    Not to crap on OP, but there is what seems to be a newer version over on Rootz. The differences I notice are a thicker trace line and the word that pops up when swiping is formatted differently.

    EDIT:
    Upon further use, prediction doesn't show up properly, making the keyboard nearly useless.

    Even though this keyboard doesn't have a functional word prediction the way we would like it I still find it a nice alternative for those who came from Swype. I would stick it out with Swype personally but since the JB update the auto spacing when posting here in the forums or typing in an email, etc. is broken and thats a no go for me. Let me clarify I know auto spacing works in some situations but since I use Dolphin browser and its broken autospacing this is a nice "working" alternative.

    Overall not a bad attempt IMO by Google for a stock keyboard.

    I like it closest thing to swype I've found actually think it's better, but I'll reserve that judgement till I've used it a little longer

    The latest version of the 4.2 keyboard is very impressive!



    Brought to you by the Google Galaxy Nexus. It IS better than the iPhone 5.

    This keyboard is great, but it still needs secondary functions on the main keyboard. I will probably use Swiftkey Flow when it comes out.

    I've downloaded the second link (updated keyboard) from the dropbox but it comes as a .zip How can I get it onto my phone like an apk? I put it on the root of my internal SD card and when i when into CWM, it wouldn't install it..

    Suggestions?

    Manually flash into recovery, work your way to the zip file and have at it. Enjoy.

    Ok, since no one is asking about the elephant in the room, I will.

    Keyboards can be very dangerous. Bad guys making bad rogue keyboards can capture keystrokes. Not good.

    So, it begs the question: How do we know this isn't a rogue keyboard put in the wild to capture our valuable user IDs and passwords?

    I'm not trying to be snarky here, just cautious.
    Do you know how absurd this sounds?

    I would have to imagine that making a gesture based keyboard takes quite awhile, and more time than a rouge app maker would spend to gain nearly no solid harmful info.

    Yes, but it probably Epiphany be that time consuming to grab the leaked keyboard and hack a keylogger into it. Just playing devil's advocate.

    Installed the new keyboard by putting the apk from the zip into the system/apps folder. AOSP keyboard works fine but when I try to switch back to the original it gets stuck in a force close loop. Only way to stop this is to switch back to the AOSP keyboard. Anyone know what I did wrong?

    EDIT: Reinstalled using CWM and now everything works like it should.

    When doing that you need to fix permissions.

    I had to go a different route to get the keyboard to work. I flashed the zip and went to language & inputs but it said that both Google keyboards were chosen but the 4.1.2 was the one that was working. I had to open the keyboard and long press on the space bar and chose the 4.2 keyboard from that list.

    That's what I had to do. Only thing difference is that mine says English US Keyboard, not 4.2. Actually works pretty good, using it to type this now.

    What version is this? How do you get the word suggestion all big on the left?

    Edit: or is this the dynamic floating preview?
    I'm still not liking it as much as Swype.... Swype seems to guess my words better. I live I live I jump I kill - at least it capitalizes I now.
