Assign Keyboards Based on Orientation – Keyboard Manager for Android

XDA member ne0fhyk has just released a very interesting app for those of you who don’t have enough with Android’s stock keyboard manager. This new app allows you to set a different keyboard based on the orientation of your device. In other words, let’s say that you like using 8pen when you are in portrait, but always need to go into Settings to change the keyboard whenever you switch to landscape because you like to use Swype. This app allows the device to save such preference and will kick in every time you tilt the device to write. The device must be rooted to use this.

The app was just released, so it may have a bug or two. Make sure that you report any and all issues in the thread.

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

You can find more information in the application thread.

While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
