Keyboards are the new hot thing as Apple now allows developers to use third party keyboards in their apps, this has forced Android keyboard apps to improve their current software to beat the competition on this new platform and also updating their older apps on Android. In recent updates we saw mayor changes to the SwiftKey keyboard with many improvements being added, we also saw changes to the Minuum keyboard, so which one is best?
Swiftkey is currently the best keyboard app available on Android. It was previously available for $3.99 but is now free. The app now has its own “Theme store” where users can purchase new themes that will completely modify their keyboard. The keyboard also has some outstanding features like:
- Personalized Predictions
- Smart autocorrector
- Customizable layouts
- Emoji prediction which predicts the emoji you might want to use
- Swiftkey Flow
2. Fleksy Keyboard
Fleksy is right up there with SwiftKey and it was hard to decide which one deserved the number 1 spot. Fleksy is also a free keyboard available for Android and better known as the “Fastest keyboard in the world”. Fleksy stands out in its own way and doesn’t have the ton of features SwiftKey has, which is exactly what makes the app so awesome. The simpler yet easier to use keyboard allows you to type just what you want without having to deal with a hundred different moving and changing parts while you type a word. The app also has some amazing gesture based controls which can easily accomplish tasks such as punctuation, spaces, hit return, add words to your personal dictionary and much more.
3. Minuum Keyboard
With the Minuum keyboard it is all about the screenspace. Less keyboard and more screen but still till allows you to type delightfully fast and surprisingly sloppy. The app is well known for its incredible powerful autocorrector and tiny keyboard.
