Microsoft introduces a keyboard for Excel on Google Play

Microsoft logoIf you are having trouble swapping between alphabetic keyboard and numeric keyboard on your Android device while typing your messages or working on your spreadsheet, then the Microsoft “Keyboard for Excel” is for you. Microsoft has just launched the app on Thursday on Google Play Store and it’s for only Andriod 4.0 or higher. Currently the app is restricted for US users only, and supports only English characters without auto correct and gesture typing.

Keyboard for Excel, like the name suggested, is developed with Excel users optimization in mind. The app is one of Microsoft Garage projects. Basically it is a third party keyboard for Android devices that comes with the 10-key number layout(or Numpad) on the right side of the keyboard along with a ‘Tab’ key on the left, just like a full-fledged physical keyboard.
