    So when i upgraded to froyo my droid X keyboard kept posting force close errors over and over again so i had to switch back to the stock keyboard. Has everyone experienced this, and is there a fix or an updated version?

    Thanks

    Where do you find the Droid X keyboard at?

    Been stated for days that the droid X keyboard will not work in Froyo. If you want another multi touch keyboard try smart keyboard from the market.

    FYI, the stock keyboard now has multi touch capability with the lasted 2.2 update.

    I'm looking for a bigger keyboard in the range of what the droid X is/what I had. Any suggestions on the market for a new one? My fingers are to big I need a big keyboard :)

    Free would be good to. BTW I'm newer to android, If I buy a app from europe does it work on US phones?

    Thanks for letting me know Droid X keyboard doesn't work, I guess I'll finally try swype or go back to stock.

    Yes! Stock has multitouch -- no need for the droid X keyboard now!

    It's more than that. The stock keyboard is still painful compared to the DX one.

    I don't really care for those arrows over on the side. I wish they were located like the numbers are instead.

    I agree with OP that I prefer the layout of the DX keyboard over the stock keyboard. I liked how the letters were spaced out and I really don't need the arrow icons. It is nice that the new stock kb is multitouch but I hope that once DX gets Froyo that we will see a new kb to get.

    Since the Droid X is getting (or got?) froyo soon, maybe someone will have a froyo friendly version out soon. I have 6 keyboards and the droid X is still my favorite.

    I tried and tried to force myself to like the X keyboard, but i had to dump it. I was using Swype for a while, but one-handed texting was something awful for me with it. I went back to stock and luckily so, since it's now multi-touch. I see no advantage from X keyboard any longer, but that's just me and my preference.
