CrashReporter 0.2f available for testing; iKeyEx 0.3 sneak peak

CrashReporter 0.2f has been available for testing. This version should fully eliminate the crash caused by fat binaries. Also, it has a hidden preference enabling "Email crash report to developer" within CR. But to avoid swarm of emails by stupid users blaming the tertiary suspects without any grounds you're required to read the source code of CR to know how to enable it ;).

Also, I have put up iKeyEx 0.3~beta1 for anyone who needs the new feature to test. 0.3 is an intermediate version between 0.2 and 0.5 to address some keyboard developers' requests, in particular:
  • When the key is a combining character, NFC is automatically applied.

  • variantType = "immediate-accents" (e.g. Thai and Arabic) is available via "text with traits".

  • more-after and shift-after (e.g. Zhuyin keyboard and the apostrophe) can be explicitly turned on and off via the "after" traits.

(0.5 shall support the "image" traits again, and thus keyboard theming; and the "star" operator in .cin IME.)

And, I'd like to point out that, if you want to change the text of Return and Space in your keyboard, you can already do so by strings.plist. This is supported from the start, not a new feature.


  1. @kennytm

    how can i set so when activating my keyboard it start from right like Arabic and Hebrew and not left?

  2. Hey Kenny I've asked the same question several times indeed: Is it possible to make a new Chinese input method (like 速成) using ikeyex? I can find the .cin file, but how to convert and install into the phone is still like a myth...
