PocketCM Keyboard v0.11 RC3 Description

Made by: Quentin Pouplard

It offers a visible feedback of the key currently pressed, you can imagine that your finger is on the keyboard... and now you can easily see what key is pressed. You can move your finger, the key will change, release it, the key will be triggered (so it's the opposite of a physical keyboard: the actual action is when you release the key, not when you push it). For VGA Support, please download a VGA skin, for instance here. Unzip the file of this zip archive in the PocketCM Keyboard directory (\program files\pcmkeyboard\ for most of us).

Why another keyboard for Windows Mobile? Because:
- It can be used with fingers.
- It suggest word based on letter position.
- It trigger the key when your remove your finger from the screen, not when you press it.
- It can be customized.
- It's a standard Windows Mobile SIP, so to use it you have to select it as the input method, therefore it can be used in (almost) any application.

Other reasons includes:

  • Customizable layout: as you can see the layout is "azerty" for the screenshot, by default PocketCM Keyboard comes with a QWERTY layout. Creating your own is just a question of editing a text file.
  • Accent recognition and suggestion: the keyboard know accentued letter... so for instance, the french word for summer is "ÚtÚ", if I type 'e', 't', 'e', the keyboard will suggest "ÚtÚ". No need to go to a sub/hidden keyboard doing some accentued letters.
  • Once you get used to it, you can grab it with two hand and type with the thumb... goes pretty well.
Missing/planned feature:
- Landscape mode: most landscpae device already have a KB. Do you need landscape support?
- Keyboard color customization.
- Better suggestion button.
- Ability to create keys that enter more text (for instance a ;-) smiley key.

Uninstall the keyboard manually:
Since v0.4 it shouldn't be useful to do it manually, however, here is the procedure if it doesn't work as expected.
After removing the cab, there may still be an entry in the keyboard list. To get rid of it, using your favorite registry editor.
Remove the key (and subkey):

Need help. I have installed both 0.14 ver. and this version. Both times I have went to (on my cell) Start > Settings > Personal > Input. This takes me to the Input screen to mess with my keyboard settings. There near the top of my screen, there is an "Input method" with a dropdown screen of all the keyboard types I can choose from. I chose one of the two PCM versions (there are two and I have tried both)and hit "OK" at the top of the screen. I try any program with a keyboard and the WM version comes right back up. I Later rebooted, went through all the steps but this time I rebooted after hitting "OK" instead of trying any program with a keyboard. SAME THING. It is always the WM keyboard and i am quite sick of it. ANy suggestions? Anyone with same problems?

Forgot to mention that the new version can be found here:


Tiffani @ April 5th 2009 7:39 pm

Okay, so I upgraded to the newest .23 version that I love it even more! I love that I can quickly hold and drag symbols like ! and ?, so I don't have to switch to a whole other screen. The letters are big enough to quickly and easily type with my thumb. I've tried lot of keyboards: TapTap, Coo Tech and about 4 others that aren't even worth remembering. This is far the easiest and the fastest. On top of that, the installation is simple and the file isn't all huge like most other keyboards. A plus! BTW, I just typed this whole thing with the keyboard!


Tiffani @ April 5th 2009 5:45 pm

Just downloaded the latest version to my T Mobile Wing. It looks nice. I'm using it now! I love how the letters popup while typing. I could do without the word prediction, though


Johnoel Williams @ February 6th 2009 10:36 am

I like it

Very nice keyboard with iPhone look. Easy to install and use. Love it.

New version is available from authors website: I installed it on my Sprint Mogul (HTC PPC6800) and it works well. Sometimes, however, it has trouble coming up well I click it and I have to soft-reset the phone to get it to come up. But this does not happen often. The rewards are plenty. Just try it.
