    It's been a while since I've worked on anything "Chroma", but in the last few weeks there has been an explosion of interest in the Chroma Keyboard for Android.

    The number one question I keep getting asked is... "Why did I release it on iOS but not on Android? That's backwards, man!"

    All I can say is, I've heard you loud and clear, and the Chroma Keyboard is finally here... almost.

    I messed up a corner the other day. Those sjstp 90 degrees are a magnet to damage.

    Yes. Yes! YAS!! I would like to see more. Beta testers to the rescue.

    Swipe won't be in the initial release, but may come at a later date depending on how popular it is. It's a difficult gesture to get right, especially for one developer.

    What's the next step, seeing a beta release in the Play Store within a week or two?

    It's currently in closed beta, but yes there will be a general release as soon as I've finished some of the important features.

    I tried to be sneaky and check your GitHub repository. No luck.

    Should be for everyone, not device locked.

    Razer has not approached me to make it exclusive, so until then expect it to be for all devices.

    It's currently being tested on a Razer Phone 1, and a few of the testers are on Razer Phone 2. I just wish Razer could send me a Razer Phone 2 so I can truly maximise the performance.

    You should work with razer on this to be the default keyboard on future razer phones or work with third party keyboard makers to add chroma support

    I have a razer phone 1 and I can help test and also you could look at the open source keyboard Anysoftkeboard to maybe base your keyboard on
