  2. Good grief, Kii keyboard isn’t in the Play Store anymore? That was my favourite keyboard for a team, I did my fastest typing on it. Glad to know the developer hasn’t given up or abandoned it.

  3. LOL! The guy actually abandoned the app. He was frustrated by Google. The link is the last apk of the app. Still works well anyways

  4. @ Elroy, did he say what his frustration with Google was? So sad when you see this happen to a developer. I’ve seen many a good app abandoned in the Play Store for the same reason.

  5. he probably uses “”
    replacing the “www.” with “ss” in the youtube video url.

  6. Thanks for the tipoff. Been trying hard to get the original tube mate. This one eventually paid off.
