Android 4.2 Keyboard with Gesture Typing Leaked

The imminent release of Android 4.2 is exciting news. We’ve brought you an outline of the features coming with Android 4.2, one of which is gesture typing. Much like the popular Swype keyboard, you can swipe letters to write works. Unlike Swype, the gesture is analyzed in real time. In other words, you can see what the keyboard is predicting as you swipe. The keyboard has been leaked for people to try.

XDA Recognized Contributor mrmako777 has posted a thread with the download link and instructions for installation. Users will need to be running ICS or higher in order to install it.

For AOSP ROMs, you must download the zip and flash it in custom recovery. For skinned ROMs that don’t include the AOSP keyboard, such as TouchWiz and HTC Sense, you just download the zip, extract the APK, and install the APK like normal. Once done, you’ll be able to use the newest keyboard and it’s cool gesture typing features.

The keyboard has also been making it’s way around the forums. If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or a Motorola Atrix 2, you can find more specific instructions in the Galaxy Note 2 thread or the Atrix 2 thread. For everyone else, check out the general thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage.
