    Ok so there's a keyboard app in the market by a guy named Steven Lin. The keyboard looks sick. Only thing is when I downloaded it, a message came up with some of your information like credit card numbers, etc will be transmitted and saved, or something to that extent.

    What's up with that? Is the guy who put this app in the market, or anyone for that fact receiving any info from my messages or able to somehow get a hold of my info?

    That's a general warning you get with any keyboard you download from the market.

    Its warning you that any keyboard that's not oem "could" have been written to capture sensitive information. Better Keyboard and all the others have the same warning. That doesn't mean that they were written that way it's just a general warning. I've been using the Gingbread pay version and it's by far my favorite keyboard...
