The team behind the popular Minuum keyboard app for Android devices are rolling out a new update today on Google Play, which offers some new features such as floating and compact modes, among others.

The change log for the new 2.11 version describes these new modes along with the other changes:

  • Floating mode - This feature lets you freely resize and move the keyboard around the screen. This is ideal for tablet users and people who want to type with one hand.
  • Compact mode - Similar to floating mode, compact mode will let you dock the keyboard to different places around the screen.
  • Double space for period advanced setting - This is an option for users to modify how periods work when double tapping the space bar.
  • Removed layer and mode switch buttons from shift menu - We have streamlined the shift menu to have less choices so we can reduce clutter. The removed buttons have been moved to Minuum Settings.
