15 best keyboard for Android apps

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off


The stock keyboard that comes on a device is usually passable, but always seems to leave one wanting something more. The good news is there is a lot of third party keyboard options and some of them are pretty spectacular. Which keyboard is best for you? We don’t know because everyone’s typing needs are different but in this list we’ll explore the best third party keyboard for Android options and hopefully that helps you find one that’s right for you. If you’d rather watch, we have a video above. Do note the list has been updated since the video came out so the most up to date list is below.


Adaptxt Keyboard best Android keyboardsAdaptxt Keyboard

[Price: Free / $0.99]
Adaptxt Keyboard is the last on our list and it’s one of the most unique. It has your standard options like text prediction and emojis so it’s a solid keyboard on its own. Its claim to fame, though, is its theming. You can theme literally every part of this keyboard on your own. So you can change the text color, font, keyboard color (or background if you’d like to use a picture), the trace color, and everything else. It’s an amazing option for people who like to theme. It’s free to try but to get everything you’ll have to pay $0.99 inside the app. For many, it’ll be worth it.
Get it on Google Play


AI Type Keyboard Best Android KeyboardsAI Type Keyboard Plus

[Price: $3.99]
First up on our list is AI Type Keyboard Plus. This is versatile keyboard gives you a lot of options all inside of an eye friendly interface. The various menus in this keyboard app look really well designed, and the keyboard is fairly accurate too. It also tries to compete with SwiftKey in terms of word prediction and it’s fairly accurate. The theming is top notch and it’s worth a shot.

best keyboard for Android appsFleksy Keyboard

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
It was pretty clear upon the release of Fleksy that its sole purpose of existence was to dethrone SwiftKey as the most popular keyboard out there. It has an above average prediction engine that looks at where you hit letters as opposed to the letters themselves which, in theory, is supposed to help figure out what you meant to type. There is also gesture typing, an invisible keyboard feature, and multiple language support. It been included on a recently released Android Wear device and it’s getting more popular every day. It’s free to try so why not?

Go Keyboard best Android keyboardsGO Keyboard

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
GO Keyboard suffers from the same stigma as other GO products. Some people absolutely love it and some people absolutely hate it. That said, GO keyboard is a fun option if you like your keyboard to look really busy. There are themes galore along with things like emoji support. The only issue is that it is really busy almost to the point of being cartoony. It is free, though, and that’s always a big plus.

Google Keyboard best Android keyboardsGoogle Keyboard

[Price: Free]
Of course we give the obligatory nod to the official Google Keyboard. This is the keyboard you’ll find on Nexus devices and, technically, qualifies as the stock keyboard. Even so, it has a lot of nice features like gesture typing, sentence gesture typing, and emoji support. It’s free and it’s pretty basic but if that’s all you need, this is all you’ll need.

Hacker's Keyboard best Android keyboardsHacker’s Keyboard

[Price: Free]
Next on our list is Hacker’s Keyboard. This keyboard app has been around for quite some time and has been consistently popular among its somewhat small, but loyal fanbase. One of the really cool features with this app is that it has the ability to set up a keyboard like you could find on any Windows computer which includes things like the function keys, alt, tab, ctrl, etc. You can resize the keyboard to four rows to make it look like your standard Android keyboard or you can set it independently based on rotation. So if you’re looking for a decent keyboard for portrait mode and a full-sized keyboard for landscape mode, Hacker’s Keyboard will do the job.

keymonk keyboardKeymonk Keyboard

[Price: Free / $3.99]
We intentionally didn’t include Keymonk before because the developer stopped supporting it sometime ago. However, after learning that a lot of people still use the keyboard –including our very own Josh Vergara– we decided to include it here. Keymonk is unique because it is the only keyboard that allows you to swipe with multiple fingers. Unlike Swype and Swiftkey, with Keymonk you can swipe words using two thumbs instead of one which ostensibly allows you to swipe out words even faster and with more comfort. Like many unique twists on the keyboard, it does take some getting used to but once you do, it’s an unusually speedy way to enter text.
Get it on Google Play


