I find it useful to use a mobile keyboard in scratch and could be useful for platforms,

So I asked Paddle2See:

I have a question: Since mobile and tablet users can view projects, how will they be able to play projects like platformers?
And then he replied:

Because they have no keyboard? I'm interested in finding out how that works myself!
So then, I linked him to this topic.

Why?

CONSIDER READING THIS, PLEASE:
Don't write things someone already said. It's useless.
If you want to point a duplicate, please don't write just “Duplicate” when you don't have the link. At least say that you can't do it because -reasons-. Writing it and then going away does not help.
Don't write “I agree”, “this” or just quote without adding something constructive. It doesn't help.
No supporting because “you can do this elsewhere” is not a valid reason. If it was, the suggestion forum wouldn't exist because you can do everything elsewhere.
A simple workaround is not, never was and will never be a reason to no-support a suggestion. There are plenty of blocks with simple workarounds in Scratch right now, and there's a reason if the ST still added them.
No supporting because “it can turn into a competition” is not a reason, since it can happen everywhere (such as follows). Post count: 1900+

I think maybe a mobile keyboard will show up when you go to a project that requires buttons to be pressed.

I think that would be the most likely to be added into Scratch 3 if the Scratch Team had to choose between buttons, joysticks, and a mobile keyboard.

If this was added, it would be the only good thing about 3.0 awesome! Support!

I do not give my support to this suggestion.
Scratch is intended for use on desktop computers and laptops, tablets aren't at all the target market.

This suggestion can be optional.
If there is something in Scratch 3 that detects what browser/phone you are using, like this:
My browser / operating system: Android Linux 5.1.1, Chrome 68.0.3440.91, No Flash version detected
Then the option would be enabled. Otherwise, if something like this happens:
My browser / operating system: Windows NT 10.0, Chrome 68.0.3440.91, No Flash version detected
Then it would be disabled.
However, since the forums already have a phone/browser detector, this wouldn't be hard to implement in Scratch 3.

I got another idea for mobile controls: device orientation. This might be pretty useful in creating some really good racing games or puzzles, etc

(Device orientation l/r
Reset device orientation l/r
(Device orientation f/b)
Reset device orientation f/b
(Device orientation s/s)
Reset device orientation s/s

l/r = left/right
f/b = front/back
s/s = side-to-side

Scratch 3.0 targets tablets now; that's why the blocks are fatter.

Another suggestion has been implemented!

Oh my gosh I never thought about this!! I assume there would be a keyboard, but that might make the project interface even smaller…

If a keyboard gets added, there should be a button to toggle, since there shouldn't be an keyboard in an animation.

Another idea for this:
show [keyboard v] at x (0) y (0) :: sensing
hide [arrow keys v] :: sensing
I think it could have ‘keyboard’ (every key that's usable), ‘WASD’, ‘Arrow Keys’ ‘Arrow Keys/WASD + Space’, ‘Numpad’ and maybe a few others. This would probably take some time to get implemented, though.

USB-OTG (allowing you to use things like USB-Sticks, Mice and Keyboards with an Micro-USB to USB adapter on a smartphone) would be great for Scratch 3. This would allow for controlling projects with a real keyboard.
