Keypurr Fixes Landscape Bug

Earlier in the week I wrote about the Keypurr alternate on-screen keyboard for Android smartphones. In the post I wrote that the initial release had what I called a fatal flaw of not working in landscape. The developer contacted me to let me know that they had released an update that fixed the landscape problem, and today I installed the latest version in the Android Market. As you can see from the screen shot, Keypurr does now work in landscape.

My review of Keypurr has been on a Nexus One running Android 2.2, and I first just updated the app as indicated by the Android Market. The update, however, did not seem to take affect. I then uninstalled the keyboard app and reinstalled it and that finally seemed to work. If you running the first release of Keypurr you will want to first uninstall it before installing the new version.

Keypurr, which is regularly priced at $3.99, is now on sale until January 10, 2011 for $0.99 and you can find both the free trial and the paid version in the Android Market.
