Adaptxt rated 5/5 among the 10 best Android keyboards

Excerpt from “10 best Android keyboards apps reviewed and rated” by JR Bookwalter on TechRadar.com

 

When it comes to movies, the first in a series is almost always the best. The same also applies to Android, which had customizable, third-party keyboards long before Apple ever dreamed of adding this feature to iOS 8.

Over the years, developers have knocked out some impressive wares for text entry on smartphones and tablets, meaning there are more choices than ever before – literally hundreds of them are on Google Play alone!

Thankfully, TechRadar is here to whittle this enormous list down to only 10 of the best options, and there’s something here for every kind of typist. We’ve even tossed in a few eccentric and off-the-beaten path options you may not be aware of.

Adaptxt

A holdover from our previous list of nine best Android keyboards, Adaptxt (free) still gets our nod as one of the most beautiful available. We’ve previously described it as having a “spacious and airy layout” with translucent graphics that give off a premium laptop vibe, and those words still apply nearly three years later.

With support for more than 90 languages – the most of any keyboard we could find – Adaptxt includes location-based suggestions, corrections and predictions with a unique 12-key layout, plenty of great themes and loads of personality.

Download this if… You appreciate good looks and functionality.

Avoid this if… It’s just too damned sexy for your device.

Verdict: 5/5

All of the College Spirit keyboards also feature the glide and gesture texting, which allows users to simply slide their finger across the keyboard from letter to letter to type out their words. You can even customize the Glide feature in settings and set up gesture shortcuts.

I found the college spirit keyboards to be easy to use and surprisingly accurate when it came to typing. I was able to type things up fairly quickly with little to no error, which can be an important quality when you need to get out messages in a pinch. Although each separate college spirit keyboard costs $2.99, the capability to customize by choosing which school suits you best with a large selection at your fingertips was nice to see. The private mode was also a handy little feature, enabling users to turn off the keyboard’s learning capabilities at any time so it stops learning from your messages, emails and social posts etc.

Ratings

  • Speed (5/5) – The speed of the keyboard was quick and navigating through the settings menu seemed to be fluid and seamless.
  • Features (4.5/5) – Adaptxt’s college spirit keyboards have plenty of features that any user should love, from gesture typing to region-based predictions.
  • Theme (4/5) – The theme for each school is well-represented displays school colors boldly
  • Overall (5/5) – Between the customization features and the prediction options, the college spirit keyboards have much to offer.

Pros

  • Support for tons of languages.
  • Keyboard features specific to certain types of industries making things easier for professionals.
  • Private mode to turn off the learning aspects of the keyboard.
  • regional-based dictionary and word predictions
  • Additional Keyboard skins for specific schools

Cons

  • Would like to have seen more school themes. Some users may not like that their school isn’t included.

Overall Adaptxt college spirit keyboards are a great little keyboard for Android. The ability to customize and represent your school’s team colors and mascot will be more than enough for some users, but the added benefits of region-based predictions and dictionary will be a huge help. The massive library of language support is also a big bonus allowing nearly anyone the ability to type with Adaptxt in their native tongue. If you’re a big college sports fan and will be knee deep in March Madness this month, one of these keyboards should fit right in to represent your team.

TUAW weighs in on Adaptxt: “It’s pretty magical.”

When you’re getting comfortable in a new neighborhood like iOS, it helps to get the inside scoop from folks who’ve been there a long time. That’s certainly true of TUAW, which has been looking at Apple products since 2004 — three years before the iPhone made its debut!   TUAW writer Mel Martin has given Adaptxt a spin and calls it “a winner,” mentioning the “boatload of languages” it supports and that it’s “just as responsive as the Nuance Swype keyboard.” He also notes:

The software generally figures out what you are typing and inserts the correct word. You don’t even need to press the space bar, instead just pausing and going on to the next word. It’s pretty magical.

That’s thanks to our team of wizards — software and language wizards, that is. Mel closes out the post by telling readers they should really be checking out third-party keyboards for iOS. With encouragement like this, just think of what we may be able to do on the iPhone 1000.

CBSNews.com calls third-party iOS keyboards “a revelation.”

The support of third-party keyboards in iOS 8 continues to be cited as one its most popular features. In a piece titled, “New Keyboards Might Be the Best Part of iOS 8,” CBSNews.com writer Dave Johnson steps readers through setting up and selecting keyboards like Adaptxt, which he calls an “excellent choice.” He notes:

[B]eing able to replace the Apple keyboard with alternatives that might better suit your typing style and preferences is a good thing. And when you spend a little time with iOS 8, it doesn’t take long to wonder how you ever got along without the option to change keyboards.

Dave goes on to talk about the advantages of swiping; gliding your fingers across the software keyboard to form words rather than tapping each individual letter. It’s something that isn’t possible with the built-in keyboard today, and just one of the handy text entry aids we’ve put into Adaptxt that allow you to write your way.
