Italian computer keyboards have extra symbols and keys compared to their US counterparts, yet they still don't cover all Italian accented letters (e.g. "È"). Considering that space is even more of a premium on mobile devices, does it make sense to add numerous symbols, when a majority of Italian writers isn't even sure about when to put a grave accent, an acute accent, an apostrophe, or no sign at all? The Cloanto system needs as little as an apostrophe key. Given that even in languages such as English the apostrophe has a higher frequency of occurrence than the letters X, J, Q and Z, shouldn't this key always be present anyway?
