BlackBerry Keyboard app for Android is updated with new features
The BlackBerry Keyboard app for Android has been updated to add some additional features. To make your device more secure, the app separates the words it learns from your personal use from the words it learns from your work use. In addition, the update will allow you to employ gestures like swipe to delete when using the Type by swiping feature.

The app also adds additional ways to quickly switch languages. You can set a key to be the dedicated language key, or you can use the space bar to switch. The app is available for those with a device running Android 5.0 or older.

BlackBerry's physical QWERTY keyboards have been long considered to be among the finest ever devised for smartphones. The one found on the BlackBerry Bold 9000 is arguably the best physical QWERTY of all time. With features like Flick typing, BlackBerry's virtual keyboard is becoming quite popular as well.

To get the update on the BlackBerry Keyboard for Android app, open up the Google Play Store, tap on the hamburger app on the top left. Click on My apps & games, scroll to the app, and click on "Update."

It's ONLY available on BlackBerry Android phones - Priv and two DTEK phones.

I've heard rumors that BlackBerry may force Cobalt to stop making these hacks available to the masses, as he's doing so without BlackBerry's permission.

He's stopped updating the available apps (Launcher, Keyboard, etc) since they are now on Google Play Store and open to all Android phones. He did really good work, but he knows when he should stop, I would think.

Cool. Knew he would have to stop sooner or later. He did do good work, but he was making the apps available without BlackBerry's consent, which is something that I'm personally against.

For a guy that's always calling someone a jock rider, you sure do ride the jock a whole lot. Must be that water from the lake of hypocrisy kicking in again.

Or maybe I just happen to agree with what he said. You're acting like you're the App Police. What happened, did they take your Grammar Cop badge?

Or maybe you're just agreeing with him because he said something against me. That sounds about right. And me choosing to be against pirated software doesn't make me for "app police", it means I have a differing opinion. Funny how you think that the "different opinion" thing only works when it's to your benefit.

Or maybe you're just being paranoid. Again. Differing opinion. That's funny coming from you of all people. The fact that you have been banned several times for your aggressive opinions is testament to itself. Perhaps the correct term for you would be the BlackBerry Police.

Lol, that's funny coming from the guy that has had all five of his Sauce accounts banned, as well as his JakeLee and faux accounts. It's also funny that you would talk about aggressive opinions when you've agressively attacked those that had a differing opinion than yours concerning Apple, as well as attacking me for anything positive I say about BlackBerry, or anything I say, in general. You're a straight up troll, and everyone knows it, including YOU. That's why darkk cut you off. That's why your iOS using brethren want no part of you. That's why people who just join PA call you a troll. That's why the correct term for you IS TROLL. And you can deflect and project all you want, but when everyone (and I do mean EVERYONE) on this site calls you a troll (EVEN the TROLLS), then it must be YOU and not everyone else. You can deny it and play the victim all you want, but deep down inside, you know it's the truth, and you can't run from the truth.

Lol, he's rambling incoherently again. Must have really hit him with a truth bomb. Get over it, alpha. It's funny how you keep hopping on the darkk thing. I understand you're terrified of him seeing how you've never tried to pick a fight with him.

Lmao! Whenever you say that, you really mean that I touched a nerve deep in your gut. Get over it, JakeLee. It's funny how the darkk thing has you so bumburned since he kicked you to the curb. You were literally BEGGING for his forgiveness. Lmao!

66. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You didn't touch anything, alpha. It's funny how you continue to harp on about me begging darkk for forgiveness. That is just you spinning sh_t around because deep down, you're afraid of darkk. Amazing how you've never engaged him in an argument. He doesn't see you for what I see you as, a pompous, asinine twit who aggressively attacks anyone who says anything about blackberry.

If I didn't "touch anything", you wouldn't keep explaining yourself, JakeLee. And it's YOU that's so afraid of darkk, that's why you were begging for his forgiveness like a little btch. He sees you for what you are, which is everything you're now trying to project onto me: a pompous, asinine, twit (and idiot, I must add) who agressovely attacks anyone that says anything about BlackBerry, and a troll of the highest caliber.

80. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Oh look, he's regurgitating my response. And he says I copied him. Get over it. I wasn't begging darkk for his forgiveness. He was upset because I kept making fun of Samsung and their exploding Note 7. You're the one who is afraid of him because you have never picked a fight with him. You talk tough, but in the end, you're just a little btch who is all bark but no bite whatsoever.

Lmao! Nerve touched, deep in your gut! You're so embarrassed and seething with anger right now, because darrk kicked your @$$ to the curb and I'm putting it out there. You're rambling on now. Lmao! I don't "pick fights" with levelheaded individuals, I put trolls like you in their place. You love to troll so much, and then like to cry and play the victim role when you get called out on it, just like you did with darkk. You're nothing but a little baby-btch@$$ who likes to hide behind mommy and daddy's computer and spew BS.

100. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Lol who the fck cares? You keep harping over that like the troll that you are. Get over it, you don't have the balls to pick a fight with darkk. Just stfu. I see you're stealing lines from my playbook. You don't pick a fight with darkk because you're afraid of him, like I said before. You fear darkk. At least I wasn't afraid of standing my ground with Crispin, who btw is far more respectable than your punk @$$ is. You're a BlackBerry troll who give BlackBerry fans a bad name.

Lmao! Nerve still touched, deep in your gut. And you do care, that's why you're getting so defensive over it. You're like a lost pup without his master since darkk kicked you to the curb after he realized what an ignorant troll you are. And let's face it, you're definitely and ignorant troll. That's why even your iOS brethren want no part of your BS, because you're and Apple troll that gives other Apple device users a bad name. The only playbook you have is the playbook of trolling, and even Crispin knows it, that's why he still refers to you as a troll, all while you suck up to him. That's truly pathetic. And what's even more pathetic, is that everyone on this site knows what a troll and btch@$$ you really are, even you, and there's nothing that you can say to change that.

108. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Blah blah blah, bullsh--t bullsh--t. That's all that is up above is pure bullsh--t. You are clearly pathetic. It amazes me how much of a suck up you are up above. Get over it. You're still ranting on about the darkk thing when it clearly isn't the case. I'm not going to continue wasting my time with you about it. You're afraid of darkk and it shows.

Lmao! Nerve touched, deep in your gut! So much so, that you're rambling on because you're seething with anger because I embarrassed you by posting the truth about darkk kicking you to curb and you begging him to be your buddy, only to get that door slammed in your pimply face. You're a pathetic, lonely troll now, and everyone knows it.

If you were a software developer you might feel differently about piracy. I'm more with meanest on this topic, but I didn't know that having an opinion on the matter makes someone the "app police"...
