Default Kii Keyboard - OMG! Watch out Swype & SwiftKey Flow!

There's a new sheriff in keyboard town and his name is Kii! I stumbled upon this program (thanks, Tom!) in a discussion about which was better - Swype or SwiftKey Flow. I had been a dedicated Swype user as it came pre-installed on my RAZR MAXX HD but then signed up for the SwiftKey Flow beta trial and had been using that for almost a month. I was getting ready to go back to Swype to get a better feel for which of two I like better when I stumbled on the thread here and a poster said he had recently found Kii, a new program in beta, and it was great. He was not kidding!

Kii has everything that both Swype and SwiftKey Flow have plus more. Word prediction, gestures, and it works in all types of fields (SKF doesn't work in certain types of fields). But the best thing is that you can customize it heavily. You can move the keyboard from one side to the other (called padding) which is great for people that swipe type with just their thumb. You can fully customize the keyboard's size, colors, spacing, and a whole lot more. You can use almost all aftermarket keyboard themes and skins. It seems to be a winner and it's still just in beta. As a beta program all the 'premium' features are turned on right now for free.

I thought this program deserved it's own thread to let others know about it and as a place to discuss the program and the things you find you can or can't do as well as any problems/solutions you find. I've only been using this program for a day and I can see myself going back to Swype of SKF any time soon. Check it out.
