    Swype is trustworthy... It does collect anonymous usage data, but it's well obviously anonymous, and they don't go stealing your passwords and stuff like that. It's all spelled out in their EULA.

    In fact, I'd hazard a guess that any of the extremely popular keyboards out right now could be trusted. If they were stealing folks account info people wouldn't be using them. People, and especially people in the Android community tend to notice when things behave badly.

    No keyboard app actually collects your personal data. That message you get when you try to install a new keyboard is a false alarm (and it pops up for every keyboard). All of the major keyboards are safe. My favorite is TouchPal.

    Swiftkey X is a good keyboard if your not worried about memory usage. Its a total resource hog. It was using 32megs of my RAM so I deleted it. My ZTE Warp only has 512.