Kii Keyboard best Android keyboardsKii Keyboard

[Price: Free]
Kii Keyboard may not be the most unique keyboard on this list, but it’s still a very solid keyboard. It has the standard features like text prediction, emoji support, some theme elements, and gesture input. It also includes things like multiple keyboard layouts and 80 languages. At first glance it seems like just another keyboard but it is anything but that. If you’re looking for a solid option, look no further.
Get it on Google Play


best keyboard for Android appsMultiling Keyboard

[Price: Free]
Multiling keyboard is one of those apps that has always drifted right on the cusp of mainstream attention. It’s good enough to be included on this list but hasn’t managed to gain the attention of people like Swype or SwiftKey has. Multiling has a myriad of features including more than 130 languages supported, floating keyboard functionality, theming, a built in calculator, multiple layouts, and gesture typing. There is a new beta out right now that’s free and seems to be better received than its predecessor so that’s the one that we linked but you can always find the original done by the same developer.
Get it on Google Play


10 best keyboard for Android appsMinuum Keyboard

[Price: Free / $3.99]
Minuum is a newer keyboard that takes a different spin to typing. Instead of the traditional QWERTY keyboard, Minuum relies on a proprietary keyboard set up that, after you get used to it, can meet or exceed your current typing speed on the traditional layout. Its claim to fame is the ability to take up less than half of the screen real estate of regular keyboards and allow for a more sloppy typing style. It’s unique and if you’re not sure you want to drop the $3.99 on the full version, you can always give the free demo a try to see if it’s for you.

best keyboard for Android appsSlideIT Keyboard

[Price: Free / $3.99]
SlideIT is another keyboard app that is very well and can compete with keyboards like Swype and SwiftKey in terms of popularity. It’s been a Google Play Editor’s Choice app and currently sits with over six million downloads. SlideIT has the standard features for keyboards these days, including theming and gesture typing. One of its more unique features is the ability to half type, half-gesture words. So if you’re typing “enjoyable” you can type “enjoy” then gesture type “able” and it’ll know you mean the same word. The predictive text isn’t half bad either.
Get it on Google Play


Smart Keyboard PRO best Android keyboardsSmart Keyboard PRO

[Price: $2.75]
Smart Keyboard PRO has been competitor in the keyboard market for a very long time now. While it may not look like much at first, it has improved leaps and bounds compared to earlier versions of the keyboard in terms of functionality. However, one of its hallmark themes is still the Gingerbread >keyboard, which may put some people off. It can be themed although the process is a little difficult. It’s a solid keyboard and worth looking at.
Get it on Google Play


Swiftkey best Android keyboardsSwiftKey Keyboard

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Predictive text functionality in SwiftKey is considered some of the best in its niche. It’s also considered one of the best trace keyboards, and there’s even a few small things included that make SwiftKey a great all-in-one keyboard experience, such as stats on how efficient you are when typing and a truck load of theme options. Simply put, SwiftKey is one of the best keyboards you could ever use on your Android device. There are also tablet keyboard options and an option to move the keyboard to one side for use on larger phones.
Get it on Google Play


Swype best Android keyboardsSwype

[Price: $0.99]
You’re probably already familiar with Swype, as OEMs included it as a stock app on smartphones for years. The long-time champion of third-party keyboards is also now available in the Google Play Store for those that may not have it yet. It features wickedly accurate gesture typing and a very clean, smooth interface. This is one of the few keyboards that people prefer to Swiftkey on a regular basis and you can try it before you buy it.
Get it on Google Play


TouchPal X Keyboard best Android keyboardsTouchPal X Keyboard

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
TouchPal X Keyboard has been around for a while but only over the last year or so has it begun to distinguish itself from the pack. In recent updates, there is now sentence gesture typing, better emoji support and access, and support for 70 languages. Add to that the existing theme options and features and you have a really solid keyboard that’s worth checking out.

