Minuum keyboard gets updated, adds new floating mode and more

by: Andrew GrushAugust 20, 2014


Whether you have a smaller-screened Android device or are simply looking to maximize screen realestate regardless of how big your display is, Minuum’s one-line keyboard could be the perfect fit for you. Despite scrunching an entire keyboard into such a small amount of space, the experience is actually pretty decent thanks to the app’s excellent predictive capabilities. Now a good thing is getting even better with version 2.11.

The latest version of the app introduces some pretty cool features, including a floating mode that lets you resize and move your keyboard around the screen. There’s also a compact mode that lets you dock the keyboard to different areas of your screen. While these are the two biggest changes, there’s also an option for modifying how periods work and a few other minor tweaks as noted in the change-log below:

  • Double space for period advanced setting – This is an option for users to modify how periods work when double tapping the space bar.
  • Removed layer and mode switch buttons from shift menu – We have streamlined the shift menu to have less choices so we can reduce clutter. The removed buttons have been moved to Minuum Settings.

If you’ve yet to try Minuum, it’s worth giving a go, as you can use the keyboard free for 30-days to decide if it’s right for you. After the trial is up, you’ll have to $3.99 if you want to keep on using it. To grab the update, or to try the app for the first time, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.
