    I'm just wondering because this phone refuses to install the Swype Beta for whatever reason. I attempted to install it twice and I even uninstalled the app just to try again, but I keep getting the error: "Parse error - There is a problem parsing the package."

    What keyboards do you guys use? This stock keyboard isn't cutting it for me...

    I've got the Swiftkey beta going. There's a few issues every now and then because I don't think its really 100% ready for ICS but it gets the job done

    I think I tried Swiftkey a while back. Does it have a pro version? I think I remember getting it as the free app of the day on the Amazon app store. I remember not liking it very much.

    The beta is free (for now) but yea otherwise you'd have to pay $2 for the version on the app store

    I saw a YouTube video said the evo 3d stock keyboard comes with Swype function. Not sure is that also comes with evo v or not.

    I'm using a Swype Beta that I had installed on my SD from back when I had my Triumph, its working beautifully. My Evo V didn't have any keyboard besides the HTC Trace Keyboard pre-installed. I just wish it was decluttered, stupid pointless buttons can get annoying, but the trace on swype is unparalleled.

    That's actually not a half bad idea. I still have my Triumph, so I might just switch SD cards and see if I can install it on the sd card via the old phone and then pop it back in the Evo.

    EDIT: Did the same crap on Triumph. Wow, this sucks. And I liked Swype a lot too. Guess it's in beta for a reason.

    Smart keyboard pro is amazing on my OV and I've heard similar praise on other bigger devices.

    Yeah, I found the installer in my Amazon apps account for Swiftkey. Went ahead and installed that and I threw all of the other ones you all mentioned in a notepad file and I'll probably download/try them all tomorrow before I head out to work.

    Oh, and I don't have trouble installing Swype, it's just when you login to the beta and get to the screen where it asks what version of Swype you want (Beta or Beta Japanese), I get the stupid error. The apk is not the problem... =S But if you think you got something on your phone I can work with, you're more than welcome to upload it to Mediafire and let me try out your version of Swype.

    I just put in the Touchpal keyboard (free), I like it much better.

    Depending on my mood I usually use Swiftkey X or occasionally A.I. Type. Been using Swiftkey since my Intercept days, A.I. is a more recent find.

    Been using SwiftKey X for over a year, works just as good on the Evo V as the optimus V.
    It was kind of weird at first, but after linking my SMS and Facebook it can reliably predict my sentences nearly every time. I use the "rapid" typing style, and I can make HUGE errors tapping the keyboard, but it still figures out the right word when I press space.

    My stats say I am "27% more efficient at typing", I guess they base that on how many typos they correct.

    Tried Swiftkey for a few weeks but I kept making too many typos with it so I switched Perfect Keyboard free a few days ago and it seems okay so far. Not perfect as it's title claims but who knows... I got a notepad file here with a few others you guys suggested. I might just try a new one every week until Swype decides to stop being crap with its broken installation file.

    Swype has issues with Firefox, that was one reason I left it.

    I've been trying out TouchPal for two days now. I like it, but I've noticed that my CPU usage maxes out when in use. I monitor my CPU and memory use with the seepu app.
    Does this seem normal?
