The keyboard will run good when it's initially installed for me then shortly after when I pull up a text im waiting for the keyboard to pop up while the app is stalled momentarily compared to stock or swiftkey. Also if I'm typing really fast the keyboard starts to hang with mini freezes. I thought at first install on the moto x that I finally had a phone that can handle the keyboard (coming from nexus 4) but seems to be the same

I like Swiftkey- especially the themes. But I tried Swype shortly after and I personally am faster and more accurate with Swype. So that's what I'm using now.
There's a few things I wish I could customize about both but they're both great apps.
Swiftkey is amazing at *next* word prediction, but I don't like how it handles punctuation (!.?) Plus I ended up with double spaces and more incorrect words.
Swype is the best at swipe typing.
Try the trials of a couple of apps, I'm sure one will fit your style.

Personally I agree with using the stock keyboard. I'm a gesture typist and I find it's accuracy with that method to be better than swiftkey, though swiftkey's word prediction and tap accuracy were better when I used it that way. I definitely like the customization options of swiftkey so I keep trying it out occasionally.

I'm a Swype user but got frustrated with it not recognising words so I am trying Swiftey on the 1m free trial. I don't think it is any better to be honest, so I probably won't be buying it. I will be upgrading from Note 1 to Note 3 next month anyway, I wonder if it's free on that phone? "Swyping" is the way to go for any phone keyboard if they can improve the word prediction. I never use the stylus. It's too much of a hassle to extract it from the phone.

I like the stock keyboard and SwiftKey. My issue with SwiftKey is that sometimes it is OVER aggressive with the prediction. Changing " Dan" to " Dad" and "of" to "if" and things like that. I would understand if those weren't real words, but if I type a real word, I wish they'd just leave it.

SwiftKey is what I'm currently using.
Swype had a better keyboard, but it has one major deal-breaker. They don't use Google for their voice dictation. They use dragon. It's horrible compared to Google.

SlideIT works wonderfull on it. I had it on my old Optimus S and CM10 on my Touchpad, and it was, kinda crappy. The new version 7 on this phone is smooth and works really well. I hardly remember my old keypad on my Pre and Treo's I owned and used over the last 10 years. (added wave launcher and the phone is close to my old Pre 2 Only thing missing is swiping to go back and to cards multiasker).
I have the SlideIT using the stock keyboard and the sliding action and word predictibilty works quite well. There very few times I had to correct it. It was more accurate than my screen pressing or using text to speech.
I now feel the purchase of that app 30 moths ago is worth it now.
