyping on the Swype keyboard and nifty emoticons in the Samsung keyboard - I have it all, just pull down from the notification bar and the little switch menu pops up. Very easy to use. Good Job! All this on my Galaxy S4. ????

Dave Lawrence

Works like it says. Easy to switch keyboards

Ron Fortin

Great App I love my Note 5 but could not switch keyboards easy like I can my Note 10.1 tablet. This app completely solved my problem. No buggy Issues I have found either. Thank You! ?

David Gitlitz

Great, efficient and effective Works brilliantly; unfortunately Samsung keyboard is Swype-impaired, and Swype is short on emoji. This is the best solution without being resource intensive. I'd love a one-touch widget to quickly toggle between multiple keyboards, but perhaps one day that'll come. Great App!

Nihir Shah

Super Easy Very convenient and easy to handle app. Super easy and requires no great skill.


This is the greatest thing. It was extremely inconvenient to chat in different languages as the Google keyboard doesn't support certain ones So I would constantly be switching from Russian to the Japanese input to Chinese, and it was terrible. Thank you devs for this glorious app

Clive Cooper

Works perfectly... Really excellent app, makes life a lot easier, got so fed up going into the settings to switch keyboards, this has really solved a problem for me, well done.

Aldous Villegas

I wanted this so I could turn off my preferred keyboard to conserve battery because it had a slight drain. Strangely, this smaller app has a bigger drain. Uninstalled for now. It did function very well, just the drain was unacceptable.


Simple but effective I have a QWERTY keyboard attached to my tablet, but it doesn't do all the characters. This wee app enables me to switch between the on-screen keyboard and the physical one, quickly and easily, without losing track of what I'm typing. It doesn't need whistles and bells; it's incredibly useful in its own right.

ShiAnn Ford

Keyboard switch Helped me get out of swype very easy cuz I couldn't even use my settings to change the default but I also have a keyboard cover on my s6 edge plus

Mark West

Perfect tool 4 easy keyboard selection. Exactly what I needed to simplify keyboard changing. Perfect for gamepads that Use keyboards to interface! Great solution!

Martin Schuchert

Great app Great for switching keyboards fast. Useful for me as I need a German and English input device and I like different keyboards for different reasons.

Doug Bohrer

Ugly widget icon If the widget icon looked more like the app icon, this would be 5 stars. The widget icon is an ugly blue Q.

PatValDom B

Handy for my Smartwatch ZGPAX S8. I use it to switch between Google Voice Keyboard and Flit Keyboard Thanks!

Jordan Carr

Just what I needed Can quickly switch keyboards for some ssh work. Thanks a ton

david berry

Very helpful... I use a few different keyboards which have a variety of emoticons.


Love this simple, clean, lightweight app. And no ads! Only wish the developer made it easy to send a donation. ?

dust star

If only i can somehow have a shortcut key of my own to faster switch keyboard instead of using the notification. Will rate 5 stars if that feature get added

Rahul Desai

Good - does what's expected It is an good app and does the expected job... Only thing I don't like is the 'Go Pro' prompt that keeps on coming when you start the app..

Zoe Campbell

Great especially since I noticed You can put it in the toolbar menu

Tomer Sadot

Pretty amazing Does an excellent job. However a small tweak would perfect it. Enable setting a custom list of usable keyboards (the current list doesn't enable getting the Samsung keyboard off the it) and add a "one click" optional feature that changes the keyboard to the next one just by tapping on the widget/notification center app bar. That would eliminate the need to open a new window and choose the next keyboard hence cutting down 2 steps off the process.

William Macleod

Does what its suposed to Simple, efficient app to switch keyboards. No learning curve involved.

Atif Ahmad

Brilliant Just what I needed to switch between Samsung and Google keyboards as Google still not able to provide support for more languages

steven york

Best Option This appears to be the best keyboard-switching tool I've found. Would be nice if I could customize the widget appearance and allow it to work like an actual toggle switch. (ie. click once and it just jumps to the next keyboard. Then you get a little banner that says "Swiftkey active" etc.)

Rora Xyz

Brilliant Does the job well on my Galaxy Tab S! However, could the developers pliz make the widget look nicer! It's too tiny.

David Ruth

Just what I was looking for. I use a keyboard that I love but it lacks Emoji. With Quick Keyboard Switch I can smoothly switch between the two keyboards. Perfect. Thank you. ?

Lynsey Lou

Awesome One of those apps that you wondered how you lived without it before. Fabulous

Tony Slater

Great quick keyboard switching Having forgot where to find the keyboard settings in android (I've only been doing it five years), this app has come in very useful. It does the job and makes switching keyboard a breeze. Great little app that I will recommend to friends . Highly recommended !!

Christina Wooff

Nice This shop is great because I can easily change to whatever keyboard I want. It's very easy to use.

Patrick Aronson

Essential now that Google handwriting app is going mainstream Need to quickly switch between keyboard and handwriting in meetings etc. Then this is a must have.

Clicker Ticker

Works well! Needed to switch keyboards as there's no way of telling SwiftKey not to offer predictions on a particular app. Often that's a security risk. App would be perfect if the image changed depending on which keyboard was selected - e.g. Q1, Q2, Q3

RJ Fortin

damien ahuir

Thank you ! Finaly resolved My biggest headache on android devices. 5 stars !

Rachael L

Not that quick You still have to open up a separate app to switch keyboards. Faster than going to settings but not that fast.

Ken Ishii

Not 'quick' Get go-pro prompt forcing two actions at every switching. Hope someone make better app

David Slone

Fantastic work my Note5 While learning how to Note5 write, and filling the gap for apps not yet N5 aware -- this switcher and a script keyboard make my life wunderbar. Tap to get to type KB tap again to get to script KB.

ariel sagarnaga

very functional does have a few bugs. one setting I would like is a transparent notification icon

Leo Ros K

Great for multi keyboards I have three keyboard installed ✔ (+ stock keyboard). One of course is default but occasionally I need to shift because of the others keyboard character (f.e. emoji ? smiles ?) and this "Lovely small" app make that move just with one click. Shortcut (or widget) from home screen make this so easy. ♥♥♥ £๑νε тнïร Aρρ - 5 ★★★★★

David Lloyd

Great for people with disabilities No one keyboard can accommodate my disability, so this app (and my three keyboard apps ) is essential.

Steven Gagne

Well done. Does what it says perfectly. Lots of KB s allow a long press on Spacebar to switch- But NOT Samsung. This app allows me a better alternative. Perhaps intergrating Some sort of floating icon over / near / any open KB ? Thanks.

jason young

Great when used with glove box. Just wish the pop up box would disappear automatically after I've switched.

Duane Meyer

Ask for a rating immediately And you get 1 stars... It looks good but I haven't had a chance to use it very long.

Jimmy McNelis

Does what it says A lot of apps claim to do this and do that but its mostly BS trying to get you to get it and buy it . Well this app is NOT one of them. It simply does exactly what it says. Good app , I think its worth a try and a buy.

Legin Sreep

What's the point? I want to be able to switch keyboards while ime in-app its so annoying to have to exit what you're doing in order to change keyboards and this app doesn't solve that you still have to go to your home screen

Andy Mazur

So far so good Does what it says so far. Nice job.
