Jelly Bean brings with it many new features, but one of the most interesting ones is the entirely reconstructed keyboard. Appearance-wise, it remains the same, though Google has made some serious back-end improvements to improve word prediction.
Beansoft has ported the keyboard to Ice Cream Sandwich devices running 4.0.3 and above. The app, properly titled Jelly Bean Keyboard, is now available in alpha form on the Play Store. Currently, not all languages are supported, but users speaking English, German, French, Spanish, Portugese (Brazil) and Russian are in luck. Also, the user dictionary isn’t working and will cause a force close when trying to edit it.
Once installed, head into the ”Language and Input” settings menu, and select Jelly Bean Keyboard as your default method of input. Be sure to let us know what you think of the new keyboard in the comments.
