Whitson Gordon – Android: If you’re ever in a incident where you must be obtain out of the Android keyboard, a rather dark by-pass will shut it correct up: only appropriate from the tip of the set of keys to the bottom.
While many of the time, the back symbol should obtain you out of the set of keys flattering easily, the back symbol is a of the many unreliable, irksome things about Android. Coupled with an app that has a feeble built content box and you’ve got yourself a incident where the set of keys only won’t go divided when it’s ostensible to. For the situations, there’s this useful appropriate gesture.
If you do not obtain it on the initial try, you’re not alone-sometimes it may be a small finicky. The most appropriate way I’ve found to consider it is to grip the “T” key for only a broken up second, then draw towards your finger down past the spacebar. Usually this’ll obtain absolved of that pesky set of keys nicely.
This by-pass functions on the default Android set of keys for both Froyo and Gingerbread, together with many third celebration keyboards, similar to the really renouned SwiftKey . Sadly, it does not work in a couple of keyboards, similar to the default set of keys on HTC phones (though many of the have their own symbol to conseal the set of keys anyways).
For the of you that aren’t fans of the appropriate gesture, you can moreover press and grip the Menu symbol on your phone to conseal the keyboard. This moreover shows the keyboard, too, that is good if it doesn’t advance up automatically for a few reason.
