CedIME 1.0 發佈到 Android Market

終於將過去一個月的努力成果發佈上 Android Market。

其實本來一直用開 HTC Magic,也有寫其他的app,但是沒有想過寫中文 Keyboard,因為老實說 HTC做的 Keyboard 真的很不錯,要比 android 本身的好。直到一個月前轉用了 Nexus One,找來找去都找不到合心意的中文 Keyboard,總是不及 HTC 的好用,於是把心一橫,用了一個月時間自己寫了一個出來了。雖然還不算完美,但至少HTC Keyboard上我覺得不錯的功能都有了,例如英文的 auto correction, auto completion,以及儲存用戶定義的字。中文方面我個人主要用倉頡或筆劃,所以先把這兩個輸入法加進去(將來還會加其他的,如果有人需要的話),同時也有聯想字和儲存中文詞的功能 (這個功能和英文的不太一樣,如果用過 Magic或 Hero的人應該會了解)。

明天再寫個比較完整的 feature list 供大家參考。

Thanks for making this for us... please bare with me as i would like to make some suggestions:
1) i think all android phones have a back button through which pressing it will get rid of the keyboard... so i don't know the purpose of having a "keyboard down" button. In my honest opinion i think that space can be used better - Either replace with smiley box or removing it so that the space bar can be wider
2) Auto keyboard switching from symbol to letter when space bar is hit right after symbol input
3) Auto space (#1) deletion between word and certain symbols when the following format is input: (word)+(space#1)+(!/:/;/?)+(space#2). space#1 is required when selecting top suggested word

just my 2 cents :) using your keyboard to type this comment. Gotta love the auto correction

中文方面我只可以評論筆劃:整體不錯, 只是感覺介面在空間運用上還可以進步,,例如標點跟五劃可以站兩邊靠,從而可以讓各按鍵面積增大,像QQ的般;另外直勾的處理是小弟平生未見-例如"子",小弟以前都是"フ丨一",現在要"フフ一"不過這只是習慣不的問題。雖盡如此,小弟還是愛上了大大的鍵盤。請繼續加油!!(呃,剛發現三點水不是丶丶一是丶丶丶才對...)

@manofidiots:
Thanks for your thoughtful feedbacks!

1. I agree the "keyboard down" is not useful really. I've tried to remove it however the arrangement of the bottom row of keys becomes awkward with one less key. Smiley box is a good suggestions, I'll definitely think about that.

2. Thanks for pointing this out. Plz check market again, it's updated.

3. I'm also aware of this feature for the Android keyboard. For:
(word) + (space) + (,.?!;:)
it will be changed into:
(word) + (,.?!;:) + (space)
This is required because the android keyboard will automatically add a space after selecting a word from the candidate list. However I'm currently following the HTC Keyboard which does not add space automatically. So this feature seems less relevant. Nevertheless I may try to add an option for this later =)

筆劃的話現在的排列跟 HTC Keyboard 的筆劃排列是一樣的,QQ的我沒有仔細看過,會留意一下。
另,直勾的處理我也是覺得比較奇怪,筆劃輸入法的字庫是跟據全字庫的資料,要是能找到比較主流的筆劃字庫換一下不成問題。

我都係n1用家,之前用隻隻倉頡都頂唔順
但係終於比我等到呢隻倉頡
字既排位好,唔同原本個個密,速度快
仲有少少建議,希望加埋數字鍵係最頂
仲有禁完shift之後自動轉返做細楷
講既係咁多,十分感謝作者!

@豪:
按 shift 打完一個字是會自動轉細楷的
長按 shift 就等於 caplocks

點解更新完仲衰,仲唔好用過之前多多聲。
邊會有人咁蠢改到用slide去轉換輸入法架,仲要轉換時超唔順。
我係desire用家。
