    I had an iphone for two years and I was able to type very fast with it even though my hands are very large. The auto correct fixed almost
    everything I mistyped. Now I have a Droid Razr and I can't type worth a **** on it. I misspell everything I type due to my large thumb. I tried swiftkey and it was a little better but not much. I dont like how you have to manually select the word suggestions. I much prefer the
    iphone style where they were fixed automatically as you type. Are there any apps that make the keyboard similar to the iphone one? Any other suggestions?

    Have you tried Swype, or Swype beta online?

    Skype is very good, but these things are like trying to pick your favorite child.

    I hate Swift key X for example but many like.

    There is a iPhone emulator on the market /play store what ever its called.

    SwiftKey should auto complete your suggestions. Just go in to the settings and then go to advanced and make sure the "space bar will..." setting is set to complete current word.

    My advice would be to spend about fifteen minutes to a half-hour really getting to know Swype; do the tutorials, practice a bit, get to know the special features like the number pad and editing palette, etc. It's a very small time investment for a very big payoff. Remember the days of taking a four week class to learn a program? Thirty minutes isn't a lot to ask.

    Swype does take a lot to get used to. Have you tried using Go Keyboard?

    I use Ultra Keyboard. You can customize the height and width of the keys and the auto correct seems like what you are looking for. The developer is always working on it to improve things and or take suggestions.

    Here is the 48 hour fully functional trial

    I never realized the potential of Swype until I saw someone that was proficient using it. It can be an unbelievably fast input method once you get good. I use it all the time now.

    Swype allows me to create a text in 5 seconds that would take 20-30 seconds to type out. Yes there is a little bit of a learning curve, but after a few days you'll be so good with it you'll never know how you ever lived without it.

    I compare it to going from rotary dial to touchpad dialing (most of you are too young to remember that), it does make me much more efficient.

    The thing for me was that I used Swype for close to six months and I never did get used to it.
