    Hi everyone,
    I've searched the forums, cydia & also googled quite a bit but still couldn't find what I want...
    Since I'm using three different languages (Chinese, Japanese & English) plus emoji, there are five keyboards in my text input. Sometimes it's a pain to cycle through them to get to the right one. I'm wondering if there is anything out there that I can hold the 'globe' in the keyboard so it pops up a menu of all your different languages that I can choose from?
    Thanks in advance.

    Not that I know of, but I would also love such an app.

    I've got 4 keyboards - English, Emoji, Chinese Handwriting, Chinese Pinyin, and it's a pain, especially when the chinese handwriting decides to take forever to load.

    What do you mean by that? You mean tapping it more than once? Unfortunately, you can't, because 1) you can't until the new keyboard loads, and 2) the Emoji keyboard puts the globe in a different location than the others.

    What I mean is to tap & hold the 'globe' button for a while until it brings up a pop-up menu that I'm able to select the installed keyboards. If the 'globe' key is not practical, 'space bar' is also an option...
    Honestly, I'm not a programmer and knows nothing about coding so I don't even know if it's workable or not... It's just simply a suggestion which will make the users with multiple language keyboards much easier to toggle through to the right one.
    Cheers

    Sorry, my reply wasn't to your post - it was to someone else's post which he evidentally deleted after realizing how stupid what he said was.

    Yeah, I get what you mean and it's a great idea. Unfortunately I'm not a programmer either.

    Thanks for the invitation and will email you on my day off. And I think we better keep the foreign language off on the forum
