5 Android keyboards to try immediately



our default keyboard on smartphone or Android Tablet does not always suit us perfectly: speed, fluidity, size of letters and simply available characters can be improved. Fortunately, there are many applications to improve your experience of taking notes on Android. 





Minuum: to maximize the use of space


If you are looking for a keyboard that is out of the ordinary, Minuum is an option to consider. The application allows indeed fully to take advantage of the compact screen of your Android smartphone. And if your smartphone is more than 5 inches, Minuum can change your life. It is indeed one of the most intuitive keyboards of the Play Store.


Although not the fastest, Minuum is a great keyboard for those who want to be able to see more posts of their conversation on the screen while they’re typing a response. The keyboard is indeed near the bottom of the screen and you will be able to see more content.


The keyboard requires a time of adaptation since the letters are on the same line and not in alphabetical order.

Swiftkey: for its artificial intelligence


If you are one of those who always fall next to the desired key Swiftkey will please you.

Swype: the best for swype


Swype is one of the first to have launched the keyboard sliding on Android system. Overall, it gives exactly the same features as Swiftkey, but with a somewhat different ergonomics. Both are free, advice: try both. 


The application also uses artificial intelligence to learn your handwriting style and adapt its suggestions. This is also valid for emoji. The interface is also very clean. Finally, be aware that there are a variety of options, including a “thumb” intriguing mode, which creates a space between the half left and half right of the keyboard. In addition, SwiftKey is excellent to handle several languages and is one of the only keyboards on which you don’t need to manually exchange between them. Simply choose the languages that you want to use in the parameters, and the prediction of the text and special characters will automatically work for all languages. That’s very smart.
