Default iPhone-like Keyboard (freeware)

Download here...

Installation steps:

1. Install HappyTappingKeyboard.arm.CAB (to device, not to Storage)

2. Install Default_IM_WM5.CAB (to device, not to Storage; for WM5 only; if u already have other program which can set the default Input Method, skip this step & use that program instead)

3. Extract the files in to your PDA's "\My Documents"

4. Goto the "Option" of HappyTappingKeyboard (Start -> Setting -> Input)

- select "\My Documents\ip_AC_QVGA_P.bmp" for the ";Portrait Bitmap"

- select "\My Documents\ip_AC_QVGA_L.bmp" for the "Landscape Bitmap"
(if your PDA is VGA capable, select the ip_AC_VGA_?.bmp instead, and select the VGA option)

- press "OK" to quit

5. Start -> Program -> IMSelector

- select "Happy Tapping Keyboard" as the default Input Method

6. Soft reset your PDA

7. Enjoy!

Specail Thanks:

- Happy Tapping Keyboard

- original skins from (it's corrected & modified for non-Jp OS)

- Default_IM_WM5 is a modified version of Default_SIP_WM5 (but can't remember where it's from)

Does this support autocompletion (or autocorrection as the iPhone keyboard software)? If so, in which languages?

The software itself does not support autocompletion, but this functionality is already provided by windows (you get a list with words matching the letters you've typed so far).

I'm also using Happy Tapping Keyboard & have a selection of skins including the iphone. Good application, easy to type with a finger due to it being larger than standard.

Finally. A workaround to not being able to skin the WM5 keyboard. Still wish I could skin the default keyboard, tho - but there's never a decert ROM for a device that comes with WM5 by default...
Move "sig". For great justice.

==Currently Using:==
Galaxy S2 i9100 OmniRom Nightly 0106 / Dorimanx 10.43v60 beta
Galaxy Camera EK-110 (stock rooted) (It only ever came with 4.1.2 so.)
Ouya (stock rooted) (it only ever came with 4.1.2 so.)

==Formerly Using:==
Liquid Community ROM 1.4 (Acer Liquid)
O2 XDA Atom WM6.1 Kuruma Final
HTC Touch Elf Opal Ultimate 3.2.1
LG KS20 Kiss20.4

Just installed it and tested it. Great piece of software. Good bye Resco Keyboard. This make it easier if you want to using your thumb plus it looks great, just like the i-phone. I hope they don't go shut this down too.
