With the keyboard functioning on all cylinders, Chinese app developer CooTek set their focus on aesthetics with their latest Oct. 13th update, giving users even more incentive to stick with the popular keyboard. Let's go over the latest update and how much better you can get your keyboard looking.
For an in-depth look at TouchPal and all it has to offer, as well as setting it up, check out our complete TouchPal guide. Once you're ready, grab the latest version directly from the Google Play Store, or make sure to update the one you already have.
As mentioned by a TouchPal representative, autocorrect has been improved and battery consumption reduced, but the best improvement comes to the keyboard's customization feature. You now have the freedom to set custom images or solid-colored backgrounds, edit transparency, and choose font coloring.
To customize your keyboard, tap the TouchPal logo while you're using it, then go to Theme and select Wallpaper.
From the customization screen, you can choose to take a picture, load one from your gallery, or just choose a color.
After picking one, scroll down to choose a color for the lettering (which would be better with more options) and to select the transparency. If you're using a custom image, it sometimes is best to make the keyboard completely transparent.
Don't fret iPhone users, TouchPal is available for iOS 8, though you'll need to wait for these customization features in an update.
