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.

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.

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.

Of course, not everyone is willing to spend money and time trying out new keyboards.

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.
