With Swype and FlexT9, I started out with a fairly great replacement keyboard and somehow through prolonged interaction with me, they both became—for lack of a better word—meh. Perhaps that was due to my not looking closely enough at what I was accepting as a word guess, or maybe it was the fault of Miller Light or writing in three different languages (and none of them very well). Whatever the case may be, my HTC EVO keyboard apps go downhill quickly.
Enter Swiftkey X, which was just in beta a few weeks ago and already scoring high marks from users back then. The keyboard sports a neat little next-word prediction feature that picks the correct next word you would be typing roughly 33% of the time, which means you end up typing fewer words. It supports nine different languages (three simultaneously), although you can save space by not installing extra languages by default, and can learn from how you write on Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and your text messages to personalize a keyboard that works better for you.
SwiftKey X is free from the Amazon Appstore for the next 24 hours. It normally goes for around $4, so go ahead and give it a whirl.[Amazon Appstore]
