Coming to the Keypad, Layout and appearance is Good. Features are nothing special and needs a lot of improvement. This review is typed on this Keypad and typing of English or regional languages is not comfortable. Hitap Indic Keyboard also facilitate for transliteration mode for Hindi i.e. Hindi can be typed using QWERTY keypad. With world icon or swipe on spacebar we can change language. The word suggestions are still at their baby steps when compared to other keyboards like Ginger Keyboard, Fleksy Keyboard or Swiftkey Keyboard. Improvement in the suggesting words is needed. The themes, smileys, emoticons are limited.
Overall, in our opinion, Hitap Indic Keyboard needs a lot of improvement to make it user friendly. With present features as on date, we will not recommend Hitap Indic Keyboard to try.
