Dolphin Keyboard - German + Color Emoji

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

German + Color Emoji ( Requires: harbour-dolphin-keyboard >= 1.1-4 )


You must restart (the phone or keyboard), go to Settings and activate the new keyboard.

I've used the files from this comment ( and added a German Xt9Handler file, to allow coexistence with the English + Emoji keyboard.


Application versions: 

Added German layout without umlaut keys (based on default Dolphin English layout).

Changed order of accents such that the German umlaut is always  "up-right" from the base vowel.

ok, after usin the keyboard a little bit I encounterd 2 things.

After long pressing "o" for example, the preselected letter should be ö. Of couse depending on the choosen system language

The second one could be a bug but needs more testing. I have an android banking app and I have to enter a password to enter the app. My password contains numbers but in the moment entering the password, the keyboard doesn't allow me switching to numbers. I'm long pressing # but nothing happens.

Once again thx a lot

I changed the order of the "accents", so now when you long press o or u, "up-right" is ö or ü. I can't make it jump right to the umlaut itself, sorry.

The other issue I've encountered as well, but switching to another keyboard and back (or restarting the keyboard) fixes it - so I assume it's a bug in dolphin itself, not the layout or the prediction handler.

would you be so kind and release a version without ä ö ü on the right side like the qwertz keyboard here on open repos? rhis would be perfect.
