    Can't install it on my Note 4 via the sideload APK. Looking forward to trying it out though. Seems like they've added some nice functionality.

    Probably. Think that was the only one available on APK Mirror. Forgot what the Note has. Figured that was the issue. Haha

    The bottom one in the link worked for me. It reminds me MUCH of Swype beta, and that's a good thing, as far as accuracy, speed and general layout.
    What I mean by accuracy is how sloppily I slide and it figures out what I much more than what I am used to. The trace line being back I don't mind either. My only "bugaboo" is it doesn't auto cap the I like I'm used to Swype auto correcting without having to have auto insert correction enabled.

    I stick with the Samsung stock keyboard as it's the only one that gives the option to access the full clipboard.

    Swype has gesture for my clipboard as well. It's why I have stuck with them for years. I think this Google one has made some great strides to almost catch up to Swype and Swift Key. The accuracy of slides, SKs biggest weakness, was my favorite improvement to be honest.
