not sure if it is the place, but I am trying to get an Open Source keyboard for Android, I rather not use the Google Keyboard but it is the best I tried, I tried AnySoftKeyboard from F-droid but It has some “features” that do not work that great and the guessing is much worse. I don’t need perfect but good enough
Wondering if any of you know any
Thanks in advance
I use Openboard or Florisboard. Openboard doesn’t have swipe typing though but it does have great text prediction. Florisboard is not bad but it’s predictions are totally bonkers and it’s auto complete can be not even real words. The AOSP keyboard is good as well but lacks two features the other two have that I really like.
I have to admit I get a bit jittery about switching in a new keyboard app because if it fails to work properly it could devastate usability of basically everything, so it’s useful to see recommendations from folks here. Thank you! I’m willing to try alternatives now
Just press and hold the space key and you can swap to and from any keyboard you have installed. If you want to try something kinda “out there” but neat-o, there’s a keyboard called 8Vim. It arranges the letters on the axis of an X and you loop around in different directions to choose letters. It’s neat, one handed and pretty natural motion. Steep learning curve though.
