The Z2 is my first Android phone, I got used to how pretty the Xperia one is, but I like Swiftkey better (The space bar is much better..) Anyone know of an Xperia skin for it?

I think xperia's is pretty much equal to swift but I don't use swipe, predictical words etc
However the xperia is a bit easier to press the right button most likely to the wider gap between the buttons.

There's no "xperia skin" on swiftkey But I use the "Classic White" skin/theme. It looks pretty good with Stock texting app.

If you can't find where to switch Themes its at Swiftkey app > themes. Or you could pull up your keyboard and just click themes.

Xperia keyboard is good but i once you use swyping and predictive text, you cant compare. Espeically with predictive text, you hardly have to ever type out a full word, often just a few letters and then it predicts your next word. The predictive text engine on Swift is much smarter than Xperia in how it adapts to your writing style. Its just that Swift is slow regarding swyping compared to Swype or Touchpal but its getting better.
Theres other little things like if you swype a word with Xperia theres no gesture to easily delete the whole word vs characters at a time which Touchpal, Swype, Swift etc all handle.
Xperia did just update in the play store though to increase the spacebar length that many complained about

There is another KK keyboard in the play store, very close to stock but with options like a number row on top and it works reasonbly well too

You mean like this?

This is the xperia int. kb and I took it to compare against Swype and like I said, I don't relay on swipe.
Only predictive suggestions since I go postal when I forget to set predictions to "Never want to have words or letters replaced" when flashing/coming on a new ROM and every single word I type is wrong (damn autocorrect anyone?)

It's really not that hard, just like typing on your computer and I personally think it's better for your vocabulary to actually type the words rather than taking shortcuts but that's just me

For me the best is A.I.Type with Dusk Blue theme, on my Z2 (D6503) with RomAur 3.5 themed black (really fascinating).
