Install HTC Keyboard on Moment

Found this on another forum and it works for the moment. If it has already been posted, please delete.

http://androidcommunity.com/forums/f...ouch-3g-22181/

I tried it and the keyboard runs faster and with less lag than the Hero in portrait mode but feels the same in landscape. I think I like it better than the stock keyboard.

Re: Install HTC Keyboard on Moment

This is weird. For the past day I have been using the portrait HTC soft keyboard and my hardware keyboard. The HTC keyboard is great. Much faster than it was on the Hero. As a bonus side effect, I now have predictive text with the hardware keyboard. It runs at the bottom of the screen as I'm typing. This may have been an option before that I never activated and was inadvertently activated when I installed the HTC keyboard. Do you guys have the predictive and corrective text at the bottom of the screen when you use the hardware keyboard?

Re: Install HTC Keyboard on Moment

OMG!!! Just added this, and coming from a Touch Pro, this was the ONE thing that was missing. At least that i can think of. If you used a TP or Diamond and used the T9 input, you MUST get this KB, you wont use any other.

We used the Better KB and my wifes main gripe was lack of adding new words to the Dictionary (well, easily) and my main gripe was it would list a slew of words, but not any that started with other letters on that key. Like spelling ONE was impossible without holding 6 and selecting O, then 6 again, and selecting N, then hitting 3 to finish it. Or the word BE just could not be spelled without long pressing 2 and then 3 to manually spell it

Im adding it to this post for ease sake

Moment users to install:
Download the attached file to your computer, unzip it. Youll have the HTC_IME.apk file.

1. Download to your SD Card (you DO know how right?)
2. Navigate to the file using a file explorer program, i recommend ES File Explorer, free from the App Store (just a plug, its not mine).
3. Click on the .apk and watch it install.
4. Go to Home -> Settings -> Locale and Text, Select Touch Input. Touch Input settings are below that.

Note: If you use Handcent, you must disable the Handcent or Better KB first, or it wont use the Hero KB. It doesnt seem to do T9 on the built in Browser though... (sigh).

I just sent 5 texts to my wife in quick succession (with NO spelling errors) AND added the word DANG to my dictionary!
Attached Files
File Type: zip HTC_IME.zip (3.84 MB, 304 views) Click for barcode!
