    I've never been so keen on the Samsung keyboard but rather than pay for swift or similar I thought I'd wait to see if it got updated....still seems no better.

    What keyboard are we all using at the moment?

    I've decided to give a jelly bean keyboard from the play store a try.

    I use Swiftkey 3. I waited until it was on sale for $0.99, which seems to happen regularly. The predictive text speeds things up.

    Another vote for Perfect Keyboard, although I'm not sure that 'foung' is the best advert for a finger-friendly keyboard! :-D

    The reason I chose it is that it offers cursor keys, which none of the others seem to advertise as a capability. But, after fairly prolonged use, it also seems to just do what you want a keyboard to do - make typing as effortless and uncomplicated as it can be.

    I've got swiftkey on my s3 and nexus7, but always use 'go keyboard' with 'midnight' theme. Although the predictive text is superior on swiftkey, the one let feature of go keyboard is it has the t9 feature which is the reason I always use it over swiftkey. Give it a go and see how you get on.

    I also use Smart Keyboard! I didn't think anyone else used it anymore, lol. I tried different keyboards such as Swiftkey and Perfect keyboard but I always end up going back to Smart Keyboard.
