Would it be possible to get that floating keyboard on another device? 4.1.2

I didn't read the OP but I'm gonna guess no.

Was I correct?

I'm assuming your phone is rooted. If so can you upload the keyboard apk? If not I'll just download a stock rom.

I wouldn't be surprised if a jailbroken iPhone could do that. And it'd be worth more in 2 years - and it'd still be getting software updates too, which I'm almost positive our Note 2s won't be getting in more than a year. >>

However, one thing the Note 2 can do that the iPhone will never be able to do is use a stylus like the s-pen. Sure, you can use a stylus, but it's like drawing with preschool crayons.

Just thought I'd be the voice of reason here lol

I don't have a note 2. I have an iPod touch and an Atrix 4G.

Apps on the iPhone can't resize. There is no framework for it. Even if it were possible the screen is too small.

Also I haven't seen any alternative keyboards.

The iPhone has a solid, simple, smart experience, however it does not have the potential of Android. An iPhone looks nicer, works seamlessly but isn't as capable as an Android phone.
