    I just upgraded to Jelly Bean with the AT&T OTA update. All went well except I noticed Smart Keyboard Pro and even the stock Samsung keyboard - while typing, every so many letters the pop-up key selected will jump/slide across the screen. Its distracting. Anyone else? Solution?

    This is something that I actually noticed too. I use Smart Keyboard Pro as well and it became annoying. Couldn't think of anything to fix it so all I did was turn off the pop up settings.

    I also noticed it on the stock Samsung keyboard. I have an email into the developers of Smart Keyboard Pro. I will post what when I hear back.

    Mine did the same thing until I turned off the popups. I never liked them anyways though. Everytime I reboot my phone, it reverts back to the stock one, irritating though I don't think it's Smart's fault. I found an app that makes for easy keyboard switching so I don't mind too much.
    Also, it's kinda nice to see that others use this keyboard, I rarely see anyone else using it! I created some nice keyboard skins if anyone's interested.

    SWIFTKEY FTW!

    Has anyone tried Swiftkey FLOW Beta? It is FREAKIN AWESOME! I swear it literally reads my mind and guides my hand on the phone like a Ouija Board.

    I like Smart Keyboard Pro cuz you can long press any button for symbols, punctuation, numbers, etc without having to select another button to switch screens. Plus, the Skins are cool. I'll take a look at your skins!

    I havent had any issues with the keyboard changing when powering on/off.

    I noticed it on the stock Samsung keyboard as well after I updated to Jelly Bean but I never used that keyboard so I didn't think it'd be a problem with Smart Keyboard but unfortunately it was. Please do let us know if you hear back from them.

    I said the same thing myself when I first read this thread lol. I have tried using other highly suggested keyboards like Swift Key but none of them did it for me like Smart Keyboard. I like the 3D Blue Keys skin that I've had for a long time, but I'd like to see your skins. Where can I see them?

    Okay, well here are my skins I made. They're nothing terribly special but a few people liked them! I had them originally posted on dexilog.com's smartkeyboard forum until it was overrun with spam bots.

    So, no word back from the developer of Smart Keyboard Pro, but I did speak to Samsung via live chat. The tech had me clear the data and force close the stock Samsung keyboard then see if that corrected the issue. It did for the Samsung keyboard, but not for Smart Keyboard when doing the same steps. I even uninstalled Smart Keyboard and re-installed -- no fix.

    Still no word from Smart Keyboard Pro developers on both issues (#1 - key pop-ups float/dance across screen and #2 - voice input does not work.)

    I have sent 2 follow-up emails and neither have gotten a response. You'd think at the very lease, they'd acknowledge the emails. So, because of no response, I have changed over to Perfect Keyboard Pro. Very similar to SKP and even the skins I downloaded work, as well.

    Anyone having the above issues, I suggest switching to Perfect Keyboard Pro,
