    You can go to Settings, then Language and Input. There you can change your keyboard but you have Samsung or Swipe. Swiftkey as far as i can tell still won't work on the Note2 (for me anyway) i got mine from the AmazonApp Store. But you can get a couple from the Play store and test them out for free and see which one fits your style the best.

    Swiftkey doesn't work, really? That's disappointing, I hope they get that fixed.

    Swiftkey 3 from the play store worked fine for me as well. However I have been using the 4.2 keyboard and it's been even better.

    Thanks I'm Thinking then it may have to do with the Amazon Version. I will uninstall and install from the play store to see if it works for me

    Yea I don't know if its the version from Amazon or what because i got it when it was the free app of the day so its the full paid version but just from Amazon. I will report back later today.


    ok so I removed the SwiftKey App from the Amazon App Store. Installed the Free Version from the Play Store and it works no problem. So i will try to reinstall the Amazon App to see if it works now without removing the free one.

    I am finding that I'm using the S pen more and more to type with. I use it for Swype and I use it for handwriting recognition. I am really liking the alternatives.

    OK so I re-installed My Amazon SwiftKeyApp and it made me remove the Free one but it works now perfectly. So i don't know maybe it was a bad install the first time or what.
