    I think they have a beta version of swype but the original version doesn't have the option

    It's in beta. Called SwiftKey flow. So far it's ok. Needs some work. But at least it works like regular SwiftKey as well.

    I've been using stock as of late, but Swift key is the best aftermarket keyboard imo

    I tried swift key. Some keys are in areas that I'm not used to. I guess I'll have to play around with it more. Seemed more troublesome than the N4 keyboard.

    You do realize that just because a keyboard *can * do the gesture typing doesn't mean you have to use it right? I use the stock keyboard and turned off the gesture typing.

    Yes, but I just find the stock keyboard difficult to use. The spacing could be better between the keys. SwiftKey seems to have a better understanding of what I want to type.

    Fair enough. Just the way you had worded your request seemed odd.

    Tried Swiftkey. Not bad and I probably could use it if they introduced an option to turn of suggestions above the keyboard. But to be honest, stock has been great since ICS.

    Suggestions seem overwhelming at times. I agree.

    I tried using the stock keyboard when I got the Nexus 4, just to compare. Immediately put SwiftKey on. Can type so much faster with it. You really need to use it for a bit so it learns your typing style. Then the predictions become a lot more useful. And love the swipe to delete feature.

    Very true

    I think you can do this. Mess around with the options a bit. If you use "learn from" option, it will learn from your texts, email, Facebook and twitter how you type on each and the predictions will be tailored more towards words you often use and how you type. SwiftKey in my opinion is ahead of all the other keyboards I've used. They've won awards for that app.

    Why would you want to turn that off? That's the magic of the keyboard. It saves you tons of key strokes by using the predictions.

    from my experience if we are talking about "swype" style text input, the best to worst are: swype beta, swiftkey flow, stock. if we are talking about "tap to type" text input, the best to worst are: swiftkey flow, stock, swype beta.

    I'm a stock keyboard user. Tried swiftkey but just didn't feel I could type fast on it.

    For whatever reason I never got used yo the predictions either. I felt like I had to slow down to see what the three options were rather than just typing away naturally.

    it'll get better when swiftkey "learns" your style of typing.
