Last week, we told you about this newish keyboard called Chrooma Keyboard. The keyboard stood out to us because it mimics the Google Keyboard, yet adds to the brilliance of Google’s keyboard by deploying an adaptive coloring scheme feature that automatically adjusts the color of the keyboard to the app you are currently using. It’s a fun trick that makes your typing experience that much more entertaining.
Outside of the color changing, Chrooma Keyboard also excels because you can add a permanent number row, adjust the keyboard’s size, and even allow it to adjust the color to a night mode when lighting is dim. It’s a really cool, yet simple keyboard. Today, we are doing just that.
After sharing our thoughts on Chrooma, the team behind it asked if we wanted to giveaway 50 promo codes for it to the Droid Life community. We, of course, said of course! (more…)
Earlier today, a keyboard was dropped off in our inbox that has us pretty excited about a potential change away from the stock Google Keyboard. The keyboard is called Chrooma and it’s basically a form of the Google Keyboard we always wanted or at least kept hoping Google would build. In other words, it has a couple of features we wish Google would implement, along with a couple of really cool ideas that give your typing experience a boost of color. (more…)
Android tablets are not something we talk much about these days, because unfortunately for Android tablets, most aren’t really worth talking about. In fact, there aren’t many manufacturers even making them anymore, so our job of ignoring them has become pretty easy. But here or there, someone introduces one worth a look. Like, we gave the Galaxy View tablet/TV monitor/wtf-is-that-plastic-stand-thingy a short look because at least it was doing something different. And that’s why we are about to take a short journey with Google’s new Pixel C tablet. (more…)

The Blackberry Venice, a phone coupled with a slideout physical keyboard and mostly-stock Android, has fanboys of tech giggling like little boys who found their penis for the first time. It’s a keyboard! Like, the ones from back in the day on terrible smartphones that had good keyboards, but there is this thing called Android with it too! BEST. OF. ALL. WORLDS. I loved 2005!
Seriously, though, I haven’t seen this level of nerd hype since…I got nothing. But yeah, it’s everywhere right now, especially thanks to a massive leak out of Tinhte. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are going to have all sorts of official accessories available to them upon launch. So far, Samsung has announced fast wireless charging pads, fast charging battery packs, clear view cover cases, clear covers, glossy covers, S View covers, Flip wallets, and even Glitter covers. See, there are a ton of options. But one in particular gave us a chuckle while bringing back memories of the days when Blackberry once dominated. It’s the detachable QWERTY keyboard cover. Yes, it’s real. (more…)
