I'm Vlad Todosin (aka Vlath) and maybe some of you know me for the development of the open-source browser BeHe ExploreR. Today I'm introducing to you a new open-source app, but this time a keyboard. I've tried many of the keyboards with special keys available on the market, but all of them have a downside (at least from my point of view) and that's the design and the ease of use. This is what inspired me to create BeHe Keyboard. This keyboard features three different keyboard faces (normal QWERTY, a D-PAD with special keys and a programming face). All of this faces can be changed with a touch of a button, this is what makes it easy to use as a default keyboard, without the need to switch between input methods when you want to do something new. Also, the arrow keys from the D-PAD face can be useful at regular typing.
So, with that being said, I'd let the app speak for itself. Remember, this is just the first version, more updates to come. I love to hear from you, so if you have any feature request, just post it here.
Also, BeHe Keyboard is open-source, so if you think that it's spying, go check the source, and you'll see it's NOT.
Contributors are welcome. BeHe Keyboard can be easily built with Android Studio, unlike the other open-source keyboards that are hard to build. My goal was to create a keyboard app that's useful and also easy to modify.
