    Default Replacement keyboard apps

    As the thread says. What would be best replacement keyboard apps for galaxy note 2. I've used swiftkey exclusively on all other phones. Would swiftkey or the tablet version work best?

    I use SwiftKey 3 and I absolutely love it. It is easy to type on, especially with the screen being so big.

    SwiftKey 3 in my opinion is the best. It's not free, but for the $3 or so it cost it will be worth every penny.

    It learns your writing style and will suggest words based on your unique style. It saves the user so much time.

    Swiftkey is very popular, but the stock android keyboard in 4.2 is extremely good as well and free.

    Yeah I have swiftkey x for phone and tablet version. Wonder which would work best with ny note2. I enjoy the stock keyboard as well, but just wish for a few more customization options

    I love the stock keyboard(jellybean, not touchwiz) , but just tried swiftkey and I'm loving this. Seems like it's formatted a little better on the gnote. Easier to type on for some reason

    Personally I'm obsessed with Swype. First time using it and it's amazing.

    Try both SwiftKey and Swipe since you can get both for free. I like SwiftKey best but only because I feel I'm typing faster using two thumbs than I do one finger.

    Using Swiftkey 3 here. Mostly awesome.
    I kind of miss the phone automatically going into handwriting recognition mode with the S Pen out.

    As a side note, I also miss the default keyboard's dedicated row for numbers.

    SwiftKey 3 is the bomb for two thumb typing.

    I didn't do too much handwriting with the pen to make me miss this.

    Agreed. This could be a big moment for some to skip it and go back to default keyboard. Im still on the fence about it.

    LOVE SwiftKey as a keyboard. Do not have the Note II yet, but probably will stick with SwiftKey.

    I did read an article where the author was saying he using the handwriting to do all of his texting. Interested in giving it a shot.

    The handwriting recognition is pretty darned good on this device. And the virtual ink they chose in combination with the way the pen feels on the screen is a joy.

    been a swift key user forever. love, love, love it. but the dedicated number row has won me over. in my business i type numbers almost as frequently as text, so holding the key or entering number mode was always a pain. Sticking with the built in keyboard, until swift key adds a dedicated number row (my guess is they will)

    +1 for Swiftkey

    The stock keyboard is also pretty good but I kept going back to Swiftkey.

    The beta with flow is pretty goog too!

    I too have SwiftKey for both phone and tablet. Best keyboard Imo, i do miss the dedicated number row from stock. Wish SwiftKey had that as option instead of arrow dedicated.
