Material Design. Multilingual support. Minuum 3.0 for Android is here!


The wait is over! Minuum 3.0 for Android is the big update we’ve been working on for the past few months, with major improvements to our autocorrect and a hotly requested multilingual typing mode. Our update has tons of new themes to celebrate full Android Lollipop support. New material design themes, textured themes, Christmas themes, and special adaptive Lollipop themes that change colour depending on the app that you’re in! We’re also throwing in an update to Minuum for Android Wear later today, so make sure you’re signed up for our smart watch mailing list.

Note that multilingual support is now available as an experimental setting; for many combinations of English with single other languages we’ve had delightful results, but note that it won’t necessarily work perfectly with all combinations of languages.

Our new keyboard themes are just the beginning, with plenty more themes to come! This release showcases a mixture of Material Design themes, as well as designs borrowed from our iOS version of Minuum. The new adaptive themes include a chameleon mode (thanks Patrick for the suggestion), which changes colour to match the app that you’re typing in, and a day/night theme which changes colour over the course of the day. Let us know if you have other themes you want to see.

We’re in the middle of some deep improvements with our algorithms, and the first stage of this work is released with 3.0. This update drastically improves corrections for English typing, including better vocabulary for first-time users who haven’t yet had a chance for Minuum to learn from their personal typing style. Stay tuned for even more deep autocorrect improvements!
