Why do I see square boxes instead of Indian Language characters on the Keyboard?
It is likely that your Android device does not support Indian Language Font and rendering.
For this solution to work, the device must support Indian language font rendering.
Unfortunately, we realized Samsung and Sony Ericsson(from what we know so far) are the only vendors in India to support Indian language fonts and rendering on Android devices.
Android by itself does not have support for Indian languages yet.
Our next effort would be to see how we can bring Indian languages to Android platform.

What are the known issues in the current released version?
Cursor on the text box moves away to the right after inputting certain indian language characters on Samsung Galaxy devices.
We observe the gap between the actual cursor position and the visible cursor position to increase signficantly after typing several words.
This issue is due to the underlying font rendering of Indian languages and needs to be fixed on the base platform by Samsung.
Users are requested to ignore and bear with this issue while using the keyboard as it does not impact the functionality until it gets fixed.
