If you use Samsung Galaxy Note I or Galaxy Note II, you might notices that once you pull out the S-Pen out, the keyboard stays the same. However if you want to switch to different keyboard for example from Samsung default keyboard to SwiftKey, then this tutorial will show you how to perform this change, thanks to XDA Developer LegendK95.


This XDA Developer brought an app to S-Pen owners called SPenBoard Switcher. This app detect the S-Pen position and then it switch keyboard automatically based on predefined position. This app can be downloaded from this link, however you need to root your Samsung Galaxy Note in order to install it.

Once you install the app there are two models:

  • Learning mode will try to detect keyboard position you use in each pen position, remembers the detected keyboard, and then it will use it next time you pull out your S-Pen.
  • Fixed Mode which uses the keyboard you setup inside the app, even if you use another keyboard for short amount of time, when you pull out the S-Pen the keyboard is reverted back to the one you choose.

The app can be also enabled to launch at boot but it also works without problems with third-party keyboard apps.

Also once you installed the app make sure you visit this XDA forum thread where you can find more details about this app. This app was tested and reported to work on below devices, however it practically should work on any device that can detect S-Pen position.

  • International Note 2 (N7100)
  • International LTE Note 2 (N7105)
  • Verizon Galaxy Note 2 (SCH-i605)
  • T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 (SGH-T889)
  • Sprint Galaxy Note 2 (SPH-L900)
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000
