New keyboards for Android

It’s worth it to get a good keyboard that will save you time and typos.

It’s possible that your device came with multiple keyboards already installed. Go to “Language & keyboard” in settings to see. You can try out new keyboards to replace the default one that comes with your phone, and easily switch back if you don’t like the new keyboard.

NOTE: All keyboards have access to everything you type including passwords so make sure the keyboard App you try is from a real company and has at least hundreds of thousands of users.

Suggestions:

Swiftkey X – $4.99

“Very sloppy typing will magically make sense, and SwiftKey X also powerfully predicts the word you may want next. SwiftKey X learns as you use it to make typing easier and even more accurate over time, and you can also personalize it using your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or blog posts”

It really does predict your next word better than other keyboard Apps. It also supports a ton of languages.

SlideIT Keyboard – $5.99

Similar to Swype, you slide your finger from letter to letter, only lifting your finger to end a word. Once you learn it, you can type faster – especially one handed. This seems to be a bit more accurate than Swype, and has a nice “Import Contacts” feature so it knows when you’re typing names.
