Comment(by Yorick):

 Replying to [comment:9 zecke]:
 > I think the current keyboard without prediction and zooming will not be
 usable with a finger. How would you solve that? Make the keyboard widget
 bigger so one differentiate between the characters (this would mean having
 a distance between the keys in pixel that is bigger than the average
 finger size)?
 > I believe that just turning off the prediction will not help anyone. The
 only thing I can think of is to make the distance between the keys bigger
 than the finger size. This would also mean to break the board layout as
 not all keys fit in one line. So how exactly is that solved by your
 current phone?
 > Feel free to reopen the bug.

 Are you sure it would not be usable Zecke? I used raster's Full Qwerty
 keyboard, with my fingers and it works great! The keys are much closer
 together on that keboard than on the predictive one...
