GO Keyboard is a highly regarded keyboard app for Android. It was one of the first third-party keyboards released for the platform, and it has continued to grow and improve since then.
Two ways to write
GO Keyboard offers two types of writing input: the traditional tapping on letters, and Swype. This second method has you slide your finger from one letter to the next without ever removing it from the screen. Unfortunately, Swype is not yet fully developed, leaving plenty of room for improvement.
Another feature that is improved over the default Android keyboard is its predictive-text. Though again, this is not on par with some of GO Keyboard's competition, such as the all-conquering
While not all of its functions are perfect, one area where GO Keyboard does excel is its customization. You are able to configure many aspects of this text entry app, including the language, height of keys, and emoticons. Many of these additional features must be downloaded separately from Google Play though, which can be a nuisance.
Very good, but not the best
In short, GO Keyboard is a good keyboard - solid, reliable, and free. But it is a step behind some of the other big keyboards for Android.