Samsung SM-A300 shows up in UAProf file

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

samsung_sm_a500_uaprof

After the Samsung Galaxy Alpha was released earlier this year, word got out that Samsung was working on a whole series of smartphones based on the metal chassis design. Despite the apparent “premium” design, the devices appear to be decidedly mid-range in nature. We have already seen several bits of information surface about the Samsung SM-A500 like a render that surfaced a few days ago. Now we have the first bits of info about the Samsung SM-A300 thanks to a UAProf file that was discovered.

Similar to the other “A series” smartphone, the SM-A300 comes with a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor and seems to run as slow as its sibling. In a GFX Bench entry for the device, it was listed as running at 1.2GHz while the UAProf file lists it at 1.4GHz. The SM-A300 gets 1GB of RAM and appears to come installed with 8GB of storage. The screen measures 4.8-inches and runs at 960 x 540 resolution. As far as cameras, the SM-A300 gets an 8MP and a 5MP camera, rear and front respectively, both capable of recording 1080p video. The good news is the device runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Watch Over Me – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Watch Over Me review

What is Watch Over Me

Watch Over Me is a GPS application that tracks your movements. If you’re not where you’re supposed to be the app will alert your emergency contacts so they can try to get a hold of you or seek help if need be. This is great for pretty much everyone.

Here’s how it works. Say you’re going for a run. You tell Watch Over Me how long you intend to be gone. If you don’t check in with the application at the appointed time, the app will send your GPS info to your emergency contacts. From there they can try to get a hold of you to make sure you’re okay, call the police, or an ambulance if need be.

You’ll have to sign up for an account and it does support Facebook sign up and log in if you happen to be a Facebook user. Otherwise it’s just a phone number, email, name, and password so it’s nothing difficult. You’ll also need to set your emergency contacts so the app knows who to get a hold of in case you aren’t where you’re supposed to be.

It works rather well and the interface is easy to use. It follows the Holo design standard which will make fans of that design happy. The only real bad thing is the app only includes a 3-day trial. From there you’ll need to fork out $24 per year or $3.99 per month to use the service. That has made some people mad.

Watch Over Me review

Tells people when you need help.

PROS
  • If you don’t check in as you schedule, your emergency contacts get a notification that something may be wrong along with your GPS coordinates so they can call for help.
  • Great for kids, women who are alone in questionable places, older people, people with health issues, disabled people, and pretty much everyone else.
  • Very simple interface. Sign up, put in your emergency contact info, and then it’s just a matter of using the timer.
  • Allows you to report crimes so other users of this app can see where the trouble areas are in your city.
  • Set GPS coordinates so Watch Over Me doesn’t track you when you’re at home, work, or school.
  • Trigger an emergency alert manually if need be.
CONS
  • The app really should use the words ’3-day trial’ somewhere in their app description along with the price of a premium subscription.
  • Account verification can be a pain if your device has issues with SMS verification. Email would’ve been nice too.
  • Lack of customization of features can lead to things like overbearing notifications.

7.5

Overall, this is a powerful application. It’s great if you’re older, disabled, or if you live in a shady neighborhood. It’s also great for parents who want to make sure their kids are okay. We would’ve liked to have seen a group rate for families, but the price isn’t horrifying. If you like what you see, give the 3-day trial a try.

Android L Will Have Data Encryption Turned On by Default

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Android-security-631x439

Android L, once it is eventually released, will feature data encryption turned on by default. This information has been revealed by Niki Christoff, spokeswoman for Google. And in doing so, the Mountain View company is joining Apple in the battle for user privacy and security.

Data encryption is nothing new in Android, as it has been available on certain Android devices since 2011. With the upcoming Android L release, which should happen next month, Google will add procedures to make the encryption automatic. This means that only those users who enter the device password will be able to listen to music, watch videos, or see the pictures on the device when it is connected to a computer or accessed manually.

