BlackBerry Keyboard app receives an update
So what changes are included with the update? Glad you asked. You can now use the slideboard even when Type by Swiping is enabled. The slideboard allows you to swipe left or right on the keyboard to reveal a couple of panels. Swipe to one side to see quick phrases that you can use while texting; swiping to the other side reveals a numbers pad and some widely used characters. In addition, the flick typing feature that allows users to flick up suggested words and have them included in their messages, can now be used by those typing in Chinese (Pinyin) or Japanese. Lastly, the update includes the usual stability fixes and minor enhancements.
If you don't have the BlackBerry Keyboard app installed on your Android powered BlackBerry handset, you can grab it by clicking on the sourcelink below. The updated app is version 188.8.131.5249.
