This is a simple clean cut project. Please look at android market (play google) and download thickbuttons keyboard. I wish to have an app written that mimics exactly this keyboard ... slight improvement in key contract and visual appearance but not change the layout. Allow turning off suggestions (not sure if allowed in thick buttons).
The additional features, on the top line of the keyboard Q thru P, over the alpha characters place small but readable numbers 1 thru 0 and the user has the additional option of long pressing and getting the numeral with a fixed longpress time wait of .600 second and a configuration option to make long press delay for numeral [url removed, login to view] and 1.5 seconds.
above the period, long press option for question mark. Above the comma button, long press for voice input activation.
Additional features, a setting to lower or raise the keyboar height between 30% and 50% in 5% steps. IE: 30% 35%, etc.
Code.. I dont' know any but you must know yours. This must not be a multimegabyte fat waste code block. Lean code in whatever language can net the under 1 meg code programs.
Compatiability to be distributed in ANdroid Market. I want a settable (secret only to me and adjustable) free use time. I will have you default this at 120 days but I want the option to change it and not be easily hackable. After that date, or demo time, keyboard posts flashing overly that the demo time has expired. This does not cripple the keyboard however until another 30 days and the cripple is such that it stops functioning after 10 minutes of boot up. I want to force the user to either uninstall it or buy it.. but not be nasty and cause them to find themselves locked out or finding they have to use the keyboard to remove it, etc.
THe key layout will be spread wide just like thick buttons. I do however want a basic color modifier that allows the user to change the keyboard color theme by simply pressing a color chip: IE RED BLUE ORANGE GREEN ETC. YOu handle the shading and the blacks automatically such as the separators between the keys might always be black but a thin dark blue highlight might outline a med rich blue key and a high contrast light color for the key identifiers. No low contrast designs where you have to squint to see the keys. Maximize the size of the primary identifiers and not make them tiny. The only small ones would be the numberic long press key numbers. the comma and period do not require minaturizing the voice input or question mark keys. I also want to find an agreed upon spot on the keyboard to keep the @ sign to minimize toggles. We'll talk about hat.
Give me your best price and be code sharp. I'll keep you busy.
Your price must include taking the code to essentially bug free.
I also want a annual support price that is paid by me once annually but includes your continued bug removal and adaptations to future generations of android and minor changes in features to keep the product on the leading edge.
FInally, I want you to have IPHONE and WIndows phone experience. Offer additional quote to include whatever code changes are needed to bring the Iphone version to the Itunes App Store. and WIndows phone store.
Must be tested to be Tablet safe and while not specifically designed for a tablet be sure it doesn't cause problems if installed on one.
I have a half dozen projects to pursue.
