On-screen keyboard X-Key is designed for entering text information with a touchscreen phone.

X-Key's button layout is close to the standart one , so it can be used right away, without the need of getting used to it. The keyboard can be positioned in portrait orientation (small buttons - for pressing with fingernails or stylus) and in landscape orientation (large buttons - for pressing with a finger).

Besides, the orientation of the keyboard can be switched on the fly with a special button. The keyboard is adapted to the small screen size - when a button is pressed its enlarged symbol appears in a pop-up window and the data input occurs only on release of the button. The keyboard is equipped with its own text editor for easy monitoring of the text input.

Unlike a standard on-screen keyboard, X-Key does not block the application it is used with. All soft keys and controls continue to work (e.g. after entering an SMS it's not necessary to close the X-Key - you can just press the "Send" button ). Besides, the X-Key has a special button - holding it hides the X-Key and allows you to see what's underneath.

X-Key is a multilingual keyboard, it supports 75 language layouts (almost all possible languages). You can set up to four different layouts for quick change (such as English, Russian and Ukrainian).


Supported Smartphones

X-Key is fully integrated into the system and works like a standard on-screen keyboard.
