On my previous devices I always used Swiftkey but on this device, typing with Swiftkey just doesn't seem responsive at all so I went back to the stock ICS keyboard.

Does anyone have keyboard suggestions?

Thanks

Every person has there different opinion on the keyboard, but I love using swype. You have to download it from the swype website, as its still beta. It can be a bit laggy at times

The JellyBean keyboard seems really nice to me. Just look for an APK of it as I don't think it's on the market.

TouchPal is the best in my opinion, I'm typing on it right now and Swiping across the keyboard is just so easy that I can't really understand why everyone doesn't use it.

Although AI Type Keyboard is also very good.

I've been using the HTC keyboard for the last few years. There is a apk floating around that installs a modified version for use on gingerbread and ics. Best keyboard out there in my opinion.

Can you find a link please? I can't seem to find one that works... all they do is force close

My touchpal keeps turning off for some reason so I got fed up and used the normal stock one. Think I prefer stock as touch pal would try and guess my next word and get it wrong.

I'm using Swype and it's pretty good. Was using SwiftKey 3 prior to it but it's not very good on ICS on the G300 for some reason.

Wouldn't mind stock touchpal again either. Play version dictionary is rubbish. Swype exactly the same flaw. Shame I paid for it :( lol
Stock gingerbread was great for ages, then the dictionary went haywire for some strange reason, so I moved to swiftkey. Odd layout, so I'm now trying the htc mod which seems pretty nice and works very well.
