Improve Themes

Jonathan Cormier shared this idea 1 year ago
Planned

Hi all,


I like how the native iOS keyboard has vibrancy and the content comes through the keyboard. If WRIO keyboard had black / white themes with this implemented would be neat, and these themes would make the keyboard feel more native to the platform. Just a thought.


Thanks for all the work.

Hi Jonathan, I was just checking on my iPhone and I'm not 100% sure what you mean, although your idea sounds cool :-) Would you maybe have a screenshot or graphic that illustrates your idea? Thanks a lot for the ongoing support. We're in the middle of a workshop with the entire team, exicting! Cheers, David

Notice how some of the blue from the text boxes comes through. Hope that helps.

Ah I see. While we really like the idea (we had similar thoughts), it will be very hard if not impossible to get access to information from outside our keyboard app space. What Apple does is that they take the graphical information above their keyboard and replicate it as the keyboard background. We'll put it on the idea backlog though! Thanks, David

Cool. Cool. Right, I wasn't sure how much you could do as a keyboard application. Apple makes some things easy in one area of their frameworks and some times completely impossible in other areas, leading to weird hacks, etc. If it were to affect the stability of WRiO as a whole it wouldn't be worth the effort, but if it ever becomes a toggle switch a way from enabling, it would be cool to have.


On the topic of themes in general, are there any more in the works?


Keep up the work. Cheers.

Hi Jonathan


At the moment we're tuning the autocorrection and working on new features to let you type even faster. But as soon as the most important ones are implemented we'll work on new themes again. :)

Best, Janis

Looks nice. We want to implement some new themes in the next major update and we'll definitely keep it in mind 👍

Thank you very much! 😊

Hi Marcos, could you specify what exactly you mean please? Cheers, David

I mean that you guys can get the main color of the app from its colors definition file and match that in a theme so it would be green on whatsapp, blue on telegram, etc like in the attached file.

Are you guys still working on more themes it's been a year since this question was ask. It would be awesome for an all black theme for super amoled screens. The only reason I don't use this keyboard much is because I don't like the current themes.

Hi Phillip, yes, WRIO 2 will come with new themes! :)
