MinuumMinuum

sometimes minimalist is best and that’s what Minuum is going for here. It has features like next word prediction and completion like other keyboards, but unlike most other keyboards it only takes up a small portion of the screen(essentially one line plus the word prediction above the letter row). However it does allow users to have a more normal size keyboard as well if you prefer to type that way. It also offers smart watch support, emojis, cursor control, and a nifty little feature to float the keyboard so you can still type while moving between apps. Minuum boasts fast, sloppy typing and urges users not to worry about accuracy as Minuum will take care of that for you. We say put it to the test.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

SwypeSwype

Swype is probably the oldest third party keyboard experience on this entire list, and its managed to stay one of the top keyboards through all its time on the Android platform. Swype features some of the best word prediction out there, and for most people it still offers the best and fastest swipe typing experience. Swype also offers themes based off of major sports teams like the Seattle Sounders. It also features personal dictionary and backup sync, language downloads, tablet keyboards, and gestures for different quick actions.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Google KeyboardGoogle Keyboard

The Google Keyboard used to be found only on the stock Android devices but they eventually dropped the app on the Play Store for anyone to enjoy, which was a smart move as the keyboard offers up a really accurate typing experience. It has the next word prediction like many other keyboards, space-aware gesture typing, a handful of different themes including some that are material design, keypress popup animations, voice typing, and dictionaries for more than 25 different languages. Hands down if you want a minimal keyboard with a few different theme options but is extremely accurate and fast, Google Keyboard should be your go-to, and it’s free.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

SwiftkeySwiftkey

Swiftkey is another keyboard that has been around a while, although not nearly as long as Swype. Swiftkey includes many great features like the flow typing option if you like swiping your finger across the screen to type, tons of themes to customize your typing experience, emoji and emoji prediction, personalized predictions by learning from your apps like gmail, SMS, and social feeds, and much more. The best part about Swiftkey is that learns. When you use it and type up words in your social and messaging apps, it’ll begin to learn how you speak and store those words for later use, ever expanding its own dictionary. It also has the ability to store your writing style in the cloud so you can re-sync things on a new device.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1
