    Default What is your keyboard preference?

    Which keyboard do you use. I do not like slide it or swype.

    I don't mind Swype, but I use a modification of the HTC keyboard a lot too. It has the arrow keys removed and you can customize the button size and the popup delay.

    you should try shapewriter.


    same idea as swype but much better in my opinion.

    its not in the market anymore though

    Swype hands down. I used to hate it, but then one day I started using it. Ever since then I can't go back to a regular keyboard.

    Can't stand Swype at all. I was using Keyboard For Android which was a GB style but could customize it from skins to the size of the keys to the amount of space between keys. Now I'm using stock 2.3.4 keyboard.

    I like better keyboard because there's no need to press spacebar

    For text or email, I use Swype, in large part because I can type as fast with one hand as I can with two hands on other input methods. If I'm taking notes at conferences, etc, I prefer Swiftkey.

    Just entirely depends on what I need, but Swype is my day to day keyboard.

    You can go into settings and do this with the stock keyboard.

    You know - this is a great question. I'm not completely psyched about any of the keyboard options that I have tried so far. As the lesser of the evils, I use Swype because it's soooo fast to pound out messages.

    However, what would I really WANT in a keyboard?
    * Multitouch - much like the stock GB keyboard works
    * 10-key numpad when I hit the number key
    * No stupid arrows at the bottom
    * Dedicated voice button on the keyboard
    * Fast and lightweight
    * Swypelike functionality

    For some reason, that 10-key thing seems to be the one that is missing so much...

    My phone downloaded an update for Swiftkey Beta, and now when I try to do anything with my phone, it has a pop-up that says "The application Android keyboard (process com.android.inputmethod.latin) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." I have rebooted my phone but that didn't help. Has anyone else seen this or know how to fix it?

    I like 8pen.

    Its different and once you adjust to the new style of typing its really fast and swift. Im pretty damn fast at it now too

    Tried a few. Do not like Swype.

    My favorite thurfar is Swiftkey although I see it is going out of beta and will have to pay for predictions to continue.

    I will have to try keyboard 8. Haven't heard of that one yet!

    I use slideIT. As of Today I've been using Swiftkey X because it is given away for free today on Amazon apps. (They give away one free paid app a day)

    I love Swype, been using it since last August, but decided to give SwiftKey X a try since it was offered for free on Amazon today. I must say I'm pretty impressed at how well it can predict what you want to type, and it definitely learns fast. I have to fight the urge to start swiping as soon as the keyboard pops up, but I like it so far.

    I have the same problem with the swipe part as well. But I am liking Swiftkey X.

    Swiftkey X by far. Tried Swype for awhile but I spent so much time correcting words that it didn't end up being any faster. Well worth the price IMO. They have a version for tablets too.
