Suggestion: allow for differentiating size of keyboard in landscape and portrait. The size I like for portrait takes up way too much real-estate in landscape.

There are a lot of features in this keyboard, and I like it. I hope it's possible to turn on what I really like in Swype, which is punctuation Keys as tap and hold secondaries on the main Alpha keys. I was very, very surprised to see the tap and hold functionality just didn't do anything to the main keys. (edit: found the setting!)

Also, how do you change case quickly , between all lower case, all uppercase uppercase, and title case? That was very quick in Swype.

I also miss the quick drag shift to a, c, x, or V clipboard functionality. I kind of prefer that to what I'm seeing in this keyboard.

I also just had a very amusing double autocorrect, where voice handed the keyboard one thing and then the keyboard turned it into something else. I don't recall ever seeing that before, but the particular Corrections were pretty darn funny. Two functionalities on the phone arguing about what I really meant. So now instead of me arguing with auto correct, I get to be a moderator between two different autocorrects?

Well now that's weird. Is the space bar slide app dependent? It's not working here in Google+.

OK, this thing sucks! I asked Alexa, "if it takes a hen & a half a day & a half to lay an egg & a half, how long does it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle"?"  --  and she just blinked and gave me the silent treatment!

;-)

She works pretty cool, though I'm facing some firewall issues where I work (I'm the I.T. guy, so that's not a true show-stopper). I don't use Amazon for music (Spotify), and since Prime is pretty meager, that's a bit rough. 

Wolfram Alpha sometime? Or do they have a non-compete going with Apple?

Wonderful! I've heard few versions of this I really like (Steve Bell's is a favorite). This is just sweet.

I've always pined for a way to delete to the RIGHT of the insertion point. I don't understand why no keyboards I've tried have implemented this. Especially when editing the middle of a block of text, there's frequent need of this.

Ergonomics!

Just installed Chrooma, and so far I'm liking what I see. I have little patience for keyboards that aren't significantly better than what I like. So far, the spacebar navigation has me convinced to stay with Chrooma for a while.

So . . . rightward deletion? ;-)

+Prajwal K True, the wipe/select feature DOES make up for not having a right-deleting function. Actually, I think you've answered my main concern with that by pointing to a feature that put that right in front of me, but the implication hadn't occurred to me yet. Huzzah!

Now I have another gripe or two. ;-)

Agreed 100%. 
"Download and copy path to clipboard", CamKego, 8/21/12 3:08 PM. It would be nice when downloading files and images from Chrome, if the download-bar item had an entry "copy path to clipboard", in addition to "show in folder". (save one billion clicks world-wide!) Cameron.

It almost makes sense since these are primarily dev kits, but it's crazy that they have this stipulation after charging full price for them.

From last fall. The only pretty spot in the last mile of my daily commute. And this day it was especially nice!

Great Chinese. Best around. Shrimp-fried rice is loaded with shrimp, and aromatics are good.

This place is the best. Nothing in the restaurant comes out of a can. This Is home cooking at its best.

Great for hikes with the dog, great for paddling canoe or kayak. A great way to kill a couple hours.
