LOVE IT!!! It's great to have this more stock keyboard to use. I don't like my LG Keyboard and don't really like Swype. Thank you so much! LG REVO

My favorite keyboard. Amazing. I only use this one now. Word correction Is just perfect. Typing can be really fast. Not to many lags in typing. 5 star

Its a great keyboard for those of us stuck not ever getting gingerbread, encourages faster typing, but sometimes mis-reads letters.

Didn't like either of the stock options on the Epic 4G Touch (swype or samsung). Was going to push this keyboard apk manually but install from market is much simpler. Works like a charm!

I love this keyboard! But...yesterday, arrow keys came up on the bottom. I don't know how I got them there or how to get rid of them. Help me please!

There's just something I find sexy about the color scheme...wish the font on the keys was a little less blah, though

Thanks for making this available! Would love to be able to use TitaniumBackupPro to convert this to a system App. Oh well.

It worked great in Samsung vibrant galaxy s but on my htc sensation it looks and feels wrong because of qhd display that formats oddly. Needs update

Great keyboard for the price FREE! Only bad thing is the keyboard is small and the period is way too close to.space bar :-\
