    Love the phone, but not too crazy about any of the included keyboards (especially Samsung's!)

    Any recommendations from the Market? What's been working for you guys and gals?

    I use SwiftKey X. I really like it and it works the best for me and my butterfingers.

    On all of my previous phones, I used SwiftKey X. Love it, but on the note, it lagged and had issues (phone or tablet version).

    I'm using Thumb Board 4 and LOVE it!

    I totally agree. I put it on my Captivate almost two years ago - xferred it to my Skyrocket and now have it on my note

    Thanks for all the suggestions....I pretty much tried them all in the past couple days, and I think I found a winner with Thumb Keyboard. Using it right now with its built in ICS theme and it's a delight. Worth the purchase!

    Gotta put my vote in for Swype. Although my co-worker just gave the thumbs-up for Swiftkey. So I may have to try it now..

    You can set up custom layout for Portrait and Landscape. Try different ones and see what works best for you. I love that part about Thumboard. :D
  12. SlideIT is great .. Lots of good looking clean skins. Best autocorrect. Simple layout.. Oh yea and resizable!

    I have fairly thick fingers (not fat, actually kind of spindly, but wide-ish at the tips) so really no virtual keyboard works well for me.

    I have tried them all, and after everything, I've come back around to the latest iteration of Swype. It just seems that anything involving the actual mechanical act of "typing" causes me problems (Yes, tried Swiftkey 3 beta and all others).

    Saying all this to say that I'm probably one of the few dinosaur hold-overs from the physical keyboard days who actually still pines for a good old fashioned physical keyboard. lol

    Another one for Swiftkey. I've seen others with slightly better layout but they all lack the massive number of long press options available for extra characters from the main keyboard and of course the exceedingly impressive auto complete.

    I've actually done almost whole sentences from just the first word.

    Thumb Keyboard 4. Split keyboard in landscape, regular in portrait. Awesome!

    Swiftkey works great... I didn't know I had to use the tablet version which was great because I already use it on my tablet.. It looks much better on the note. You won't be disappointed..

    I tried SwiftKey for a couple days and went back to swype. Although I liked how Swiftkey had more useful keys layed out for you like ".com" and some others where you had to shift to get to on the stock keyboard.

    Ice cream sandwich donation with a red skin, change the portrait size and time good to go.

    Perfect Keyboard and ICS Keyboard work great with my Gorilla hands.

    Tried others and could never get used to them.

    Smart keyboard pro is a good one and my personal fav! lots of skins and options make it work for me.

    I've been using the Jelly Bean keyboard, since I was a big fan of the ICS keyboard. Only issue is that when you save something on the fly to your user dictionary it makes you verify the word again, even after telling it to save the word. Not a deal breaker but does anyone know how to turn this off?

    I'm back to Swype after trying Swiftkey, ICS, and Jellybean keyboards. I just like sliding as opposed to typing I suppose lol
