    Default Can I hack my android keyboard theme???

    Hey gang, sorry for starting my first post here with a question, but I've been looking for a solution for over a day now and I'm not getting anywhere, so I figured I'd "bite the bullet" and ask. I have a peculiar dilemma in that I got the paid version of Swype for my phone and love the theme I am using there, but for some reason it looks different on my 7" tablet, and actually NONE of the Swype themes really look good on the tablet. Let me just say I'm referring to the color scheme more than any other feature of the actual keyboard. So I am just wondering if I can "hack" a theme from the Go keyboard or Swift Key, which have ample themes that I like, to use with Swype? I remember from my avid video game days that you could hack or import "skins" across different "platforms," and I just thought it might be applicable here. Really not a big deal I know, but seeing as I payed for the thing you'd think I could find a theme for the keyboard that I like, lol. Thanks in advance, Vin.

    Hard to say. You might be able to, but, what you add to the app may break it.

    Oh sorry if I said swipe I meant slide it keyboard and it's a really good swiping kb. I tried them all before I landed on this a yr ago. Liked it so much I went premium. Which u might have to in order to customize. Sorry I misread. But I love my slide it kb and it is gr8 at learning new words 4 ur personal dict too altho after KK update my personal dictionary was wiped. Even tho I did a reset n backed up/restored from kies. Ugh. O well. Oh also u can change the size of ur kb and add various symbol menus etc. It's well worth the premium dl imo

    It's like 3.99 after the trial. And they have good support. One of the reasons I like it is cuz it has optional arrow keys u can dock if u want. They did an update and I couldn't find them and I emailed them and srsly got a response in like an hour!

    Thanks to both of you for the responses as it looks like you are talking about the same thing. I guess I'll have to check out the keyboard first and then take a look at the customizer.
