    "An interesting app for people that aren't satisfied with the regular keyboard on their phones. With this app you can let it alternate between a palate of keyboard backgrounds that portray different screens"

    "New versions of mobile operating systems are so refined and highly functional in many ways including the overall keyboard/typing experience that installing any third party keyboard apps is not only unnecessary, but detrimental for the smoothness and fast user experience. Also, look at the design of "Smart Keyboard Pro" it seems to be a thing of the past, like 2012 or something. Too ugly. "
