    Do you know what the best Android touch screen app is for typing speed?

    I've seen the world record holder (106 wpm; way slower than my computer typing speed) using fleksy, but he wasn't allowed to use autocomplete, so there might be other apps that allows one to type faster. In your opinion, what's the best Android app for speed typing?

    Google Speech to Text if you speak clearly. I use SwiftKey but I am not trying to speed type.

    Yes, I know. And it's a great suggestion. I am experimenting with it, although right now I am looking for the winning keyboard for speed typing.

    I like Adaptxt - learns as you type, plus they have a lot of themes/customizations

    For "Speed Typing" you should use swype keyboard and only swype!
    Is Swype better than Swftkey Flow? If so, why?

    Also curious -since you can swipe using Swiftkey, Adaptxt and other keyboards. What's the difference?

    I think it really boils down to the individual user.

    SwiftKey for me because I've been used to it for a long time although the capitalization of random words frustrates me every now and then...

    Defiantly Minuum!

    Try « Minuum ». It's my favourite and its accuracy is amazing. It's also only one row of letters. The accuracy of its auto-correct coupled with its small but convenient size allow you to type at amazing speeds.

    According to me Google Keyboard is fast, it looks simpler and works smoothly. So I recommend this one.

    I have barely begun testing, but here are the first results. I have been using a QWERTY keyboard before, so I am not used to typing on any of these keyboards.

    To measure how well they perform, I use Firefox and go to 10fastfingers. The score is the best of my attempts. The parenthesis in keystrokes is how many characters were correct and mistyped.

    HTC Sense Input score
    31 WPM. Three attempts.
    Keystrokes: 171 (157 | 14)

    Swiftkey score
    WPM 38. One attempt.
    Keystrokes: 249 (189 | 60)

    Swype score
    WPM 35
    Keystrokes 261 (173 | 88)

    QWERTY on Desire Z. Over 60 wpm. No errors. One attempt.

    No one seems to have mentioned Touch Pal so I guess I will. I switched from SwiftKey to Touch Pal as SwiftKey lagged a lot for me. Turns out it was a problem with the swipe gesture. After turning off Swipe, it worked fine. However, I prefer Touch Pal's customizations over SwiftKey's.

    Swiftkey looks and performs best in my opinion.

    Lol sometimes I swear I'm the only one that uses TouchPal. Thank you for mentioning it. I love the copy paste feature on TouchPal and find the swype feature MUCH more accurate

    i use Minuum too and i love it.
    At the beginning it wasnt easy but if you give it a try and stick to it you'll get fast

    Try « Minuum ». It's my favourite and its accuracy is amazing. It's also only one row of letters. The accuracy of its auto-correct coupled with its small but convenient size allow you to type at amazing speeds.

    I've made a list of keyboards by popularity. If some popular and relevant keyboards are missed, then shout out.

    And here are keyboards by rating.

    Best Keyboard for Speed Typing?-keyboards.png

    The impression I have so far is that:
    SwiftKey seems to have the best prediction.
    Swype seems to have the fastest speech to text functionality.
    Fleksy has the most clean layout, and invisible keyboard is also an option (good on small screens, when you know the touch method)

    In the following months I will compare these for speed:

    • Google keyboard
    • Swype
    • SwiftKey
    • Fleksy
    • HTC standard keyboard
    • Chilli Bluetooth keyboard

    With and without gesture typing, and will also be checking out the speech to text speed.

    Are there any better sites/apps to use to measure the speed and accuracy than 10fastfingers.com?
