Best Android tablet keyboards compared: Adaptxt vs FloatNSplit vs Swiftkey 3 vs Thumb keyboard [video]

There are a lot of great advantages about using a smartphone and tablet for all your daily needs. Unfortunately, writing/typing isn’t one of them. Yes, a quick SMS, a reminder note, even a reply to an urgent email are easy enough and convenient, especially when you’re on the move. But, would I be writing an article like this on my tablet? Probably not.

That being said, the tablet is slowly becoming the medium that many consumers use to create notes, presentations, and articles. There’s a long way to go before this becomes the norm, but it’s definitely a growing trend. Features such as auto-completion, word prediction, and auto-correct are going a long way in making “writing” on a handheld device simple, fast, and accurate.

There is no shortage of third-party tablet keyboards available on the Google Play Store, with some, obviously, being better than others. More importantly, each keyboard introduces a set of unique features that suits the user’s individual needs.

Following our video comparison of the best Android keyboards for smartphones, we have another video comparison up for you! This time, it’s the best Android tablet keyboards available on the Google Play Store. Making the shortlist are the Adaptxt, FloatNSplit, Swiftkey 3, and Thumb keyboard apps. Let’s take look!

Best Android keyboards for smartphones compared: Adaptxt vs Swiftkey X vs SlideIT vs stock ICS [video]

Typing is an essential part of the experience of using an Android device. Most of us type everyday, be it text messages, emails, posts, memos, or simple searches. When typing on an Android smartphone becomes cumbersome, productivity hits rock bottom. It’s no wonder that many Android keyboard developers compete to create the most versatile and intuitive keyboard for Android.

Many users are looking for more speed, more accuracy, and a well rounded user interface. Picking the right keyboard for Android smartphones is often a long string of trials and errors.

For all of you Android users looking for a keyboard that suits your needs and tastes, we’ve prepared a video comparison where we pitted together some of the most popular keyboards on Google Play. We have chosen the following keyboards for this comparison: Adaptxt, Swiftkey X, SlideIT, and the stock ICS keyboard.

Adaptxt Tablet Beta, The Free But Intelligent Keyboard

Of all the countless free keyboard app available in the Google Play, the Adaptxt Tablet is a class apart. The fact that the developers, KeyPoint Technologies are giving it as a free download, does not mean that they have made a mediocre keyboard app. Adaptxt Tablet is one of the more advanced and intelligent keyboard apps available for tablets.

The key feature that makes it so easy to use is it’s intelligent algorithm. Apart from the usual word suggestion, the app also manages to quite effectively predict the next word that you might use in the sentence that you are typing.

ATR or Automatic Text Replace is another useful feature, which basically lets you assign an automatic text replace shortcut to a word phrase, using which will automatically type a whole sentence that you have assigned to the shortcut. Very useful to avoid typing phrases that you frequently use.

KeyPoint’s Adaptxt keyboard enters beta for Android tablets, adds handwriting for that extra touch

Aftermarket keyboard layouts are still relatively rare among tablets, which makes KeyPoint Technologies’ new Adaptxt beta for Android tablets that much more valuable. Along with optionally splitting up the keyboard to make thumb typing that much gentler, it expands on the stock keyboard formula with aggressive word prediction and shortcuts for words or whole sentences. The wait for a tablet version has also rewarded the patient with a handwriting recognition extra, just in case they’d like to revive cursive writing as an art form. The beta is is free to use for anyone who’s running at least Android 2.3 on a big-screened slate, although only for a “limited period” — if you’re willing to accept a few rough edges, we’d recommend hitting the source links before there’s a price tag attached.
