    I use SwiftKey. Theirs a free and paid version in the play store. It's easy to use and the keyboard adjust to the way u type. Also it has lots of cool themes. Here's a screen shot of mine.

    I used to swear by swype. Now all I use is SwiftKey. Basically costs you nothing but time to try either or any other. Consensus seems to point towards one of these two. Try them both. Neither one will steer you wrong.

    Although if you want the swype type of typing in my opinion swype is better. SwiftKey has a similar thing called "flow" but creates way too many wrong words for me compared to swype.

    It does have good built in themes but you can also find themed versions of swype, especially on xda, and some of them are pretty sweet.

    I use Messagease. It's a unique layout designed to optimize speed. There's a learning curve. Well worth negotiating.
