    Question What's the best keyboard app for the TT?

    Hi All. Was curious as to the opinion of you TT faithful on what app -- if any, you feel -- is the best keyboard app...was trying to choose between SwiftKey, Smart Keyboard PRO or IceCream Sandwich-ICS Keyboard? Are any of these apps honeycomb/tablet optimized? Thanks!

    I haven't gotten my TT yet but I had a Samsung Galaxy 10.1. I loved the Hacker's Keyboard. It resembles a standard PC Keyboard including cursor key (left, right, up and down.The keys are a little smaller then keyboards without #s but it still became my favorite especially when typing long paragraphs (having cursor keys make editing so easy)!Al

    I'm stuck on Swype. You can get to the cursor & editing keys after selecting '123' then Edit.
    Found my signature file, but it appears to be empty...

    I use the arrow keys a lot, so I need them on the top level and Hacker provides that. The only thing I've found lacking is a true CTRL key.

    Thumb keyboard and AI Type Tablet Keyboard for its cut/copy/paste keys. Also, they both have the split keyboard feature, which I find a is 'must have' in a tablet KB app.

    All Right!! I am a Swype fan also . Faster than pecking at other keyboards. Hold the Thrive with one hand, do all your swiping with the other, with one finger. It is a technology beyond typing for touch screen devices such as tablets. Why would anyone want to peck at keys (ie type) anymore?. I think it is learning how to do something very different? The more you use it, the more you dont think in terms of "what letters do I type next". You start to think in terms of the patterns for common words.

    Swype comes preinstalled on your Thrive.
