Minuum Keyboard Hands-on

Comments

    Is this ever going to be just pubically accessible through the google play store? Without any of this email/google group stuff? Wouldn’t mind trying it out.

      if I do recall the beta will only be open to the kikstarter supporters but will be publicly available afterwards.

    • Plazmic Flame

      Right now it’s only available to those who supported their campaign on Indiegogo. They never had a Kickstarter campaign. When it comes out of beta and is available to the public, it will be available in the Google Play Store like any normal app.

      That is, of course, the intent. It’s an early beta (although VERY usable) right now. I’m impressed, despite having enough space on my phone to work with. It’s my go-to keyboard when I am working in landscape mode, and when I want to be able to see more than just the text I am entering in SMS.

      Nice thanks for the responses guys, just hearing about this keyboard. Looks cool.

    They keyboard seems pretty interesting and I’ll buy it when it comes out. Right now I switch between Swift Key and Swype depending on my mood. Both have their faults and annoyances so when I get annoyed with one, I switch the another.

    I’d love to give Minuum a try once it is released to the public. I’m a huge fan of options and I have no problems paying for another keyboard. 🙂

      I switch between SwiftKey and Google depending on (screen) orientation. I’m interested in Minuum, but it has a lot to live up to.

    It works well… usually.

    It failed to even load when trying to type in this comment text area (not entirely surprising given how unfriendly MobileSyrup is on mobile.) It’s also very slow and tedious when typing URLs because autocorrect doesn’t guess URLs and it’s impossible to actually be accurate without deliberately selecting each letter one… at… a… time.

    It is still beta though, and I’m quite impressed most of the time.

    It’s not to bad actually. It will take a while to get used to the periods. Still though I think this will be very succussful!

      gender change can be tough.

      Took me a while. Then real lols.

  • Zed

    Missed the kickstarter, looking forward to when this is available 🙂

      you Can Already Find The Apk On File Sharing Sites.

    • Zed

      true that. I tried it, but it seems a bit hard to get used to it. I suppose that will change over time. Besides that it works great on my One

      And the Android pirating problem continues…

      There really needs to be a way to lock down an app if it hasn’t been paid for.

    • Zed

      point me to a place where I can buy it from, please!

    • Plazmic Flame

      Right now it’s only available to those who supported their campaign on Indiegogo. When it comes out of beta and is available to the public, it will be available in the Google Play Store like any normal app. Right now there is no specific date on when it will be available to the public.

      Their roadmap currently says Q1 2014 for Andtoid app release.

    • Zed

      Exactly, my point was that it’s not available as of now, and I wasn’t aware of the kickstarter when it was on. So, how does downloading the apk make someone a pirate with respect to this product? If I like it, I will buy it when it’s out. If I don’t, I won’t. Simple.

  • God

    It needs a full keyboard that can be swapped in for abbreviations, urls, that kind of stuff that isn’t necessarily a word, because it takes far too long with the bar keyboard they got going.

  • RS

    Is there a resizable or L/R keyboard setting for the one handed swipers with 5″+ screens?

  • J-C

    Any luck trying it in french or using multiple languages at the same time ?
    Because I mean “cool” and “wtf” are pretty international.
