I'm working on a version where the "zxc" keys will be placed next to the "vbnm" keys (brilliant idea of nutweevil earlier in this thread). This will remove one row of the keyboard, so it will be a bit smaller.It's a great concept and i feel as if i could really get used to it, however i'm not sure i'm willing to give up that much of my screen space. I'm using a Desire but for a phone such as the Wildfire i reckon you wouldn't be able to see a message you were replying to for example.
Color themes is a good idea.. will put it on the todo list. The configurable keys is something I promissed before but I have to look at it again if it is doable. (Then again it's a nice challenge).Just tried this keyboard now, and I have to say, it is very good! I tend to type a lot with thumbs, and have a hero, and tend to find issues with the standard HTC keyboard due to using thumbs and not a tiny finger. This really has helped, alot.
It makes it a lot easier to type, and the layout is really intuitive. Thank you!
Again, the only problem I had to report was the sound being always on despite being unchecked, but thats only an issue when I am at work. Other then that, iy could make the arrow keys configurable to other keys, or smilies or some such, but from I have read it seems you may already have that train of thought. Colour themes to show what thumb for each set would also be good for people who either use a stylus, or finger type mainly (such as swype) as would help get used to it, but again, i think that is also something someone has already said.
I'll use it a bit longer and if I have anything better to say I will post again
Edit: Just found this in the market - Donated
Bug sorry. Concerning Querz, never heard of it. Have to look at it.Two things I noticed while quickly trying it:
a QUERTZ layout would be nice and somehow key-press sounds are still on though I disabled them. Why?
1 and 3. I want to redo the whole shift key functionality. I agree it is not working that well atm.I'm liking the app so far though there are a few bugs that I have found.
1. After pressing the shift key, it seems to be unresponsive for a few seconds
2. Auto correction would be nice. Preferrably something you can hide from view if you wish (kind of like the default android keyboard's correction system, but with the choice to hide it)
3. The shift key is a little wonky. You already know about this
4. I noticed that after turning the sounds off in the settings, they are still playing.
5. Double-tap space for a period would be nice (I'm just used to it )
I will let you know if I find anything else.

I've placed color themes are on the todo list.Just trying it on my galaxy s. Looks good, I agree that different color could be a help to determine space for each thumb.
Also, my thumbs are not so exercised well to move on this kind of space, so must work on it
Anyway good way to go...
QUERTZ is the setup used in central and eastern Europe. Can't post the wiki-link to it, as I am not allowed for outside links.Bug sorry. Concerning Querz, never heard of it. Have to look at it.
Scratch what I just said above, I just haven't been using android for long and didn't realise I needed to long-press the text field to choose the keyboard.May be because I'm running Android on my HD2, but after install although the application is there user settings there is no way for me to select the keyboard when writing a text or email, or under the settings menu.
Shame, as it looked ideal
sorry to interrupt and correct me if i am wrong -> are you by any chance talking about the QWERTZ-layout?QUERTZ is the setup used in central and eastern Europe. Can't post the wiki-link to it, as I am not allowed for outside links.
There is also AZERTY-layout for french people. Including those two would be excellent so non-english users don't have to adapt to a new layout.
