Ok, so you use AnySoftKeyboard with the "Terminal" layout? That took
some time to find.

I use the US English layout by default, but switch to the Terminal
layout when I need cursor keys.

So you generally make do without Alt/Ctrl/Tab?

How do you input M-x? That would require the keyboard to stick around
when there is no active input, right?

I select Edit -> Execute Command from the menu bar.  (This option only
exists on the branch.)

Nice, thanks.

And I've just found that the "x" button on the toolbar acts as an okay replacement for C-g when inside minibuffer.

Do you know if we can associate a particular keyboard app with Emacs,
and use a different one with other apps?

IIRC some versions of Android offer such an option, but I looked through
Settings (on LineageOS 18.1) and did not find anything promising.

That's too bad.

It might be handy to have an Emacs-specific keyboard, with whole sequences (such as M-x/C-x/C-c/C-h) assigned to single buttons.
