I have to say i don't love this keyboard and frankly it is hard to notice the diff between this and the one that was on here before i flashed GingerBlur ROM

I can't believe there's a Smiley face by default where i would prefer to have a Return key (there's not one there??)

am i missing something...what is everyone else using?

Coming from a hard kybd and having a tough time getting comfortable with the onscreen kybd still

I agree, I think the gb keyboard is crap compaired to other options available. Also not really a fan of the launcher either :- (

I use the new swype beta, really no complaints they made it more streamlined. Better keyboard is pretty good also. Thumb keyboard uses an interesting layout.

Have you tried using the multitouch GB keyboard from the Market aka "Keyboard from Android 2.3"? You can customize the size of the keys and the spacing. I tried to copy the dimensions of my iPhone4 keyboard spacing with it. I believe my settings are, from left to right, 85, 15, 15, 38.

Personally I use Better Keyboard. I couldn't get used to swype for typing words like too / to so I went with a multitouch. Better keyboard has better autocorrect than stock or swiftkey, so that's what I went with. Unfortunately you can't turn off the haptic feedback without getting the pay version, but oh well.

OMG....

I think I FU.. up

I did install the GB keyboard and the Multi-ling one as well...
Now I am in the situation that ALL my keyboards incl. the SWYPE keyboard have NO enter key but ALL have the "" smiley on the enter position ?????

How can I correct this????
Remove ALL keyboards? and reinstall???

To be honest I like the layout and skin on the GB board but to have no enter key is just ridiculous....???

On 'Keyboard from android gingerbread'

if you hold the space bar and pull it up, arrows will appear at the bottom which allow you to move through your text for that one letter you mis-typed.
