    I recently installed a new rom (cyanogen simply red) to my droid 1 and lost all my predictions (8 months worth) and now its not saving any more. If I can't resolve this issue (I haven't really tried any backups or really anything yet), which is the best keyboard in your professional opinion? I'm kinda curious...... been using SwiftKey for so long now, maybe it's time for a change.

    Your predictions are stored on your sd card in the Swifykey folder. The file name is dyn.lm4. Switching ROMS shouldn't cause you to lose them.

    I have been using Swiftkey since beta, and I love it. I also have swype, but I just don't use it enough to really use it well.

    Me too, its very unfortunate I have to lose all those predictions........I contacted them and they told me I have to just reinstall and start over. Where can I get swype? I can't seem to find it anywhere

    You have to sign up for the beta to get it. Not sure if it is still open right now or not though. Anyway you can sign up here

    I LOVE Swiftkey, but my new favorite has got to be FlexT9! It has a regular keyboard, a swype like keyboard, and then there's the main selling point- the voice to text function uses Dragon dictation! Voice to text is super accurate using this, I used it for this whole post! I love never having to type anything again LOL

    I just installed FlexT9 and like it better than swype or swiftkey. Amazon has it as their free app today, which I discovered a few hours after purchasing it.:blink:

    Wasn't impressed with flex at all. SwiftKey is still my favorite.

    I usually use Swiftkey, but did DL Flex this morning. After using it for just today, I can say that I'll keep both. The voice recog is amazing with Flex, and I can swype with it too. I can see using both for different situations.

    I've used swiftkey ever since I got my droid and have been flashing roms almost as long. I only ever lost predictions once and I never was sure why but ever since then i've always backed up and restored the app data with tibu and I haven't had any problems with it yet.

    I think smart keyboard pro is the best keyboard I've ever tried.

    I downloaded FlexT9 only because it was free today. I'm very impressed with it. Trace Input (ie. swiping) spikes CPU very frequently though.

    Edit: I'm keeping FlexT9 as my primary voice dictation engine.
    Switching back to stock multi-touch keyboard to conserve battery.

    I like the flex T9 keyboard. But I went into settings and removed the swipe features. I like the iphonish like keys.

    I was about to post about Flex. I have been using it since Amazon gave it away and love it so far. Only thing I wish was different was the ability to change the swype color.
