    What are you guys using? I e used SwiftKey forever but gave the stock Google one a shot and really liked it.

    Only reason I put the SwiftKey back on was the #'s on top row and I like the question mark option on the "." key where you can swipe to the right and get a "?"

    I don't swipe (I've tried it, but just can't get the hang of it), but I use Swiftkey without the number row on top (I can long-press a key easily enough). I can make do with the stock keyboard if I have to, but I'm more comfortable with Swiftkey - know where all the long-press characters are, the spacing of the keys, etc.

    SwiftKey for me. It has given me no reason to try another keyboard.

    I've been using Swype since it's beta days and now use the paid version. I set up my wife with the google KB on her Maxx. I'm so used to "swyping" that it find it hard to peck on a normal KB.

    Big Swiftkey fan. Lots of customization, including all of the sizing and style options and the aforementioned number row. I also think that their word predictions are better, but that could be bias talking.

    I use hacker's keyboard. I like the arrow keys and the Ctrl and Alt keys.

    I've used SwiftKey ever since it came out. I'll never use another keyboard.

    I am the rare person that actually prefers Google Keyboard (stock). It just works well, great auto correct and I love the key positioning.

    I don't Swype either. I turned it off in case my finger accidentally slides across the keyboard.

    For all you SwiftKey guys, how is it the paid version themes, if you've used?

    I've never had any need to look any further than Swiftkey. I love its number row, auto-correct, intuitive learning and swyping when I chose. There may be better options but I've never had the need to look. It's not just its autocorrect, but its intuitive learning of my writing style and memory of past words and phrases that I use.

    They have, a lot of great options for the theme of the keyboard to match your them of your phone. I think, that it's worth taking a look at it.

    I use SwiftKey. I like the number row and easy symbol access. I coach track and text or type a lot of times/distances so quick access to : and - are very handy. The learning is great to as I don't have to type out whole words. The swiping works well too when one handed.

    SwiftKey all the way here. When I got my first Android a year and a half ago, I came from 7 years of BlackBerry physical keyboards on various models. Nothing compares to that as a typing experience, but SwiftKey is the best for me for typing on glass.

    I've tried other options (Fleksy, etc.) along the way just to compare, and always wind up back with SwiftKey quickly.

    I've been using Swype since the beta days as well. I've tried many others, including swiftkey, but keep coming back to Swype. Only thing I wish it had is an arrow row, but long pressing to get to it isn't a deal breaker

    Thanks for reminding me. That's another huge plus for Swiftkey

    I've used and loved Swype since it's beta days, but got frustrated over its lack of emojis, so when I got my Turbo I tried, the standard keyboard and find it astonishingly just as good for me as Swype was. I've got it set up to convert to a version with a dedicated number row when I need it, which I couldn't do with Swype.

    I wish they didn't have a separate installation for the Beta version. Especially since SwiftKey's Beta has had some genuine cool features to test out in advance. That SwiftKey and Chrome do this bugs me. My phone already has enough "extra" stuff without carrying two versions of big apps.

    I did this, and the implementation was rather painful. I don't use swiftkey (presently), so I can't compare their numbers row to the implementation in the goggle keyboard, but the google implementation was definitely not for me, and based on other user's remarks, that seems to be the general consensus.

    I am a SwiftKey user, it's been a few years now and I have tried others but I always come back, now on my nexus 7 I do not like SwiftKey for tablets, using the Google keyboard set pc style. In this configuration the numbers are on the top row.
