Modify The Transformer’s Dock Layout

Obviously, there are standards for everything in this world. The most widely used keyboard layout is known as QWERTY, because of the first six letters in the top left corner of the keyboard. However, despite this being standard, it is not the only way a keyboard can be laid out. Other parts of the world have special characters in their keyboards, like Spanish speaking countries, where the keyboard includes the letter “ñ” , and this is just to give you an example. Whichever style you may be used to, you will be certainly glad that XDA member fizban007 wrote up this wonderful guide on how to change the layout of the Transformer’s keyboard. The dev spent a considerable amount of time doing trial and error, modifying entries in the layout files for this device. The guide will give you everything you need to start changing the keyboard to suit your needs.

If you are in need of trying this out, please be sure to back up your original layout files in case you need them again. Please leave some feedback.

As a Colemak user I was initially frustrated with the Transformer keyboard dock, as it comes with QWERTY and there is no obvious way to change the layout. After some googling and trial-and-error I was able to solve the problem.

You can find more information in the guide thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