“For over three years Android has offered encryption, and keys are not stored off of the device, so they cannot be shared with law enforcement. As part of our next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default out of the box, so you won’t even have to think about turning it on.”

– Google spokeswoman Niki Christoff

Google’s move is not surprising. Turning on an encryption is a response to Apple’s actions, as iOS 8 offers similar protection enabled by default as well. Both companies have now embraced a form of encryption that in most cases will make it much more difficult or impossible for law enforcement officials to collect evidence from users’ smartphones.

It remains to be seen whether this encryption will affect aftermarket Android development. TWRP already supports encrypted devices, so flashing a ZIP should still be possible. Hopefully Google will not change the encryption methods and just turn the feature on by default. Everything will be known next month when we see Android L’s official premiere.

First look at the Samsung Galaxy A5

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is one good looking phone, and that’s probably one of the best things we can say about it – it feels and looks like a premium phone, albeit having some middling specs. The rumored “A Series” smartphones from Samsung are expected to follow in the trail of the Galaxy Alpha, the first of which has arrived in the SM-A500, to be marketed reportedly as the Samsung Galaxy A5.

The Galaxy A5 will be the first in the three devices expected to come out of this series. It was expected to carry a metal body, taking from its predecessor, but that is not the case as it seems. Sam Mobile quotes an insider that says the material will not be plastic or metal, but something that “feels cold in the hand”. We expect it to be a cheaper alternative to metal – retaining the premium look but should not be as expensive to produce.

The specs will roll out this way – a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 13MP/5MP camera combo, 16GB of internal storage space, and Android 4.4 KitKat including the new version of TouchWiz seen on the Galaxy Note 4. The device will also have a 2,330mAh battery, which should last you through the day, or thereabouts.

SM-A500-2
SM-A500-3
SM-A500-4
SM-A500-GALAXY-A5-5
SM-A500-6

This is, from first look, a for real mid-tier device – although Samsung hopes that the premium “feel” will set it apart from the others in this niche. We sincerely hope that the A Series would throw up a surprise or two, seeing that Samsung has way too many devices on the mid-range level. What do you guys think?

iPhone 6 Plus vs OnePlus One quick look

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

The iPhone 6 Plus is intruding into Android territory. Thing is, the large-screen segment is already crowded with competitors of large caliber. We’ve already looked at how the Note 3 and LG G3 compare to the new 5.5-inch iPhone, and now it’s time for the OnePlus One to show what it’s made of.

The OnePlus One delivers top specifications and an optimized Android experience at half the price of the iPhone 6 Plus. But who wins when price is no consideration? Let’s see how these devices stack up in our iPhone 6 Plus vs OnePlus One comparison!

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (7 of 12)

Design

There’s no way around it – the iPhone 6 Plus is basically a stretched out version of its 4.7-inch sibling. You get the same full metal unibody construction, rounded edges all around, and the signature home button, with integrated fingerprint scanner, up front, all in a larger body.

iphone 6 plus aa (12 of 15)

Like other large Android devices, the OnePlus is more compact than Apple’s phablet, even if the screen’s the same size. There’s no metal here though, with the OPO coming in either a “baby skin” white version or a sandstone black version, which offer different textures as well.

While the OnePlus One is shorter and lighter, the iPhone 6 Plus is definitely thinner. At 7.1 mm, the 6 Plus is one of the thinnest smartphones you can get in this size category.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (3 of 12)

Both devices feel great in hand (the OPO is helped by its tapered profile) and are fairly easy to use even with one hand, when the situation requires it. The iPhone may feel more luxurious and sturdy, thanks to its metallic build, but the OnePlus offers the advantage of an improved grip, at least when it comes to the sandstone version.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (4 of 12)

Display

Apple giving into the trend of bigger smartphones means that the display comparison is a much more level playing field compared to past years.

