    I use Swype mainly, but another (free) one is TouchPal.

    I use Perfect Keyboard. I'm used to slide-out keyboards so it's taking a while to get acclimated but this app helped.

    + 2 for SwiftKeyX. Not free, although I did get it free when it was the Amazon free app of the day.

    SwiftKey X. I had the trial, which is timed,and once it expires, you lose the predictions. I let it expire and then tried some other ones, but I couldn't find one I liked as much. So I came back to it and ended up buying it because of the predictions.

    I got it when it was offered for 10 cents, but I uninstalled it as I would rather swipe than tap. Just a personal preference, nothing bad about the keyboard itself.

    That's a point; several keyboards are for tapping and others for swiping. That's going to be a part of what you're deciding on. If you prefer to tap then Swiftkey is the way to go.

    Swype comes pre-installed in the Bionic. The problem is that you won't get an update unless you root, uninstall and get the account.

    Honestly I use ICS keyboard and works perfect on my Bionic. Swift key is alright but I kept hitting the cursor buttons at the bottom and typing words out of place. Really got annoying for me. After using the nexus for 2 weeks the ICS keyboard is the best for me. Love it.

    You can remove those cursor buttons in the settings. Go to settings > language and keyboard > SwiftKey settings > theme. Then just uncheck the arrow key box. :)
