+1 swiftkey a proper clever app it knows what your going to type next but at 22 mb of ram its a bit heavy for me. Standard ics keyboard uses 10 mb

Who cares? I'd rather not type every key like on pc, when you have keyboard smart enough to REALLY predict what you gonna write. It also learns amazingly. I would not trade the great predictions SwiftKey has for any other keyboard. Once you have used it for some time you will see the real power of SwiftKey.

Written on my SwiftKey.

I used it every day for about 2 mths. I than started installing more apps and realised i cared more about performance than how good a app is.

Another recent convert to Touchpal. Great "swype" alternative, very responsive and "learns" your words so good predictive ability. I used to use GO keyboard but I got annoyed with the almost daily pop-ups for updates and add-ons and other promo/notifications.

I have tried: android stock GB, ICS, - swift kbd, swipe kbd, and finaly market underrated smartkeyboard pro. Smart keyboard gives you pretty much all the keyboards you mentioned abovem you can have htc, iphone, blah blah, or plain custom skinned one, configured to your liking, you can make keys far apart, less apart, choose tons of stuff if you wish to, kbd rulez. I cant even type properly on default android kbd no more, smart kbd made me a snob. You can try a demo. Out of all talk regarding android kbd being smart and learning - this one is the only one that learns anything useful. Note that I dont use prediction since I type fast and precise. I canot comment in that regard, I can only say that swift kbd did an outstanding job with that until I disabled it.

edit: if you like predictions and just smashing the screen, swift is the best. It can learn words from all your sources and it sometimes predicts your goddamn thoughts. Prediction is so damn good that it makes typing boring. It's not free thou but if you are a prediction addict and a screen smasher, I can recommend it. i payed for the full and it does more then they advertize it does. Damn thing is a mind reader. This edit was typed by using it, for fun. I can't spell correctly ( <- that) some of these words, I just click s*** that it recommends (auto complete is disabled)

PS. I haven't tried swipe kbds (I did but didn't actually used swipe), my native language is not english so they are no-go for me. I am commenting keyboards that you have to tap on.

Could someone give a beginner advice on how to uninstall the stock version of Touchpal. I want to put on new version but heard it is best to take off the one that came on phone originally. Where do I go to find the APK file to delete- or can you post url please maximus9 of how of how to do this? You mention this above but cannot find the topic. Thanks

Personally, I prefer a slide keyboard, and of all of them, I like Swype best - for me its the most intuitive and accurate, and just "feels" right. I also light the clarity of the keys. Kii is a close second, but needs a lot of customising to get it "comfortable" for my personal taste. . The default gesture-enabled keyboard in 4.2 is good, if you're running a rom that supports it. Just didn't like touchpal,can't really say why.

I love the touchpal keyboard, but I have touchpal curve turned off, as then I can just swipe down on letters to get symbols. Its a lot faster than things like swype, especially if you want symbols as you have to hold the lettter down for a second, and this is REALLY slow! Also, with touchpal, I can boast to say that I can enter 250 characters a minute too :P

^^ +1

on win mobile this was the standard feature even for the default keyboard, and coming over to android every single one except touchpal felt like it was designed for people with disabilities... although still missing the gesture left for backspace, and gesture right for space - with those two buttons gone there would be even more room for others, why is android keyboard design a step backward from 10 years ago?

I use swiftkey4 and I'm trying to get used to using Flow. I love it, but it often enters a wrong word which is frustrating.

I really love Swype, I think it's fantastic. Very intuitive (for me) and smooth and fast. No lagging here (I'm running Stock+ custom ROM).

I've used Smartkeyboard pro on my last two phones and really like it but since moving to the Nexus 4 I've been using Swiftkey and I think I'll probably stay with it now, the flow can be a bit hit and miss but the word prediction is great.

I'm sticking with Swype. Keep trying others, but always come back to it, and the released non-beta is running solid, stable, fast and reliable.

No. It's 65p, but there's a free trial. Try going to Google Play and searching - that's what the rest of us do.

If you want a different app then yes! People are saying which keyboard they prefer. There are many free alternatives, kii is quite good, but the existence of several paid apps would indicate that there is a market for keyboards with added features or functionality. Most have a free trial, or at the very worst you can purchase, and if you don't like within 15 minutes you can get a refund. You certainly make things a hell of a lot more complicated than they need to be.

Anyone know if you can download the keyboard from CM 10 on google play? I'm pretty sure I've seen the same Jellybean keyboard on the play store but I just can't remember what it was called.
