    I'm not a huge fan of the Inc's keyboard. Can some of you guys recommend a keyboard app that you've tried and tested as better than the stock program?

    Thanks very much

    I like sywpe but it can be a bit confusing even after you get used to it. The main problem being the keys are just a tad small. Sometimes you forget where a key is because your finger is in the way.

    I like Shapewriter over Swype.

    Same here, but even with that keyboard i'm still having a heck of a time getting used to to typing on this phone coming from a iPhone. I love everything else about this phone but I wish the screen was a bit wider to make the buttons a little bigger. I have small hands too and have been trying all different keyboards but can't find one that I like.

    Swype. I tried Shapewriter but there was something off about it.

    They're different both in layout and feel, but same basic principle. I think it's fantastic that there are TWO trace-based keyboards (three? SlideIt?). Android is just amazing.

    i cannot stop swyping. i will type full sentences because the thing is so fast and i am nowhere near the correct letters sometimes and it still gets it right. it is utterly amazing.

    I honestly think trace-style keyboards could eliminate 'text slang' entirely. Since it's actually FASTER to write correctly and they auto-capitalize, I wouldn't be at all surprised if once these types of keyboards become more commonplace things like "r u here?" will go away.

    Just for another option you should try Swiftkey. It is still in beta and you will only find it by your favorite search engine. The basic principle is it guesses what your next word is going to be. It learns as you type what words you tend to use. I have had several sentences that all I had to do was tap the words with no typing individual letters. It takes a while to get used to. Instead of the space bar it's easier to look at the words and then yours appears then just tap it and move onto the next word.

    I would like to combine the bigger keyboard of Shapewriter into Swype. I prefer Swype over Shapewriter except the keys in portrait on Swype are too small.

    And for landscape typing I use the stock keyboard. I only wish it were multitouch. :(

    Smart Keyboard Pro. The custom autotext feature is very nice.

    Interesting you say "Swype" yet your post says "Sent using my Evo 4g on Tapatalk Pro" afterward.

    With 416 posts I would have thought you would know what Tapatalk was, especially since it is all over Android forums.

    SW and swype pretty much the same except when type letter by letter, SW better at that.

    Me too. Shapewriter is the best for me. Swype was weeiird.

    I just wish you could designate which keyboard you wanted to use on different apps. Shapewriter stinks when trying to swype URLs on the browser address bar :(
