The space key does not seem sensitive enough. I'm always going back and adding spaces.
Smart Keyboard Pro
It costs I think 2.99 on market but is MUCH more responsive than the stock keyboard, IMO, and is very much worth it. You can also skin it and customize the look. I had an iPhone for a few years before I got my X on launch day and I honestly missed the keyboard....this app has it. I've had a few friends with similar gripes on their phones (non-X phones) and after they tried this app, they felt the same way
I will give this a shot, i'm currently using better keyboard.
Whoa.....Way better! Thank you so much! I now have no complaints about my X!
No problem! I know I sound like a salesman for this thing sometimes lol
Seriously I love it though! Glad it helped
Smart Keyboard Pro ROCKS!!!
I have to get used to the space bar location!
I thought it was my imagination about the space bar. It does seem like it's less responsive than the other keys.
Swype will some this problem and more...just try it!
i just dled ultra keyboard and its decent wish i saw this about smart keybowrd
Swype is definitely the way to go...Auto-space FTW!
This. I actually can't remember the last time I pressed the spacebar.
I was thinking the same thing.....space bar, what space bar?
I tried swype out recently because my dad was actually going on and on about it...and he was jealous when he found out I had it on my phone and he couldn't get it on his (He has a Samsung Moment on Sprint).
I have to admit it was really cool but I just haven't taken the time to sit down and play with it....old fashioned texting is just what I'm used to
I tried swipe, and I never adapt to it... I have not noticed any issues with the Pro KB spacebar though....
Again, Swype is Superior... just give it a chance...use it a day or two..after that...I keep trying to find a Swype KB on my laptop!
I didn't like swype at all. I installed smart keyboard pro and haven't looked back.
ive tried them all and so far the best ive found, and by far the best, is the HTC_IME mod keyboard. its the most responsive and accurate and you can design your own skins. it takes a lil time to set it up because you have to unzip the file and move some parts around but its worth it. and its free!!
I'm in the same boat.
I used Swype for the first month of using my Droid X, trying to like it.
It was VERY fast, but also was rather inaccurate and I was constantly pushing the random "info" button causing a pop-up, which got annoying.
After using Smart Keyboard Pro, I can EASILY say that I am texting\typing MUCH quicker...
Now that I use SWYPE and am pretty quick with it. I think people look silly pecking away at each letter. It can be a little frustrating when it gets words wrong. But then you just have to peck out the word like you would otherwise.
swype is only good in portrait. For those times I'm in landscape, I need a good qwerty. +1 for smart keyboard pro.
