Top Keyboards for Android Devices

By on July 15, 2014

One of the best things about the Android platform is that it is highly customizable. You can replace the native apps with some 3rd party apps if you like. You can change the entire look of the device with the help of launchers. Following is the list of top Android keyboards available in the Google Play Store.

Swiftkey

Swiftkey is probably the most famous keyboard in the Android world. This particular keyboard offers so many features and options which are not available in the stock keyboard or any other keyboard replacement. There are several themes available which you can adopt after installing the Swiftkey on your device. The Swiftkey is not only available for the phones but also available for the big screen tablets.

The spelling suggestion feature in the Swiftkey is amazing too; it is way better than the stock keyboard of the Android devices. One thing that Swiftkey has but no other keyboard has is the prediction for the words. The word prediction feature is quite different than the spelling suggestion feature because the prediction features works in real time and predict the word even before you type it.

Swype

Swype keyboard is one of the top keyboards in the Google Play Store. Among other things, the Swype introduced the gesture feature in the keyboards. The gesture feature allows you to type without lifting your finger from the screen. It is quite useful for the people who type a lot of things on their Android devices.

The Swype also has the dictionaries which you can install as per your requirement; it also has the word prediction engine which predicts the word while using the gesture feature. It also allows the users to switch languages easily with a single swipe on the keyboard.

Google Keyboard

As you already know that the stock keyboard in the Android devices is not very productive and feature rich as compare to the other options available in the Google Play Store. The recent Android update, Kit Kat brought the whole new keyboard for the Android users. The best part is that the people using the devices with Android version earlier than the Kit Kat are also able to get their hands on this keyboard by downloading it as a separate app from the Google Play Store.

The new Google Keyboard doesn’t have amazing features because it has just combines the various features present in the different other keyboards. Yet the Google Keyboard is a simple, elegant and faster keyboard than any other option present in the Google Play Store. The Google keyboard has all the features present in a premium keyboard while the Google Keyboard is free to download.

Fleksy

Fleksy keyboard is a premium keyboard app in the Google Play Store, you can download and install it on your Android phone or tablet for $4 or you can get the free version which has limited features. The main focus of the Fleksy is extreme accuracy and speed while typing. The Fleksy has several themes in the premium version which are easy to download via in app download. The Fleksy doesn’t have the gesture feature and it is purely designed for the people who love tap typing rather than the gesture typing. Among other things, the Fleksy also has the auto correction, auto punctuation and invisible keyboard option.
