    Question Keypad: Where's the Delete Key and Movement Arrows?

    On the keypad, where is the Delete Key and the Movement arrows?

    Delete key is to the right of the p/0 key and I don't think it has movement arrows. To move cursor you just tap where you're typing with a finger and cursor appears then you move it to where you want it.

    The stock Google Keyboard doesn't have directional keys. Some preinstalled keyboards do (like my old Razr Maxx's stock Swype keyboard). It's a nice feature that I miss. You could always try alternative keyboards like Hacker's Keyboard. Don't worry about the warning that the keyboard might record your keypresses--that is a routine warning whenever you install any keyboard (including very well-established keyboard apps like SwiftKey).

    I use SwiftKey on my phone and N7. Love it.

    I wasn't sure if Swiftkey has directional keys--can you confirm that?

    Yes. It does. It's an option you can choose in settings.

    The new SwiftKey Beta not only gives you the direction arrows option, but also includes the option of having a numbers row above the letters. Very convenient.

    That's not Delete on my keypad: it's Backspace. But if it was Delete, then I would be looking for the Backspace.

    Yes, that I know; but it's hard to get the cursor in the right spot.

    I got the Swiftkey and changed the settings to show arrows; but they're not showing.

    For a test, I set to show number pad. That didn't show either.

    I got a free trial but it expires in 30 days. How much does it cost after that?

    To me back space is delete.

    I use the paid version of SwiftKey so I can't speak to the trial version. Check it out in the Play Store...

    I think the cost is $3.99 now.
