Default I need an android keyboard

Don't even mention Swiftkey. I ****ing hate it and its inability to have anything but letters on the main keyboard. Either give me a number row or let me long press and show me what the hell I'm going to get when I do a long press.

The Samsung keyboard is exactly the layout I but the auto correct and prediction is ****.

Why is it so difficult to have a decently sized keyboard with long press capability? I despise typing on phones. They keep making them taller and no ****ing wider for men with normal sized hands.

You can add the Number row in Swiftkey's typing settings. Swiftkey does let you long press and shows what you get when you do. You can also resize the Keyboard.

Search for Swiftkey in your app list to get to the settings. You can customize the layout to your liking.

Swiftkey is really bad on Android nowadays. It's not accurate at all, comes up with stupid suggestions, and tracks my finger input extremely poorly. It's weird because it's way better on the iPhone.

I'm using the stock Google one right now, it's decent, much better at swipe typing than Swiftkey.

SwiftKey doesn't have key hints on all the time. Long pressing just to see what the options are is useless when you have to go through 15 keys to find the one that comma is on.

Maybe I just forgot the number row because I always had to go to the second screen to add a damn symbol. It's just a stupidly thought out keyboard for all the other customization it has. Something as simple as tool tips on display like my image above should be the norm.

You don't have to go thru 15 keys to find the comma. It's on the same location as the Samsung keyboard. I don't understand your problem. it looks just like the Samsung keyboard. What are key hints? Are you talking about the second keys above the letters?

Well the swiftkey I had did not have those tips on display full time. Maybe I missed that setting but I looked everywhere. If I still had it installed I'd show you, but now I guess I'll go reinstall it and take a look. They were all blank keys for me.


EDIT: Yep, what the ****. I must have been stuck on an old version or something because all the keys were blank aside from letters. Now it actually may be usable.
