Press hard on the keyboard, it activates the 'trackpad' funktion
Cursor / Scrolling
I've used Fleksy keyboard until now.. and the "move cursor" functionality is extremely nice, tough it could be optimized more..
But it's so nice, to move the cursor within the keyboard, and not to have to go into the text.
I personally think, it could be made such like that:
Long press & hold on "space" and swipe left move curser to the left.. long press and swipe up.. move up..
a key to move the cursor inside a word to change a mistake or set a new word in the middle of a sent
Like the App Reboard, they use the spacebar to move the cursor.
The way the original keyboard from apple uses the 3D Touch is very smart. You can use the cursor if you press harder. Maybee there are even more possibilities?
The standard iOS Keyboard provides a "Force/3D Touch" Cursor which is very helpful for fast navigation within a text without leaving the keyboard. Maybe this functionality can be implemented easily as it already exists in iOS.
The IPhone 6S has the new 3D-Touch and one of the best features with it. If you have a written text and wane go to correct something in the middle, you dont have to touch in to the text. Its possible to press hard in the keyboard and move between the text (which is actually upper in the screen). This is so far not possible as, or I didnt find it. Definitely something you should somehow include in the great WRIO keyboard
The undo / redo gesture is very cool and helps alot.
What is missing is a gesture to move the cursor around.
I could imagine that using a two finger gesture like putting both dumbs on the screen and then move to left or right would do the trick!
Good work so fare!
Text navigation could be way simpler. Switch to visual mode like in vim, then move around, go back to typing. Since you can display the new meaning of the keys, it would also be way more user friendly compared to vim where you have to memorize the different meanings of each key.
Thanks for your consideration.
I used the fleksy keyboard for a long time. I loved its feature to drag on the spacebar to move the cursor, because using the on-board one isn't practical. I would appreciate a gesture to move the cursor. So you can type even faster, without leaving the keyboard to correct a mistake.
This might only be something I find useful but anyway here it goes.
When I have a typo or misspelled a word, instead of going back via touch input I swipe left and delete the characters up to this point to make a correction because this is faster for me than actually lifting my finger up from the keyboard to pin point the mistake and correct it (most of the times at least if I notice a mistake rightjaway).
However once I correct something I can no longer swipe right to recover what I deleted beforehand. As my typos usually only involve changing one character into another the to be recovered text would still be valid and I'd find it convenient to basically recomplete the otherwise correctly spelled word with a quick swipe to the right. This obviously only works as long as characters get exchanged and not rewritten entirely and might get redundant once autocorrection is implemented, but I had several occasions where I had wished this was a thing.
If there're any mistakes in the text - I'm still getting used to WRIO so forgive me ;)
Please add a text scrolling feature so i can go to start,end or anywhere of the text and modified text
[Delete this post if it's a duplicate.]
Sometimes it happens to me that I make a typo:
So what I do next is swipe to the left in order to delete:
Then I correct my mistake:
But now I have to type rger again.
Wouldn't it be great if I could just swipe to the right and it will fill it up again with the previous values (except for the amount of characters replaced of course)?
sollte möglich sein zu scrollen vorwärts und rückwärts mit dem cursor.
Bild im Anhang verdeutlicht was ich meine.
I'd like to suggest to include the hardware volume button to the keyboard. Instead of positioning the cursor for corrections with the (stubby) finger, I'd appreciate to move it with the volume button.
Alternatively the volume button could copy the left/right swipe and function as a delete/undo-button.
Using the iphones force touch, allows to use the builtin keyboard area as touchpad. A really useful feature to navigate within text. Add that feature to WRIO
Still love your keyboard, now I just found out that the apple native keyboard provides a special functionality: A pointer like mouse with a 3d gesture on the keyboard.
Is that something you could add?
