Different Keyboard? But none from the market
Hi all. Im gonna say I have tried every keyboard in the market and there just not as quick as the OEM keyboard. The only problem with the Moto keyboard is that the keys are to thin. My fingers arent huge, but any body would mispell words on if if they were typing fast.
Anyone know of maybe a custom keyboard that people or a person has made based off of the oem keyboard? I wouldnt mind having the factory keyboard if the keys were just a little bit wider. I have the Gingerbread keyboard, Swift Key, Smart Keyboard Pro and I tried another. There just not as on point and quick with pop ups as the oem keyboard. Any advice anyone? Thanks guys.
Gotta make the keys quick for these increased upload speeds

I see. All these keyboards you can skin them like an iphone keyboard, but they still cant compete lol. I remember a guy on XDA who goes by Enraggedpaza. He made skinned versions of the Droid X 2.2 Multitouch keyboard. And I remember that was pretty on poine. I might have to check it out. Ill post back and see how that one works out. Hes got them in all different colors.

Im in the same boat as you, i have tried them all...i have "A.I type keyboard" from the marketplace and todays update says added option to adjust key sizes, havent tried it yet but you should check it out. I think it may just be a height option but worth a look.

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.betterandroid.betterkeyboard&feature=search_result ever since I got tired of Swype (after about day 3). I think the speed is comparable to that of the stock keyboard but I honestly haven't used that thing a single time.
If you try this one, I'd highly recommend turning off the right to left swipe to activate compact qwerty (you'll see it hiding in the setting). It allows you to swipe the screen from right to left to pop up a compact qwerty keyboard and I found the slightest drag of the finger would cause it to pop up.
I think Ive tried BetterKeyboard before and it didnt work as fast. Im using that A.I Keyboard now. Its not bad and actually works pretty good. But its still just not as quick. Motos factory one is the quickest and most on point. Its just to Thin in Portrait mode. And even the modified keyboards on XDA use the modified Droid keyboard. Which without flashing the file, it says the file is already installed. heh. Ill get it eventually.

Atrix 4G ROM Installation Guide - BriefMobile
skip down to part three and at step 16 instead of choosing a "greyblur/gingerblur" .zip, pick the keyboard .zip
Here is the link for the keyboard.http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1039763 Its towards the bottom and labeled gingerbread-keyboard.zip (its too big of a file for me to upload)
If you dont see the keyboard selection after flashing, reboot your phone.
Oh and sorry there isn't an .apk to sideload that i know of :/

Alright this is weird. Im trying to locat the apk file I just sideloaded and I did in Root Explorer. But its a zip file? It wont let me install it for some reason.
Nevermind. Something happened and everything restarted again. now I have to manually fix everything lol. And the keyboard file is not working for some reason now.
