InterKey Standard 3.0

Paragon Software (SHDD) - Penreader, a leading software developer of productivity, security and educational applications for mobile devices and desktop PCs, releases InterKey 3.0 � a multilingual text input application for Windows Mobile Pocket PC. Due to large and fingertip-friendly keys, text input by hand or stylus becomes effortless, and typing foreign languages on a standard keyboard is fast and accurate.

Looking for handy onscreen keyboard in your own language? Need for effective text input tool and want to type using the finger as well as the stylus? With up to 60 national layouts and large finger friendly keys, InterKey for Windows Mobile will be the best solution!


  • 60 national keyboard layouts give you the ability to write in your native language. You can use multiple layouts simultaneously and quickly switch between the languages. For some languages additional alternative layout is available, for example, Latin American, Brazilian, US Dvorak, etc.
  • NEW! Finger input allows you to enter words by using just a hand thanks to large finger friendly keys. A selected key is zoomed while writing � release your finger to type it. If the wrong key is zoomed, slide your finger on the screen releasing it when the desired key is displayed.
