This is my first go with the Google keys seems OK but doesn't have the arrow keys which are key, pun intended. Since I'm still on The Bean I think I will be switching back but I'll give it a shoot. Add some stores and i think Google might have something.

Just download SwiftKey - totally free now (in-app purchases are for themes only). Does everything Swype did PLUS. Has cursor keys, has number row above keyboard. Allows you to increase/decrease size of keyboard, and has FLOW which is as good or better than Swype.



If you don't like it uninstall it, but once you try it, you probably won't uninstall it.

I lost the pre-installed version of swype when my droid4 got reset to defaults (got license error from swype), so I tried purchasing the latest version and I hated it.  It wouldn't work at all with my physical keyboard - kept bringing up autocorrect suggestions (even after I turned them off) and it would also sometimes bring up a full-screen text input window.  And it didn't seem to work as well as the old version, either.



So I ditched swype and tried google keyboard.  So far no issues with physical keyboard input, and the google "gestures" seem to work as well or better than swype.  It even uses previous words to help predict the next word, which is something I always wished swype would do.

The last post on this thread is a year old. Pretty sure everyone moved on.
