I'm having a problem often keyboard handling in the event of an outbreak there is no way to remove it or minimize it, because the screen does not have empty fields where you can click. It would be ideal to open or close the keyboard to control even how to do it on Android with the arrow at the bottom of the screen, it might be an idea to eliminate this problem.

Keyboard can be closed by swiping down. However this can only be done in the area where the keys reside, not in the prediction bar. So just try hitting some key and swiping down. Works. Duplicate to: Question 4430-disable-keyboard-focus-by-swiping-it-down
