After using a gesture a few times and clicking the correct word, Google Keyboard learns that the gesture should result in the word you've manually selected as the correct word. Swype doesn't seem to learn this, so even after 100 times clicking 'this' instead of 'thesis', it...
Google Keyboard allows you to enable or disable vibrate on keypress sound on keypress popup on keypress double space period These are pretty useful basic settings but most other keyboards offer more options. Google also allows you to edit the personal dictionary.
The prediction engine of SwiftKey is continuously being improved by using data from social networks, text messages or even emails from the user's device. Predictions appear above the keyboard as soon as a letter is typed. By adjusting to the user's writing habits and style, it really helps...

Fleksy is made by the creators of the alternative keyboard BlindType that was acquired by Google. As a result many of the technologies developed in BlindType are reinvented in Fleksy. The combination of accurate prediction and gestures allow you to focus on the text you are actually typing not the...
The most unique aspect about Fleksy is it's gesture system. The middle row of keys that is grayed out serves as the gesture row. The gesture row uses swipes to input spaces, periods, and correction all while you are typing. Of course this new way of typing will definitely take some to get us...
The free version of Fleksy is only a one month free tiral, to use the app past that one month the user would either need to pay for the app through an in app purchase or purchase the paid version from the Play Store.
All three rows are smashed into a single row, with prediction driving the typed words. Uses gestures to complete space, backspace, and return for even more space saving. This design is great for devices with smaller screens.
Sloppy typing only works on words in its dictionary. You can't enter words without a space between them, because it wants to "correct" the first word you have already accepted. This makes it impossible to type many URLs, unless you do it letter-by-letter, or go back and erase the spa...
There are ads on the lock screen, pop-up "bubble" ads on the homescreens, full page ads, notification panel ads, "Daily summary" popup (which can be disabled) which is basically a full screen excuse to show more ads, "Boost charge" which shows ads when charging (again...
Your hand(s) will memorize the gestures and soon you will reduce the information displayed (some make it blank). The number of combinations of the gestures allows a direct access to nearly all usual symbols (punctuation, accented letters, etc.).
It is not a keyboard for everybody, it needs some efforts and training to be efficient. Still, it is relatively intuitive: my 11 years old son used it without asking first how to use it. It as a comprehensive help, lot of settings, and has a companion game to train in a playful way.
Excellent keyboard which learns the words I type most often, supports multiple languages simultaneously (no need to switch!) and helps me type like a daemon on my Android phone and tablet. The reason why I don't get a Windows tablet (like I'm very often tempted) is because I can't find SwiftKey f...
