The Android 5.0 Lollipop is the best version of Android till date. As always, Google has tried very hard to make the new version best, and it has succeeded too. Android 5.0 Lollipop Google keyboard has been given new material design too by Google, which is awesome. You need not to wait till your phone to get the new version update to install the keyboard app, you can download it right now, even in the non-rooted Android devices.
One of the XDA Developers- Shaftamle has made it so much easy for us, all we have to do is to go to the link, and download the APK hosted in there, download it and install it in our device. All you will have to do is to enable the new keyboard from language and input settings, when you have the APK installed in your device. The keyboard is however, reported to crash in the landscape mode in certain issues.
Along with the Android 5.0 Lollipop Google keyboard app, the Lollipop camera app is also available to download for almost all the devices, rooted or non-rooted. You can download it from here, and feel the difference in photography and videography from the new version of camera app. According to the host, the app has new icons, cool animations while tapping toggles and focus animation is present when camera refocuses after you move it (previously, it would refocus without visual cues). This is however, available for the devices which currently have the android version of minimum 4.4 KitKat, which means devices running on older versions can’t support it.
So, as of now, the Android 5.0 Lollipop Google Keyboard and camera APKs are available, and we hope other apps will also be available before the official release of the version. These are beneficial even after the official release, however, for the devices which will not be getting the update. Did you install the new apps of the Android 5.0 Lollipop?
