Greetings,

I have just wondered which QWERTY keyboard is the best to use in your Xperia Mini?
Do you use Swipe? Does it work on Mini well?
I wouldn't like to type SMS, emails etc. with old-fashioned way (using original numeric keyboard).

Thanks for every hint,
Cheers,
L1

Nope swype doesn't work, but u can try shapewriter, which works similiar to swype.

others which works well are AnySoftkeyboard(which i am currently using).

Thanks. I just tried AnysoftKeyboard and somehow it doesn't work. I have found it in my phone settings under Locale & Text with, it's ON, QWERTY Latin SET, but apparently I missed something. (I also checked the quick button in the right corner of the screen when writing a message).

Any suggestion how to make it work?

Touchpal
I am a big fan of Touchpal from my old phone (DSTL1) era. it works like a charm in my new X10Pro also. It brings one valuable feature to X10 the missing up/down scroll and editing features while typing/editing text/mails etc along with my fav cootek 2letter keyboard for easy typing.

The problem with the mini is, that the original keyboard shows the keys AND the inputfield/sendbutton. 3.party keyboards only show the keys, so that you will get problems with the inputfield in the original sms app... thats funking ****.

I would prefer a qwerty keyboard only in landscape mode. unfortunately there is no landscape mode for the default sms app.
