Default Android Keyboard

Hey,

I just got a Galaxy S3 and I love it so far, had a iPhone 4s before i traded it for the S3. My only real complaint with it is the keyboard is a pain in the ass, i hate the predictive text. Is there any keyboard app out there that is similar to the iPhone or Blackberry? When i say that i mean, it doesn't have predictive text and it has spell correct, like a red line under a word that is wrong?

One of the best things about Android are the plethora of keyboards available. I'm sure a search of the Play Store will yield what you're looking for. However, I want to strongly encourage you to not try to match the iPhone experience on your GSIII. There are so many better ways to input text than the standard QWERTY way. I highly recommend SWYPE (not in the Play Store) and 8pen as examples of how to do things BETTER.

Go to system settings -> Language and input -> Select the keyboard. Scroll down to Auto correction, you can turn it off there. Then you don't even need to worry about a 3rd party keyboard.

Yep. Just turn off auto-correct and leave prediction on. It will still show you suggestions on possible spellings of the words you are trying to type, but it will not try to replace it after you hit space. No need for an extra keyboards. Although I still do prefer Swype. Its built in into Samsung phones anyway.

Smart Keyboard Pro is the closest one to iPhone's keyboads, it's paid but you can try the trial version (see Google Play Store).

And here is a list of other keyboards: Best Keyboard Apps for Android

Touchpal is another great choice that leaves autocomplete off by default.
