+1 for SwiftKey for me too..

once it learns your words from SMS you're smiling. Especially if you use odd words like Auchtermuchty, Finzean or Kirkcudbright hehe

Has anybody used 8pen? I watched video about this new way of writing and am a bit confused about this app. Is it convenient to type like this?
Now I'm using DioPen ))

I am a huge fan of SwiftKey. On forums it's quick but texting is lightning fast... it seems to know which friends I am texting.

I was using swipe when I first got my Droid X last week and thought it was pretty cool. I downloaded the trial of swiftkey last night and I will be buying it. Very impressed by the way it works.

We are not allowed to post links to swype, but I heard some of the custom roms have it built in as an option.

I have tried TB, it is "ok" doesnt realy have thick buttons. it predicts what u are typing and makes those letters thick. predictions are way off. Also, you cant see what you are typing.

Swype. Haven't tried anything else and don't want too. I'm enjoying it. On a side note, if that is not what you are looking for, if you can find the Gingerbread keyboard, I think that is better then stock. Some major improvements were made. I really like it. It won't make me go back to just a regular keyboard, but nonetheless, a good keyboard.

The reason I pick Swype is that I don't want my text predicted for me so much as I want a smooth, fluid way of entering text without having to hunt and peck using a single finger when texting / sending email. I haven't really tried anything else, but anything else that doesn't have some revolutionary way of entering text (besides the microphone, of course lol) just isn't going to be for me. Just read some of my posts on this forum and you'll understand why I don' go for hunt and peck unless I am on a full qwerty KB - they're long winded, and typing on a small device, and in particular in portrait mode, is simply a PITA, whereas Swype works perfectly fine. Also, I so don't like the DROIDs pull out KB that I never use it. Not even in terminal anymore since Terminal Emulator no has a way to toggle the softkeyboard....

Based on opinions here, looks like Swype edges everything else. Gonna try this and will leave my feedback later.

I've tried em all and I keep coming back to better keyboard. I like the larger key size. Fat fingers and stock kb don't mix. Swype is cool, but to me it was just something to show off. Not really practical.

Try 8pen and you'll revise that statement.

does anyone use ultra keyboard? Its pretty slick. It has more options than any of the other keyboards I've tried and as far as i can tell it is the only keyboard that will auto correct when using the search button.

I used the QWERTY for awhile before I figured out how to download and install non-market apps, then found Swype. The beta expired and I was out of luck for awhile, so resorted to SlideIT, which was....acceptable. I got Swype back recently and I really like it, but some little things bug me, the way it ALWAYS assumes I'm trying to type "fire" and not "for," for instance. I tried Smart Keyboard recently to see if it got along better with my habits, and I'm pretty impressed. The auto-correct and calibration really helped and I can type a lot faster than I ever had been able to with on-screen keyboards. I switch back and forth between Smart Keyboard and Swype now, but both are great and useful in certain situations.

Slideit works like Swype and doesn't put you through hoops to install.

been using a few for a while now, I like the ability to swap skins on better keyboard but it lags sometimes which I can't stand and it misspelled words all the time with my sloppy text habits, put Smart Keyboard on and was blown away by it's auto correct, usually hits the word right away and it's super accurate for me. I am not a huge fan of swiftkey since it seems to use more battery than the others and I get frustrated when it doesn't know the word and installs another that I have to go back and fix. The one thing I like about swiftkey is the swype gesture to delete. The XDA gingerbread keyboard is too damn small and I constantly misspell words on it so that only lasted an hour, So I'll prob stick with Smart keyboard and switch back and forth to swype when the mood strikes.

Swype owns and sucks at once - I got a D1 precisely for a nice keyboard.
When I found swype, I never used my physical keyboard again.

I checked out this thread because I need ideas. I LOVE swype in theory, and I can type great on it. There are two major problems I have. The first, more minor one is that it won't work after restarting the phone, you have to select a different keyboard and then reselect swype.

The second, major problem with swype is the stupid tip box that pops up every time you try to pick a word that wasn't the top choice. This is the biggest pain in the program. I would love it if I just swyped my text and had to select a word once and a while, but no every time you select a word two or three spaces down that stupid box pops up, and then you have to exit out of it. On longer text messages this could happen three or four times.

I'm going to give slideit another try, and maybe even 8pen.

I really want to like this keyboard but i cant figure out how to input user id's and passwords (things that are not common words) without flicking the buttons. It seems really complicated.
What am i doing wrong?

Yes, that does help a lot!! I will test back and forth between this and the Swiftkey beta. Their "next word" prediction is pretty useful, but I like your bigger buttons.

I just can't get my mind out of Swype. You should (as suggested in a youtube video) make it faster by changing the autoguess to never. I prefer turning off sound and keyboard as well, because it makes it feel faster. Once you are done typing you can double tap and edit the wrong words.

I like Smart Keyboard Pro, it has so many features with a lot of useful updates, along with custom autotext. Custom autotext isnt on any other keyboard app and i love it because it reminds me of my blackberry

The tips turn off after awhile. Have no clue why yours stays on.
I've rebooted a hundred times and never once had to choose which keyboard after the initial choice when I first installed Swype.

(You did leave the installer on the phone?)

I didn't do anything with the installer after Skype was up and running, should I have?

I completely gave up on swype because of this issue, and went back to regular typing on the stock Sense keyboard... which I think is faster. When I'm not in a hurry I've also been messing with 8pen, which is an usual concept.

I have tried Swype since I was lucky enough to get in on the beta, but I guess I just never put in the practice to get good with it. I know some people can fly on it, but since I don't know all the little tips and tricks I get stumped on it real quick. If I need to type something that has double letters I always forget how to do it, and it just aggravates me so I just go back to my standby of SwiftKey. I can not recommend it enough. I might have different feeling for Swype if I actually forced myself to use it, but I guess I am just a little stubborn that way.

Make a circle on the letter you want doubled.
Easy.

Question is, why? Why would you need to type something on your computer and then send it to the phone?

I use Remote Web for this and love it. You can either do the web entry for any text field on the phone, or it will actually sync your text messages and allows you to view & reply to them from your web browser. I use it all the time... if I'm working on the computer and someone texts me I just click over to that tab, reply quickly, and go back to work... without ever needing to pick up my phone.

Flex t9 seems to combine swype with a good predictive keyboard and a good voice input and handwriting input in a very nice package

I'm on about my 15th keyboard.

Currently using dragon I mean nuance. Like it a lot. It does NOT insert spaces after words.

If you need something light on memory try go. It doesn't have to be ugly if you drop an image in the right directory.

Swiftkey is very cool on prediction, but one of my apps hates it.

The most amazing keyboard I've used is t-swipe. It can do anything. It does English and I think Thai, but also has a wild set of directions keys and symbols and math notation. You know about press and long press? Well this supports super long press with a little tray you can fill with umm, macros? Anyhow it's wild but uses mucho memory.

I'll probably have a new favorite by next week :-)

I got FlexT9 when it was free on Amazon and I deleted Swype. This one is so much better.
