Default Keyboard Manager Allows You To Set Your Default Keyboard Based On Device Orientation

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.xda-developers.com/android/assign-keyboards-based-on-orientation-keyboard-manager-for-android/' target='_blank'>http://www.xda-developers.com/andro...er-for-android/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"XDA member ne0fhyk has just released a very interesting app for those of you who don't have enough with Android's stock keyboard manager. This new app allows you to set a different keyboard based on the orientation of your device."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//adt/auto/1291489486.usr206.png" /></p><p>This is an interesting application. It allows you to choose with keyboard is active based on which way you are holding your device. Say you prefer Swipe for your portrait typing but like the big key typing on the stock Android keyboard in landscape. Well not you don't have to change them manually. It is worth noting that this does require your device to be rooted and some kind of root file explorer so you can hack config files but it is an interesting idea if you frequently use different keyboards on your Android device. Does this program fill a need for anyone out there?</p>

Cool Good idea but...

I was just coming to conclusion that I wanted something on these lines for just your portrait/landscape reasoning. But my desire is not rooted
