    Default Google keyboard vs sense 5 keyboard.

    I just downloaded it and it seems to have bigger buttons so I can be more accurate. But now I have to kind of get used to it.

    The screen shots I saw before showed down arrow keys which I like but I don't see it on mine.

    Any opinions on or advice in this new keyboard?

    I've never had arrow's on my Google Keyboard, on my N7, N4... Only on my HTC One X and my moms HTC (idk old a** phone)..'s default keyboard.. On my One X with the Google KB, doesnt show up either.

    I'm testing it out now too. So far I like it better, seems less cluttered and better predictions.

    As for the arrow keys, I don't see any option for them in the settings menu.

    I just looked at the pictures in the play store, I think your mistaking the home, back, and multitasking buttons for arrow keys.

    I like having the arrow (navigation) keys you get with HTC.

    I was not happy with its predictions at first compared to Swiftkey until I changed the auto correct to aggressive. Since then though it has actually been really great.

    Is there any emoji? And anyone know the difference between normal/aggressive/very aggressive autocorrect settings?

    yes there's emoji. I greatly prefer Google's version, although it's not officially available in Switzerland yet and autocorrect underlines all German words although word suggestion works fine

    first thing I did was enable ducking obscene words.

    I got as far as Google Keyboard Settings > Add-on Dictionaries > Emoji for English Words

    but no idea how to switch to it or if this is even a keyboard.

    I would expect Emoji to appear as an 'input language' but no sign of it.

    just found the way to do this:

    it's not very intuitive or even good.

    Thinking about giving this keyboard a try for a few days to see if I like it. I have Swiftkey as well. But I have been wanting the Google Keyboard for some time...Not I can test it.

    No you don't. To get to common ones, you just hold the "period" key and scroll to the one you want. It's actually a good feature and really easy to see!

    hope Google don't kill this project, although then I'd be left with no way to complain.

    I tried it yesterday. Last night while trying to type an email it started injecting a lot of strange characters at random into my email as I typed. I couldn't get it to stop! I had to go back into the keyboard setttings, pick the htc keyboard and when I went back all was good. I finished the email with no problems.

    No sure if some other process was interfering or if it was the keyboard itself.

    it does look like with the obscenity filter disabled it will only offer the obscenity as a *suggested* word, i.e. it will NEVER allow a swearword as the automatically chosen word.
