It seems that there are apps which are using an OK-key on the keyboard instead of the "normal" Enter key.

In such applications the Enter-key sent by Jolla does not have the same effect as the mentioned OK button.

One example for such an app is Clash of Clans. I'm pretty sure there are others as well.

Is there a workaround or a known fix?


This is still an issue in 2019. Any chance this can be fixed in the new Android runtime implementation at least?

The new BitTorrent p2p chat/voip client Bleep also seems to use ok vs. enter, at least for some inputs

I'm also facing the same issue with Boom Beach and Clash of Clans. I'm wishing there is some fix because I'm not able to communicate to my task force members :(

Same issue ! Is there a way to select the android keyboard for android apps ?

I found many apps that use search bars and upon typing the search text and pressing enter key does nothing at all

Same issue with the Curve application, which makes it impossible to confirm the card. Is there still no workaround for this?
