BlueFletch Keyboard is a configurable replacement for the device's default keyboard.


The BlueFletch Keyboard serves as a customizable alternative to the default keyboard on the device. It offers configuration options that allow users to modify keyboard layouts, disable key previews, and select their preferred feedback mechanism when pressing keys. This flexibility provides a personalized typing experience to suit individual preferences and requirements.
