S9 Input Method for Android

S9 is an Android input method that utilizes swipe motions to distinguish different characters on a single key.

State of Project

I (Gilbert) have decided to stop working on this for a variety of reasons. I thought someone would be interested in picking it up or forking it, so I put it on GitHub.

For a list of "things to do", see "wiki" and "issues."

Demo

Installation

If you want to play around with it (it's still WIP), download S9.apk from repo and do the following:

  1. Install ASTRO file manager from market
  2. Goto settings -> applications -> check "unknown sources"
  3. Transfer attached .apk to SD card.
  4. Open ASTRO manager, find S9.apk, open it with app manager, install
  5. Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> make sure S9 is checked
  6. Find some input field, long press -> input method -> choose S9

Developer Tips

Here are some resources to get started:

The Sample Soft Keyboard, android-greek-ime, and the LatinIME source code are great places to figure out how to do things.
