First, catch up on the orginal review Brad (Astros Fan) did here.

The Wraith brings us news up what’s been updated along with his thoughts –

The newest version of FatFinger is designed to improve the look and feel of this on-screen keyboard replacement. Most notable is the new option called “Qwerty-Rows”, which uses alternate color patterns to visually highlight the unique and somewhat unorthodox wrap-around design used by the keyboard. This is a definite help, allowing a first-time user to more quickly figure out the keyboard orientation. Other improvements include the ability to customize the look of the keys. With a full color device, it s possible to have up to 15,360 different combinations of key, outline, and font color. The symbol keyboard is now launchable from either of the keyboard shortcuts. The carriage return key has been added to the symbol keyboard as well, though at the expense of the backspace–but one can always use Grafitti for a backspace if you need it. It also now allows up to three lines of text to be displayed, with relatively little loss in keyboard space, with an option to automatically adjust the displayed space based on the size of the field being typed in. There have also been some minor bug fixes from version 2.0. All in all, FatFinger seems to be continuing to improve, and it makes an excellent replacement for the all-too-small PalmOS keyboard, whether you use a finger or a stylus.

Requirements: PalmOS 3.1 or above 

The full version costs $14.95. You can pick up the full copy or a demo here.
