    Hello All,

    Just wanted to share our latest update for Avatar Messenger on Android (Free app).

    The update features new UI (moved from UnityGUI to NGUI) and replacing Unity's Android keyboard with our own plugin implementation.

    We had many issues with Unity's Keyboard implementation on Android which made us delay the IM/iOS version and focus on fixing the keyboard. mentioned here: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/147669-Android-Keyboard-issues

    Issues addressed:
    • Interacting with both Unity view and Android's Edittext without dismissing the keyboard
    • Adding keyboard types when native input is not visible

    The implementation is not perfect but gave us more flexibility especially for the messaging screen and hopefully better experience...
    Also our implementation is not working well with Unity 4.3 (Unity player implementation changed and messed up touch position) so we published our app using Unity 4.2.2... we will try to address that in the future

    Feedback is welcome :)
