I was wondering if anyone can comment on the use of swiftkey on the Moto X. On my galaxy nexus there seems to be a delay (anything from 5 to 10 sec) before the keyboard appears.

Meh. It's probably because the Galaxy Nexus needs to lose 10% of it's power to launch the keyboard. ;)

Seems pretty normal to me.

I would, however, recommend tweaking the haptics timing. (Go to Sound & Vibration>Keypress vibration duration.) I've got mine set about 15ms.

I use SwiftKey and the response from selecting the input field to when the keyboard appears to begin typing is 1 second or less. My GNex would typically be 2-3 seconds.

This! Swiftkey works well, but you need to adjust the vibration duration. I've set mine at 25ms.

can anyone chime in as to what the default value is on stock google keyboard is? When you slide to "default" it doesnt show the ms value. For some reason, it seems less than when the phone was fresh, perhaps after loading my apps something took over. Just curious what stock is......but I may try swift key even though stock seems decent. Thanks!

I am pretty sure the default is 10ms.

I can't comment on Swiftkey, but i've been a Swype user since my Droid X and Swyping is faster and smoother on the Moto X than any other phone i've used. So far there has been nothing slow about this phone.

For people like me, who didn't know where this was,..Settings>Language & Input>Swiftkey>Sound and Vibration>Keypress vibration duration.

Is anyone having a problem with the vibration feedback being delayed? When I type it is delayed for very short time but it is very annoying.
