    I've been wondering what's the best keyboard in the market. Ive been using Swiftkey x and its way too unresponsive, so I'm back to using the stock keyboard. Any suggestions?

    Have you given Swype a try? It takes some getting used to but before too long you'll find it to be very powerful.

    SwiftKey is awesome... I also use it on my honeycomb tablet.

    Hi, I'm using the SwiftKey x and loving it? Find it very fast, and extraordinarily predictable. Bionic

    I've tried a number of keyboards and my overall favorite would be thumb keyboard. I felt I could type much faster and be more accurate with it than swiftkey and others. I'm currently using the stock ICS keyboard though and it seems really good.

    SlideIt & Ultra are my two favorites from the market and both have several themes available...

    Swiftkey X is still my favorite. It learns typing habits from SMS, Twitter, Facebook and other things. I have actually been able to do almost complete sentences by predictions alone.

    I've tried a number of them and found I don't like swiping much. My finger's always blocking the letter I want to swipe to I guess. The one I really love is SwiftKey X - it predicts words I haven't even started typing yet!! I guess it bases it on what I've written in the past although sometime it seems to be related to the post I'm replying to. I don't know how, but I can sometimes type almost a whole sentence by just picking the word they predict. Very cool - and fun!

    I use Swype but Slide it is virtually the same thing right?? What would be the advantages of using Slide It. Convince me, and I'll buy it lol

    I tried the swype, typing is still faster. As for Swiftkey, its been lagging on me. Maybe it doesn't support razr?

    Yes, it is a multi-touch and swipe type keyboard - I never could adapt to swype...I didn't like how the suggestions showed up and it never seemed very accurate for me. It was also not very customizable...SlideIt is accurate, customizable and it just feels better to me...I know everyone has different opinions and Swype is very popular...I am a swipe typer (90% of the time) and needed a keyboard that I liked - that is where SlideIt came in as does Ultra Keyboard.
