    Hello
    Is there an app to make the built in keyboard better? I seem to "fat finger" my keys.
    Thanks

    There's Swype and Swiftkey; both have a lot of fans. Swype is in the Bionic already and Swiftkey is in the Market.

    After long months of rejecting the idea of using Swiftkey, I must say that I thoroughly enjoy it. The keys do seem to be slightly larger, and the word predictor is well beyond what the stock android system does. Often times I find myself simply hitting words that Swiftkey suggests instead of needing to type even a part of the next word in a sentence.

    Yep, count me as a SwiftKey fan. Actually, it's SwiftKeyX now. Got it free as an Amazon FAOTD.

    I like superkeyboard. Don't hear much about it on the forum. Highly customizable, prediction is darn good.resize your keys,etc. Try it. There is a pro version too, which is what I have. On fact, I have every pro version of just about every keyboard there is. Ha ha. Not ALL installed of course, just the one I like at tbe time.^ω^

    Yeah, I'm down with SwiftKey as well. Had it on my OG Droid, put it on the wife's Droid X, and since I purchased it, I was able to just download it and put it on my Bionic. Excellent keyboard for my fat fingers, and like it was stated before, the word prediction is outta this world.

    This post is BIONIC!

    I have Swype, Swiftkey, etc, etc.

    The consistent problem I have is with the space bar and shift key. I need the space to be bigger. I type things with a V or B in between the words a LOT. I also hit shift when I meant to type the A.

    Anyone know of a keyboard that would allow me to shrink or enlarge individual keys?

    The SwiftKey 3 beta has a bigger space bar.

    I've got huge hands and big fingers. I've always had difficulty with all cellphones. A stylus works best for me.

    If you are a Swype fan -- Touchpal is a nice alternative. Its ability to discern the correct word despite sloppy swyping is quite impressive. And it's free.

    Try A.I. type keyboard, it is free in the play market. It is one of the best keyboards I have used so far.

    I am starting to get extremely frustrated with using this virtual keyboard all the time. Coming from my og Droid at first I didn't kind it at all since the buttons are so big on my bionic but lately for some reason I can't type a whole text without a bunch of typos n I can't begin to explaint how annoying it is that ALL the time I miss the spacebar n there are periods or the letter n in between my words. Id be temptedto get a d4 ifit wasn't for the non-removeable battery. I can't believe they did that! Ignite gonna be non-removeable then it shouldbat least be as big as the maxx n they should not have tried it out on such anbimportant Droid device. If it had a removeable battery then I'd be getting it because I miss my physical keyboard bad. Irk y I am so annoyed by the virtual one so much lately but its making me crazy. They need to make a thin Droid with a paper thin keyboard and a removeable battery. Or at least make it a razr maxx w a keypads by I am losing it on the virtual thing today

    Ben's, try a swype keyboard. I had the og Droid and thought I had to have a physical keyboard. Then I discovered swype and never went back to using the physical keyboard. It is so much faster and easier. People watch me and ask how I am typing bc they are so amazed that I am just swiping my finger across the keyboard. I am not sure if you after familiar with swype but all you do is place your finger on the first letter of the word you are typing and without taking your finger off the keyboard, you trace over the rest of the letters in your word. You don't even have to be exact in the letters you swipe over. Some swype apparently are better than others. I loved flex, worked great, was using the stock swype on this phone and it worked good and just recently started using go keyboard to try it out and I really like it. For much easier, quicker and more convenient than pecking each individual letter on a touch keyboard or a physical keyboard.

    Thanks for the advice, tismydroid. Yes, I've used swype b4... I didn't give it Much time tho. I'm gonna take ur advice n give it another try since I need a change. Ive been cool w the virtual for thepast 6 months but now I'm just sick of it. Idk... maybe I just never really got over my first Droid. I want an updated phone modeled after the original but with modern tingsnlike 4g bigger battery bigger screen gorilla glass etc