The 6 Plus features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, while the OPO comes with a LTPS LCD screen of the same size. Both feature 1080p resolution, resulting in an identical pixel density of 401 ppi.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (8 of 12)

The experience is largely the same on both devices. We have to mention that some units of the OnePlus exhibit a yellowish tinge, but when that’s not the case, you get bright colors, good brightness, and great viewing angles. The iPhone 6 Plus uses a tech called dual-pixel domains to improve color accuracy when the screen is viewed at an angle, and it works as advertised for the most part.

Hardware and performance

The iPhone 6 Plus packs a dual-core A8 processor, clocked at 1.4 GHz, along with 1 GB of RAM. The OPO on the other hand comes with a processing package that is the current standard in the Android world, with its Snapdragon 801 chip clocked at 2.5 GHz, backed by 3 GB of RAM.

While there is an obvious difference on paper, it isn’t very evident in real world performance. Regardless what you do on these phones, you will have a smooth, quick experience.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (12 of 12)

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with 16, 64, 0r 128 GB of storage, while the OPO comes in 16 GB and 64 GB flavors. Neither offers the option of expandable storage, so you’ll want to plan ahead before opting for one configuration or the other. It’s probably worth investing in the 64GB model of the OnePlus, as it costs less than half the price of the 64GB iPhone 6 Plus, provided you can buy it in the first place.

Apple finally introduced NFC with their devices, even if the use is limited to just Apple Pay for now. Also worth noting is the return of the fingerprint scanner, which is convenient to use as an extra layer of security. Plus, starting with iOS 8, the fingerprint scanner can be used by third-party applications, opening the road for more interesting uses in the future.

Both phones feature non-removable batteries, but the OnePlus has a slight edge in capacity, thanks to its 3,100 mAh unit, compared to 2,915 mAh on the iPhone. We didn’t have time for proper battery tests, so the real world difference in longevity remains to be discussed.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (5 of 12)

Camera

The iPhone 6 Plus keeps the 8 MP rear shooter from its predecessors, though it comes with a new sensor, an f /2.2 aperture lens, faster autofocus, and optical image stabilization (which isn’t available on the iPhone 6). Video gets a boost too, especially with the ability to capture slow motion video at 240 fps in 720p resolution.

The 13MP Sony Exmor RS sensor of the OnePlus is combined with a 6 parts lens with an f/2.0 aperture, dual LED flash, and a great software package with many useful features, that allows for a great camera experience. On the front, you get a 5MP camera with a wide lens that enables an 80 degrees field of view, which is great for all selfie lovers out there.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus on quick look aa (2 of 12)

Software

On the iPhone 6 Plus, the iOS8 UI remains largely the same with iOS7 in terms of appearance. But there are many new features, such as support for third-party keyboards, widgets in the notification dropdown, and the new Health app. Probably the most exciting new feature is Continuity, which will allow the iPhone to work in tandem with Macs or iPads, so you can start a task on one device and continue on the other.

You also get the new “Reachability” feature, that lets you bring down the entire interface of the device with a double tap on the home screen. The same feature is available on the smaller iPhone 6, but it doesn’t make as much sense there due to the smaller size.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (9 of 12)

The OnePlus One runs CyanogenMod 11S, a release built specifically for the One to take advantage of all its hardware and features, and is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. You get a clean, minimalistic stock-like experience, with various customization options available easily from the device’s theme engine and store. Useful software features include voice commands that work even when the device is sleeping and the ability to launch favorite apps by drawing pre-set gestures on a sleeping screen.

iphone 6 plus vs oneplus one quick look aa (10 of 12)

Wrap up

While price isn’t usually a factor in flagship comparisons, because they tend to fall in the same price range, that certainly isn’t the case here. In their basic configurations, the OnePlus One can be bought for less than half the price of the iPhone 6 Plus.

