Black hat has done something similar here.Guru-45 (talk) 13:17, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Nice find Guru. I've moved that into the explanation. --Jeff (talk) 13:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Gosh, Black Hat did something useful and constructive. Hurrah! (I'm such a dinosaur, I read "installing a keyboard" as "plugging in a physical keyboard". Have people got so short of time that even the word "app" gets dropped nowadays?) 23:33, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I still remember that word being "application". Seems it was getting shorter and shorter and now it disappeared completely :-) -- Hkmaly (talk) 10:44, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Given that the person is talking about text messages (ostensibly from the phone he is holding), they probably just didn't need to add that it was an app since that would be self evident. -Pennpenn 04:17, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

The word "App" only really came into prominence once Apple started using it as a word to describe applications on their iPhones. As a result, many people still have no idea that “app” is short for “application” or what an application is. Brenda (talk) 09:31, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Reminds me of the invisible Fleksy keyboard.Deyesed (talk) 07:31, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

You know, can Cueball uninstall it if there's no keyboard? SilverMagpie (talk) 19:54, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
