I have a question for the Android users on this forum. Do you use third party keyboards on your device such as Swype, Swiftkey, Go Keyboard or Smart keyboard.

Going to have to go with swiftkey. I have tried most of them, but swiftkey really does the job the best, for my Nexus 4 at least.

Funny enough, the stock android 4.2 keyboard is really good, and for me, is the only keyboard that comes close to swiftkey.

I have the Emoji keyboard because the built in one makes this annoying clicking sound that can't be turned off.

When I had an Android 2.x phone I think the keyboard I used the most was SwiftKey, but the stock keyboard in Android 4.2 is currently my favorite.

My HTC rezound has an awesome stock touch keyboard. I like it for its accuracy, and the way it does the auto-complete. Never tried a 3rd party keyboard on it, because ive had no complaints about it!

Swype is still the best keyboard ever. It is the ONLY thing I miss about Android after moving to my iPhone 5. I used to be able to send messages at lightning speed. The only downside was you had to clear the learned words every once in a while so it could maintain solid accuracy. Otherwise it's the best and I think everyone should use it. At first it REALLY sucks, but when you get the hang of it. It's the best thing ever invented!
