Requirements: Android 1.5 and up
Overview: Ultra Keyboard is an advanced keyboard with many features geared towards reinventing the Android keyboard experience.
Like many keyboards, Ultra suggests words while you type. The suggestions box on Ultra is designed to be fast and easy to use, with many unique features. Press the drop-down arrow to quickly view all suggestions.
Are you frustrated trying to type in portrait mode, because the keys are too thin? Ultra combines keys so they're easier to press. Type like you normally would, and Ultra will guess what word you meant to type. If it's wrong, you can always choose the right word from the available suggestions.
Hold down certain keys to enter secondary characters.
For devices that don't have a track pad or navigation button, Ultra provides arrow keys that let you quickly move the cursor through text.
You can press multiple keys at once without missing keys (*for devices that support multi-touch). Slide your finger from the shift key to quickly enter a capital letter. Slide your finger from the view key to enter a number or symbol.
Have you heard about that popular keyboard that lets you trace out words instead of typing each letter? Ultra can do that too.
Ultra comes with built-in support for the English language. There are other language dictionaries available that you can download right from the keyboard.
Add words to your own custom dictionary.
Type "brb" and Ultra will enter "be right back". There are pre-defined replacements, and you can add your own.
Hold down a suggested word and you can easily stop it from showing up again.
Ultra supports many keyboard themes available from the market (both free and paid). You can also use Ultra's built-in theme editor to create your own themes, or edit existing themes (including custom fonts!).
Speak to Ultra Keyboard, and it will use Google's web-based service to transform your spoken words into text. You can also dictate punctuation.
Quickly translate your text to over 50 different languages.
Activate your camera to see where you're going while you text your friends.
Ultra's tool bar provides a ton of features in a tight space. Flick the tool bar left or right to scroll through the available buttons. Quickly change many settings, navigate through text, cut and paste, change dictionaries, change themes, insert emoticons, and more. Show or hide the tool bar by pressing your device's menu button.
Almost everything in Ultra is customizable. Don't like the compact keys? Disable them. Don't use a few of the tool bar buttons? Remove them.
What's in this version:
· Fixed suggestions not updating on Android 3.0+ devices when the tool bar was hidden.
· Fixed menu button show/hide tool bar feature (which was broken in 6.5).
