With Blackberry sales so low I'm afraid there isn't much incentive for developers to produce good apps for it. They'll be chasing platforms that have more users - Android, iPhone and, to a lesser extent, Windows Phone. That's not much help for people like you but I'm afraid that's the way it is at the moment. Sorry.

I worry you might be right

Have you seen a smart phone with proper keys?

There aren't many. The Blackberry Priv is an Android phone with a slide out keyboard. As it runs Android instead of Blackberry's own operating system it has access to the full range of Android apps. Samsung produce clip-on keyboards for use with some of their more recent models such as the Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. I haven't used any of these so I can't make any recommendations but these would appear to be the best options.

There are keyboards ou can buy on amazon but I am scared of buying a crap one or one that isn't compatible
