    I love the look of ICS, I love everything else, but I'm not digging the keyboard. Is there a setting I'm missing? At first I felt like it wasn't correcting as well as GB's keyboard. So I set it to "aggressively" correct and it still doesn't seem to correct well. I want to like it, but it's taking me longer to type than on GB keyboard.

    Buy SwiftKey X. It's worth the money.

    It lags too.

    How do you make it auto correct?

    I have downloaded the GB keyboard before and it was a thought but I *want* to like the ICS keyboard, lol. I bought better keyboard a long time ago so I do have access to that if I need it, and I really like the google typing too, so I'm hesitant to switch, I want to learn to love it.

    My favourite on my phone is the compact mode on Smart Keyboard Pro. Much better - at least in portrait mode - than those tiny buttons on a full keyboard on a small screen, and the compact mode still uses the QWERTY layout (coupled with XT9 word prediction), so my fingers landed on the right keys from the first minute I used it. Switching to the full size layout may be necessary for inputting non-dictionary words though.

    For my new tablet I'm still juggling SwiftKey 3 (what's up with their odd jump in version number by the way? From "X" to 3?) and Thumb Keyboard. The word prediction is better on the former, but the key layout is a bit more comfortable on the latter - even with both keyboards in split mode.
