    I want something like I had on my OG Droid, which automatically added a space after an auto-completed word. Also, I find myself hitting the 'period' key when I'm trying to hit the spacebar, so something with a longer spacebar? Sounds nitpicky, I know, but I'm sure there's something out there that would be an improvement on the phone's stock keyboard.

    I use thumb keyboard.....it adds the space and there are different configurations you can set the keyboard. I have mine split, so there is two spacebars, can use the left one and no more hitting g the . by mistake..

    Try the tree version and see how you like it

    How about one that has the comma on the qwerty screen? Big pita changing screens just for a comma that I use a lot.

    SwiftKey is a good option. The option to adjust the time delay makes it so much faster. It also counts how many keystrokes you save by using the recommended words and longpress feature. It also has a separate key for a comma and question mark.

    Flex T9 is pretty good.

    My choices in this order.
    Swiftkey
    Smart Keyboard
    Perfect Keyboard
    Swiftkey is the best IMO. Aside that it doesnt work with Firefox, its the best keyboard for me.

    That's exactly what I was looking for, but wasn't quite sure how to phrase it. So if I could have a keyboard that combines that, the extra-long spacebar for my fat, mongoloid sausage thumbs, AND which retains the "cursor" keys on my stock keyboard . . . well, let's just say I'll be a happy man.

    SwiftKey just released their update to the public. Search the market for SwiftKey X Beta. It's pretty much crazy awesome.

    I installed early this morning and I like the layout. I feel as if I can type faster with much less errors.

    so far I really do like!

    Does the Gingerbread keyboard retain the cursor keys that are on the stock keyboard?
