    Best Keyboard?

    So Im looking to try a different keyboard for my Rezoud. I was thinking Swype but I installed it and it was absolutely tiny, like tiny like it was on my D2 so I got rid of that. Anyone else have any other ideas to try?

    I'm a big fan of the ICS keyboard for one reason... It recognizes when I meant to hit space and hit 'b' or 'n' by mistake - and I tend to do that often... that puts it above others in my mind. HTC's keyboard is nice as well, but doesn't recognize that. I'm a swype fan as well, but have become faster at real typing.

    Also, the ICS keyboard on the market is pretty customizable - size, how aggressive it auto corrects, etc.

    Never used swiftkey myself...

    ^I think both of those are good keyboards. The ICS is very intuitive and Swiftkey is well Swiftkey, it's always been great.

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    I was a Swype user for almost 2 years, just became so natural. Used the Swiftkey demo for a bit on my Bionic, and thought it was awesome, but I was so used to Swype. However, the new Swype 3.0 Beta sucks on the Rezound. Was great on my Bionic, but for some reason, half the time I try going from one end of the keyboard to the other it'll cut off half way through and form two or three words instead. I honestly think it has something to do with the glass, or the anti scratch coating on it, hard to say. I tried to master it, but it wasn't happening, so I got fed up with it. Purchased SwiftKey for more or less this exact reason in December for .10 cents. So reliable, and mind boggling accurate. I can type almost entire texts only hitting the first letter or two of every word, very impressive. I will catch myself Swyping occasionally out of habit, but then I reminisce on the experience and decide it's time to move on. Maybe I'll go back some day, the voice to text recognition for Swype is unrivaled IMO, but Swype itself just wasn't compatible with the Rezound (like so many other things). And the Rezounds built in "slide" or whatever it's called feels too generic for me. Yellow isn't a big color of mine either.

    I agree 100%. ICS keyboard is great...especially if you're on ICS. It also doesn't take up 90% of the screen like the default HTC keyboard.
    Helpful Rezound Links:
    Guide to Unlocking, Rooting, ROM'ing, and FAQ

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    Ahhhh, I've been having the same problem too and it's driving me crazy! I thought maybe it was my screen protector. I guess I'll give SwiftKey a try. I've heard nothing but good things.

    you can customize the height of the ICS keyboard off the market... maybe that's only available in the "full" version, though, which is what I have
