Excellent overall, but there are some small glitches
The dictionary is quite broad in its coverage, which means that most of the words one is likely to encounter are included. However, there are some glitches with the suggestions. It appears to me that mistakes made at the start of tthe word are not handled very well, especially where errors such as using a wrong initial letter or double-typing a letter are involved. Often, the correction simply ignores the double-letter initial, giving something like 'iinvitation' as a result.
I too tried others before this one. To be honest I thought I wanted something cutesy that made my phone different from others but I was wrong. Learned I just wanted a SIMPLE, EASY TO USE, and not every button known to mankind stuck on the main board where finding Waldo was easier than attempting to find a question mark. I also don't want to talk to my phone. I'm young but old school in how i think in regard to phones. Having an inanimate object talk back just creeps me out. Too much TV I guess lol.
Very good keyboard
Nice keyboard. I've tried so many keyboards and this one is best so far cos you control the size of the keys. Thanks Dev. For making this free
Makes all keyboards look crap by comparison!
Using this on my N4, beats anything that even attempts to beat it!
Maker/ Eng. Compilation.
I have not worked with the keyboard and I don't have the slightest idea of its working. Yet I am glad I obtained it.
Decent dictionary (anyone know how to delete words/keyboard app issue?)
I use this with 'Hacker's Keyboard' and it works well, never any errors or crashes, etc.. It doesn't have every word that it could but it's easy enough to Google one and then add it to the dictionary. (What *isn't* easy is deleting words from the dictionary that were added in error -- a shortcoming of the keyboard app, apparently. A few times, I did some unintentional finger motion or other and a 'Delete?' option appeared, but I can't for the life of me get it to come up anymore. Help?)
Works Great ......!
My samsung galaxy 12.5 just recently did an OS update and I lost the predictive text feature for hacker's keyboard, by installing this I was able to reclaim the features, thank you to the developer.
It works great with my Asus zenfone5 an excellent choice for some one tired of native keyboard

Its a realy good keyboard the only thing i dont like is that the keys are a litttle small (i haave lg optimus (lsg670)) the everything eelse is awsome now what i would add to it is the ability to use swype and to make your own themes

best input system yet! thanks.
after a firmware upgrade my phone reverted to the default keyboard and I was painfully reminded why I use hackers keyboard.
Been using for years
Only had a hiccup on the LG Lucid. I love having CTRL and ALT for SSH sessions.
I was using vnc to connect to linux based server so i needed all normal pc keyboard keys for my android phone and this does it
Super Happy Typing!!
Was totally amazed by comment (elsewhere) saying "you don't need cursor keys... just point." Obviously an "Expert" on computers since he got hisself a Smart Phone... Phone's smarter than him... :) Only thing needed is Handwriting Mode. (Sometimes)
Starting with Hacker's Keyboard 1.39.1, external dictionary plugins are now required to get autocompletion. This plugin that has been out for a long while provides the same English dictionary that was previously bundled with Hacker's Keyboard. It's a fantastic dictionary that works very well and is only an additional download away with this plugin.
Brilliant product, for a brilliant keyboard
NOTE TO FRUSTRATED USERS: This package is NOT the keyboard. It does nothing by itself and this is clearly indicated. I find hacker's keyboard a lifeline in connectbot - ssh sessions were a lot harder without it. This dictionary makes it more useful outside of the shell, in text message and such, by enabling the keyboard to offer spelling corrections as I type. A class act for free!
PUTS Stock Nexus 7 KEYBOARD TO SHAME!
Google should be embarrassed by this... 50 stars. I would love to donate!!
Timothy Aaron gadberry rates the hacker keyboard 4 out of 5 on the star list, if you have got a Android phone that is a new phone and is known for its hi technical marks and factory installed tools that have been engineered by the very best so you might not want to install this app the best androids have the best tools, if you have a less known or older Android , I strongly recommend this tool and any other tools that your phone may be lacking in...Timothy Aaron gadberry.

Must have for command line but...
If you could slide between keys like sw1pe... it would be absolutely the bomb!!! It would be worthy of 6 rating with the key slide functionality.
I like that you don't have any hidden privileged information requests. Also i like the app to boot.
Hackers keyboard and dictionary.
Did not work in full keyboard mode.
By stupid default, dictionary suggestions only appear in portrait view not landscape. Had to find and click a setting.
Thanks for making this app so I can easily type. But please reply my issue in The Russian dictionary I don't need that app
Nice one.I was missing my pc keyboard until I installed this. It would be heaven If you could integrate emoticons with it.its the only thing missing. Or am I asking too much for free? :-)
The must have keyboard
It is not the perfect keyboard, but it is a must have app. Great app. A big 👍

Best thing ever
I use a dvorak keyboard on my laptop. This is the only app that allows me to do that on my phone in an elegant manner :)

On my Nexus 7 I installed this along with Vim Touch and Air Term. I dig this keyboard more than the stock one. Much more natural. Also to have all the languages to autofill with is a dream. This is incredible! Too good to be free! Thank you! Very sweet App!

This is a an excellent dictionary add on for hackers keyboard, great addition. And anyway, could you make indonesian dictionary too? Thanks :)

Does what it says.
And works great. 5 stars when we get a method to turn off the profanity filter.
With JUICESSH this saved me so many times.
The only actual keyboard out there
This is the best fully functional real like keyboard out there which you are used to at home/office on your desktop and laptop. Better than stock android keyboard. But still I prefer Thumb keyboard on my 7 inch tablet as I can do all the typing with my both thumbs (which is ergonomically correct) and fast. I only wish this keyboard had split layout just like thumb keyboard. Imagine what peace of mind it would be to do the typing. On phone this keyboard is perfect. Four star because it is not really helpful for 7 inch tablet users.

Can't recommend it enough. It's got it all, except mind-reading and that's coming soon...
Nice n simple ..
Easy to use excellent guessing. It will be perfect if smilies are included.
