    When I first got my phone I used swiftkey for about a day but the stock keyboard just looks more professional. Swiftkey looks cheap no matter what keyboard skin you use.
    What do you guys think ?

    I am using Android L keyboard on an M7. Stock keyboard was ok and google keyboard is what I used the most. Tried swiftkey and did not like it. Installed Android L keyboard and I like it the most. It's not on the play store anymore so if you want it you will have to find the APK on the net and sideload it.

    Fleksy was good but had no Swype support. Enjoyed the gestures.

    I've tried other keyboards but I keep going back to SwiftKey. It gets better the more you use it as it learns from your history.

    I always find myself back with using Google keyboard. Never had a problem with it. It also has a "Swype" function that has worked perfectly during the few times I used it, and its always enabled. Wasn't a fan of Swiftkey for some reason.

    SwiftKey hands down. After a few weeks of learning all the jacked up stuff I type, it practically reads my mind.

    I think many people use SwiftKey for a few days, and give up on it. You really need to give it several weeks to give it a chance to learn your writing style.

    Also, are you letting SwiftKey learn from your SMS messages, Facebook, email, etc? That helps a bunch, too.

    I used for the full 30 day trial a while back, and I just didn't care for some of the implementations. Can't remember what exactly because it's been so long. I've been the official Swype keyboard. It too has its works, but they were more tolerable for me then Swift Key.

    Google Keyboard is my favorite 3rd party keyboard.

    SwiftKey has a new version & it is now free. Give it another try. My favorite new feature is a number row.

    SwiftKey is my favourite because it's predictions are eerily accurate and the corrections so good that you can confidently type while drunk. Also it seems to use the same algorithms as the new BlackBerry 10 virtual keyboard.

    It just doesn't look professional enough to use swift key on such a well designed device like the M8

    I use the Nickel theme on SwiftKey and it has a minimal look that looks like everything else. Please explain what a "professional" look for a keyboard looks like. We're waiting.

    Same exact reason why I don't use it, it looks kinda immature to me.

    Well there's no need to be mean about it lol. It suits the structure of the phone. It looks mature and it is reasonably well structured. As good as swiftkey it makes me a bit lazy with regards to typing. End up losing the skill and typing anywhere to get words up !
