Your favorite Android keyboard.
Hi, There's tons of alternative keyboards available for Android. I have tried a lot of them and ended up with one that is my go to keyboard. For me it's important to use a keyboard that handles more than one language but there are now quite a few to choose from in that category also. Which one do you use?
First of all, it's a tablet not a phone - I imagine that makes some difference. It didn't come with some attached keyboard, so I bought a Logitech bluetooth keyboard.
I can't say that I am using those touchy devices often and I am quite content with the standard "keyboard".
If I were a regular user, I would like to have the keyboard, that was invented by Microsoft when they showed the first XP tablets in … uhm... 2002 or so. There is a video somewhere, where you can see it in action, but I don't find it again, so here the description:
No rows of keys but 2 quarter circle fields with keys in the lower corners. You could easily hold the device and type with the thumbs, every "key" was in convenient range to hit it. I have seen a similar thing 2 or 3 years ago in the Google store, but some day it vanished and I don't find it again. Anyone?
@sgunhouse: yes - a hardware keyboard is always a good alternative - best full size with numpad - but it is a bit inconvenient to carry around when you are leaving your home
I was very skeptical towards these new smart and predictive keyboards. But after having used one for a while I can now type just as fast on my phone as I can on my laptop. It's incredible how the keyboard really learns from your typing style and habits. These days I find myself pressing "space" quite often since the correct word is predicted for almost complete sentences.
