what keyboard do you use on your android phone?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

there are a lot of keyboards for android out there, there is stock google keyboards for every OS [2.2, 2.3, 3.0, 4.0, etc], there is the dreadful swype keyboard *shrugs* i hate it, there is also manufacturer specific like LG, there are also a bunch of 3rd party keyboards like go keyboard.

my favorite so far is android 2.3 from the app store, i have had it on 4 phones of varying screen sizes and i absolutely love it, comparing it to swype is like night and day. its very responsive, has the best text prediction [in my opinion] and feels really natural. i am going to try a few more like ice cream sandwich, jelly bean and swiftkey 3

whats your favorite?

I've been using the default gingerbread keyboard for over a year thinking it was Swiftkey :D . I apparently messed up the installation somehow but never noticed since there weren't any issues at all with it. At least the money went into the app development hopefully.

If you want to try a free keyboard, the Kii Keyboard is in beta with all it's features enabled and it seems really solid.

Not sure where my comment went but yes, it does look like the one in the appstore.

I can't remeber me using anything but Swype. I've tested several keyboards but swype is just the best, specifically if you hate having to use two hands in order to type fast.

I quite like the default Swype actually, having a Nexus 7 it's rather difficult to type like a regular phone, so it seems to be a lot easier that way. I've just installed SwiftKey Flow to see how it differs though, so I'm not sure if I'll stay with Swype or not.

I tried using SwiftKey, along with many other keyboards, but I always end up with the same conclusion. The stock Xperia keyboard is a lot better than anything else, in my opinion.

I use SwiftKey, but I just wish they allow to make your own themes because the stock ones are horrible...

I'm using SwiftKey 3 but trying our Swiftkey Flow this weekend. IMO it depends on what typing style you like. If you are a thumb typer, like I am, regular SwiftKey is great with it's prediction. But if you like to type with one finger, Swiftkey flow isn't bad. It's still a beta and needs some work though.

I agree. The stock themes are horrible.

Swiftkey is so awesome! In would say it is by far the best keyboard on the market and it gets better an better, the more you use it. Definitely worth giving it a try!

I used Swipe and then switched to Swiftkey 3. Now I'm back to Swipe.

Don't get me wrong, I like Swiftkey 3 but I just miss "typing" with one finger. I do get more typo in Swipe since I usually 'over-swipe' the letters.

Swiftkey is the best mobile keyboard, period. It's pretty good from the beginning, but it only improves as you use it. I literally don't even have to look at my phone when typing a text out. For a touch keyboard, that's pretty unheard of, and I deeply missed not having to look when I had a phone with a physical keyboard.

I still check my text after I'm typing to fix the odd wrong word or if I missed a letter and it caused it to not detect the auto-correct, but easily 9/10 full text messages are perfect without looking while I type.
