Excerpt from “10 best Android keyboards apps reviewed and rated” by JR Bookwalter on TechRadar.com
When it comes to movies, the first in a series is almost always the best. The same also applies to Android, which had customizable, third-party keyboards long before Apple ever dreamed of adding this feature to iOS 8.
Over the years, developers have knocked out some impressive wares for text entry on smartphones and tablets, meaning there are more choices than ever before – literally hundreds of them are on Google Play alone!
Thankfully, TechRadar is here to whittle this enormous list down to only 10 of the best options, and there’s something here for every kind of typist. We’ve even tossed in a few eccentric and off-the-beaten path options you may not be aware of.
A holdover from our previous list of nine best Android keyboards, Adaptxt (free) still gets our nod as one of the most beautiful available. We’ve previously described it as having a “spacious and airy layout” with translucent graphics that give off a premium laptop vibe, and those words still apply nearly three years later.
With support for more than 90 languages – the most of any keyboard we could find – Adaptxt includes location-based suggestions, corrections and predictions with a unique 12-key layout, plenty of great themes and loads of personality.
Download this if… You appreciate good looks and functionality.
Avoid this if… It’s just too damned sexy for your device.
