Whenever I type with the stock keyboard I'm constantly making mistakes. When I use swift key, it's pretty much the same but slightly better. Just wondered after a while would swift key get better with my typing as I use it more, ie it learning how I type?

I've used SwiftKey for awhile now. Works great for me. One thing I did notice is within the built in email app, the space bar jumps back one space and leads to typos. Seems like it only happens at the beginning of the email. Very small issue imo. Love SwiftKey

Thanks so does it get better with learning experience?
Referring to SwiftKey, which I've used for years. It does learn from your typing, so the longer you use it, the better it predicts word choices for you. I often find I never have to type or slide out words. Entire sentences can be selected from the word bar.

Is this a new phone to you? It could simply boil down to being a muscle memory thing with the lack of tactile feedback on a touch screen. When I switch phones, I find myself making mistakes, even using Swype and it's usually great for "absorbing" goofy swipes. But over time I get better and can sometimes swipe out an entire text without looking at the screen.

I just started to use SwiftKey and is definitely better then the original keyboard especially because I type in two languages.
