Been using this for a while: when it works its great. However more and more it is lagging very hard. I write out a sentence and I look back and its done one word out of 10.
Went back to stock keyboard and OMG it feels so much better. They keep promising to fix this, but with every update the problem is still there

Was Using Swype with dragon trial. Liked it so purchased and now Amazon advising me that can't be used as company not updated license and app doesn't open. Not happy. Having to use Amazon keyboard as Swype keyboard stuck on keyboard style not happy with.

For its time, this was a great product. It takes some getting used to as it completely redefines the way you type on a smartphone, dragging between letters and letting the engine guess your intended work. Largely this works well, but there are times when its infuriating, just getting words or large parts of sentenced completely wrong meaning you have to go back and correct them. On the plus side, it'll put an end to mis-spellings, its just the mis-interpreted words that means you have to be vigilant.

This functionality is now built directly in to latter versions of Android, so if you are using Android 4.4 or above, you'll already have this, so save your money.

Its very good. However, this functionality is in-built in the Android operating system (I have both a Nexus 5 and 7), but is absent on the Amazon Kindle Fire. So has Amazon purposely disabled this so forcing people to buy the app? A bit of a cheek if you ask me.

I would really love this app if it did one small thing - put a space after a full stop so that the next sentence could start with a capital. Having to press the spacebar after a full stop is so old school (I know you have to swype from the full stop to the spacebar, but it adds additional work); swiftkey does it for you, as does google's own 'swype' style keyboard. Come on Swype, get your act together.

This keyboard is probably better than the stock one on my samsung note 2, but i find it cumbersome at times and could type more cleanly when not using predictive entry on the original one. Prediction is good on this however, and if the space bar were slightly bigger and there was a dedicate line for numbers it would get 4 stars. The voice recogniton feature seems poor, and i have given up trying to use that feature.

This is a very useful bit of kit.

I've not had it long but it really does the job for my device. I have a Samsung galaxy note 2, and this really suits stylus use. In fact using this is far easier than using the handwriting recognition feature.

As an aside, I am currently trying to learn a new language, German. The app has made things a lot easier because you can have several different dictionaries on the same keyboard. In this case German and English. Using Duolingo just became a much l less frustrating experience, particularly as you no longer need to worry about weird accents and stuff.

Well worth a go. Highly recommended.

Works when it wants, just bringing up the keyboard takes a while and prediction isn't great. Find myself constantly having to re edit messages due to auto correct going nuts. A wavy red line would be useful so users can proof read mistakes later
