    +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.

    Just downloaded swype from the mirror site. THANKS. I've been wanting this since September! Seems to work great so far. Certainly faster than android stock kb.

    Swype came stock on the Optimus S too. By far my favorite keyboard so far.

    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. :D

    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.
