Default Virtual keyboards: Which are you using?

In the last week, I've been playing with a few different virtual keyboards and I'm just curious what most of you guys are using. Currently I'm switching around between:

- The stock virtual keyboard. Landscape orientation is great, but in portrait, the keys are way too skinny.

- SmartKeyboard Pro. Pretty good layout (using the iphone skin) - specifically in portrait - but gets pretty laggy.

- SwiftKey Beta. This has the best predictive text feature I've ever used, but it's also prone to getting a little laggy and is missing some key features...But it's still beta, so we'll see. I think these guys are on to something.

I know a lot of you guys like Swype but the idea of how it works just doesn't really appeal to me. And I thought I noticed on these forums that a lot of people have been ditching it because it takes up a lot of space and is a bit of a resource hog...?

Anyway, I'm making this a poll (and I'm sorry if I accidentally leave a couple keyboards out) but feel free to discuss also.

Thanks!

I'd love to give that one a try but I need to have "vibrate on keypress" and I saw reports that we don't have that function when it's ported to the Droid.

I've heard good things about SwiftKey, but I am far more efficient with swiping than 1 or 2 finger pecking, even with predictive text.

@ricksievers: Swype has a public beta. You just have to sign up.

I would never give up my Swype. Before Swype, I couldn't stand the on-screen virtual keyboards. After getting used to Swype, I was without it for a few days when the original beta version stopped working on my phone, and I felt completely lost until I found a version that worked.

Swype is a must have for me!! Everytime I use my wife's eris, who doesn't use swype, I get so frustrated having to peck at the keyboard, it's much slower and less reliable.

I have been back and forth on swype. I like it for composing, but when entering in email addresses, especially for addresses that are initials, you need to just peck. I kind of wish there was a toggle mode for using sywpe and pecking.

There sort of is -- I just pull out my physical keyboard when I need to peck,or I peck on the Swype keyboard if it's short. For me, it's just as easy to peck on the Swype keyboard as it is on any of the other virtual keyboards.

I agree although in the latest (public) beta they have disabled spaces for input of email, URLS and such so that I can combine pecking and swiping if I can break a site into several smaller words all jammed together.

Also, as nice as Android's new default "extended keyboard" is, I still like that I can short- or long-press on each Swype key to get the most common characters without having to switch between keyboards.

Oh, and learning of the "special" keyboard with arrow keys was icing on the cake.

I'm torn. I like Swype in portrait, but hate it in landscape.

Lately I'm using the 2.2 stock keyboard due to it's hidden extra rows (which I constantly use), but I'd love for the Droid X multi-touch keyboard to get ported to 2.2.

Maybe with a HTC theme on top of it.

I can dream cant I? :')

Really? I just checked their website and it appears to be still accepting beta applications. I have heard that they have a limit on how many times you can install the beta, but you can send them the email address you signed up with and they can reset your limit.

By the way, you don't need to uninstall Swype to show the difference. You can just go to the keyboard settings and switch back to the stock keyboard temporarily.

I hadn't been able to use any virtual keyboard until I tried swype. Having to type the same key several times to get the one I want just doesn't appeal to me. I'd rather have a physical keyboard. Since I tried swype tho, I really enjoy using that.

Or just long-press in the text box and select "Input method" then the keyboard you want to change to.

I'm new to the android community, as I have just picked up a Droid for my wife and I last night, I'm interested in hearing about Better Keyboard from people who have used it. I don't mind the stock keyboard too much, But my wife is dying to have a keyboard like the storms compact qwerty that she just switched from. Anyone have some insight on how good Better Keyboard is to use in regards to that specific style of input?

This is not true. If you click on the "CLICK HERE TO JOIN" link it takes you to a screen saying that Swype Beta is closed. The best you can do is register with your email to be notified when the beta opens back up.

I've tried the IME download of the HTC keyboard. Nice, but it couldn't predict everything I wanted to say.
I tried the droid x multitouch keyboard and I really liked that but it bugged me that it wouldn't punctuate words properly like the stock one does( ex. im wouldnt be changed to I'm and i wouldn't be switched to I)
The swiftkeyboard was also very nice but its missing the double tap space bar to put a period. Thats a big one for me so I'm back to stock. Hopefully they put a fix for that soon so I can go back to using it

I haven't used Swype since the speech-to-text came out. I just hit that little microphone button and dictate. Saves so much time over even Swype! Am I the only one who uses it?

I use Vietnamese IME - I sometimes need to type in Vietnamese. However, this IME is great even if you only use English. I wrote a review of it for the site.

Vietnamese IME: Fantastic IME with smart, useful features

I was the same until I tried SwiftKey Beta. I text quite a bit for business and personal, once SwiftKey learns my texting habits it will almost complete my formal texts for me. And the personal texts are amazingly predictive also. This is an amazing technology that will facilitate the rise of the machines.

Hey, I finally installed something onto my phone...The droid x keyboard! Anyway, there is a warning that the application can collect personal data like passwords, credit card numbers etc as it comes from from a unknown non market source. Should I be concerned?

PS not that I use it, but the vibrate on text does not seem to work?

Thanks

I have seen some really good ones out there, but none matches the speed and stability of Swype on my phone.

And for folks that complain that it is laggy, well, let me just say this:

SwiftKey is pretty sweet, and now in the market. I used Swype for a little while but got tired of it constantly screwing up my input. Switched to using the stock and/or HTC keyboards since I really liked having accurate predictive text. Swiftkey has gone one step further by actually learning what you type and making it far more accurate. Give it a shot.

I like Swype best so far. It more than anything else made me forget about my physical keyboard (except for games). The only thing I don't like in the latest version is that it doesn't delete just part of a URL anymore when holding the backspace key like it used to. Now it erases the whole thing.

I have found myself using 3 different keyboards lately on my Moto Droid. I have been using Smart Keyboard Pro, Swiftkey Beta, and also the HTC keyboard. I use the HTC compact probably the most. It allows for easy one handed typing in portrait that is fast and accurate.

Interesting to note: If you discount the physical KB in the poll above, Swype has the same number of votes as all the others combined as of this posting (33 for Swype, 33 for all the rest not including the physical KB).

Better Keyboard was one of the first apps I purchased from the Market, and it's not bad, having numerous skins you can change around to match the theme you're running. The thing is, since I purchased it, I've discovered Swype and now have a group of color themed Swypes that I match up with the colors of the theme I'm running, and I found a site that lets you create your own color coordinated HTC keyboard from scratch (including one for Froyo roms), so I rarely use Better Keyboard anymore. It kinda got left by the side of the road, due to my changing tastes.

Why do you need a toggle? If you want to peck then peck. Swype doesn't force you to swype.

Hey I downloaded the multi-touch keyboard but it wont switch to landscape view, it only appears to work in portrait view. Anyone have any idea on this. I'm using Moto Droid btw.

Nevermind, I had the auto-rotate turned off in the settings. LOL

I wanna give this a shot now that vibrate is working but I gots a question: When I try to install it, it says "the application you are installing will replace another application". I don't want it to replace anything so I canceled. Any ideas?
