Just installed the new Google keyboard for Android on my HTC One. Not sure how they did it, but somehow they managed to make it easier to hit the correct key!

According to Google, here is whats new and cool.

“Google Keyboard makes text input smart and easy. Glide through letters with Gesture Typing – just lift to finish a word, no space bar required. Compose notes on-the-go with Voice Typing. With amazing word recognition and next-word prediction, Google Keyboard helps you type faster and more accurately on all your Android devices.

Key features:
• Gesture Typing with dynamic floating preview
• Voice Typing
• Next-word suggestions and current-word completions
• Dictionaries for 26 languages
• Advanced keyboard layouts
• Works across your Android devices (tablets and phones)”


I have not tried the voice typing yet, because, well that seems silly, kind of like having a phone app on your phone, if I wanted to talk I would just call someone, but that’s just me I guess…

Overall, very pleased, seems very accurate to type now. The install was perfect too. Google simply walks you through 3 simple steps to enable the new keyboard and your done!
