The thing that makes this keyboard special, is that it learns how you type and the suggested words are amazing.

SwiftKey has been by far the best keyboard I've used on Android. Better than Swype. The reason it's so good, the predictions get better the more you use it. I would highly suggest everyone try it. And you have to give it more than a couple hours.

Even more reason, get it when it's FREE!

Hands down the best and pleasant to look at, but some skins or overlay of some type would make it more user adaptive to others. Especially those always changing things up.

SwiftKey comes with 3 skins, and the devs have mentioned "maybe" creating more, but that was awhile ago. The app is great because it learns your typing methods and can be set up to the way you type. It can learn from your Gmail, text, and FaceBook on how you type/msg and doesn't intrude on your privacy.

Skins so far can't be found for it, but I also don't think anyone has given it a try to conquer that hurdle. It would be a challenge worthy of a good dev. (my way of trying to bolster someone to attempt, think it will work? Lol)

Yeah I know about the 3 original skins. I have the app but don't use it because the keyboard is hideous. IMO its barely a step up from Smart Keyboard but the SK does so much more.

It's a great keyboard. On the iphone I hate how the keyboard auto corrects all the time. SwiftKey does it all the time and i don't notice which is a testament to how accurate it is.

It does seem to have issues inside some apps though, but I'm not sure if other keyboards have the same problems.

I've made a few attempts at theming it ... pretty failed attempts :) There's definitely people out there capable of doing it, but the whole issue of theming a paid app is tricky.
But the actual theming would mostly be done in xml. From what I remember there's lots of gradients, meaning a top color and bottom color.. which also gets tricky, aesthetically. I might take a crack again later.

I paid for and use religiously thumb keyboard yeah I am not big on predictive text and the swiftkey was good but the keyboard is just way to small reminded me of a blackberry and I hated their keys.... thumb keyboard can use 25 premade themes or you can customize it yourself in the settings look feel and even key size I would truly recommend it for those not caring about predictive text
however it still has the predictive text and you can add words to its dictionary

Such an amazing keyboard. Have been using this since beta and have yet to find any better keyboard replacement.

I love SwiftKey!

It truly gets better and better every day. Swype is stupid and so slow. Half of the phrases I say in texts can be typed just by tapping on predictions! It's just great.
