PocketCM Keyboard v0.5 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).

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 "ete", if I type 'e', 't', 'e', the keyboard will suggest "ete". 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:

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):
Later version will come with a clean install/uninstall.

Update Description:

- Build-in copy/cut/paste (press enter key for 250ms).
- Automatic back space repeat.
- Double tap on shift key to lock.
- Customizable symbol pad (available on any key trough settings).
- Customizable image on every key (through settings).
- More key available for layout: tab, esc, home, end, etc...
- Feedback window now is always centered.
- Bug fixes (row number, etc...) and optimization.

- Option dialog (deactivate autocompletion, choose layout and skin).
- New skin: "Dream".
- Speed optimization.
- Better support for more row: now the number of row is determined by the layout, you can even have different number of row for each layout.
- Better localization support.
- Suggestion box positioning improvment.
- Bug fixes.
- Clean uninstall: uninstalling the keyboard should cleanly remove the keyboard from the list.

- Fixed issue with skinning (not able to load images) and enable Windows Mobile suggestion in messaging app.

- Performance optimization.
- Bug fixes.
- Skin support.
- More settings.
- Ability to disable auto-correction.

- Suggestion box is placed near the caret.
- Suggestion box color (can be customized).
>> Green: I'm gonna replace your text with that.
>> Blue: your word seems correct, tap here for alternative.
>> Red: I don't know your word or any near word, is it a new one?
- Suggestion can be undone: after fixing your text, a button with your previous text appear, tap on it to go back.
- Shift key (can't be locked yet, it's coming).
- Tap and hold symbol key for 500ms and quick symbol will appear, choose your symbol and release (perfect to quickly tap a ? or ! without switching keyboards).
- Performance improvment.
- Bug fixes.
- Better default english dictionary (and smaller).
- Support for VGA devices.

Great application. Works well on the WM6 platform. If there's anybody seeking for slovak & czech keyboard in one, I can send it. Assigning 5 stars.

The application is great, in orer to get it working please follow these instructions copied from the developer website. They worked for me. Do it at your own risk, some people had issue with it... the kind of issue that required a hard reset. Also remember it's still beta... 1. Grab the Default IM Selector here [] 2. Instal it (of course) 4. Start -> Programs -> IM Selector -> chose PCM Keyboard 5. Start -> Settings -> Personal -> Input -> Select PCM Keyboard 6. Soft Reset and cross your finger.

Have succesfully installed Pcm keyboard version WM06 but when I go to input settings on my Htc Touch and choose Pcm as input method it says ''pocketCM keyboard has to be the current SIP in order to configure it" !? Can anybody help ?

nomail @ August 26th 2007 1:01 pm

So, look how i've installed: 0.You must have installed "Default_IM_WM5.CAB" in your device or "Default_IM_WM6.CAB" (from Microsoft site). 1.Copy the cab in your PDA (in C: or in Storage, doesn't matter) 2.install from there IN C:, i repeat, in C:, NOT in storage! 3.Soft-reset. In Start->Settings->Input choose the PCM Keyboard. In IMSELECTOR (Start->Programs) choose AGAIN PCM Keyboard. TA-DA :-)