Put another way, you could enjoy an experience that is largely comparable to the 6 Plus and still have money left for another device, say, for your significant other. That’s probably the ultimate selling point for the OnePlus.

Even when price isn’t an issue, these two devices are very close in terms of features, though obviously their different software platforms will make for distinct experiences.

What’s your take?  OnePlus One or iPhone 6 Plus?

Instapaper app updated, now free to download with IAP

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Instapaper is one of those apps that you really would appreciate in these modern, mobile-centric, fast-paced times – it allows you to store articles for reading, offline and formatted for easy reading. You know, those articles that litter your timeline on your social media platforms, those things that are interesting but you just don’t have enough time to go through at the moment. It used to be that Instapaper – for a fee – allowed you to store those for your downtime reading. An app update now brings Instapaper free, with in-app purchases.

It seems that Instapaper is going the “freemium” path with this new app update that includes text-to-speech, a layout redesign, and user profiles. The text-to-speech allows the app to “read” your stored articles to you when reading is not an option – like when commuting or driving. The layout redesign combines the various in-app feeds into one single feed.

Also, the new updated version introduces user profiles – either public or private. This means that users can share their profiles and if public, other users can see and read the articles you’ve stored within the app. Pretty nifty.

instapaper1

The developers point to the competition – free to download app Pocket, which basically does the same things – as their main inspiration to make the move to the “freemium” market. “When Pocket launched with a great, free product, it became harder to justify a paid product when we had a solid free competitor,” said betaworks General Manager Brian Donohue, which acquired the app in 2013. Tell us in the comments if this is a move that will make you jump over to Instapaper from Pocket. Download it at the source link.

Google’s App Indexing brings search engine power to locating apps

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Remember those heady days of 1998 where a lot of us were so amazed at the way the Google search engine could find virtually anything on the intarwebs? That was a result of ground breaking search indexing algorithms that placed Google on top of the search engine pile. Fast forward to now, and Google is set to apply the same algorithms so that your apps will show up in related searches better. Sounds yummy, right?

Google says that app information and content exist generally in silos, and generally the opinion about Google Play Store’s search function is pretty much negative. App Indexing will allow apps to appear in search engine results, making a way for app developers to engage their public better.

app_indexing_1

As an example, cyber-savvy people tend to have restaurant apps installed in their phones BUT still rely on search engine results for more relevant information. App Indexing connects the information on the search engine result page to a relevant app that you already own, and could encourage you to view the search engine result straight on your app.

That’s very good news for app developers, full stop. No wonder Google is very excited about this new feature. The mothership is encouraging developers to add the deep linking feature to their apps so that they could be the first to piggy back on this search engine innovation.

BombSquad is an explosive party game to share with friends

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

How does a party game that allows Android devices to take part look like? What does it need to bring to the table to be fun and engaging? Pardon the obvious pun in the title, but we feel like BombSquad – a game designed by Eric Froemling – really hits the nail on the head as a cooperative party game that users will have no problem picking up from the get go.

The game mechanics may be simple – but they’re challenging enough to not push users to the edge of boredom. Skill in the game will shine through, and people who have played the game before will have familiarity as an advantage. BombSquad is a bomb game, hence the name, and players expectedly will use bombs to blow up other players. There are power-ups galore and different bomb types with special abilities. You get the picture, right?

bombsquad_1

Bombsquad takes game design to absolute fun as it allows players the ability to sprint, jump, punch, and grab each other. Translate this to a gaming party and it is all boisterous enjoyment for everyone. If you’re thinking however that the game could become stale at some point, you will be right – but the developer has got you covered. Bombsquad has a slew of different game types to keep gameplay fresh and interesting, including football, tower defense, and other games where you can blow enemies up.

The game was previously only available for iOS devices, and then on the OUYA gaming console, before finally landing on Android. It’s a free download right now via the Google Play Store, with in-app purchases. You should get all your other friends who have Android devices to download the game so that the party can begin.
