Hope this is the right mailing list. :)
Thanks for all of your work on connectbot, I use it every day. On my devices, I have no d-pad (arrow keys), and also the "ctrl" and "esc" icons are a little hard to hit because they are small on high-res screens. So I made a few changes:
* ctrl/esc are big text buttons now
* added left/right/up/down buttons (and tab while I was at it, though it isn't really necessary)
* after you tap one you might want to repeat (esc/tab/left/right/up/down), the keyboard remains visible for 1.5s after that instead of disappearing immediately
A screenshot is at http://galexander.org/pics/connectbot-newkbd.png
and my patches are in the andlingers-softkeys branch on google code.
I'm open to feedback. I tried to do my best to do it in a simple style that will work everywhere but I'm still a little new to android development.
