The BlackBerry Keyboard app, found in the Google Play Store, is available to users of BlackBerry branded handsets that run on Google's open source Android operating system. The virtual QWERTY keyboard features BlackBerry's flick typing that allows users to see different possible choices for the next word in their sentence, and flick it with their finger into the email or text being written. The video at the top of this story details some of the things that the BlackBerry Keyboard can do.The app has just received an update that among other things, automatically capitalizes the first letter of a new sentence. While that feature is already available on most newer models, it appears to be a hit or miss sort of thing as some users have complained that their BlackBerry doesn't do this. Other changes to the app with the update include:
- Customize the number pad to include symbols and emojis.
- Updates to some of the Chinese language to include missing characters.
- Updates to some of the Indian language to include missing characters.
- Minor enhancements and stability fixes.
