Yea. I also like this idea. But since that is the default behaviour in Gboard and most Android keyboards, and many users have gotten used to them, it will be a good idea if Keyman will just follow suit to make the keyboard easy for users. Many people who have Keyman and the local keyboard installed on their devices still prefer to type the local language with English keyboards, and that’s because those keyboards are far easier to use than Keyman keyboard.
After installing Keyman app and setting up the local language keyboard for one user, the first thing he said after having a feel of it was that it is quite different from other keyboards. He said that in the others, after the first capital letter, the next was supposed to be small letter automatically. I agreed with him and said that feature will be available soon (my statement was based on the promise made by the Keyman team in their Roadmap and previous comments). But, unfortunately now, that feature is not making it to version 15.
If Keyman app gets closer to other keyboards in the way it operates, while still maintaining those her powerful abilities that makes it navigate the sea of thousands of languages, I think more and more users will use it and appreciate it more.
A note to @Marc and @darcy : I don’t know what the statistics on Keyman server say, but from what I am observing in my community (which may be true of other low-resourced language communities), there are far more mobile users than desktop users, so it will be nice if the mobile app is given priority.
