Is Better Keyboard better than the keyboard that comes with the Eris?

    I know that the Sense UI keyboard is supposed to be pretty good, but I'm wondering if I should download Better Keyboard.

    Has anyone used both?

    I've been wondering the same thing too bad there isn't a limited time trial of better keyboard and other apps like it.

    no it was designed for the g1 the guy has tried to fix it but if he's still charging for it it's definitely not worth it.

    I downloaded better keyboard last night out of curiousity and its pretty nice. The main difference between it and the hero/eris keyboard is the buttons are bigger and there are no spaces between them like the sense keyboard.
    My one gripe with it so far is it doesn't seem to recognize the used word dictionary in my hero and it doesn't seem to have one of its own.
    "Hehe" will always come up as "behe" as an example.

    Because of that I'm typing this message on the stock keyboard. I have to see about finding a used word dictionary for it. I've got till 1030 tonight to return it otherwise :)

    Edit: downloaded the dictionary for it and a long press on one of the suggested words saves it as it should. Hehe now comes out properly (example) and I love this keyboard even more now. A lot easier to type with it.
