    Looking for keyboard app for Samsung Galaxy A52

    Locked

    by computer gary ·

    After four years, I finally got myself a new phone – a Samsung Galaxy A52. I’m looking for a keyboard app that meets my requirements, and I’m hoping you can guide me to the right direction.

    My requirements are:
    1) I need arrow keys on the screen at all times.
    2) I need to be able to have a customizable user dictionary that allows me more than one line of text. (Some apps I’ve tried, when I’ve typed a line of text and then the return key, ignore the return and will keep the text that’s supposed to be on the second line, on the first line.)

    Thanks!

    Thread title updated to prevent confusion.

      ISO (and ANSI) keyboards are physical keyboards. See https://switchandclick.com/ansi-vs-iso-layout/ . I don’t think that’s what you’re looking for, but just in case it is have a look at the official “Samsung Trio 500 Smart Bluetooth Keyboard”.

      The effect of the return key depends on the program/app that reads the key, not on the keyboard. The keyboard just tells what key is pressed. And the program decides what to do with it.

        “ISO” in my original subject line meant “in search of,” as in ‘I’m looking for a recommendation.’

        I didn’t know it had another technical meaning.

        I don’t know what an ISO keyboard (or an ANSI keyboard, for that matter) means in the context of your response.

          ISO and ANSI are organisations that issue standards. Well known acronyms. To see my answer in context click the link.

      Navigate to and open Settings, and then scroll and tap Apps. Tap the sort icon and then tap the switch next to Show system apps, and then tap OK. Search for or scroll to Samsung Keyboard, and then tap it.

      Congratulations on your new Samsung Galaxy A52! Finding the right keyboard app can be crucial for a smooth user experience, so I understand the importance of your requirements.

      Based on your needs, I would recommend checking out the Gboard keyboard app from Google. It offers arrow keys on the screen at all times, and allows you to customize your user dictionary with multiple lines of text. This means that you can easily add and manage your own custom words and phrases without the limitations of some other apps.

      To enable arrow keys in Gboard, you can go to Settings > Preferences > Layout and toggle on the “Long press for symbols” option. This will allow you to access the arrow keys by long-pressing certain keys on the keyboard.

      Additionally, Gboard offers a wide range of features, such as predictive typing, multilingual support, and voice typing. It also integrates with Google search, allowing you to easily share search results with your contacts.

      Overall, I believe that Gboard would be a good fit for your needs. However, if you find that it does not meet all of your requirements, there are other keyboard apps available on the Google Play Store that you can explore.

      I recommend trying out the “SwiftKey Keyboard” app. It offers arrow keys on the screen and provides a customizable user dictionary that allows multiple lines of text. It should meet your requirements for a keyboard app on your Samsung Galaxy A52.
