Keyboard height problem.

I have known you since your former business (Fetan Printing Press) was at 18th & M in Washington, DC. That was before computers and softwares era. I used this app for many years. And I loved it. It is so easy to use. Now, because of the keyboard height problem, I had to switch to other Apps. I kept coming back to this App to check if the problem has been resolved. But it is still the same. I know apple updates are messing up your App. Do you think this height problem can be resolved? Should we expect some kind of update soon? Thanks

Well crafted Amharic keyboard

This is a well crafted Amharic keyboard. Installation is easy that will not take minutes. When typing in Amharic, it is logical as it is based in phonetic combinations. It is also complete; you can key in 231 plus Amharic alphabets. I am impressed by the developer’s responsiveness for this app’s improvement.

Much recommended for those in need of effective and productive Amharic keyboard for iPhone.
