Checkvist mobile should also basic keyboard support, at least for navigation (ie, moving the "cursor" up and down a list). Mobiles and tables can be used with external keyboards (some tablets include their own) and the Checkvist Mobile could useful on the desktop as well, if you're trying to use less resources or just want to make a quick change. In fact Checkvist Mobile interface would probably be more fitting for browser extensions (like Google Chrome's) than the full Checkvist "desktop" version.
I just received the new cosmo communicator. Full keyboard device! This would be the killer feature. checkvist web works fine in chrome for android with the keyboard, but it has no offline sync.
This task is in plans, but no estimates yet. There are some technical issues with making bluetooth keyboard working with a Web app, not yet resolved (but not deeply researched recently, so there may be some changes). Hopefully, we'll find a solution.
Thanks for writing us,

Can we get a statusupdate on this feature? I read in a 2013 blog entry that you planned to implement external keyboard support for checkvist mobile. I personally think that it is crucial for seriously using checkvist on a mobile device. Now working with an external keyboard is a relative frustrating experience (on Ipad and blackberry) - in the mobile and the regular checkvist site.
- Is this due to unfix-able browser-interaction limitations?
- (When) is this external keyboard feature still planned for?
Oh yes! Keyboard support! Please. This is one thing I love about CheckVist, and the reason why I keep using the desktop version on my Android smartphone.
