The 'flicking' feature is an improvement over other keyboards that combine multiple letters on one key. However, the keyboard seems to have some persistent bugs. Most frustrating is that the prediction system frequently fails. This makes it very hard to type fast because at any point your typing could just become gibberish because no predictions or corrections are being made. I reported this problem to the developer and the response was to add an option to disable predictions/corrections altogether!

I have used a number of keyboards on my Android phone, and really wasn't 100% happy with any of them. I normally 'only' like full Qwerty keyboards, as I prefer to type and never was very fast at texting on a standard mobile phone keypad. But, within a very short space of time, I found that i could type much faster on this than any other Android keyboard I had tried. The majority of what you want is on the main screen, and the cursor keys are handy if you don't have then on your phone like my desire hd.

I loved this keyboard! Especially the F keys. the only problem that I had was that the application force closed something like 50 times a day. Every time I looked at my phone I was clicking the go ahead and force close button. I uninstalled Adv Task thinking maybe that was closing the keyboard and causing probs, but that didn't help. I finally just gave up and uninstalled. I'd love to go back to it if the force closes could be fixed.

Best keyboard I have tried several different software keyboards and this one is the best. I tend to prefer compact keyboards because rotating the phone to use a full QWERTY is such a pain on my HTC Hero because the lag before the screen re-orients is too long and the only thing you can see in this mode is the text you are entering. Compared to the size of the keys in the built-in compact keyboard which use rows of 5 keys, the 6-key per row layout of Keypurr makes a huge difference. I love the all-in-one layout.

Auto suggestion needs a lot of work. Does not take into account previously entered characters for better auto correct words.

I know I sound like a broken record, but Keypurr is nothing short of phenomenal and light years ahead of all the many other keyboards I've tried. Take them up on their 1 month money back guarantee. You'll never go back to Swiftkey, Swype or any of these variants UPDATE: I have been switching back and forth between Keypurr and Swiftkey. Overall, there's a solid, confident feel I get from Keypurr that just makes thoughts flow better for me. I can't recommend this more.

Simply the best soft keyboard! Has a bit of a learning curve, but not a steep one. For max. benefit it's worth setting up personal abbrevs. & F-keys.

Love this keyboard best one I've found so far. Runs smooth I just wish it had a standard layout to

Tried swype, slideit, perfect keyboard, all of them. Finally found this one. Symbol and dictionary integration is by far the best. Finally happy!

For me this is an indispensable app. Texting and typing is now a pleasure. There is a learning curve but well worth it in return for easy input.
