When it comes to typing on your Android capacitive touch screen, this operation cannot always run smoothly, if you are relying on the native keyboard that comes with it. Getting a custom keyboard app is what you should do to suddenly transform a Droid into a power user’s best-kept secret. Here are the Top 5 Best Android Keyboard Apps that you should check out :-

1. Anysoft Keyboard

Anysoft keyboard app is compatible with all Android 1.5 devices or higher, and has a key arrangement that is detached. It comes with several advantages such as support for more than one language dictionaries that allow you to spell correctly without having to add a custom word to the dictionary. There is auto capitalization of the first word after the full stop, a very handy feature, especially when you are using your phone to write official emails. You get an auto correct option by default that relies on the custom dictionary that you chose.

New tricks specific to the Anysoft keyboard are: double tap on space to type a period, press space once to change from number to letter, swipe gestures, and usage of volume keys to navigate typed text. If your language is not part of the custom dictionary or available for download, you will have to wait until developers work on it.

2. Hacker’s Keyboard

When you try several Android keyboards, you will realize that most of them miss some keys, deemed less frequently used by most users. For the person who hands a true keyboard on their phone, the Hacker’s keyboard Android app is the solution. It comes with a complete key layout that you would find in the traditional laptop or desktop keyboard.

The developers took hint from the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard. It gives you a separate interface for number keys, arrow keys, and punctuation keys all in the normal places. You can change the keyboard layout as you would on the PC, to American, Arabic and a host of other languages. You will get five rows of keys for all language formats, and each will be at its traditional space. This keyboard is for someone working with terminal emulators who must use TAB, CTLR or arrow keys but will work great with anyone.

3. Swype

Swype is a keyboard that works best for a fast typist, because it allows you to move your finger from one key to another without lifting it form the touchscreen. It might get a little odd, when two keys are on the opposite ends of the keyboard, but after a while, you get used to it.

5. Smart Keyboard

Smart keyboard pro is the best tool for you if you want to customize the look and feel of your keyboard. For example, you can resize the keys and create shortcuts. It is possible to lock the keyboard, and by default, it supports multi touch. The smart keyboard will let you press and hold to type a symbol, instead of pressing the numbers key and then looking for a symbol key to press.
