Goals

Input method framework

This includes support for traditional input methods such as hardware and virtual keyboards. More exotic input methods should also be possible, such as handwriting recognition and voice input, and special purpose input methods such as date/time pickers, tag clouds, etc.

Core input methods

The default set of input methods should demonstrate the core capabilities of the framework and provide a good user experience that device manufacturers and integrators can use easily.

Third-party developers

It should be easy to customize existing input methods or develop powerful new input methods, whether for profit, research or fun.

Community

We welcome and encourage employees from different companies, freelancers, members of academia, hackers and volunteers.

Collaboration hub

Become a central collaboration hub for everything regarding mobile text input.
