Google Keyboard update brings long-press numbers on top row for tablets

Google has updated its keyboard app to fix some of the known bugs and add one handy capability to the mix. And that thing is the ability to long-press numbers on the top row for tablets, something that was missing in earlier releases. Moreover, keyboard layouts for some languages have been tuned, and there are also a number of bugfixes and stability improvements.

Yeah, it’s a small update (to version 1.1) but it’s a worthy one, especially if you own one of the Nexus tablets that come with Google’s keyboard app. Alternatively, we would suggest installing SwiftKey. It’s by far the best on-screen keyboard I’ve used. And that applies to both smartphones and tablets. It’s not free (after a trial period expires) but it’s worth every penny…
