Hi all! I'm Corey, the HERO founder / designer, honored to be on PH! HERO is an MVP (no auto-complete bar, and weak auto-correct), and I'm a solo designer/founder. I contracted the dev work and I'm currently doing a Kickstarter to fund v2.0, but I'm thinking partnering and profit-sharing with a dev may be better in the long run. There's no Android version yet, but there will be, and I wrote the concept's origination story on Medium if anyone's interested: https://medium.com/@coreywstone/... Thanks and feel free to ask me anything!

@coreywstone I'm willing to live with software bugs and missing features right now, but how likely is the keyboard itself to change in any significant way? I feel like this is probably something I don't want to keep relearning.

@bhalp1 I've had some complaints about the Delete and Return being too close, and I have some ideas to improve number and symbol entry, so a few characters on the outer edges may change, but they'd be minor changes. When I add support for other languages, I'll need to optimize the letter location based on each language's letter frequency. Oy vey.

@coreywstone I'm pretty into this keyboard. Nice work. With autocomplete and swiping, I could imagine making this my default keyboard. I read in this PH thread that you have that in the plans. Great. I just wanted to encourage you to keep pushing because I think you are onto something, especially on my mega-iphone. :)
