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):

very good

Very good. Would propose that keys as '.' or '?' or '@' should be in the main screen (space could become a bit smaller)
