Default Android on-screen keyboards are probably not the best and people constantly look for replacements. There are several apps available in the Play Store which are decent alternatives to the default keyboard, however, none of these have several features integrated into one single app. The new TypeSmart keyboard is the best keyboard that you can get for Android.
TypeSmart is the perfect replacement for the stock Android keyboard. Firstly, you can customize any key in order to start a function right from the keyboard. This means that you can activate speech recognition or keypad arrows directly from the keyboard using one single key. You can also create shortcuts for inserting specific words or phrases directly. For example, if you use the phrase “hey what’s up”, then you can easily create a shortcut to insert the particular phrase directly.
Punctuation marks and symbols are easily accessible within one or two key presses. You can also choose between a full alphanumeric keyboard using one swipe. The keyboard also supports various profiles in order to change the keyboard layout and language.
The TypeSmart keyboard also comes with a fully functioning translator and you can translate words and phrases in 50 different languages directly while typing. The translator is powered by Google Translate for accurate results.
One incredible feature of the keyboard is that you can change background wallpapers of the keyboard. You don’t need to stick to themes and you can easily set a background image of the keyboard from your Gallery.
Apart from all the advanced features, the keyboard also includes some modified basic features that you would want in any on-screen keyboard. The intelligent word prediction is built in and you don’t need to type full words. It also supports a learning dictionary and the keyboard can suggest word completion based on the typing history.
You can download the app from the Play Store using this link. However, you cannot get the latest version 2.0 from the Play Store.
